    Overall my experience as a student at Wisconsin Lutheran College has been incredible. It is clear that the professors on campus love what they do and care about the success of the students. They will ask about the students' lives outside of school to get to know them better and work to accommodate for issues that may arise in the students' lives in and outside of school. Many of the professors go above and beyond what is expected of them when a student needs special accommodations for a project or test ensuring that the student learns and grows in their class. This has been done by extending a deadline, allowing a student to take a test in the library instead of the classroom setting, or setting up an appointment with the student to go step-by-step through a project the student is struggling with. However, the professors also push students to excel and set high expectations for the assignments and classroom atmosphere.

    I am an alumnus of both the undergraduate and graduate programs at WLC. Originally planning to attend a larger state school, I toured WLC late in my college search and immediately fell in love with the campus and the people. I've never regretted my decision and continue to appreciate the personal relationships and support I received. The campus is beautiful, the residence halls are among the best in the country, and the academic quality is excellent.
    I am a sophomore at Wisconsin Lutheran College and I am a nursing major. So far I love going to school here! The students and faculty are so nice and caring for every single student. At the end of my 4 years I will be leaving with a nursing degree that will set me up for a great career in the future. I also play softball at WLC and that gives me the perfect outlet to continue to play the sport I love at a colleigente level.
