Dordt College in the "great utopia that is northwest Iowa" is a small, private liberal arts school affiliated with the Christian Reformed Church (a Dutch Protestant denomination). Dordt offers a "Christ-centered perspective" and "a distinctly Christian education." A respectable array of majors and pre-professional offerings includes "strong business, education, and engineering programs." Some courses here are demanding; others, not so much. "I've been challenged well in about half to two-thirds of my classes," speculates a theology major. Tough or not, classes are almost always intimate. "The professors have an opportunity to get to know the students," explains a biology major.
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.
