I am a second year at Wartburg, and so far I have had an amazing experience. My professors have provided me with awesome opportunities to expand my skills and gain experience in my field. I have also gotten to meet so many wonderful people in the community and on campus. Everyone on campus is very willing to help, and wants to see every student succeed, which I think is awesome. The professors know all of their students by name, and know about them as well. I have been able to build valuable relationships that will help me in my future career. Overall, Wartburg is a great school, and I would recommend it to anyone!
Review Wartburg College
Wartburg College is a great school to attend for any major. The small campus makes it easy to build close relationships with other students and faculty members. Because of its small size, Wartburg encourages involvement in a variety of different activities. Our athletes are top of the line and our teams are among the best in our division. For me Wartburg is important because it is one of only two schools in the US that offer my double major of Music Education and Music Therapy. I love the music department and all the faculty. They are all so supportive and have your best interest at heart. There are always events on campus and the diversity is great! Wartburg and the city of Waverly just recently hosted a music festival the brought around 30,000 people. Even though Wartburg is a small school the social side of it is great! I love Wartburg College and can't imagine myself going anywhere else.
The professors at Wartburg College are very kind and helpful; they truly want you to succeed. We have an office called Pathways which I have found to be very helpful. The people in Pathways have offered to talk to other faculty or offices for me when I need financial advice and their counseling services are great. This college can put you through hell in terms of paying for it and the financial aid office doesn't do much to help, but there are other members of the college who will do everything to help you succeed.
