Wartburg College is a “small, private, liberal arts school” in the “rather small town” of Waverly, Iowa. It’s affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church and named after an old castle in Germany. Highlights include “a great reputation” in the hard sciences and a “pretty strong” music program. Studying abroad is easy and popular, especially during Wartburg’s unique one-month May Term. Classes are personalized here and “the academic experience—especially as access to essential equipment and professors go—is phenomenal.” Professors “know you by your first name and will notice if you skip class.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
