I thought the campus was very nice. I was there for the Dorian Festival, a choir celebration. The few days I was there, I felt very comfortable and safe. All the students were friendly, as were the professors. Overall, it seemed like an awesome college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have considered transferring from Luther ever since the second 7 weeks of my first semester. When I would visit my friend's at other schools, there was more to do (shopping, going out to eat, activities around campus, etc.) and I fully believe that Decorah's location and Luther's small campus feel makes the students feel isolated and separated from others. This correlates to a large amount of the students who report poor mental health and a sense of not being apart of what was presented to us students as "a terrific community." Students still sit alone at tables while they eat, the students involved in athletics sit at their "designated" table: it resembles aspects of a high school film that should have never been released. So, why do I still attend Luther? To put it frankly: I do not. After back-and-forth, I decided to transfer and it was the greatest thing I could have did for myself, mental health, socialization, and many other aspects of my life that were lacking while I attended Luther. The school is nice, pretty, and has a curriculum that encompasses challenging academics, but personally, I would have rather spent $25,000 somewhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This college gives a new take on what it means to go to a small, private school. It’s not the sort of small school where it’s always quiet and people just focus solely on what their major is. A liberal arts education is what students who go here genuinely want to achieve. You’ll never hear a student complain about taking a science class as a music major or an art class as a nursing major. People in this place seek out global citizenship, and hope to not only get an amazing education, but want to become an amazing human.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly really do love Luther College. It is my dream school. From the very first time I stepped on campus on my college visit, it has felt like home. All of my professors I have has so far have gone above and beyond for us students. The entire culture at Luther is a supportive community, you can't go anywhere without someone saying hi or holding the door open for you. This sense of community last a lifetime too, I have only competed one year at Luther so far and I have had countless random run ins with Luther Alum who always willing to share in fond memories from their time on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Luther College is a great school. They have an amazing study abroad program and have great food! My favorite part of Luther College is the sense of community present. I feel very at home in Decorah. I also love the scenery and campus environment. Luther students are very active and can often be seen participating in outdoor activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Luther College is a great place if you want to be challenged intellectually, become part of a vibrant community in Decorah, and make wonderful friends. However, it is known for it's "Luther Bubble," which refers to the fact that it is an oasis for all things college kids dream of, but is so detached from reality. If you go to Luther, be prepared for the debt. Although I treasure my time there and my major (a strong point for the college), I would not do it again. It's not worth the debt or the let down after you leave.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Luther college is a great college to attend especially if you are looking for a liberal arts college. I am in love with the liberal arts style of education. Everyone here is so intelligent and great to be around. The only thing that needs improvement is the sense of racial diversity. I come from a larger city and there are people from all over and i love it, coming to Luther and being in a small town there isn't nearly as many people of color here. I would like to see more of that here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the people here, although the pricing is a little scary... nevertheless, they do their best to help you out. Classes are very engaging and do a wonderful job at relating to the outside world. The faculty are readily available, and facilities have a large window of open hours, there are so many nice places to study and you might even consider studying outdoors on the green lawn, which is quite relaxing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is in a small town so there is less option for eating, shopping, etc. The landscape is beautiful and full of hills. The people are mostly nice but tend to keep to themselves. The food is generic Sodexo. Overall the campus is safe; you can leave your dorm unlocked but there's minimal lighting around campus-- walking in the dark can be scary.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Luther College is very supportive of students. They want to work with students to make sure they are comfortable and get the most out of their education. Professors want all students to succeed and will work hard to help students do so. They want to create relationships with students to get to know them. Overall, everyone on campus is friendly and is willing to help out. Students are challenged by academics and are able to participate in sports, music or other activities.
