Wartburg College is a school that challenges itsBrightChemistry
Wartburg College is a school that challenges its students in all aspects of their life (academically, athletically, spiritually (if you choose)). This college has a beautiful campus, and offers many diverse extra-curricular activities to enrich ones interests from ballroom dancing class to student senate to rugby. There is definately something for everyone. The surrounding town is a good size and is safe and small enough to allow students to focus on academics. If students are looking for more activities then what is provided in town or on campus, then taking a trip to neighboring cities and other colleges and universities is possible, due to Wartburgs location (Half-hour to two hours drive). The faculty is great. They are supportive and offer their help and knowledge to students seeking it. The students display high comradery, and this is mainly due to the great atmosphere. The classrooms and lab facilities are technologically advanced with the new science building (2003) and student union (2004). The downsize is that Wartburg College could use more dorms and some updating on the current ones. Although I have only completed one year at this institution I look forward to finishing my next three. If you are looking for a small college this is one to definately take a look at.

I was at Wartburg in 1990.Quite BrightReligion/Religious
I was at Wartburg in 1990. My advice is stay off away from the school if God means a thing to you. Students generally friendly and mostly Lutheran. The one thing this school did teach me was about some liberal individuals in history. Problem is its not relevant often to success in business world today. And it DEFINITELY is not worth your time if you are serious about God. I found most LUTHERAN students there didn't have the slightest relationship with God. They simply could not relate to what a personal relationship with God is, at all. Luther knew God much much better than the people on this campus. The school had a nice campus, great food and friendly people, but the students and faculty there think they know God when they don't. I took a class in contemporary theology for instance, and the professor teaching it taught a bunch of largely heretical theologians like they were the voice of God (Karl Barth, Schliermacher? others). He had his students hyped that this stuff was the greatest in the world, when in truth, most of these theologians are very very bad heretical theologians. This class should have been taught to expose the errors of the theologians and how their theology destroyed many churches, instead, the professor wanted his students to believe these men were the greatest in the world. Wartburg seminary follows the same garbage. As a Christian, I would not go near Wartburg College or the Wartburg seminary (in Dubuque) for any desire to serve God unless you want unBiblical weak trash. Not all Lutheran churches are bad, but the vast majority are false unbelieving churches and their colleges and seminaries usually reflect this.
