One of the most important aspect of picking the right college is to pick one that is friendly. They have to make you seem like that is where you belong and that will be fun and fulfilling to go to. If they don't make you feel accepted on your visit, they probably won't make you feel accepted when you're a student. Also, pick a college that is comfortable to be at, whether it be distance-wise, religious-wise or any other factor, there needs to be a connection between the student and the goals and community of the college. Overall, you shouldn't pick a college that you feel forced to attend, even after you've been there for an extended period of time.
There is not a whole lot of diversity here, people do not get a very real world experience by coming here. Its more of a happy-go-lucky little Dutch Reformed college that is rather sheltering.
I wish I knew that everyone acts the same in college as they did in high school, and you can always find someone to hang out with.
My classmates are very hard working, but they still like to have fun and have social lives.
The best thing about Dordt is the community. You will get to know many people from all classes. Everyone says hi when walking around campus. Dordt is located in a small, farming area and that helps the students to get to know others outside campus through church and various events. On and off campus, I feel comfortable and like I am at home.

Because of its small size, classes are not always offered every semester or at more than one time slot, so it can be hard to fit in all the classes you need.
It is small, so you tend to build better relationships. You know that the professors genuinely care about you.
