My experience at Wisconsin Lutheran was amazing. It was really nice even as I was a commuter! I loved the aid I received not only from my professors, but my classmates as well. The friendly people all around campus helped me to stay cool and focused on being on my "A game". I simply felt the positive desire to want to do well since I had positivity pushing on me. The experience was great. I aspire to continue to do well and keep my head up. Being at WLC motivates me to be an awesome student. It has molded me to be goal- oriented, so that I may surely have future success in my desired career, which is Theology.
Although I have only been in school for less than a month, I am already feeling comfortable and enjoying my experience here at WLC. The professors and staff are all extremely friendly, willing to help at the shortest notice. Academics are on the high end here which means a lot to me that WLC is so gifted. There is also a lot of fun activities to do that I am overwhelmed with stuff. It is amazing!
Wisconsin Lutheran College is a small Christian liberal arts school located in the residential area of Milwaukee. That being said, it does happen to be in a considerably convenient locations with many clinical/internship opportunities in the area. However, it is a small school so is a bit mundane at times. The Warrior Events Board on campus tries to counteract this by providing activities both during the week and on the weekend... The success of their efforts is subjective. But a benefit of a small school lies in academics. Since the student to faculty ratio is 12:1, the professors know you by name and are willing to help you outside of class if needed. Also, it takes like 5 minutes to walk to class. Not to mention, the Res Halls and on campus apartments are definitely high quality.
