Valparaiso University is an excellent choice for an undergraduate degree. It is a great school for a student who is looking for a classic, well-rounded 4 year university experience. I loved it because I was able to really follow all of my interests. I was able to have two very different majors, study abroad, and participate in extracurricular activities.

I went into college undecided, which seemed scary at first but the school provided many resources to help find a degree that interested me. All undecided students took an exploratory class in which we explored our values as people and what we might value in a career. Additionally, I worked with the Career Center on campus to identify potential careers I would have interest in using personalized extensive reports from career assessments. Furthermore, many professors were eager to assist me in exploring careers... Read More

Once I started to take social work classes, I had realized I stepped into a rigorous academic program for which I am very grateful for. I enjoyed every minute of my social work classes; my professors were thoughtful and challenged us in ways that would make us grow as individuals and as a cohort (class of students). As graduation approached, I began filling out graduate applications and learning the power of Valparaiso University's Social Work Program - it was fully accredited by the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE). This would allow me to be admitted to many graduate programs across the country and begin with "advanced standing status" and receive credit for that school's foundation courses. I ended up choosing the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis for concertation and the number of research centers the social work department has (about 15!)

Had I not chosen to have the experiences I did at Valparaiso University, I would not be where I am today - about to start a prestigious graduate program! I could talk all day about my student activity experiences and positions I held on campus, but that would require another 300 words, just know your ultimate campus experience is what you make of it.

Best of luck in finding your school, it will work out!
