    Christians. People who like to have lots of fun outdoors (i.e. rock climbing, snow sports, hiking, biking, etc.)

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't let rules, regulations, and the Liberty Code daunt you. It is a wonderful school with so much to offer. Don't blow it off so easy.

    Bang for the buck

    Being a Private AND Christian school, I expected it to be pricy. Liberty is relatively low priced to begin with, and they offer many merit scholarships that bring the price down to a very nice and managable level. There is so much to do on campus, like free skating, that is really worth the money.

    Will enjoy being here

    They have very wonderful student support systems that never leave an individual to be bored or alone. Its like one big family that takes care of each other. If there is ever a need, students, staff, or others are right there on the ball to help!

    Will learn a lot

    This campus is very large, 5,000 acres, and has many colleges and majors to offer. Not only will I excel in academia, but I will learn good time management, and real life knowledge.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who: - desire to be spiritually challenged - ready to be well-rounded in their majors - thrive off of encouragment and constant positivity - want to become leaders - those who love to have fun (there is so much to do on campus and even off campus!)

    Tips for prospective students

    My advice for prospective students would be to come to the campus with an open heart and an open mind, ready to be molded. Don't let your past, your weaknesses, or anything limit you from the potential you have to change the world. Liberty is definitely a place that can give you a strong foundation to learn and develop if you're willing to let the Lord take hold of your talents and use them to change the world for his glory. Secondly, Liberty University follows a strong mission statement to the T and proudly holds the title of the largest Christian University in the country. With that title, they have very high standards and rules for every student to uphold on campus which includes dress codes, required attendances to Convocation (chapel), room checks every other day, curfew, no co-ed dorms etc. Some of these rules and requirements can, I'll admit, get a little tedious and irritating but it's something that can eventually be adapted to. Liberty is not the place to necessarily live the college life (i.e.. drinking, drugs, parties etc.), but it is a campus where fun is around every corner and can contribute to a positive educational, social and spiritual growth.

    Bang for the buck

    After adding everything up on the college necessity list, it's normal to stress and need to step away to catch your breath, but with Liberty you can feel extremely secure in knowing that every penny is going to a strong establishment that is 110% focused on your future. Yes, its a private, Christian University, but its worth every penny. You have some of the best educators in the country at this school and amazing programs that will challenge you in every aspect of your major, but it doesn't stop there! Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we have something called Convocation, which is pretty much like a HUGE chapel for the entire campus to come together and hear encouraging words from famous authors, musicians, artists, pastors, athletes and missionaries. So, on top of the great professors, we are taught even more by the visitors also interested in our callings. There's a gym, ice skating rink, basketball courts, an indoor track, indoor soccer and basketball arena, plus computer labs, curriculum libraries...EVERYTHING you could ask for. An additional plus about Liberty is the willingness to help in any way possible financially. Depending on one's major, their family's income, and even educational achievments like honor roll or high GPA, Liberty offers many scholarships in order to decrease financial burden.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is always buzzing with activities to do! Every home sporting event has the stands filled with Flames fans cheering on the Red and Blue. Concerts are held almost every week, showcasing many talents found on campus. Live music always plays in the cafeteria, with games, prizes and loads of fun. The best part of about campus is the constant fellowship with everyone. You'll quickly discover the fast growing relationships that are developed on campus; between student and teacher, students and counselors, athletes and coaches, you'll even find yourself high-fiving your administrators like their your best friends! The bonds made at Liberty are certainly one of a kind.

    Am learning a lot

    Liberty University offers top of the line education. From the faculty and the students, to the facilities and the resources, Liberty's primary focus is to prepare students to assume leadership roles in society (www.libertyu.com).

    If you want to attend a school where you can become knowledgeable about your future career and your relationship with God, then Liberty is the place for you. I attended Liberty because I wanted to be in an environment where I can focus on my relationship with God while I work on my studies.

    Tips for prospective students

    When you come to Liberty, Your first week will seem easy because you'll be the only ones there. Freshmen and transferring students are required to be there a week before semester starts. When classes begin be prepared because it will be a lot of people.

    Am enjoying being here

    The atmosphere is amazing here. I love the diversity and the teachers and students here are so friendly and easy to talk to.

    -Someone who desires to get closer with God. -Someone who wants an excellent, yet affordable education. -Someone who doesn't mind trying to be creative to have fun. -Someone who can deal with having rules to follow.

    Tips for prospective students

    -Apply early. Liberty gives out scholarships based on how early you apply. -Make sure you know the Liberty Way. If you don't think that you can deal with it, don't apply. -For campus housing, there's several different types. If you like being around people, try to live in the Circle or the Hill. If you can't deal with being around people all the time, try to get on Campus East.

    Bang for the buck

    When I first heard about Liberty, I thought I'd never have the money to go there because it's an out-of-state, private, Christian university. However, it's not bad at all! I have friends who are at state schools that are paying more than I am. Liberty gives out many scholarships for little things like applying early, for how many years you've gone there in a row, having a pastor... Most of the scholarships are around $500 to $1000, but every little bit helps!

    Am enjoying being here

    I love the atmosphere. Most of the people are extremely friendly and nice. I felt welcomed and accepted as soon as I went to LU. Also, there are many events on campus, such as ice-skating, football games, basketball games, intramural sports, snowboarding, skiing, paintball, concerts... you get the idea! And most of the events are free which is awesome for a poor college student. But on the other hand, if you're looking for a typical college experience, you will not find it at Liberty. Liberty is private Christian university, so drinking is banned. The rules here are pretty strict, such as 3 second hugs, no kissing, no R-rated movies, no dancing... the list goes on. Honestly, they sound pretty rough, but most of the time, you really don't mind them. Instead, you have to be creative to have fun, and it can get pretty crazy!

    Am learning a lot

    I feel like I'm learning a lot at LU. Every teacher I've had here is an excellent teacher and genuinely cared about their students. Most of the classes are good yet challenging. You can expect to put in many study hours. However, there are several freshman classes that are complete filler.

    If you want to grow closer to God, this is the place to be. Big-time university feel with a foundation of Biblical truth. If you are wanting to go into missions, youth ministry, nursing, sports, theatre, communications, or you are unsure, this place is an awesome experience where God is going to reveal His plan for your life through the time you spend here.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not take all of your lower level classes in your first two years. A common misconception is that you should ease into college by taking your easier classes upfront. I disagree unless you are undecided on your major. By delaying all of your upper level classes until your Junior and Senior year, you are killing yourself with a difficult course load in your later years. The best thing is to leave a few easy classes that you can do in your Junior and Senior years that will be a rest from your other major classes.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is obviously not the cheapest university, but it is absolutely worth it. Liberty has thousands of dollars in scholarships that are regularly awarded to each student. This knocks the cost of school down to a competitive price. The calibre that this school has is so high for the price you pay.

    Am enjoying being here

    At Liberty, we consider ourselves the World's Most Exciting University. We have our own SnowFlex Ski/Snowboard Center, NCAA Div. I Athletics, Intramural Athletics, Ministry Teams, Concerts (Recently Switchfoot, The Fray, and Tenth Avenue North), an amazing theatre department, and a great student body. The atmosphere on campus is one that you must experience for yourself.

    Am learning a lot

    This college offers many different kinds of learning. Since it is a Christian university, there is a strong emphasis on the spiritual education that you will receive. Everyone is required to take a class in Old Testament Bible, New Testament Bible, and two Theology classes. These are not very difficult, but they are quite comprehensive. Our School of Religion is considered by many as one of the best undergraduate schools on the subject in the nation. We have an amazing nursing program and a strong Law School with a percentage of graduates passing the bar. Our school of engineering is growing and while currently unaccredited, it is seeking accreditation soon. The most important thing that you will learn at Liberty is how to live your life for Christ.

    The ideal student to go here would be someone who truly wants to grow in Christ and get a great education while doing it. I recommend that you prepare yourself for the people you will meet. Most of the students are genuine, but some are also fake. Remember to guard your mind, body, and spirit and let God guide you through it all.

    Tips for prospective students

    I have a few things I would like to throw out there. Here at Liberty, you get what you pay for. So, rest assured, every penny of your tuition here is worth it. Secondly, Be sure to guard your mind, body, and spirit when on campus. This place is a safe one, and you have to understand that you can get comfortable with your spirituality and that could be a problem. The final thing, enjoy every minute here! God has blessed this campus and so you should enjoy those blessings!

    Bang for the buck

    I always joke with my friends that Liberty is a lot like Disney World. It could pretty much be its own country if it wanted to! The men and women who run this show are doing their best to give back to the students as much as possible. We just recently built a Snowflex, which is a ski slope without snow! I've been there a couple of times and the facilities are great! That is just one example of what the faculty is doing to return the favor of tuition. When it comes to education, I believe the professors are top notch and really know what they are teaching us. All of my teachers are fantastic and very knowledgeable. It made the transition process that much easier. The chancellor told us that the faculty at Liberty prides itself on hiring the best educators and the strongest Christians. Strong faith is a sign of a strong foundation for a college.

    Am enjoying being here

    I'm going to just come out with the truth: Liberty is not the most welcoming of all colleges. But what college is? Yes, the faculty made it as painless a transition as possible, but some of the students here were not so kind. Do not get me wrong, I have a ton of friends and I love every single one of them, but there are some very harsh people here. Of course, you will always find difficult people everywhere you go, I guess I was just one of those who had a bad experience with some of them. What I enjoy the most is the Christian atmosphere. I have met such intelligent Christians who truly love God and know His Word. There are plenty of students, as well as teachers, who can spiritually sharpen you and guide you through your walk with God.

