If you don't like to party Valparaiso wouldQuite BrightNursing
If you don't like to party Valparaiso would be the school for you. A lot of times on weekends there isn't a whole lot going on and if there is it's usually one day of the weekend Friday or Saturday. If you would like to have a fun social life I would recommend attending another university. Academic wise, the curriculum at Valparaiso is difficult. It is a great school for academics but nothing else. There isn't much to do on the campus or even in the surrounding area. It is not an exciting university.

This school is great if you aren't intoQuite BrightMeteorology
This school is great if you aren't into the outdoors. I should have never come to NW Indiana, it was a huge mistake. I am on a sports team and love the people I have met but this place is a drag. Nw Indiana is ugly, tha land has been destroyed. The campus is small and does not offer and the city has no parks with miles of trails only pavement. I will be transferring, glad to have the experience though.

There grading way is the worst in MechanicalBrightMechanical Engineering
There grading way is the worst in Mechanical Engineering. I am transferring next semester because I work very hard and I dont get good grades. Two of my major classes the average grades are F and the prof does not think that is his mistake. Also, the campus looks great but valpo is very small and BORING, Do NOT come here, you will regret it.
