Valparaiso University is a university located in Valparaiso, Indiana.
The university is affectionately called "Valpo" by its fans, students, and alumni, in part because people and organizations have
trouble pronouncing "Valparaiso."Valparaiso was founded in 1859 as Valparaiso Male and Female College, one of the first
co-educational four-year institutions in the United States. Although
forced to close in 1871, the school reopened two years later as the Northern Indiana Normal
School and Business Institute. The school was renamed Valparaiso College in 1900 and gained
its current university status in 1906. Valparaiso has been a Lutheran institution since 1925.