    Am learning a lot

    I come from a small town and public high school. So Liberty was somewhat of a culture shock when it comes to academics. I have been challenged by the curriculum and forced to question issues that I never would have given a second thought before. High school was very easy for me, so I just assumed college would be the same way. That was terrible reasoning! I have learned more in one semester here than I ever would have in my four years at Chardon High. It isn't necessarily difficult curriculum, you just have to work for what you pay for, and I like that a lot.

    As far as private schools go, Liberty actually is among the cheapest. To be perfectly honest, though, it is still pretty expensive. For the most part, incoming students get a good deal of money in scholarships, which kind of balance the cost out.

    Am enjoying being here

    Again, there are some students who will complain about the Liberty Way, or LU's code of conduct. However, just because Liberty has its standards doesn't mean it's not a great place. Professors here actually care not only about your academic success, but they also care about you as a person. The student leadership teams in each dorm genuinely care about each person on the hall. There are tons of fun activities, like brother-sister dorm get-togethers, sports, concerts, etc.

    Am learning a lot

    Some critics of LU think that because it is a private school students aren't learning anything valuable in the real world. Aside from the basic GNED (General Education) courses, all of my classes have been academically challenging. Most of my professors expected a lot out of me, but I learned a lot.

    liberty is an amazing university for students who what to excel academically as well as grow spiritually. for students who what to attend the world's most exciting university, liberty university is for them!

    Tips for prospective students

    -don't be afraid to ask questions! the students and faculty at liberty are very knowledgeable and are willing to answer your questions. -don't be intimidated by the size of the campus... it will shrink day by day. -make sure you balance your studying and playing time well. if you study more than you play, things will get very stressful. it can go the opposite way as well, playing more than you work will be stressful because you will get behind in your work. the phrase all work and no play makes jack a dull boy was quoted to me a number of times when i got too focused on my studying. -make sure you keep in touch with your friends and family back home because when you need a moment of freedom from stress, they are only a phone call away.

    Bang for the buck

    when i first saw the price i would be paying for going to liberty, i got incredibly scared, but after i saw what i was paying for, it was totally worth it! after my first year, i began thinking about going to a community college because i would be studying the same exact thing for less money. after thinking about it and getting some advice, i decided that going to liberty would be better for me because not only would i be getting an outstanding academic education, but i would also be giving the spiritual part of my life a chance to grow. liberty offers great financial aid and a variety of different scholarships. if price is an issue, don't worry because you will be getting your money's worth!

    Am enjoying being here

    I can truly say there is NEVER a dull moment at Liberty! There are always tons of things to do! It is always a struggle to decide what to do when it comes to my free time. Student Activities always makes sure there are activities that interest a huge range of students. Not to mention all the different sporting events that are open to students. The stands are always jammed full of students cheering on their peers. Being from the west coast, it was really hard to adjust at first from being so far away from home, but Liberty has such an extensive support network that it was extremely easy to adjust! If you need someone to talk to, there is ALWAYS someone there willing to listen to what you have to say. When it's time to hit the books, Liberty's academic facilities are amazing! There are Quiet Zones that are great for students who need absolute silence for studying. Liberty is an incredible university that offers an extensive variety of opportunity for it's students!

    Academic Rigor

    the professors at liberty are amazing! not only will you learn above and beyond on the subject they are teaching, you will also learn and grow spiritually from them. they challenge students in their school work as well as their walk with god. personally, i am always challenged when i walk away from a class. the professors do an excellent job of combining christian values and principles with the material they are teaching. they are exceptionally good at what they do and they genuinely care for their students!

    Everyone!

    Tips for prospective students

    The classes seem really easy but really put in the effort to study and you're gpa will be great. Realize that your roommates won't be your best friends from the start. It may take some time to get to know one another. I live in an apartment style dorm with 7 girls and 4 of us got along great from the start and it took awhile for the other 3 to get along but now everyone is good with each other.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition price seems really high but once you realize what exactly is included in the tuition it won't seem as expensive. I don't have to pay for anything on campus which is great. Everything was paid for in my tuition.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love being on campus. I can really feel the presence of God on Liberty Mountain. Most of the people are so happy and filled with the love of God that the overall atmosphere is amazing. I've made so many friends because they really push a family like community on the residence halls.

    Am learning a lot

    It's amazing how much I learned. When I went to work during break, I got into a few conversations and started spitting out information that I learned at school that seemed so complicated when I was learning it. I learned a lot of life lessons in the classroom as well because they try to use real life examples.

    Anyone who is willing to do the work. People who can deal with rules and everyone who wants to grow closer to God.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't go to Liberty with a bad attitude about it and you'll love it. Great fellowship and great people are constantly surrounding you. The rules can be annoying and most people get really worked up about the curfew but Lynchburg really does shut down at 9 pm...so it's not that bad I promise.

    Bang for the buck

    It seems outrageous I know but I think it is worth it. Great proffs, Great classes, great activities, amazing facilities, and the dinning hall isn't nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be. It could be a heck of a lot worse.

    Liberty University is great for ALL types of students. For those who want to be involved in study groups, we have those. For those who want legitimate NCAA sports teams, we have them. From academics to athletics, Liberty is the perfect fit for anyone willing to apply. I promise you will fit in among the 12,000 students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Liberty offers so many activities for students to get involved in, be careful to not get drawn away from you studies. Utilize the extremely large Lahaye Student Center, complete with 5 full court basketball courts, fully loaded weight room, cardio room, and aerobic area. Come ready to fall in love with this school!

    Bang for the buck

    To many, the tuition for Liberty University may seem a bit costly but it is worth every penny. The food is great, the people are friendly, and the classes are challenging. The school constantly provides free student activities all over campus and even provides low priced year-round skiing and snowboarding on the new Snowflex Centre. The research center is 3 stories, complete with a quite study floor and computer lab, along with a terrific library. Liberty is definitely worth the price.

    Am enjoying being here

    Liberty University has been the greatest choice I have ever made. I have absolutely loved everyday that I have been here. The students are so friendly and willing to assist you in anyway. The young men in my dorm have become my bestfriends as well as positive influences on me.

    Am learning a lot

    At Liberty University, I find myself being strongly encouraged to excel in my academics. Every professor makes it their ultimate goal to help out each and every student outside of the classroom. Every professor I had allowed me to meet with them anytime during the week to help me go over my work.

    -Students who want to excel -Students who want to be challenged spiritually

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking at Liberty as your post-high school education, I STRONGLY suggest that you go online and find out when the nearest CFAW (College for a Weekend) is. When I was looking at Liberty, I went down for CFAW and fell in love with it! You'll get to meet people that you'll remember if you decide to attend. I remember I stayed in the Campus East Apartments and one of the students there...his name was Josh. He and I connected over that weekend and sure enough, my first week at LU as a full-fledged student...we saw each other and had lunch! At Liberty, you'll make friends that you'll have for the rest of your life!

    Bang for the buck

    When I was applying for colleges I was looking at the big name schools like Penn State, Ohio State, East Stroudsburg University, etc. Those universities ran in the more expensive category as far as expenses go. When I got an ad from LU I went online to look at it and saw that it was a private Christian school. My thought immediately went to oh great...it's going to cost a boat-load of money. WRONG! Yes, it does put a dent in your bank account...but by all accounts it is extremely cheap for a private Christian university. Not to mention that even your first year, you'll probably get a bunch of scholarships just from LU.

    Am enjoying being here

    There are TONS of activities to do on and around campus. I am only in my second year and there are still places and things that I haven't tried out yet! Trust me, LU will keep you extremely busy and you will have a lot of fun!

    Am learning a lot

    The professors actually care about their students. Granted, they won't hold you by the hand and coddle you through your four or five years...but if you ask for help more often than not they will be right there to help you.

    Liberty is a great choice for any student who wants a school with moral standards. Liberty University is a Christian University and they do teach christian beliefs. However, you also learn a variety of other worldviews in class your freshman year. Liberty is also great for that student who is not sure what they want to study because Liberty offers such a wide variety of different classes and majors.

    Tips for prospective students

    The good news about Liberty is that you do not need to have a decided major to apply. Liberty is great for helping you find what field you're skilled in. If you are considering Liberty, I would suggest living on campus for at least your first year because your freshman year is when you make amazing friends in your dorms and classes.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty has a lot to offer. They have a law school, an excellent nursing program, and of course, seminary among many other majors. Liberty also has designated areas where the students can just hang out and relax, like the Tilley Center on North Campus. Tilley has an indoor pool, gym, and a ping pong and pool room; it also has a cafe and lounge area with flat screen tvs. Liberty just added the Snowflex this year where students can go tubing, skiing, or snowboarding. Liberty also has a wide variety of sports including football, basketball, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, indoor/outdoor track, cheerleading, wrestling, and a crew team. Liberty has so much to offer academically as well as socially.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love being at Liberty. There is such a friendly atmosphere here and plenty of things to do. The location is great too; Liberty is surrounded by restaurants, fast food chains, Target, Walmart, a Mall, Barnes and Noble (it also has one on campus), and many other shopping and food places. The location makes it very convenient for on-campus students who do not have cars because everything is in walking distance. I have made great friendships at Liberty that will last a lifetime.

    Am learning a lot

    When I first came to Liberty I had decided on a certain major but later found out that I no longer wanted to pursue that field. Liberty helped me find out what I would be good at by taking a career direct test. They made my transition to another major very pleasant and easy. I love the field I am studying now and cannot wait to learn more about it. The professors at Liberty are very helpful and are always willing to help. I have learned so much about different worldviews and my major that I feel prepared for whatever step is next.

