Almost everyone has a laptop. But if you don't, you just take notes the old fashion way. There are computers in each of the residence halls, the library, and the classroom buildings if students need them.

Everything is right on campus so classes are always on unless the professor can't get to campus. It is windy all the time though. But it is Iowa, so what do you expect.

If you are accepted to the school, you are accepted to the program you want to study. The professors are very helpful if you are struggling, and the ASK center offers tutoring which is free to students.

Agriculture internships are great. They are paid. The school is very helpful in finding internships that work out for the students. It is very common for students to do two and even three in the four years of college.

There are not many students that choose to live off campus. There are apartments on campus for the upper classmen, so housing is well taken care of, unless you decide to get married while you are still in college.

A lot of students show up to the games. The community is always present.

Very friendly people, as well as a good mix of people. Everyone says hi or good morning. It is a very friendly atmosphere!

We have a performance center, a theatre, a Recreation center which, includes swimming and skating and students get in free! We also have an exercise center, and Dordt is always planning fun and exciting events to keep your schedule busy.

I'm not really apart of the drinking scene. I hear some stories but the partying is kept to a minimum and rarely to never does a Dordt student get in the paper for drinking or any poor choices.
College Senior 2013-08-07T16:43:25Z
There are a lot of restaurants and fast food places to choose from and if you don't like anything in Sioux Center, you can just drive 10 minutes over to the next town (Orange City) to get something.

The athletics are nothing that are envied by many, but it is a small college. Those that participate find the experience fruitful and seem to enjoy it, but I think it's mostly a money drain.

Although the campus is not overflowing with computers, there are labs in almost every building, including dorm buildings. There is rarely a situation without access to computers, except in the library in crunch times. The computers are updated regularly and seem to have quality maintenance.
College Senior 2013-07-28T18:05:54Z
Although Sioux Center is a small town, there are plenty of restaurants and bars, nice parks, and a movie theatre for out of class activities. An extremely important added benefit for me is the safety of the area. Things are rarely stolen and walking alone in the middle of the night presents almost no risk. It is a quiet town with simple amenities, perfect for a great school experience.

Guys & Girls:
There a all kinds of guys at Dordt. Many of them are farm kids, but there are those from the west coast too.

There are a few places to eat off campus in Sioux Center. If you are looking for a specific place or type of food, you may want to drive to Sioux City instead.

Health & Safety:
Dordt is an extremely safe place to live. There is very little crime. It is so safe that some students even leave their cars unlocked.
College Sophomore 2013-05-29T05:54:03Z
On campus housing is really encouraged since Sioux Center is so small there is not a lot of room for off campus students unless they are married.
College Sophomore 2013-05-29T05:53:13Z
They're ok. Not always the fastest computers every but they get the job done.
College Sophomore 2013-05-29T05:52:13Z
It is normal winter lots of snow, hot summer. It is very windy here but that it to be expected it is IA.

I love nursing. They have an amazing program. Though the advisors we are given are kind of slack. They are not always available 24/7 and don't always help people out on an urgent basis nor do they explain why they ask certain information of us but I'm sure they do lots of stuff beside teach a few BSN. Otherwise the program/education itself is great.

I do not like living in East Campus. That building has been there for over 50 years. I really wish they would tear them down and get a new facility. The did just recently build the Kuiper apartments but only seniors get to live in them. The boy's dorms don't have air conditioning but that doesn't really affect me because I live in the girl's dorm which are relatively nice. Dordt is quite costly as far as on-campus living costs go.
College Senior 2013-04-11T18:45:24Z
I just needed to fill out a general application that required an ACT score above 20. For my nursing major, I did need to do an interview but it wasn't too intense. There wasn't really anything difficult for applying.
College Senior 2013-04-11T18:43:35Z
I have not done an internship through Dordt yet. I don't plan on doing one because I already have a good job that gives me good experience for my future career.
College Senior 2013-04-11T18:40:41Z
Dordt College is a school I would definetly reccomend if you are looking to be challenged in your faith. You don't just meet those that are Reformed Christians but also people from other walks of faith and beliefs and it's really cool to get a "taste" of everything.
College Sophomore 2013-03-14T19:26:22Z
I went on alot of college visits and to be honest I wasn't super excited about Dordt before I got there, but once I got on campus and experienced the attention to detail, overwhelmingly caring hearts and environment I knew would challenge me I totally did a 180. Compared to so many other larger public schools or even other private schools I visited, Dordt stood out because they sincerely cared about my goals and how they could help me achieve them. I've attented the college for a year now and my feelings have only been reafirmed. The mental challenge to push me to the next level and the finding of my calling is more than I could have hoped for.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
