The University of Valley Forge is a university with an atmosphere like no other. We are a Christian University and because of that the students here strive to be the best we can be in our relationships with Christ. Christianity is clearly represented in all classes offered here, and they help develop your own worldview. I would not trade my education here for anything! I love being part of a university that helps me grow in my knowledge, but also in my relationship with Christ.

The one thing that I love about this school is that everyone here is so accepting of who you are, and they love you for it (it almost feels like Mr. Rogers Neighborhood). This school has some great professor, and an academic program that can't be beat unless you went to an Ivy League school or something, cause they're pretty good too. The food here may not be the best, but is any school going to have great food? I think not. The University of Valley Forge can really changchange your life, just like its has with mine. It doesn't matter was rcolored skin you have or what background you come from, we all people,here to be great and succeed.
Loved my experience at UVF. The University is really changing for the better. Better food, better staff, more renovations. It feels like the leadership is listening to the students and making an effort to improve. The Lord is still working in and through this University in a big way!
