3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They are trying to have all kids live on campus next year.

4 College Freshman

Weather: There are skywalks to all classes for cold days.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The internet is not reliable at Wartburg. This is especially true for evenings when every student is using the internet. Buying an ethernet cord is a must. There is money loaded onto your id card, so you don't have to pay to print. The only time you would have to pay to print would be if you ran out of money, which doesn't typically happen. You can survive college without having a computer, but it is extremely convenient to have one. There are plenty of computers in the library and other labs around campus.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Wartburg College is basically a more grown-up version of high school. The football players act like they run everything, even though they are playing D-3 football. Is is acceptable to act like you run everything if you attend a major university and play football, but Wartburg is not a major university. Other than that, most people are pretty nice. It's your typical small college.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is a hassle since Wartburg is a residential campus. Most students live on campus and quite frankly, it is easier to live on campus. Unless you have fourth year status, you will more than likely have to live on campus; however, there are a few exceptions. It is a little cheaper to live off-campus, but it is most convenient to live on campus. Also, the parking lot for students who commute is inconveniently placed.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Marijuana is becoming more and more popular on every campus. It is not as present as alcohol, but there are still plenty of students who use it. Alcohol is present on every campus, including Wartburg. The weekends are the the main time for students to drink. All freshman dorms enforce the no alcohol policy. The dorms for the upper class do not have an alcohol policy. Most freshman who are caught underage drinking are not written up.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Wartburg College is a great school. There are many opportunities for students to do many things, like studying abroad. Wartburg College also allows students to personalize their own major. There are unlimited opportunities for students at Wartburg College.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Wartburg College is not as diverse as most universities. There are groups on campus like BSU (Black Student Union) and Allaince (support LGBTQ) who help the transition into college.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There is not Greek life at Wartburg College. Many students would like Greek life, however.

College Freshman

Majors: Though I haven't had an internship, I plan to intern. An internship is required for a music therapy major. As a music therapy major I am guaranteed an internship which is nice. I am most concerned about getting an internship out of the state, but there are internships all over.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The double major in music therapy and music education is a popular major at Wartburg College. However, there is extremely rigorous coursework. One has to be extremely dedicated with a hard work ethic to major in both music education and music therapy. In order to become a music therapist you must intern. You can intern anywhere across the U.S. which is really nice. All of the music faculty are extremely nice. They will go out of their way to make sure that you understand everything.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Parties at Wartburg are usually small and laid back. Many people go to Joe's Knighthawk or The Fainting Goat, however these places seem to only be fun when you are allowed to drink. As for underage nightlife, it is not hard to find something to do, however what you do find to do is, more often than not, underage drinking. the local bars are right off campus, so they are within walking distance.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are three different places to eat on campus, and you can transfer your meals out of the main cafeteria, however meal transfers are usually taken up early in the week, and very hard to get. The meals in the Mensa are not terrible, however they lack a really diverse menu.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Wartburg is a relatively diverse campus, meaning a lot of different types of people are represented, however the groups of friends that form are not very diverse. It seems as if the international students all stick together, African American students, stay together, and so on and so forth.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are not too many options for dining in Waverly. A few places in town cater to the dorms which is extremely convenient. Most places have reasonable prices as well. The only real negative option I can think of is that there is not a restaurant that specifically caters to vegetarians or vegans. Being a vegetarian myself, I find it hard to go out to eat when the only option I have is eating a salad.
