“Stay away! If you can save your children or friends from attending Waldorf University please do so. I attended back in 2017 and basically ended up fleeing my environment. Sexual assault is swept under the rug because it ruins their image. They let offenders graduate even when aware of what they have done. I was treated poorly and only treated nicely when I ‘played along.’ I have major PTSD from having attended Waldorf and the incidents that occurred and that were never taken care of except by one professor. Do not enter their Theatre Department. Period. The scholarships are not worth it and they play favorites. Everyone I have known from Waldorf has been glad they left and/or finally glad they graduated but, they do not feel prepared. I feel sad that this school still has such a high sexual assault count that they do nothing about and refuse to address that it even happens. It really isn’t worth it and I know this review is harsh but it is true.” —– Emma Banner.
