    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!

    It’s simply amazing everything from dorms to their academics! I haven’t spend much time here yet, but I know it’s the right choice for me. Almost all the professors have the highest degree earned in their field which means you’re getting an amazing education. The small student body makes for a more inclusive learning environment where it’s easy to ask questions.
    One of the things that was important to me when I was deciding on colleges was the ability to study abroad. I asked if my scholarship would cover the cost of the university abroad and was told it would transfer. When I actually went to apply, the financial aid office told me that the type of scholarship I had didn't transfer.

    Mostly, professors are wonderful. However, there are many faculty and staff that act like the 18-22 year olds they teach (if not more immature). They gossip with and/or about their students and other faculty members.

    The health center is atrocious. There's a doctor there 7-8am which doesn't allow for a sick student (and may be resting, as is recommended when one is ill) to come in to see someone. When there's no doctor there, the nurses are often cold and unhelpful. They can't give you medication and don't seem to want to. The mental health "professionals" don't take you seriously and the whole counseling process is really a joke.
