    there is usually lots of activities going on. vu after dark is a program where there are activities, games, and movies for anyone to go to on friday and saturday nights but it's mostly aimed towards freshman and sophomores. there tons of clubs, many based on common majors, like the viterbo student nursing association and others. if you want to create a club you do it! this year there are several new clubs on campus. i really enjoyed most of the teachers i had this past semester. my classes were smaller, as most are at viterbo, and if you participate in class and ask questions you'll enjoy the class more and the teacher will get to know you better as well.

    I love how compact the campus is. Viterbo is like a mini city/community inside a large city. It is not like UW-Madison, UW-Oshkosh, or UW- Stout that covers many blocks. Viterbo has very great values too. Since they were founded by the Franciscan Sisters, Viterbo University tries to integrate some of the Franciscan values into the way the teachers teach and how the students learn.