    Christians. It is so refreshing to know that you are surrounded by other believers that share the same love for God that you do. That kind of atmosphere has helped me in countless ways with my walk with Christ and just life in general.

    Tips for prospective students

    Time management is key. Do not procrastinate because you will not be able to get all your work done in the given time period if you do. There is a lot more work given at once than in high school so manage your time in order to get your work done on time. Also another important key would be to create good study habbits because in order to do well, you need to study.

    As you know, figuring out a way to pay for college can be a hassle. Liberty, however, offers many scholarship opportunities in order to make paying for college a little easier. As I mentioned before, Liberty offers so many services for students to insure that every student can have a good college experience and most importantly succeed while in school and in life after graduation.

    I am excelling in my academics here more than I did in High School. My professors are great and there are so many great opportunities to get help with academics as needed. They offer tutoring services to make sure that each and every student has a great chance to succeed academically. Not to mention that Liberty has become an accredited university.

    The atmosphere is great. The information is presented in such a way that makes me want to learn. The professors are all great and they really care about you and your success in their class.

    The campus is very nice and there are many student activities but some of the rules are difficult for people coming from a larger city environment.

    The athletic training program is definitely first class. The rest of the acedmics are challenging but not overly difficult. Most classes cover a large amount of material and present it well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Check out Liberty, call the school, you will be pleasantly surprised what they can offer.

    Bang for the buck

    I couldn't have gone back to school if I didn't get financial aid. Since Liberty is relatively inexpensive I am able to attend school and it has been fully funded by financial aid. In comparison, Liberty is WELL below any other on line programs I have looked into.

    Am enjoying being here

    Even though I am not on campus, the on line program is designed to make you feel like you are at the campus.

    After a 25 year break between high school and college, I am attending Liberty Online. I am learning some many things and I am enjoying going to school.

    Regardless of where you are in your faith, Liberty is looking for those who are willing to be trained to become what we call Champions for Christ!

    Tips for prospective students

    For students who are not Christian, you will still be accepted just as you are because you deserve to be in an environment in which you will feel safe and welcome. You will however hear much talk and truth about the Christian faith and based off of what you will learn, I would strongly consider accepting this free gift of salvation that this loving God has to offer to the world. For Christian students, I would advise that you continue pray and seek God's plan for your life.

    Bang for the buck

    Everyone doesn't always have the same case as others. I am going on financial aid. Although financial aid does not cover my full cost, the university offers scholarships as well as a Scholarship 101 session to help us find outside scholarships to help pay for our education. The school bases everything on Christianity because Liberty was founded on Christian principles and stays true to them, so it is usually a matter of trusting the Lord in every situation.

    Am enjoying being here

    Liberty University has a vibe like no other institution. As a Christian, I really enjoy being a part of the Christian atmosphere on campus. I can go almost anywhere and join any organization and find people who are very genuine. I have made many friends who are fun to be around that love the Lord and are on fire for Christ. Some people may not understand this but there is a different kind of freedom we have as Christians. We can do certain fun things while making the right choices and still be a Christian. The Division 1 athletics, concerts, activities, and many more fun things to do just enhance my great time here.

    Am learning a lot

    Liberty University is teaching me much important and amazing material that will forever impact my life in a great way. The professors pray for the students at the beginning of every class to reassure us that the knowledge and wisdom that we are gaining comes from the Lord. I feel very confident that the knowledge I am gaining in my classes is very helpful and will stick with me as I go into my career.

    Overall, Liberty is great for a student who wishes to excel in a God-focused environment.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to go to Liberty's College For a Weekend - otherwise known as CFAW. This had a great influence of my college plans and choices.

    Bang for the buck

    Being a private university, Liberty is extremely expensive. Although I wish their tuition would equate to the price of a community college's cost, I am realistic. But, if it's God's will for you to be there, you can find a way by applying for many, many scholarships (cappex.com) and other various sites.

    Will enjoy being here

    Liberty University focuses on being the largest Christian University in the world, and it definitely shows. Of course, not everyone there is perfect, but for a college-type environment, the students, faculty, campus, activities, etc. is refreshing and exciting.

    Will learn a lot

    Liberty University is just amazing. This is coming from an actual student who is accepted and is definitely coming in the fall of 2011 if the finances are right. The biggest thing I saw about the academics is the love and passion the teachers have for glorifying God and striving to teach to the best of their abilities.

    If you are looking for a great college experience and to also be somewhere where your faith in God can last and even grow, Liberty is for you. Every day you are being prayed for and you have so many people available to talk with you an pray with you (Spiritual Life Directors, Prayer Leaders, RA's, RD's, campus pastors, and more!).

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty isn't the cheapest school out there but it was worth my time there. I grew both as a person and spiritually.

    Did enjoy being here

    I loved Liberty! The campus is beautiful and the education was worth it. The activities offered there are also fun. Students definitely rally behind athletic events and even spiritual events. I was introduce to many new people and convocation speakers were diverse.

    Did learn a lot

    I definitely learned a lot here. The teachers were great. The ones I had were always easy to get in touch with and quickly responded to emails. They were willing to help you and work with you.

    If you want to go to a University where all the staff has a personal relationship with Christ and you will learn how to share Christ affectively in whatever job you pursue after college, choose Liberty University!

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is very affordable with all the scholarships they offer. You have to apply and do your FASFA to see what all you are actually eligible for. From hearing speakers three times a week from all over the world and worshipping with the largest gathering of young people on the east coast at Convocation, to going to a University where every student is prayed for daily and where the staff truly does care about the students, Liberty is worth every penny.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love the Christian atmosphere. Unlike most Christian universities, the staff teach students what being a Christian really is. It is not just a religion, and just believing in Jesus Christ doesn't save anyone. Someone has to turn from their sins, believe in Jesus Christ and give their life to Christ as their Lord. There is a difference in their life through obedience and through repentance.

    Am learning a lot

    I have learned so much here at Liberty. Not only biblically but in other courses as well. If anyone is coming here, I recommend to take Dr. Hindson for Old Testament Survey and Mrs. Donovan for Developmental Psychology.

    I am learning a lot in the academic setting, the spiritual setting, and about life in general. My professors have invested in me and really want their students to succeed in the academic setting. Students are spiritually invested in everyday through professors, speakers in convocation, and other students.

    Liberty is good for students who love doing different activities and for those who love to be outdoors (like hiking or swimming) It is also good for those who are seeking a good Christ centered environment with some of the most encouraging people that I have ever met.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't judge this school by it's cover. There are a lot of rules and regulations, but trust me once you get here it really isn't that bad. This is one of the best choices I have ever made! Liberty is such a life changing experience. Come visit with an open mind and heart, and give it a chance.

    Am enjoying being here

    This is the WORLD'S MOST EXCITING UNIVERSITY!!! There is never a dull moment here at Liberty. There is always stuff going on, whether it is a football game or basketball game. Liberty is such a fun place to be. Here are a few of the things that happen on campus: Concerts (we've had the Fray, Needtobreathe, Article One, Meridith Andrews, Tenth Avenue North, Addison Road, and many others), late night ice skate (usually till about 2am), homecoming weekend (parade, tailgating, and of course the game), brother/sister dorm activities, club sports (such as paintball, ultimate frisbee, archery, etc.), free movie nights, there are many other activities, but I think my favorite would be Christmas coffeehouse (which is like a talent show, but only better!!) Another that I really enjoy about Liberty is that it is a Christ centered environment. There are SO many encouraging people on campus that will pray for you and are willing to listen. I have had some excellent people come into my life that have helped me through difficult situations. This is such a great place to be! Don't let anyone tell you different!

    Am learning a lot

    Liberty is the place to be!! The professors know what they are doing, and have strong christian values. I learn a lot from most of them. All of the professors that I have had definitely know their stuff, and most of them are very helpful and are willing to help you out in anyway that they can. They will listen to their students and not turn any student away.

    Students looking to grow spiritually and enjoy good academic classes. People looking for a friendly environment with lots of activities to do. Students that are active and committed!

    Tips for prospective students

    Liberty really is an awesome school, don't let the price deter you from coming. Don't be afraid to ask questions or to talk to anyone, students and faculty at Liberty are know a lot and are willing to answer your questions. Don't be intimidated by the size of the campus, within a week you will be able to find your way around campus with no problem. Make sure you balance your studying and free time well. Curfew is NOT an option. Don't be intimidated by all the 'rules' Liberty has. They aren't that unreasonable and really help make the safe atmosphere. I can't imagine Liberty without some of it's rules, luckily, I don't have to see couples making out at every corner.

    Bang for the buck

    Although Liberty University is a very nice school, it can be very expensive or cheap depending on who you are. I am from VA originally and do not receive a discount for being in-state. Paying $26,000 a year can get really expensive. Not only that, but they are raising housing prices for next year (Fall 11). Liberty does offer a variety of scholarships, though, which has paid almost half my tuition for last year. Liberty is a private-Christian university, so I guess $26,000 a year isn't too bad. The price is well-worth it in the long-run because Liberty offers a lot of services for it's students.

    Am enjoying being here

    There is almost always something to do at Liberty University. From snowflex, a gym, 2 swimming pools (1 indoor and 1 outdoor), a dollar theater within walking distance, lahaye student union, C-LAB (computer lab) with friends, and so much more. They also have monthly movie nights which show movies that recently got out of theaters. The theater program here always has amazing performances, this past year they did Hairspray and Phantom of the Opera which were both amazing. Also there is a mall about 5 minutes away. During the winter, there aren't as many things to do, but there is always a game to go to. The people here are very friendly and nice so there is always someone to talk to. Liberty also offers flames cash which is a new dining addition in which you can use your ID card like a credit card to certain places off campus to pay for food.

