What is your overall opinion of this school?

Valparaiso has always been one of my favorite universities near me and I have wanted to go there since I was in high school. Their facilities, such as the library, cafeteria, and classrooms are what make it so desirable. Their entire campus is so beautiful and it makes you feel at home when you go to it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy Valparaiso University. I am currently in my third year and I have lived on-campus all three years. The housing is pretty good. If there is anything wrong with anything in the room, you simply put in a work request and maintenance comes to fix things pretty quickly. The campus is also very small and it is easy to get to know everyone and even the professors because the class sizes are fairly small. Overall, I really like the university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hi everyone. My name is Alexis Rudolph. I live in Portage Indiana and I attend school at Valparaiso University. The environment at Valparaiso University is unlike that of many universities. We have students from across 50 different countries. In my first year at Valparaiso University, I had the privilege of meeting and becoming very close friends with one of the students from Pakistan. His name was Abdus. I spent the entirety of the first semester learning about his culture and beliefs. We taught each other various things about our customs. He taught me how to speak a few words in his native language, Urdu: such as One… Two… Three… Four… Five… are equivalent to Ek, Do, Teen, Char, Panch. Another thing I learned is about his religious beliefs. As a Muslim, he believes in no physical contact until marriage, even an innocent handshake. We spent many hours exchanging stories and discussing political ideologies. His main beliefs revolve around the idea of placing women above all other entities. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities and friendships that Valparaiso University has provided me with. I have learned new information that I will carry with me throughout my future endeavors. And I have a friendship that I will cherish forever.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Valparaiso University is unique for a number of reasons. One of the top reasons is the eclectic nature of the activities that are available. Some of the extracurricular activities include: lecture series over relevant cultural topics, recreational sports, interest groups such as the Asian-American Pacific Islander Coalition, and social organizations. These are just a few examples of the way that Valparaiso University provides the opportunity for experiential learning while in school. In addition, the Valpo community is a very tightly knit group. The smaller size of the university allows students the opportunity to get to know their professors on a personal level, and to engage with other students deeply. Overall, Valparaiso University will provide an excellent experience to any student who is looking to expand his or her horizons.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before attending Valparaiso University, I was hesitant on attending a religious university since I have no religious knowledge or interest. However, I have enjoyed my time here so much. Everyone is so friendly here and all the different classes that I have taken have really expanded my understanding of the outside world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Valparaiso University has a welcoming atmosphere the moment you walk on to campus. A few aspects that drew me to VU were the small class sizes, the personable professors, and the amazing teaching program they offered. In my three years at Valparaiso University, I have been not only been able to meet one on one with my professors for help, but also the chair of the education department; I feel this shows how personable the campus is. Another aspect of VU that I love is the Sorority and Fraternity life; it has led me to multiple leadership opportunities on and off campus. Overall Valparaiso University has constantly been providing me with an amazing education and opportunities that will benefit me in my post-grad life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Valparaiso University is a very welcoming and open school. It allows individuals from completely different backgrounds, including different countries, to feel accepted and comfortable at all times. The classes themselves bring about interaction among individuals that seem the most unlikely to have anything in common. All of the organizations around campus plan events that all students can attend and the athletic sporting events can always be looked forward to throughout the academic year.
