4 College Freshman

Majors: It is fairly easy to get into MLC. For spanish you have to be a dedicated student. There is a lot of work that goes into it, so you really have to be willing to work. There is nothing abnormal about the process.

Academics: The academic part of MLC is wonderful. For spanish, the workload is very intense and it takes a lot of time. But you learn a lot while doing your homework. I really enjoy the professor and my class.

Majors: I am very happy with my elementary and secondary spanish education major. I would do the same thing again if I could do it over. I would like to one day teach spanish in a high school classroom.

Parking: Parking is $80 for the year which is not too bad. There is plenty of parking. Upperclassmen usually get the best spots.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very dafe. There has never been a time where I felt unsafe. There is security that walk around campus too at night.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants around campus. The McDonalds is open 24/7 along with Perkins which is always nice. But there is no Culvers. There is an Applebees which is always packed with college kids.

Campus Strictness: The college is strict on following the rules around here. It's a good thing to keep students in check.

Majors: You go here because you know what you are going for

4 College Senior

Weather: The college is small yet beautiful, the landscape is gorgeous and the lake with two gazebos by it adds a little serenity to the place. There is more than adequate parking and plenty to do on campus to keep you busy. Fining a job in the community is easy and the nearest mall is 30 min away. Everyone knows everyone. People can be either laid back or stuck up its about a 50/50 mix. The teachers either really care or are stuck up too. Room size is slightly larger than average and the music program here is exceptional. The chapel is the centerpiece hosting 1200 people + and fridge cold are in summer and heat in winter. The cafeteria is open for an amazing 17+ hours on weekdays and has two glass atriums to the outside were you may enjoy your food. Its athletic field is a little small and there is not a lot of fun activities to do off campus. It is a dry campus.

Campus Housing: The buildings are old, but kept up very well. We have free laundry and all upperclassman are very helpful. Dorms are very close to classes which make it nice, especially when it snows.

Academics: I came to MLC for a great christian education, specifically teaching. MCL doesnt have as many extracurricular activities as other schools, which is why I give it a B+ rating. Professors are excellent.

Diversity: All Germans for the Most Part. A huge portion of the student body is German because it is a Lutheran institution. Therefore, many of the students come from "area Lutheran" high schools that are typically small and not diverse at all.

Academics: Few Teachers, No Variety – There are few professors at my school. For example, my Spanish major only boasts one professor. So I see him a lot. The workload here is high because the programs require you to take 12-20 credits of religion. Education majors also must take piano, vocal skill, and the like.

Academics: Solid Across the Board – You can either be in the "teacher track" or pastor track. The pastor track program offers a B.A. in pre-seminary studies ie. Biblical languages - Greek, Hebrew, as well as a third language (spanish, german, latin). The teacher track offers B.S. degrees in ECE, elementary, and secondary education. You can have an emphasis to go with an elementary degree and secondary majors can major in Spanish, science, english etc.

Overall Experience: It's Good for the Most Part! MLC is truly a very unique college. There are few kids (around 800) and students are preparing solely for a career in the public ministry. Overall, the education is of high-quality and the relationship between students and professors is very strong. I decided to study Spanish in college and the Spanish program here is very good!

Scholarships: $ for Pastors and Teachers – MLC is an institution for future teachers and pastors. Many grants and scholarships are awarded to students who are pursuing a career in the public ministry, or teaching and preaching the gospel. For example, I received a "ministry scholarship", which is awarded to students who show strong candidacy for the ministry, but do not have the best grades, however. Overall, I guess you could say paying for college here at MLC is somewhat of a "team effort" but the smarter students are definitely favored, as you will find just about anywhere. That leaves little money for students who are "average".

Campus Strictness: The Right Hand of the Law – The Martin Luther College guide book is full of many strict rules and policies to keep students safe. Seeing as it is a private college, the problems that exist at other colleges are not as prevalent at MLC. They use the bible as the ultimate ruling hand, and it shows in the way students and faculty handle themselves.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Student Teaching Opportunities – One of the most unique parts of Martin Luther College is their "internship" program. Since it is a school specifically for teachers and pastors, each teacher track student is given at least one opportunity a year to work with their major and deal one on one with students. During the first year, we have a week of Early Field Experience, where teachers from other school give presentations and we write lesson plans and teach students from nearby grade schools. Sophomore year we observe in a classroom for one week. Junior and senior year are fantastic because we are given the chance to teach for several weeks at a time to different grade schools, both private and public, across the nation.
