Wartburg College Reviews
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.
The atmosphere at Wartburg College is beyond wonderful. From the moment that I stepped onto campus, I knew that Wartburg was going to be my future home away from home. Everyone is so bright and inviting. Many people come to a smaller college thinking that students must get bored being on campus all the time, but this is far from the truth. There are always events that are happening on campus. There are also many ways to get involved on campus including the many organizations that exist, the amazing music program, the all-around stellar sports program, work, and the list goes on and on. As far as academics goes, we have some very top-level programs on our campus. We have employers that will specifically seek out Wartburg graduates because they know that their education will have them prepared to do an outstanding job in the workforce. The professors know the name of every student in class and are advocates for the students' educations.
I really like the campus, the area, the programs academic or otherwise and the opportunity provided to be apart of a community in whatever way suits any individual. However I would like to see a little more involvement and direction given to students when it comes to the logistics of things. Advising in almost all areas could use major improvement, just telling someone to go figure it out for themselves isn't necessarily the best course of action, especially when it comes to the amount of money being spent to attend a school such as this. Whether it be advising on the academic front, or advising students on the financial front, I feel that some work could be done.
