University of Valley Forge Reviews
This is a different school than it was just a few years ago. The professors have always been wonderful - they truly care about the students and offer a quality academic experience. The culture and environment, however, have truly transformed in recent years. Jesus is the center here!
Great Christian University. There's plenty of services during the week, as well as worship too. Very friendly, outgoing student environment. Student environment is always ready to smile and greet anyone walking around campus. The Staff/Professors are always available. The Staff/Professors also are absolutely amazing. They are there to help and provide any support and guidance as much as possible. Classes are on the smaller side which makes for great interaction with the Professors. Plus, the tuition costs for a university are absolutely on the cheaper end compared to many others. Overall a great university to grow in your faith while earning your degree.
The atmosphere of UVF is very comfortable and homey! The professors are exceptional and they take their time getting to know each of their students. The food is average, but the coffee shop (Jazzman's) on campus is really good!