    Am learning a lot

    The professors here really care about their students and are willing to help. There are a variety of different classes and over 100 majors. Class sizes can vary. General ed classes can have over 500 students, but once you get into your major, class sizes get smaller. I am currently in a class over 20 students. But I don't mind having a large class anyway.

    I would recommend this college to any one looking to grow in their relationship with the Lord plus anyone who feels content in their view of God and in a relationship with Him. The opportunity for growth here is endless. With the opportunity to here amazing speakers, to listening to great bands, being prayed for daily etc.

    Tips for prospective students

    There are rules here, yes. However, if you humbly accept these rules there is so much opportunity to be experienced here.

    Bang for the buck

    This school is definitely more that an in-school college but much less expensive when compared to other private universities.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love attending this school. Regardless of the fact that I am many miles from home, the love and kindness I have experienced here has helped me not to be homesick. There are so many activities to do here as well. (I got to take a free day trip to Washington D.C.!)

    Am learning a lot

    I have learned so much from attending this university. I have grown so much spiritually. Attending Liberty is an amazing experience in itself because you get the opportunity to hear from amazing speakers from all over the world. I have also improved in my knowledge when it comes to academics. Specifically, I have had amazing math professors. I thought I hated math, but it seems that i just had poor high school math teachers.

    Great for all types of students. Yes it is a Christian University, but everyone is welcome. It's a fully accredited university, so I promise your education will not be lacking, and you just might enjoy hearing and experiencing a different point of view.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Don't be shy. Get involved. Meet new people. Experience new things. 2. Don't be afraid of getting on the buses and getting lost. Everyone does, even the people who have been going here for a year or two already. 3. Don't forget to sign out at night. 4. If you do forget to sign out at night, call your roommate. 9 times out of 10 they'll do it for you (even though they're not supposed to ;] ) 5. Don't expect the buses to be there on time. More often than not they're late. My rule of thumb is, if I have to go more than 25 minutes walk away, I'll take the bus. And when I choose a bus time, I choose it so that its a good 20 minutes before I have to be to my class. It usually gives me time in case the bus is late. 6. Basically, you're here to learn. We all know this. But don't be afraid to get out there and have fun too. And just be yourself. Nobody here will judge you.

    Bang for the buck

    For a private university, Liberty is definitely extremely affordable. It does get a little expensive now and then, but the financial aid office is so friendly and helpful. When they say they will do everything in their power to find you more money they mean it. You just have to keep on asking. I know from personal experience that if you keep asking for money they will find some for you. And they have such a broad range of scholarships, there's something for everyone.

    Am enjoying being here

    I LOVE being at Liberty! There is so much to do here, I'm still learning and this is my second semester. There's sporting events of all kinds (along with being an NCAA Division I school, there are also TONS of intramural sports to get involved with), movie nights with free refreshments, karaoke nights in the student union (aka the Tilley) concerts with well-known bands (Skillet is coming in December, woot woot!!) and so much more. There's paintball, there's archery. You can go to snow-flex (the mountain near the school is covered in artificial snow allowing you to ski, snowboard, and tube any time of the year). And then off campus you can go salsa dancing, swing dancing, head down to the dollar theatre, or you can go to every college student's favorite place: Walmart. There are always exciting things going on at Liberty, from white-water rafting trips to hiking trips to canoeing trips to horse-back riding. I'm pretty sure the only thing Liberty doesn't have is a roller coaster. They even built a skate park recently! I'm telling you, don't listen to people who say that Liberty is boring. There is ALWAYS fun stuff going on here.

    Am learning a lot

    Ever since coming to Liberty last spring, I have learned so much. And not just from the professors, but from the students too. Everyone here is so open and friendly and willing to help, as long as you have the courage to ask. The atmosphere is so encouraging; it makes the students want to try their best and accomplish great things.

    Campus Safety

    liberty has its own police department whose only jurisdiction is on campus, meaning their full attention is on liberty's safety. lupd is found surveying campus at night to ensure safety in all places. they are also at every sport game on campus and at every convocation. liberty takes pride in its campus safety.

    Greek Life

    liberty does not take place in the greek life. however, there are still several clubs and activities and opportunities for fellowship among students.

    Clubs and Activities

    there are several clubs on campus from a pro-life club to the interior design club. there are several activities as well, such as open mic, late skate night, sports games, movie nights (which take place in a field with a huge projector screen), and many more.

    Great for these types of students

    liberty is great for students looking for a large school with a lot of opportunities in a more rural setting. liberty is located in lynchburg city, but it is at the foot of liberty mountain. looking to the east when on campus, the mountains are seen. looking to the west, wards rd is seen which is full of stores and restaurants. lynchburg is a smaller city, so if a student is looking for a quieter place that still has things to do, liberty is a great place for that. liberty is also great for those looking for a christian experience without being too heavy on rules or restrictions. liberty still allows students to be who they are. liberty's intention is to train students in various fields in the work force, as well as to train them to be champions for christ.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    many students spray paint the spirit rock that liberty has on campus. the main building, demoss hall, is characterized by its huge pillars and steps leading up to the doors. these steps have huge railings lining made of concrete, about 5 feet in width. many students like to take chairs and tables up to the railings and sit there on sunny days.

    Bang for the buck

    while liberty may be an expensive school to some, but it offers many scholarships to help with those expenses. at liberty, students definitely get a good bang for their buck, as liberty owns several locations around lynchburg that are free to students, including a racket ball court. lynchburg offers many excellent activities for students that are free, including snowflex, the year-round ski slope.

    What to do for fun

    on liberty's campus there are several activities to partake in. there are several intramural teams including soccer and ultimate frisbee. there are several fields and courts for various sports if students ever want to get a team together for a few hours. liberty has an ice skating rink primarily used for the hockey teams, but is often open for all students for late skate nights. liberty has a year-round ski slope that is free to all students, as are lessons for either skiing or snowboarding. liberty hosts open mics in the student center every other monday. almost every weekend there is a school wide activity happening.

    Food and Dining

    food is excellent at liberty. the reber-thomas dining hall, affectionately called the rot, is the main dining hall on campus which has a lot of variety in its dishes. there is a section within that caters to those with gluten-free diets. the hangar is a smaller food court which accepts money, flames cash, or dining dollars. there is variety there as well, including names we all know, like pizza hut. jazzman's is a coffee shop located on the second floor of the library. there is also a starbucks in the bookstore. the keyhole is a small convenience store on campus. several off campus locations accept flames cash, so many students are able to go to their favorite restaurants using their id card.

    Dorm Life

    dorm life is one of the best aspects of liberty. there are several options as far as the type of dorm a student may want to live in. the quads are composed of a common room with a kitchen, five bedrooms (each holding two people), and two bathrooms. there are four of these on each floor. the hill is, as the name suggests, on a hill. the style of these dorms is community style, with one long hall and two bathrooms with several showers and toilets. dorms on the circle are the same style. across the highway on east campus (which is connected to main campus with both a tunnel and a bridge) which is more apartment style housing. all dorms have two resident assistants which serve to keep order in the dorm per hall, two spiritual life directors per hall who serve to ensure that all students are doing well spiritually, and several prayer leaders who host prayer groups once a week. there is much variety as far as the style of housing, and all dorms work hard to ensure community and friendship. no dorms are co-ed, however each sister (female) dorm is assigned a brother (male) dorm. these dorms do activities with each other around campus.

    Academic Rigor

    while liberty accepts over 90% of applicants, but is very strict on a student's academic progress throughout the years enrolled. failing more than two classes will get you on academic probation. liberty professors work hard to ensure that you are doing your best in the classroom, but they can not hold your hand throughout your college years. a lot responsibility falls upon you to keep your grades up and ensure that you have what you need to achieve this.

    Tips for prospective students

    i would suggest to any student attending liberty to go out and meet as many people as possible. there are many activities throughout the school year designed for students to meet each other, all of which are a lot of fun. i would also suggest that each student goes up to the monogram or snowflex as much as possible. the monogram is atop a magnificent mountain overlooking all of lynchburg, and snowflex is the year-round slope that is free to all students. in short, take advantage of as many opportunities that liberty makes happen as you possibly can.

    In three sentences

    liberty is an absolutely fantastic school due to its involved staff, passionate students, and overall christian experience. as a christian school it carries certain stigmas, but i have found that despite the rules that are just there to protect us, all students are able and given many opportunities to have fun during their college experience. i am so proud to attend liberty university, where they truly do train champions for christ to go out into the work field and disciple to all.

    Tips for prospective students

    Liberty offers College for a Weekend four times a year. It is an excellent opportunity to get a feel for the University. They plan a weekend filled with activities for prospective students and parents. If you are considering Liberty, it will give you a good feeling about how life will be when you arrive as a student. During the weekend, you get to stay in an on campus dorm with students. You can eat at the Reber-Thomas dining hall and experience the tastes of Liberty. For each College for a Weekend CFAW the college brings in a name in Christian music to perform a concert for the weekend. As a CFAW, you receive a ticket to the concert. I found that staying for the weekend really gave me prospective that would shape my experience as a Liberty student. Also: check out www.libertyu.com for student blogs.

    Bang for the buck

    As a private, Christian university Liberty is at a higher cost. However, they do offer scholarships that help. They also hold scholarship searches on campus on a fairly frequent basis to help students find scholarship opportunities. They understand that students will have trouble paying and want to help keep you at Liberty. I believe that the education provided by Liberty University is well worth the cost of going.

