Dordt College Reviews
I love Dordt College because of the friendships and the community I have experienced here. As a student wanting to grow in my education as well as my Christian faith, this place has helped me become the person that God has created me to be. I am going into my sophomore year of college, and I was so excited to come back! It is home to me. The small class sizes allow me to get to know more students and my professors on a first-name basis. There is not much that I would recommend they change. This school is a great choice!
My top three favorite things about Dordt is the welcoming community, professors that really care about you and your education, and the Christ-centered atmosphere. Dordt sits in a small, conservative town in Northwest Iowa with a deep Dutch and Christian Reformed heritage. There is a Walmart and multiple restaurants in town and Sioux City and Sioux Falls are both around an hour away. Everyone is very welcoming at Dordt and with a small condensed campus you're sure to run into friends and acquaintances on your way to class.
I LOVE it at Dordt. The education is great, professors are friendly, and campus is so fun! The community here is amazing and I've made so many friends in the past two years. If you're looking for a great Christian college, check Dordt out!
