       Consistently ranked a “Best Value” and top master’s-level school in the Midwest by U.S. News & World Report, Valparaiso University offers more than 70 areas of study in liberal arts and sciences and professional studies.

        Located one hour southeast of Chicago, Valpo’s Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, Engineering, Nursing and Health Professions, and Christ College –The Honors College are committed to the values of the University’s Lutheran foundation, the intersection between faith and life, and the broadening experiences of the liberal arts.

        A comprehensive institution, Valpo offers a close-knit campus community in which students benefit from the guidance of faculty mentors. Valpo’s nearly 4,600 students represent most states and more than 50 countries.

        Nestled in a Northwest Indiana community of 32,000 people, the University offers extensive leadership, undergraduate research, service, and internship opportunities, as well as study-abroad programs and more than 150 extracurricular activities, including a campus radio station and other media, a Pre-Medical Society, and various recreational and NCAA Division I intercollegiate sports. Sixty-eight percent of students live on campus. About 27 percent of Valpo students are members of the University’s national fraternities and sororities.

        State-of-the-art facilities include a Virtual Nursing Learning Center with computerized “patients” and a one-of-a-kind VisCube-X2 Scientific Visualization Laboratory that allows Valpo engineers and scientists to learn concepts using three-dimensional virtual reality. Other examples of advanced technology are found in the theater, non-linear video-editing laboratory, 16-inch computer-controlled reflecting telescope, the Christopher Center for Library and Information Resources, and Weather Center with Doppler radar.

        The Donald V. Fites Engineering Innovation Center and new Arts and Sciences building opened in 2011-2012, followed by the James S. Markiewicz Solar Energy Research Facility, which houses one of only five solar furnaces in the United States. The suite-style residence facility, Beacon Hall, is the latest addition to campus, which opened in the fall of 2014 and houses primarily sophomore students.