    Am enjoying being here

    Liberty has a beautiful campus, surrounded by mountains that offer breath-taking views. There is always some type of activity around campus. At Liberty, there is something for everyone. The student support system is excellent. If you need anything, there are people around to care for you. On a hall, there are two Resident Directors, two Spiritual Life Directors and several Prayer Leaders. All of the leadership on ones hall are always generous and available to help whenever needed. There are a wide variety of sporting events, as well.

    Am learning a lot

    Liberty University has so much to offer academically. The university has a variety of majors and is currently expanding to add more. They have great programs whether you are an undergraduate student or graduate. The professors are excellent; knowing and loving the subject on which they are teaching. If you cannot find what you are looking for on the residential campus or simply do not want to move, they also offer courses on Liberty University Online. The courses are excellent and they have flexible start times.

    A student that wants a Christian based education with challenging academics and exciting, innovative activities. Liberty has opportunities for all majors and if students are looking for a big-campus feel then Liberty could be for them.

    Tips for prospective students

    The most important thing to do before choosing a college is to visit the campus. I think you really get a feel for the energy and life of the students on campus. Liberty is not for everyone so a visit is essential if you are interested. Another great thing that Liberty offers is college for a weekend. Prospective students can stay in the dorms and attend classes in which they are interested. It is a great opportunity to take advantage of.

    Bang for the buck

    For a private, Christian school, Liberty is very affordable. They offer great scholarships and flexible payment plans. My interactions with the financial aid office have been very positive and they are very cooperative with your situation.

    Am enjoying being here

    Despite some rumors about the rules at Liberty and the Liberty Way, I feel that most of the rules are reasonable, especially for a freshmen. Liberty provides an array activities to replace partying. There are so many things to do on campus that it is almost impossible to be bored. Whether its a football game, or an event that student activities puts on, weekends are filled with things to do and many people stay on campus. There are hundreds of clubs to choose from and very easy to get involved.

    Am learning a lot

    Liberty has a high standard of learning and expects their students to want to learn. In every one of my classes at Liberty, I had to put time and work outside of the class to succeed. The professors are extremely helpful and really do care about their students. The classes provide an blend of reading as well as classroom discussion and projects.

    Liberty is a beautiful place to be and a very friendly environment. Everything that you need is on campus or close by. Liberty is a lovely college.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty requires very little money for people to attend compared to most private colleges. You get more out of the college than you pay to attend the school.

    Will enjoy being here

    I have been to the campus many times over the past few years and I have enjoyed every minute of being there. I have attended many concerts and events that took place there and it brought me to life living on that campus.

    Will learn a lot

    I am sure that if I attend this college, I will learn all that I need to learn to prepare me for the business world.

    The rules really aren't that bad. People outside of LU makes up some of the weirdest rumors, but once I got here, I realized things were not nearly as strict as people made them out to be. Most of them just help to make the environment here to be encouraging and edifying.

    It is a little pricy here, but for the education and personal touches from the teachers and dorm connecting activities that make it almost impossible to becoem homesick, I would say you are spending every dime very wisely.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy being there because the campus atmosphere is so fun, everyone is willing to talk with you even if they dont know you. Also Student Activities is always having some event happening which is a cool way to have fun and a great way to meet new people through their events.

    Am learning a lot

    The ratio student to teacher ratio is on average 25:1, which is so amazing since there are 12,000 students on campus. You really get to know your teachers and your teachers really get to know you. The education is 10x better because its more personal rather than having all lecture classes.

    Individuals who wish to be in an encouraging environment with a longing to increase in knowledge. Also, since this is a private Christian college, followers of Christ will find convocation three times a week more likely pleasurable then someone who does not share those beliefs. God is in this place, and I believe as you dig deeper into the school it will reveal itself in deeper ways.

    Tips for prospective students

    Surround yourself with friends who you wish to be. Early on, the friends you make will greatly impact your college years. If your desire lay in achieving high grades then find friends who share that yearning.

    Bang for the buck

    Though the price is quite exuberant, it is worth the money. The campus is continually building and growing, advancing both with the buildings and with the level of excellence in academics, as well as athletics. It is a hefty bill though, and I do not wish to hide that by any means.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus, set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, is absolutely beautiful and refreshing. Beyond mere appearance, I have met the most amazing people there. Students and professors both, have greatly increased my faith in Jesus Christ, illuminating the truth and challenging me to seek out God for myself. It is overall an uplifting place, filled with encouragement.

    Am learning a lot

    A class can be made or broken based on the ability of the professor and at Liberty University they are overflowing with well educated, amiable professors. Men and women not only teaching their classes well, but also willing to meet with the students, helping them in a personal way. Obviously there are professors who were not as enjoyable. For a high majority though, there are unbelievably talented professors.

    Campus Safety

    While the campus is not especially dangerous, it is not particularly safe either. A bill passed in the SGA allowing concealed carry of weapons on campus. Also, the school does nothing for roommate conflicts even if a person is mentally unstable to the point of injuring himself and/or others.

    Greek Life

    none

    Clubs and Activities

    While there are many options for clubs, they are often small and inactive. The Student Government Association is responsible to oversee the clubs. However, the SGA is very disorganized and most things end up in a mess that the club has to take responsibility for.

    It is very expensive. For many of the majors the degree does not seem to match the expense. Also, there are many hidden fees and expenses that the school tries to slip in.

    What to do for fun

    The school is in a very small town, so there is not much in the way of entertainment. However, for the active minded, there is hiking and exploring to do.

    Food and Dining

    There are many options for dining on campus and the cafeteria has been working on getting better.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is a hit-or-miss situation. Some people have great experiences whereas other people have horrid, miserable experiences. A lot depends on the leadership on your hall and how well you do with following rules dictating your life.

    Academic Rigor

    A very few of the programs are challenging, but most are a cakewalk compared to other colleges and universities. Anyone is accepted, and most students are babied into passing.

    Tips for prospective students

    Figure everything out yourself and constantly revise your plans. Do not depend on the school counselors and advisers. Only go to them with specific questions instead of using them to plan out your entire college career.

    Liberty is expensive, no doubt. But it is so worth it. You can truly utilize your whole buck here.

    Since Lynchburg is in the mountains, there's lots of outdoor activities to do. You can also enjoy dorm life by watching a movie with the girls or going to do something with our brother dorm. I like to play soccer and guitar with friends in my spare time.

    Food and Dining

    Liberty's dining is provided by Sodexo. The dining hall is pretty good. There are many options as to what you may want to eat. There are also other locations on campus that are included in our meal swipes.

    Dorm Life

    I love my hall! I live on East so I get a higher luxury of living. My quad has our own full kitchen, living room area, and laundry facilities. Each room also has their own bathroom with a shower.

    As a freshman, my classes aren't too hard. I'm just learning how to really study, manage my time, and get used to the university level expectations. Rigor here is taken seriously, though. Liberty has some of the toughest majors in the nation.

    They have amazing block parties and a super event staff that is run by students. There is a large rock in the middle of campus....you are not supposed to touch it, but it gets dressed up and spray painted regularly. There is also a large fountain in the courtyard that cant seem to stay water blue. You never know if it will be dyed red, or if it will be overflowing with bubbles, or if there will be a million rubber duckies in it...

    Bang for the buck

    The online classes at Liberty University are super affordable, yet I do not feel as though I am getting less than I would at any other top college.

    I am a blackbelt in Karate, I travel around the country competing in two circuits: the AAU, and the WKA/NKF. I also enjoy skiing and traveling.

    They are catered by Marriott... the food isn't the BEST food i've eaten in my life, but it really offers a wide variety and there is definitely something for ANY type of diet or preference.

    Dorm Life

    I am currently an on-line student, but I did attend Liberty years ago and stayed on campus for a few semesters. They added a whole new section to campus and have Quads that are like mini suites and apartments. They are great and pretty private, yet you still get to meet a bunch of people.

    You will learn so much here and succeed in whatever career you choose.

    A snowflex that is open all year round. Ice skating ring. They have alot of concerts, block party's, and raves on campus. Student activities is always planning things for students like open mic night, horseback riding, white water rafting, outdoor movie night, and school wide talent shows. Then there are things like intramural sports.

    Food and Dining

    The food is really good, and you get lots of choices. It is nice to have the different choices because this way you do not have to eat at the dining hall every day. You also what is called flames cash that you can use at different chain restaurants off campus which is really nice.

    Dorm Life

    Dorms are a good size compared to other major universities. On main campus you live with two other people or you can pick nicer dorms where you only share with 1 other person. You have two RAs on two SLDs on your hall who are willing to try and help you with anything you need, even if you are just homesick and need a hug.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends on your major. I am a biology major and it is very difficult, you have to put in lots and lots of time to do well.

    Coming to Liberty is one of the best decisions you will ever make. If you decide to come here, meet as many people as you can, and get involved. Remember that you are here for school, and you can not do everything.

There is a small church on campus that is always open so that you can go and pray any time. Directly in front of the house on campus, there is a secret garden with a fountain. Its my favorite place on campus to get away.

    Bang for the buck

    You will not find more in a private college for the money anywhere on the globe. Enough said.

    What to do for fun

    If you like sports then you will never be bored. Everything imaginable has a team and you can easily lose track of what your doing at college in the first place. Not being able to go into the room of the opposite sex makes it difficult to find a place to just watch movies but you can watch T.V. in multiple places.

