For a university with under 3,000 undergraduates, Valparaiso has remarkable academic breadth. The school's strengths in the liberal arts and sciences earned it a chapter of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. However, Valpo also has a College of Nursing, College of Engineering, and College of Business Administration. All are popular among undergraduates.
In athletics, Valpo is one of the smaller universities to compete in Division I athletics. The Valparaiso Crusaders participate in the NCAA Division I Horizon League for most sports, while football competes in the Pioneer Football League.
Admissions are selective, but not out of reach for most hard working students. Financial aid is generous, and the university offers significant grant aid to the great majority of applicants.
