Waldorf is a multidisciplinary school that provides resident and online programs to many students of different backgrounds. I am a United States Military member pursing my education to become an Emergency Management professional. I am proud to study at Waldorf because I feel understood and provided for. Professors and staff are willing to work around erroneous schedules and difficult times in life. The online experience provides a great personal manner that relates the student and entire class together with the professor.

Every professor and staff member I've dealt with has been professional, caring, and supportive. My educational goals are given a highlight and I am driven to achieve and exceed them with a backbone of faculty and students to help.

Starting my freshman year at Waldorf, I thought that this school was going to be the best fit for me. I was wrong. I was involved in band there, which I was not a fan of because of the organization and quality. The academics felt like they were easier than my high school classes ever were, but the professors were all really nice. Maybe for the right person this University could be the right fit, but definitely not me. They do offer really good scholarships, so you really don't have to take out loans.
Waldorf University is a fantastic university! The academic programs, professors, faculty, and staff members are awesome!
