It is a good college, but it is very expensive. One major problem with Wartburg is its accessibility. I have a blind friend who has a hard time here because nothing is labeled in braille (even though it should be by law). Other than that, it is a welcoming and wonderful school.

Wartburg College is a tight-knit Lutheran community. Most students are either involved in music or in athletics. Dining options are below average-- meal plans all cost the same, and healthy options are extremely limited. If you don't party or go out, it can be difficult to socialize and make friends; however, as classes become more rigorous for upperclassmen, I feel that this attitude will change. Wartburg is academically challenging and expensive.

I feel that Wartburg College is great for people who like small class sizes and knowing everyone at the school. Personally if I were not in a sport I would not be here only because I want to go to a big university. It is a very friendly environment and I would recommend anyone that is okay with a small campus and enrollment size.

I really love Wartburg College. It was my number one choice, and I honestly would love to graduate from Wartburg. It has a small, yet absolutely beautiful campus, and amazing facilities. Class sizes are small, and the professors genuinely care about how you are doing academically and personally. My only issue is the price, and the lack of resources. I'm currently going through an extreme amount of stress over paying off this semester so that I can stay, with the knowledge that I may be forced to transfer after my second year because I won't be able to afford it. There is nothing I can do, even though I'm a good student. Overall, the school itself is amazing.

Wartburg College is not just a college to me, it's a home. People treat one another as if they were family. Additionally, there are countless organizations that are available to join that only heightens this feeling of family. Everyone has a chance to be included and I love it there.

I love Wartburg so much! I have met so many amazing people and everybody is so friendly and welcoming. The professors are extremely helpful and the class sizes are a great size to get the help that you need. The atmosphere here is a great and the sense of community makes you feel like you belong. There is no other college I would rather be at.

Wartburg is unique because of the atmosphere of the school. Wartburg College's Mission Statement states, "Wartburg College is dedicated to challenging and nurturing students for lives of leadership and service as a spirited expression of their faith and learning." When I toured campus, I could see that each and every student and faculty member embodied this statement. The professors were dedicated to their students education. Based on the other schools I toured, Wartburg College's practical home-like atmosphere is what drew me to this college.
The biggest piece of advice I would give my high school self would be that it is perfectly fine to not know what you want to do. In high school, I was caught up in how I had envisioned my future. From the car I would own to the career I would hold, I had every ounce of my life planned. I entered into college, and my life did a back flip. I realized I no longer wanted to be a physical therapist, but on the other hand, I had no idea want I wanted to do because I had never considered an other professions. This made my transistion into college even harder and more stressful than it already was. To put it lightly, I was lost. Now, I am three months away from completing my first year of college, and I realized that somehow I ended up on the right track from me. College is an eye opener, and it changes your points of veiw on life. Be open to change, and be happy living in the unknown for a little while.
The thing I brag about most at my school would have to be the skywalks that connect all the academic buildings. In Iowa's brutally harsh winters, I never have to walk outside unless I am going to my dorm hall. I did not factor this into my decision of choosing a school when I chose my school, but it is one feature that I am grateful for everyday it's below zero. It makes going to class more bearable.

Going to college has given me plenty of opportunities to learn and acknowledge my bad habits, strengths, weaknesses, and fears. It made me grow up from the immature qualitites that I possessed in high school. If I were to give my high school self a piece of advice, it would be to take advantage of the people who are in my life, and to get out of my own way. What held me back in my first year of college was my low confidence. It interefered with my performance in my courses where I am not strong in, and it held me back from so many opportunities. I guarantee that if I practice being more confident and stop fearing my own success, I will be much happier and mentally stronger in college. It is all about your mindset when it comes to being independent. Your mindset reflects on your actions. Having a strong mind allows you to defeat those obstacles and fears in college. Sometimes you have to just "do it" and do not be afraid to fail. College is all about making mistakes, but then learning from them and applying what you learned to your life.
I wish I would have learned the importance of working hard. It is hard to get into college with poor grades and a low GPA. It is especially difficult to stay in school when you do not qualify for academic scholarhips. Working diligently and putting your all into anything that you do pays off in the end. Although there are many sacrifices that comes with committing yourself to hard work, it is a very rewarding outcome when you can look back and there are no lost opportunities or regrets.
The worst thing about my school would be the diversity on campus. My college brings in many students from all over the world, but when they get there the school does not do anything with them. In this case, there are so many opportunities to enhance the school and attract more newcoming students, but they do not take advantage of them. Most of the time, the minority and international population on campus leave the school because they do not feel a part of the campus.
