Wartburg College Reviews
I am attending there this fall. I love Wartburg because the staff knows me, even though I am not an official student. Whenever I have questions about the coming school year, the people I email respond almost immediately. The music department is wonderful and cares for its students. The art department has a lot of variety in classes and people involved. There are plenty of on-campus job opportunities, along with many places close to campus to work. I already have a job for this coming fall that I am extremely excited for!
Wartburg is defiantly worth it! I've met the best friends and people along the way. Everybody makes it feel like home and are so welcoming. There are tons of diversity people on campus and we are all involved in helping them fit in and having the best experience in the states as possible. The teachers are all understanding and want to be a parent influence when you're there since our parents aren't there to help us when it's needed. Overall the education programs are amazing and I can't wait for my Nursing program to start. The food is really good and they have different variety's of food. For example, I am vegetarian so they have vegetarian dishes available everyday 3 times a day. I love Wartburg and I'm glad I chose this school to help me with my education.
As a freshmen at Wartburg, I have felt very welcomed into the Wartburg family and also Waverly as a community. Coming from a small town, Wartburg has provided me with many opportunities to meet new people and try new things. As a Elementary Education major, Wartburg offers the opportunity to work inside a classroom your first semester to discover if teaching is for you. Wartburg also offers a variety of career pathway services to help students discover life after Wartburg. As a member of the track team, the coaches and other athletes have helped me to adjust to college life and provided new friends to hang with.
