Why Heidelberg

Because, at Heidelberg, everyone matters. You’ll receive the benefits of small classes, personal attention, and faculty mentorship. You’ll also have opportunities to present at conferences, eat dinner with CEOs, conduct your own research, and make an impact on campus and the community. 

It all starts on day one. We put education majors into classrooms, biology majors into labs, and athletic training majors into clinicals. Our goal is to help each and every student develop their abilities, discover their potential, and define their purpose.

With integrated learning, distinctive opportunities, and personal relationships, all at an affordable cost . . . why not Heidelberg!

Academic excellence
Our academic programs span six divisions of music, education, business, natural sciences, humanities and social sciences, and health sciences. Our goal is to provide every student with skills, experiences, and knowledge that will not only help them after graduation but throughout their career.

Engagement outside the classroom
Ninety-two percent of our students are involved in extracurricular activities. At Heidelberg you are encouraged to continue activities you love and discover new ones. Join the intramural ping-pong league, travel to San Francisco with Model UN, sing with our show choir, and build houses with Habitat for Humanity. With over 70 clubs, organizations, Greek groups, and athletic or intramural teams to join, there is something for everyone. 

Professors at Heidelberg want you to be a part of the discussion. You won’t
just sit in a classroom and absorb information; you will be an active participant in the discussion and direction of your education. You’ll also spend time outside the classroom with your professors traveling, conducting research, and as club advisors. At Heidelberg, professors know your strengths, weaknesses, and career goals. That’s how they can advise and help you map out your future.

Moving forward
Due to our faithful and generous alumni, in the last five years Heidelberg has renovated or built eight buildings, including Adams Hall for the School of Business, Talmage Residence Hall, Hoernemann Stadium, and Saurwein Health and Wellness Center. Alumni have also been integral in creating professional development opportunities for students through funding the Lichtman-Behm Genocide Awareness Series and the Patricia Adams Lecture Series. 

Honors Program
Heidelberg’s Honors Program challenges students to reach their full potential. Benefits of the program include honors courses that replace general education classes, early registration, 24-hour access to the Bryenton Honors House, special study abroad opportunities, accelerated graduation, and an honors diploma. Explore your interests and abilities with supportive peers.

Crossing cultures
Heidelberg students travel the world. They conduct biological research in Belize, work with communities on the Texas-Mexico border, complete business internships in Australia, and study abroad in places like Germany, England, and Morocco. College is the time to see the world, and Heidelberg will help you get there.

Free M.B.A.
Our new PlusOneAdvantage Free M.B.A. program gives all students the unique opportunity to earn a Master of Business Administration tuition-free. Students who complete their bachelor’s degree (in any major) within four years with at least a 3.0 GPA can join our one year M.B.A. program tuition-free.
