The atmosphere here is great for those like myself who came to school knowing nobody. The faculty helped the transition to college very easy, they made me feel welcome here. There were icebreaker activities set up including a weekend camping trip -- F-U-N! There are monthly days dedicated to career readiness skills. No classes and famous entrepreneurs, athletes, etc. visit to tell success stories and tips to put us on the right track. But, these days aren't strictly business. They're an opportunity to travel to different cities and see things like museums & other experiences that you can simply enjoy yourself. Heidelberg's teachers are so amazing, with small class sizes they tend to each student and are easy to get one-on-one help. There is a very diverse population to our student organizations. Our unlimited access to our all-you-can-eat cafeteria makes it easy for healthy eating with fresh products and is very wide range of foods that cater to different diets. The Berg is awesome!

Heidelberg is mediocre at best. Classes are average at best. The school's academic focus is on retaining paying students, so it felt like professors were teaching to the lowest denominator in, which made classes boring and lacking challenge.

The president placed a heavy emphasis on athletics. I gave up respecting the school when they dropped the orchestra and replaced it with an athletic marching band. It was a signal of their real priorities.

Finally, they only valued as a paying customer. The president made this clear every time he spoke publicly as he only ever spoke about selling the school. He is extraordinarily uninspiring, and his career history in big business reveals itself as he talks about education as a commodity.

If you are a student that wants an easy college degree, then Heidelberg is a good choice, but if you're serious about learning, I would pick a more inspiring university. It is why I left after three semesters.
I love Heidelberg! It is very welcoming and the faculty care a lot about their students. The extra-curriculars are amazing which include sports, music, Greek life, educational organizations and more. One fun on campus event is the Harry Potter Fest which happens every spring semester