    Food and Dining

    Everyone complains about the ROT but I don't think they were poor enough for their own good. The food here isn't bad and there are other choices on campus if you want to be picky. Anything is accessible if you don't mind burning the calories you just ate to make it back to your dorm.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is amazing here. Prayer groups are a way to share personal issue without having to let everyone in the quad know whats going on. The curfew may seem dumb, but if you are out after 12 you might want to reassess your priorities.

    Academic Rigor

    You wont have to kill yourself studying but you cant go out every night and play either. I would say that it is easily doable if your priorities are in the right place.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't fight the rules here. You may not agree with them but you will have rules you don't agree with for the rest of your life and it will prepare you for that.

    In three sentences

    If you are a christian and looking for a college, Liberty is the place your looking for. It has everything that you could dream of as far as sports are concerned but it also strongly focuses your faith. You will learn why you believe what you believe here.

    Campus Safety

    We have our own police department here, LUPD, that patrols only our campus. We do not depend on the Lynchburg Police Department. All of our officers are fully trained and armed just as any other police officer.

    What to do for fun

    There is never a time where there is nothing to do here. You can go snowboarding, snow skiing or tubing at the Snowflex, go to various activities at the Tilley Student Center, or go to the gym to do anything from work out to swimming to playing basketball or indoor soccer. We have any sport you can imagine here, and there is a game of some type just about every day. There is an equestrian center down the road if you want to go horseback riding as well. Liberty's campus is always alive and so much fun!

    Food and Dining

    You have several dining options on campus, and if you don't want that you are in walking distance of several off-campus restaurants. The cafeteria, or the ROT as we call it here, has pretty good food. They make home-cooked meals, pizza, pasta, Chinese food, salads, sandwiches, Mexican food, etc. There is also two SubConnections, which are like Subways. We have a Chick-Fil-A and Starbucks on campus along with a brand new Dunkin' Donuts. There is a pedestrian bridge over Wards Road with many restaurants to go to if you aren't really feeling college food.

    Dorm Life

    Every hall has a hall meeting on Tuesday nights at 10 PM. You get to know the girls through that and learn all of the announcements around campus. Every hall/dorm has a brother dorm that does activities with them on weekends. There are room checks every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during Convocation so every room stays clean! I haven't met anyone that I don't like, and the opportunities to meet amazing people here are endless!

    Academic Rigor

    Most of my classes are very difficult. The classes that are supposed to be simple, like Freshman Seminar and Biblical Worldview, are simple. The real academic courses get complicated and all of the professors are very knowledgeable in their own field. They don't teach classes out of their field, so they are very passionate about the subjects they teach.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you do not want to be on fire for God do not come here. There is so much great worship and mission opportunities you cannot get away from it! Be ready to be thrown into a large number of people with a lot of different interests and personalities, just as any college. You have to study hard to make good grades here; it does not just come easy for most classes!

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a wonderful school with amazing academics and professors that actually work in the field in which they teach. You are completely immersed in God's Word here. There is so much to do here; you almost have to force yourself to stay in the dorms so you can actually study!

    You definitely get your moneys worth when it comes to food, dorming, educational help (c-lab, tutoring, etc), and fun activities (gym, tilly (rec. room), hiking to the monogram, etc).

    What to do for fun

    There are endless activities to do on and off campus. Almost all activities that are on campus are free with your flames pass (college ID). You will never be bored!

    Campus Safety

    Liberty has it's own police department.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for people who want to have a great time, get a good education, and grow closer to God each day!

    What to do for fun

    There are many things you can do for fun at Liberty! To mention a few, you can go to Snowflex to ski or snowboard, you can go to the gym to workout or play sports, or you can hang with friends at different places around campus.

    Food and Dining

    I think the food and dining is good overall at Liberty. There are many places you can go to eat so you can never get bored of eating the same thing. You can go to The Hangar, the Reber-Thomas Dining Hall (the rot as we call it), Sub Connection, Chick-fil-A, Dunkin Donuts, Doc's Diner, and other places right outside the campus. What is convenient is that Liberty is very close to Wal-Mart, so you can easily get access to food or other items you need. You can drive or walk there or to other places outside the campus.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms at Liberty are nice and comfortable. I currently stay at the South Tower and I am happy with it. I like the girls on my hall and have made some great friends. If the dorm you are staying in requires a bit of walking to get to class or to get to the Vines Center like mine does, you can always wait for the bus and take that. There is curfew but in all honesty, it is not torturous. On the weekdays and Sunday, except for Tuesday and Friday, you have to be back on your hall by 12 am but you can sign out to go to the clab (ILRC computer lab) and stay until 2 am. On Tuesdays you have to be back by 10 to have hall meeting and go to your prayer group which is like a mini Bible study. Fridays and Saturdays you have to be back by 12:30 am.

    Academic Rigor

    I am only a freshman at Liberty so far, and the majority of my classes are required for all students going there. The classes have been excellent and not too hard right now. If it is hard, you can always get help from a tutor, your professor, or even a friend. It's important to get work done in time and to study well. As hard as it is, discipline yourself to not procrastinate, you'll be thankful in the end!

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're anything like me, Liberty seems huge and uncomfortable, but that will soon disintegrate. Once you start living there, you will begin to adjust well. Although it is huge, there are people that I have never personally talked to but I see them around campus all the time, so eventually it won't seem huge at all. When you actually start coming to LU, I advise you to make the effort to go up to people and introduce yourself to them, ask them where they are from, what they're major is, and other questions you can think of. That way you'll have an easier time making friends and becoming more comfortable with Liberty. If you're worried or scared, don't be because God will be with you every step of the way! So if you're going to come to Liberty, get ready for an enjoyable college experience!

    In three sentences

    Liberty Univeristy is an amazing Christian school where students are being trained to become Champions for Christ. There are so many different things to do at there that will keep you entertained. Liberty will help you become the person God made you to be.

    Campus Safety

    The Police Department is great. They send out safety alert if any suspicious persons are reported, and patrol the campus regularly. When I was being stalked by my ex, they did a wonderful job of checking up on me regularly to make sure everything was okay, and helping me get the necessary restraining order.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Place: The rooftop of DeMoss. It's so cool up there, looking out over campus, and it's got plenty of benches and tables to sit at and do homework or juts hang out. Tradition: Christmas Convo. Instead of a normal convocation, on Reading Day they have Christmas Convo. You're not required to attend, but you seriously don't want to miss it. It is the funniest thing you've ever seen with the stage decked out with Christmas lights and glitter and a Christmas tree. The campus band does spoofs of songs, and they get to make good-humored fun of well-known people on campus. You also get to wear your PJ's if you want to!

    Bang for the buck

    Honestly, even though I have the most expensive major on campus (Aviation...it's because of the flight fees), Liberty is the cheapest option for a private college. And, it's got great professors, and a great campus. So, is it worth it? I think definitely yes.

    What to do for fun

    There's sure to be free time on weekends, and you're sure to find something fun to do. Ice skating, snowboarding year-round at Snowflex, hiking or biking on the Liberty Mountain trails, playing indoor soccer, going to hockey, football, or basketball games ... you name it.

    Food and Dining

    For cafeteria foot, the dining hall is pretty decent; it gets boring after a while, though. Doc's Diner has really good food, but needs more selection on their menu. We have a Dunkin' Donuts, and it is seriously the best place to grab a sandwich for lunch or coffee for a late-night study. There are also plenty of places within walking distance of campus to go for dinner.

    Dorm Life

    Our dorm always has tailgates with our brother dorm during football season, movie nights and game nights. It's a lot of fun! It's aslo really nice to have a hallmate stop you in the hallway and ask if classes are going alright, or stick their head in the room and ask if you need anything because they heard you're sick. My RAs are the best, I swear. I can go to them just to talk, or ask for prayer. And, when I was being stalked by an ex-boyfriend, my RA sat in the police office with me, and helped me get a restraining order. They really care about the safety and happiness of the girls on their hall.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are hard enough to make you study and stay on top of homework. However, they are easy enough there is plenty of time for hanging out with the friends. Classes will make you stretch your mind, but they will not rule your life and take away all free time. Also, the professors are so helpful. There have been times that I've been swamped with homework, and absolutely unable to get an assignment done properly and on time. I've simply told the professor that I can have the assignment done by that evening, and they will graciously give me an extension on it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Unless you like huge crowds don't come for CFAW. Our campus suddenly has 2,000 high school students added to the normal number of residents. It gets crowded and cramped. Instead, stay overnight with a friend who already attends, or come down for Friendly Fridays with your family for a tour of the school. It will give you a better taste for what my school is really like.

    Snow flex is a unique location on campus with a beautiful lodge and all year ski/snowboard facilities. The LU monogram is fun to hike to as well, with a gazebo as well.

    What to do for fun

    Snow-flex is a place to ski and snowboard all year long! The LaHaye Ice Skating center is fun as well as the Tilley center with a game room, gym with basketball courts, pool, weight room area, gym area, etc. The Tower Theatre on campus holds many great productions throughout the year. Student Activities also holds great events through the year such as movie nights, on campus walk/run races, Christmas and Springtime events, etc. There are also many places to hike and do outdoor activities in the beautiful mountains around Lynchburg.

    Food and Dining

    The main dining hall has many options including a salad bar, a mexican area, pizza and pasta area, wok or asian area, a sandwich bar, a grille, cereal, and a main dish option. There is also a balance area with healthy and gluten free food. There are several other dining choices including SubConnection, Jazzman's cafe, Dunkin Donuts, Chick-fil-A, and a Bistro.

