Valparaiso University, also known as Valpo, is a private institution that was founded in 1859. Located on a 310-acre suburban campus in Valparaiso, Indiana, Valparaiso University is the country’s largest independent Lutheran institution and is owned by the Lutheran University Association. Valparaiso University was originally founded by Methodists as a co-educational institution but had to close in 1871 due to losses that occurred during the civil war. In 1873, the university re-opened as the Northern Indiana Normal School and became Valparaiso College in 1900. The university got its current name in 1906. The Lutheran University Association purchased Valparaiso in 1925 and it became a premier learning institution combining professional training and liberal arts university.
