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.
Review University of Valley Forge
I love it here at Valley Forge University! As a young student, I've always longed for a place to learn, grow, and call a home. The University Valley Forge provided that and more!The leadership of the school is amazing because they're willing to work with you no matter the issue. The Professors teach with such FRIE and PASSION that it's unbelievable! Digital Media is a very big at UVF.
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!