    Dorm Life

    There are three main areas to live, the hill, the quads, and east campus. The hill is a hall style which is great for freshmen. For upperclassmen, east is a nice option, but it is farther from main campus and is more expensive. East is more of an apartment or suite style. The quads are a middle of the road option.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are important at Liberty as well as the attendance policy. Online classes are usually more relaxed it seems, in many cases. Classes within one's major are usually tough, as is expected, so students learn the material.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students should be prepared to study Bible and Theology classes along with the classes for their major. Also, students should be prepared to live by the rules established by the school in the Liberty Way which are appropriate and reasonable rules. Students should be prepared to live in an ethnically and culturally diverse environment with students literally from all over the world. Liberty is also a very missions-oriented school and trains students to have giving hearts!

    In three sentences

    Liberty Univeristy is an incredible school where I am blessed to attend. I am learning to become a musical professional, in the educational field and in the performance field. I am also learning how to have a Christ-centered Biblical worldview in my career.

    Liberty University has there own police department. They recently made a four way stop for an intersection that was seemingly unsafe for students crossing the street. They are always looking out for the best for everyone.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs that you can join. There is the pre-med club, family and consumer science club, pro-life club, break dancing club, chemistry club, and so so so many more! The Student Activities department plans events almost every weekend for students to attend. From concerts to shows to carnivals, there will be something planned for everyone!

    Great for these types of students

    Students who want to have a social life but also take school seriously will thrive at Liberty University. There are so many opportunities to make close friendships while also being able to pursue a worthwhile degree. Liberty University is the largest Christian university in the world. This atmosphere is so extraordinary that you will not find it anywhere else.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty University awards a large amount of scholarships to incoming freshmen that have worked hard in high school. Students with high GPAs and standardized test scores will be rewarded accordingly. There are so many amazing facilities that are available to students that this college experience will be so unlike any other place. The money that each student is responsible is so worth it because of all of the amazing moments that students get to be a part of.

    What to do for fun

    The LaHaye Student Union is a very nice facility. It is a full gym with a cardio room, basketball and volleyball courts, weight rooms, and more. Next to east campus, there are outdoor sand volleyball courts that are great places to meet new friends. There are plenty of places in town to visit such as the dollar movie theater, Sweet Frog frozen yogurt, and the Blue Ridge Mall. The Liberty sports games are certainly the most exciting games around. From football to soccer, field hockey and lacrosse, Liberty's sports are the best.

    Food and Dining

    From Dunkin Donuts to Doc's Diner, there is something on campus that everyone will like. The main cafeteria on campus is the Reber-Thomas Dining Hall. It has so much variety. There is a Chick-fil-a and a Subconnection, which is similar to Subway. The Bistro is a very convenient place for sandwiches on the go. There is a nice Starbucks in the bookstore and Jazzman's coffee shop in the library.

    Dorm Life

    Living on a hall can be one of the greatest experiences at Liberty University. With prayer leaders, student life directors, resident advisors, and resident directors, all students are placed under a group of responsible student leaders that genuinely care about them. Every hall plans individual activities, either with themselves or with your brother dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    Whether you choose to be a part of the Honors Program or not, Liberty's academics should be taken very seriously. Liberty has an excellent Honors Program. Everyone is taught the same things, but Honors students get a chance to do a little extra in order to show their knowledge of the material. Most students are not Honors students, and still have to work hard for their grades.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be excited for convocation. You will get to hear some of the greatest speakers in the world talk about topics that they are fired up about. As a freshmen, choose to live on a hall so that you will be able to meet friends right from the start. It is harder to make friends in apartment-style living, although it is definitely still a nice option to have on campus. Take advantage of all of the concerts and activities that are planned. Liberty's Student Activities office is so creative and resourceful when it comes to having fun. Lastly, don't get too wrapped up in all of the fun activities and speakers. Take your classes seriously because your professors care about your education and you personally more than you know.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University has a strong, Christian atmosphere that fills the campus with God's joy and love. It is a very large community of students, but between hall activities, intramural sports, and certain small classes, finding friends is made much less stressful. The facilities on Liberty's campus are phenomenal, and convocation is an enjoyable break from everyday classes.

    It is expensive but the benefits are so worth it! East campus has a clubhouse with beach volleyball on the sand and a pool for the hot days. And the gym is HUGE-you have plenty to do for very little additional costs.

    What to do for fun

    They have ATV's, a river to go canoeing, snowboarding and skiing on campus and plenty more. They have a theater that is cheap for students, a hang out area called the Tilly which includes flat sceen TV's, ping pong tables and billards. And right across from the Tilly is an ice skating rink! You really don't need to go anywhere to have fun!

    Food and Dining

    Plenty of places to eat on campus like Chick Fil A and Sonic!! They have the cafeteria for those who want to stick to the basic meal plan as well.

    Dorm Life

    Plenty of people to get to know and there are dorms everywhere. They do have curfew but I don't think its unreasonable seeing as you are going to college to get an education. You can't get an education by staying out late all the time!

    Academic Rigor

    They have the honors society for those of you who like to go the extra mile and plenty of community groups for each major!

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early and look for outside scholarships. Liberty helped me get as much as I could but it did not cover everything. Also, it is easier to find more scholarships once you get there.

    In three sentences

    The atmosphere is encouraging and the scenery is beautiful. Virginia's mountains give the college campus a relaxing feel to it with plenty to do around campus. Plus, what students wouldn't want to have a place to snowboard on campus?

    The cost for attending this university is significantly less than other similar universities. I don't have any complaints about the education as it relates to the cost of attendance.

    What to do for fun

    There are literally dozens of socially and spiritually appropriate activities, events, organizations, concerts, prayer groups, and trips for students to participate in.

    Food and Dining

    The food is reasonably priced and well made considering how large the university is and how diverse the student population is. There is something for everyone.

    Dorm Life

    Although I do not live in the dorms, I have visited and can confirm that the quality of their dormitories and student life activities are excellent and well managed.

    Academic Rigor

    Courses are reasonably intense. As a graduate student there is an expectation of academic excellence that requires the students to invest their own time into maintaining their studies.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would recommend having a strong relationship with your professors. Unlike other universities that I have attended, these professors are accessible and willing to help in any circumstance.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a diverse and very focused Christian university. I find the academic system to be very well organized, providing students with both theoretical and application-based learning. Most importantly, they both believe in and promote a sound Christian experience and lifestyle.

    Afforable

    What to do for fun

    Here at Liberty they provide a ton of activities for students: snowboarding at Liberty Mountains Snowflex, hiking on Liberty Mountain, Ice Skating at the LaHaye Ice Center, and there are two clubhouses with swimming pools, tennis, free video games, and much more.

    Food and Dining

    Someone the food is outstanding and other times it is not so great.

    Dorm Life

    All the dorms are awesome and available for a affordable price of 3,000-4,000 dollars a semester.

    Academic Rigor

    Academic support is everywhere at Liberty.

    Tips for prospective students

    Liberty University is probably one of the easiest colleges in Virginia, because they help you in every area they someone could possibly struggle with. If you have a hard time in math, they have free tutors for that, if you struggle in English they have tutors for that as well.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is the largest Christian university in the world. At this university you will find lots of exciting people who love Jesus Christ and live their life's to serve him. Liberty Universities motto is Training Champions for Christ, although some may not be Christians here mostly everyone enjoys the energetic atmosphere.

    People like to get really spirited for the games: painting their bodies to support their football team.

    I have heard, it's kind of pricey, but well worth it because everyone wants to help you learn, and strive. And the people on campus are very nice.

    What to do for fun

    You can go snowboarding, and skiing.

    Food and Dining

    The food is very good, and a popular place is the ROT

    Dorm Life

    The people seem to be very nice, and their is a dollar movie theater where the dorm gets together.

    Like any college, it's one that you have to work at, and push yourself to succeed.

    Campus Safety

    As you know it may be difficult for your parents to let you go once you leave for college and vice versa! But now you can ease their minds, because on campus we have our very own police department on campus!! They'll answer any questions you have about safety and they're really nice too!

    What to do for fun

    On the Liberty campus there are tons to do! There is a Snow Mountain for all who likes to ski, snowboard, and tubing. For all the romantics out there take your love to the Horse Farm and take a ride on some beautiful horses! You can go to the gym, or drive downtown with your friends to the best coffee shops and farmers market!

    Food and Dining

    Food on campus can be rather good and very interesting (not that good) but, Liberty does have something called Flames Cash which can go towards food off campus such as Starbucks, Sonic, Dominoes, etc which will be included with the meal plan if you choose it (Financial Check-In!)

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life can be the best or the worst! It all depends on who is in charge, the people on your hall, room mate etc. But at the end of the day, it's all about how you take your experience with the people you'll be living with!

    Academic Rigor

    There is nothing like have a professor who knows what they're talking about and are really passionate in what they do; and it really shows when they teach as well. The only downside is because of the student body being rather large, it'll be a little tougher to get a one-on-one approach and ask the questions that you may have! However, most of the professors will always respond to your questions either in e-mails or being able to go to their offices which are on campus.

    Tips for prospective students

    For all students whom are planning to attend in the fall or spring, make sure you do not wait the last minute to do financial check-in or housing. First come, first serve. Trust me there are 12,000+ students on campus and in some cases it can really show, so try your best to get an early start on all things necessary to get ready for a rockin' semester!

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a school that either you will absolutely love it or hate it! However, in my case I love Liberty and it's a great school. Every person that I've come across are unique and different; and each student here has a genuine interest in getting to know you as a person and as a fellow brother and sister in Christ!

