Viterbo University Reviews

Viterbo University is a great environment to learn in. The school offers grants and scholarship for students to help pay for tuition. The students have great relationships with professors. Majority of the professors care about the students and will reach out if you seemed off that day in class to make sure you are okay. The school offers free tutoring sessions for the first few semesters. But once you reach junior and senior year, unless you are a nursing student, the tutor sessions kinda stop because those classes are only offered every other year.

I love how welcoming Viterbo University is! You can sense the hospitality when you are on campus, and everyone here wants you to succeed. It is a small and home-like feel that makes everyone feel welcome.
I love Viterbo due to the positive atmosphere it has. It has great values and principles like service, hospitality, stewardship, integrity, and contemplation. The staff really do care about each individual student and they strive to make a positive difference in students' lives. Everyone is very friendly and accepting of everyone. It's also a safe environment. They have good security. The campus strongly encourages service Saturdays and other service-type mission work. It's a Catholic school and it really lives up to it's religious mission statement.
