Valley Forge has so much to offer their students spiritually, academically .. don't get discouraged by one or two that threaten to make your experience undesirable. You get out of it what you put into it. I struggled with the amount of theological writing and research I had to do but it made me a better person! I do not like Dr. Dan Mortenson, Jonathon Capeci and a few other administrative persons who have not treated members of the phoenixville community well. They are concerned about money and nothing else! Even if it means robbing good hard-working people of their livelihood. They are wolves in sheep's clothing! Be careful not to expose yourself or personal struggles to those in authority. Speak with a professor or trusted friend or you'll regret it!
The University of Valley Forge was the only school I applied to. The very first time I stepped on campus I knew that this was where I was supposed to be. Now that I am completing my Freshman year, I have to say I still feel that way. I am over 300 miles from home, but UVF has become my home away from home. My professors, advisers, student leaders and friends have become part of my extended family and these are the relationships that last a lifetime! What makes UVF unique, in my opinion, is the unity of the student body; sure not everyone gets along all of the time, but we are called to one purpose and to serve the people around us with love and compassion.
I am a second semester freshman, and so far I really like my classes. Most of the professors present very interesting lectures, although some can be hard to focus on at times. Their digital media program is pretty impressive because, although it's a pretty small school, they have some really great quality equipment and the professors are really dedicated to seeing you succeed. You also get the chance to practice some of your skills live during chapel.
