It’s a TLU thing
There is a sense of community at TLU centered around small classes that average just 18 students, and that are taught by highly qualified professors – not graduate students. Because of this small size, the professors challenge, mentor and recommend students for graduate schools and professional careers as individuals whom they know well.
Engaged student body
TLU professors promote hands-on experience through scientific research, internships, senior seminars, and study abroad programs. Students find it easy to become involved in various activities and organizations on campus.
Nearly one-third of the student body participates in one of the 14 NCAA Division III teams that TLU fields –women’s basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, and volleyball and men’s baseball, basketball, football, golf, soccer, and tennis. These student-athletes are students first, as evidenced by the frequency of TLU students named to Academic All-American teams.
This quality of education has been recognized repeatedly in U.S News & World Report's annual ranking of America's best colleges, and by The Princeton Review, which has named TLU to its “Best Western Colleges” list. TLU’s graduating business majors ranked near the top in a national exam, and the university also boasts outstanding science, kinesiology, music, and education programs.
Community of faith and learning
The school’s Center for Servant Leadership helps fulfill the university’s mission of preparing undergraduates academically, spiritually, and socially in a residential community of faith and learning for service and leadership. Affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, TLU welcomes all faiths.
