Mar 1, 2017
A******a from Milwaukee, WI

I went here my freshman year but transferred out due to switching majors. However, I realized after just one semester that I missed A LOT of things about Wisconsin Lutheran College such as the professors, the faculty (kitchen staff, security, janitors), and the overall feel of being welcomed and accepted. After one semester at a different college, I transferred back and am much happier. It truly lives up to great standards.
