Valpo's academics are severely underrated. I'm an engineering major and the experiences I've had in classes and in labs have put me way ahead of my counterparts and landed me quite a few kick ass jobs and internships. Also the profs are awesome and generally very approachable but they will occasionally kick your butt a little with the most impossible exam you've ever seen (for example they might congratulate you on your final for getting a 60% because you have the best score in the class so far). Oh and if your thinking about engineering (or nursing apparently?): its hard, deal with it. You will have to live in the dorms the first few years (unless you join a frat) but don't worry they can be a great time (hall sledding/snowboarding, hall ping pong, hall streaking, hall water balloon launcher dodging, hall breaking shit with a frisbee, and hall stumbling from having a little too much to drink can all be quite fun). Valpo girls are a little shy and can get a bad wrap but once you get them to open up they all seem to be crazy kinky chicks (Except of course the Super God Squad who never open, it is a Lutheran school after all.) In the past the administration has been incredibly awful but there's new hope with the new President; he's got an earing and he's not a pastor so he's automatically an improvement over all previous presidents. The social life here is tiny to the point of non-existence. Yes, there are frat parties (though all the good ones seem to get put on probation) and dorm parties but they are all small and quiet. Despite this VUPD (the irritable fucks driving around pushing over grandmas, shooting kids on skateboards with tazers, and raiding frat houses with guns drawn... oh yeah the last two are actually true) seeks to ruin your shit. It does not matter if you obey the law or not, they will follow you, question you, arrest you, or at least molest you if you do not instantly and enthusiastically 'assume the position' at the very sight of them. They are undoubtedly the most inept police force I have ever had the good fortune to ask to lick my left nut sack. Also, get a car. Valparaiso is a small town but have no fear Chicago is near. There was a list of 110 things to do in Valparaiso... I read it once... #1 Go to Walmart. #2 GET THE FUCK OUT OF VALPO.
