Texas Lutheran University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
It is a small liberal arts college with small class sizes. The professors actually care about you and your attendance, and are accessible for help, unlike larger universities. It is a very small school and seemed like a repeat of high school with the cliques. It was harder to fit in as a transfer and commuter student. The school was helpful in the admissions process. Since it is a small school, they do not have a good career placing program.
This is a small liberal arts college. The class sizes are small and the professors actually care about you and are willing to help. Since the school was so small it felt like high school to me with the cliques, especially since I was a transfer and commuter student. There is not much help with job placement after graduation.
Great school, amazing professors, awesome people! Small classes, yet very good networking opportunities and job options for many majors. They want to be successful by getting all their students jobs out of school.
TLU is a great community and a wonderful school. The Biology department is amazing and as helpful as possible. My only issue with TLU is the department that I almost graduated from. I made it all the way to Student Teaching (the last semester of college) to realize that I did not like teaching. This is partially my failure to listen to myself and partially due to failure of the Secondary Education program. The Education department focuses primarily on the EC-6 and 4-8 programs and does not focus much on the secondary people. I did not get appropriate exposure to what teaching would be like until student teaching and was not directed on how to achieve that exposure in my few observation assignments. Once again, I think this was partially my fault for failing to ask but also the professor's fault. I thoroughly enjoyed my biology courses and all the teachers in the biology department were wonderful, if albeit a little strange and demanding at times. I also acquired a minor in geography and Dr. Hoffmann who runs the minor program is amazing and really deserves a Geography department. So I suppose, I would recommend TLU as a whole but with the caveate that you do what I did not; listen to yourself and find what you truly enjoy. Also make sure you do internships/work that relates to your intended feild after college, the job market is looking for experienced people, not those with a degree.
