Attending Dordt College wasSuper BrilliantPhilosophy
Attending Dordt College was one of the best decisions I ever made. Class sizes were small. Faculty was readily available. A Christian world-and-life view was integrated throughout the curriculum. My opinion of the education I received at Dordt has only grown with time.

I came to Dordt knowing it was locatedAverageSocial Work
I came to Dordt knowing it was located in the middle of nowhere, but I really wanted a genuinely Christian education. i definitely have that here. Due to its location, Dordt does have a lot of people who are closed-minded, but it just challenges me to know how to love more. The faculty are more than willing to help- they often give their cell phone number. It is not as hard as I thought it would be, but you can definitely create your own challenge. It may also be my major that is not that difficult.

Very much made up of students from thisQuite BrightAgriculture/Horticulture
Very much made up of students from this small town or other small towns like Sioux Center. They greatly advertise diversity to prospective students, but in all reality about 95% of students are white. There is absolutely nothing to do and no civilization within an hour. Students literally have fun by going to Walmart or the donut shop. Most of the people that are from here act very arrogant and think there is no better place than Sioux Center, IA. Many of the professors' tests are comprised of random facts and do not actually test whether or not the student understands the material at hand. I am greatly disappointed with my decision to attend this college.
