Life at Valpo
Your life here
Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement involving college and high school students at more than 250 schools across the country, all raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in their community. The Valparaiso University Dance Marathon started in 2012. In 2020, we hosted our first ever Virtual Dance Marathon to benefit Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Students and alumni helped raise $56,731.08!
Feels just like home
That is, if home has eight res halls, seven fraternity and sorority houses, dining options and locations to fit every appetite and schedule. Valpo will keep you well fed, well rested, and surrounded by friends.

Valpo After Dark
