Waldorf University is a friendly, private liberal arts school located in the heart of beautiful Forest City, Iowa. For more than 100 years, Waldorf has been the cornerstone in the lives of thousands, setting the solid foundation for success among its students, their families and the surrounding community.

Located centrally among seven of the Midwest’s most populated metropolitan regions, Waldorf students experience the best of both worlds—the small-town charm of Forest City, Iowa, and the big city appeal of Des Moines, Chicago, Minneapolis and more—all within driving distance.
