Valparaiso University, founded in 1859, was one of the first coeducational higher learning institutions in the U.S., and has been helping students pursue their education both in the classroom and through external service for more than 150 years. The independent college is affiliated with the Lutheran Church, but welcomes students of all faiths to learn and pursue their degrees at any of the university's five schools of learning. Enrollees can expect to have a personalized learning experience as the college has a student to teacher ratio of 13 to one.
The school boasts more than 70 different degree programs across its five separate colleges - Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Engineering, Nursing, and Christ College. Its suburban location is also ideal for students who prefer a quiet student living environment. The college places emphasis on community service, and many students volunteer around the Valparaiso community in between classes. When they have a spare moment, many individuals attend college games. The Valpo Crusaders compete in the NCAA Division I, so sports enthusiasts are in for some excitement.
