Overall, I think Valparaiso is an above average school. Although it is expensive, I believe that in the long run, the cost is worth it. You get an education that allows you to get to know everyone in your classes, as well as getting to know the teachers as well. The part of Valparaiso I liked the most is the athletics. I am a part of the men's soccer team, and it has had a life changing impact on me. Being a part of the athletics community has been incredible for me, and well worth all the work involved.
Overall I'm grateful to be attending a prestigious school such as Valparaiso University. I have enjoyed my first year year and plan to graduate from here in the spring of 2016. What i like most at Valpo has to be the friendly people. Coming here I knew no one and the staff as well as upperclassmen made my transition easy and assisted me with anything I needed. I ultimately was able to have a great learning experience here on the campus. I really believe Valpo was the best choice for me and would recommend this university to others.
