Living in Decorah, Iowa

Going to Luther is synonymous with living in beautiful Decorah. Your professors live here, and so do 1,000+ alumni. Decorah is a hidden gem that lies in the Driftless Region. It’s a beautiful environment of rolling hills, sandstone bluffs, waterfalls, and spring-fed creeks. And the community of Decorah is just as unique and inviting as the landscape. See why we are proud to call Decorah our home.

Support Services

Luther is committed to supporting all facets of your student life. We walk with you through academic challenges and assist you in your internship and job search. Luther also provides counseling services and other supportive programs.

Student orgs and clubs on campus are a great way to connect with people and get involved with things you’re passionate about. I’ve been involved in the women’s tennis team, which has given me lifelong friendships with all of my teammates. I’ve also been on Student Senate for two years, which has taught me to step out of my comfort zone and not be afraid to push myself beyond my boundaries.
