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.
Review Wisconsin Lutheran College
I may just be starting official college life next month, but I already feel as though I am part of something bigger. Last weekend, I attended the WOW session, which is designed to help freshman meet other freshman, and get a feel for the layout of the campus. The experience was amazing! I cannot wait until I begin my next journey with WLC next month.
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!
