Located in an Indiana suburb of Chicago, Illinois, Valparaiso University is a private university that was founded in 1859. Students and others call the university “Valpo” for short. The university offers majors under five main colleges of study: Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Engineering, Nursing, and Christ College. U.S. News & World Report named Valparaiso University as #3 in the Universities-Master’s category for the Midwest in its annual rankings of “America’s Best Colleges.” With a student-to-faculty ratio of 12 to 1 and an average class size of 20, students are guaranteed personal attention from professors. Valpo is considered a teaching college, which means every class is lead by a professor and each professor lectures. There are very few teaching assistants at Valpo, which makes building relationships with professors is much easier. The university puts a major focus on diversity, with two thirds of the student body coming from almost every U.S. state and over 40 countries. Valpo has over 100 registered student organizations and international students are active in the university community.
