Martin Luther College is an extremely safe environment for Christian learning to become a teacher or a pastor. The staff is very kind and regularly available, the class size is small enough for regular one on one learning from the professors. Martin Luther College is the perfect place to study to become a Christian teacher and serve God with your abilities.

John - 10/04/2018

    There are so many choices to be made: what school to go, what major to decide, what meal plan! Just take a deep breathe! There are many students who go through these decisions. What you want to do is talk to other students from different universities and different majors to see what fits you. If you choose wrong that is okay! College is a time for change! I have transfered schools once and I have changed majors three times! Even with all this change I am still on the right track and becoming even closer to my goal of becoming a teacher (even though I didn't know I wanted to do this at first). Talk things out! Have fun, it's college, you only get this experience once in your life. So make the most of it.
