Dordt College Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish I had known how to register for classes or change my first semester schedule. I also wish I had known how kind and welcoming everyone would be so I wasn't so nervous.


Before coming to Dordt, I wish that I would have known more about the food service. We have alright service, but the food tends to lack quality and "deliciousness." Not that this is a huge hinderance, just something that I wish that I would have been better prepared for.


That I needed certain classes to transfer from my community college.


I wish I knew just how cold it gets here.


I wish I had better understood what college life was all about. I did not understand that college involved both academic, social, and spiritual responsibilities. I also wish that I was better prepared to handle life on my own, half-way across the country from my family.


I wish I would have known that there were going to be struggles when it came to academics and social life.


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.


Nothing, I felt that I was very prepared to attend Dordt.
