Waldorf College is amazing. Sure, it's a small school, but there is so much going on! Student Life is huge at Waldorf--there's activities almost every night of the week and at least one or two big events per weekend: comedians, visiting writers, school dances, campus ministry events, athletic and fine arts events, etc. Athletics and Fine Arts are big at Waldorf as well. About 90% are involved in some type of extracurricular activity. Faculty and staff are amazing--always available, supportive, and knowledgeable. The campus is friendly, and very home-feeling. There are so many opportunities to learn grow, make friends, and have fun. Campus diversity is also huge--students from different countries, states, and areas. I love my experiences here!
Review Waldorf University
Waldorf University so far has been a great school with outstanding staff. The only issue I have is that for some reason I am constantly being assigned new academic advisors and student services representatives which make it hard to have someone who knows your college goals. Especially with me being an online only student it would be nice to have had the same person working with me throughout my college career.
I love the friendly atmosphere and programs that the residence life staff organize. They do a fantastic job!
