The Value of a College Visit

There are many ways to measure what a campus visit is worth – personal connections, a sense of place, a vision of the path ahead. That’s the core.

We’ve added one more: The Luther College Campus Visit Award, a renewable $1,000 scholarship for prospective students who attend an eligible visit prior to enrolling. When you invest your time, attention, and resources in a campus visit, we begin our investment in you.