    Intramural sports, bowling, ice skating, movies, concerts, dining out, sports-team games (football, basketball, soccer, etc.), various interest organizations and clubs, and many more.

    Enjoy the freedom of living away from home, but stay focused on your studies. Be aware that Liberty has high expectations for behavior, as well as academics, so be at your best. Be sure to ask questions and seek help when you need it. Everybody at Liberty is willing to be there for you.

    Liberty is a great place to grow both as a student and as a person, and I love it. The professors are not only excellent, but care about their students. There are also lots of extra-curricular activities and social events to make it possible to meet other students and get to know them.

    Greek Life

    Sorry, we don't have that!

    Clubs and Activities

    Student Activities always hosts great activities and it'd be fun to help come up with them. All of our sports teams are good and I can tell how close they are. If you're good, why not try out? Don't miss a opportunity, there are so many at LU.

    What to do for fun

    Go to the dollar theatre, basketball games, ice skating, baseball games for sure, NEVER miss a football game. Enjoy fellowship with friends and seek encouragement.

    Food and Dining

    Always go to the buffet and subco for your swipes, the rot is occasionally good. Chicfila and jamba juice are heavenly tasting, if you have the money.

    Dorm Life

    My hall is like my family and I've been so blessed being here. Sharing two bathrooms with 70 girls daily can be hectic but everything else is worth it. Not all dorms share a bathroom and shower, if you're on east you get your own kitchen and all which is better than where I stay. But I love my circle family and couldn't imagine moving from them.

    Academic Rigor

    Academically here it was a struggle the first semester for me, but I think that's with everyone. It is a big difficulty difference than highschool was. The bible courses are challenging but so informational, and all your teachers are willing to help you work through it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go on rate my professors to help you pick what professors to take next year.

    In three sentences

    My first time on campus was freshman orientation and I thought it was beautiful, and now I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. I didn't know anyone coming in and the community just feels like one big family. It challenges you in your faith while you're here but it is also so rewarding.

    What to do for fun

    There is always something fun to do on campus. We have an indoor pool and an ice center, as well as DavidÃ?Â?s Place (outdoor pool, pool tables, tv. etc). There is an open field where people run and play frisbee and such. Not to mention the new Jerry Falwell Library- you seriously wonÃ?Â?t want to leave, it is an amazing building. The study rooms are great - you can write on the walls!

    Food and Dining

    The Rot is pretty good, but there are also quick places like Simply to Go that occasionally have edible foods. I am a big fan of the sub connections and chc-fil-a. We also have access by walking to Wards Rd., which has a lot of restaurants on it.

    Dorm Life

    Living on campus is an awesome way to make friends and it really holds you accountable in your faith. Everyone is watching out for you and you have so many mentors on your hall. You always have someone to talk to and someone to help and pray for you!

    Academic Rigor

    Before I began attending Liberty University I was embarrassed to say that is where I would be attending because it did not have the best reputation academically. However, once I started attending I found out that it is the complete opposite. Most of the classes require you to work hard to get an A or a B, but with the right amount of work, it is attainable! If you don't try, you will most likely fail quite a few classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Dont let the notion people spread that Liberty is for dumb people get to you, the academics are great and the classes have just the right amount of challenge.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University has a much better academic program than most people believe. The community is great, you can really make friends if you live on campus. Being a commuter makes it harder to meet people, but the community is still great!

    Campus Safety

    The campus always feels safe and security are constantly monitoring.

    Greek Life

    There is no Greek life allowed at Liberty University.

    Clubs and Activities

    Liberty has a large amount of clubs and activities, they pretty much have it all.

    Great for these types of students

    It's great for anyone who wants to grow spiritually.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Liberty owns a large amount of land so you can go all over the mountains or just hang out at a lake.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is a lot of money, However it is a lot less than I had expected. For all the great things that I get to take advantage of here, I am surprised by how low the price is.

    What to do for fun

    Liberty offers movie nights, hiking, fishing, four-wheeling, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking and many different things that would take me too long to mention. All equipment is free to use for LU students.

    Food and Dining

    The food is good although the main dining hall is nothing to brag about.

    Dorm Life

    Everyone on a dorm becomes rather close. We have prayer groups once a week where we fellowship together and just get to learn more about one another.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty does offer a challenging academic aspect but I have never felt as though it was impossible for me to complete. I always feel as though I am learning great skills that I will need later in life.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are coming to Liberty you must realize that there are some more rules to follow but all of these rules are things that you probably should be doing if you were planning on doing well in college.

    In three sentences

    I think that Liberty University is a great college. Liberty is a great place to grow academically, as well as spiritually. The only complaint that I could make about Liberty is the parking.

    Campus Safety

    I have never felt threatened on Liberty's campus, ever.

    Greek Life

    No greek life here

    Clubs and Activities

    Sooooooooo many clubs, honestly won't even bother, you'll just have to see for yourself.

    Great for these types of students

    It's completely possible to get by yourself when you want to but there are also plenty of opportunities to socialize. Liberty offers opportunities for both types of students and is not particularly swayed in one direction.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Every MWF morning at convocation the worship leader announces birthday messages that students write on a note give to him before convocation at the edge of the stage. At least once a week someone gives him a Happy Birthday Reptar!' note.

    Bang for the buck

    So many things to do, so many clubs, service opportunities, you name it and you could probably do it here. The academics are also excellent, the counselors will make sure you stay on track with your degree and the teachers are always willing to work with you.

    What to do for fun

    Snowflex (snowboarding, skiing, tubing), basketball, swimming, working out, dollar movies, and really anything you and your friends can find to do.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining are varied but not the highest quality. Sodexo is the company that oversees all of the food services here at Liberty and they specialize more in quantity than quality. However, that's not to say that all options are bad, Doc's and Sub Connection are usually pretty good.

    Dorm Life

    I wasn't sure about moving onto a hall when I first came here, but having since done so I have loved everyday of it. The ability to simply hang out with someone that's right across or down the hall from you makes the social aspect of life here at Liberty so much easier.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty doesn't have the most challenging classes I have ever taken, but there is no wasted time here. Everything that you learn is in some way applicable to your life or your major, and you will leave this school with the core values of your major firmly set in your mind.

    Tips for prospective students

    The Reber-Thomas dining hall is sometimes hit-or-miss so some days the other dining options are the more preferable ones. Also as a new student I would recommend trying to get on the Hill since it's so close to everything on campus.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University has an excellent emphasis on spiritual life here on campus which is something that I have very much enjoyed in my time here. The student life on campus is great, there's rarely nothing to do and everyone I have met in my time here has been very welcoming and friendly. In short, Liberty is an excellent school.

    What to do for fun

    The list is too big to mention everything! Ice skating at the Lehay Ice Center, Indoor and several outdoor pools, the SnowFlex with snowboarding, skiing, and snow tubing all year around (and FREE LESSONS!), an equestrian center with FREE riding lessons and trail rides, a skate park....and the list goes on.

    Food and Dining

    I hate cafeteria food, but the food at the ROT is AMAZING!

    Dorm Life

    Most of the dorms at Liberty are extremely nice, mostly East and the new dorms being built, The Commons. The Annex is also great, considering it's a hotel room changed into a dorm so there's a good amount of space in general, but less closet space. The other dorms are great too, but have community bathrooms and less space.

    Academic Rigor

    I'm a biology/pre-med major, and considering I transferred from UK to Liberty, I can tell a huge difference in the difficulty of the curriculum. Liberty is keeping up with some of the best research schools in the country on their cutting edge technology, and there are so many opportunities to delve deeper into research at every corner.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come visit the campus if you are considering attending, or even if you think you wouldn't like it. Visiting will most likely change your mind, and you'll want to be next on the enrollment bus! The atmosphere of this place is just incredible. Everyone is friendly and outgoing for the most part, professors are sincere about wanting to get to know their students on a personal level and being there to help whenever needed (academically or spiritually), and the food is great!

    In three sentences

    Liberty is the perfect atmosphere for those who are serious about learning and being successful, while nearly completely avoiding the typical party scene in college. The professors genuinely care about you as a student, not just in your studies but also in your spiritual life. People are very outgoing, and if you don't make friends at Liberty, you have to be hiding under a rock somewhere!

    Students who want to get an education in a Christian setting. Although I feel their education lacks compared to other schools but if you want that Christian setting this is a great school.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for prospective students would to be to consider their Online program instead of being a residential student because it is so much more economical and gives your schedule incredible flexibility if you have other obligations such as family, a job, or what have you. If you do have the money to go to Liberty as a residential student then by all means go there if you so please, however if you have the money to go to Liberty I would suggest using that money to go to a different school that will provide you with a better education and that will prepare you for the future.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is REALLY expensive! I think is it way overpriced for residential students, its kind of ridiculous. However they do have Liberty Online which I am currently a student of after being a residential student just got far too expensive. I wish Liberty Online had more options for degrees of study but its really not a bad Online program. Compared to other online programs Liberty is one of the least expensive but it is also fairly highly rated. Its a little annoying that the tuition keeps going up every semester but it still remains the most inexpensive of online college programs and we're in a recession so it is to be expected, right?

    Am enjoying being here

    Overall I really loved being at Liberty. I met some great people and made terrific friends and made many great memories their. The dorms are a bit lacking on main campus and I feel that they could use a good sprucing up, though the quads are fairly nice though the rooms are rather small, very close quarters, especially if you end up with a roommate you're not particularly fond of. The east campus dorms are very nice however. Liberty has a lot of things to do on campus such as open mic nights, concerts, a large gym and an indoor pool, an outdoor pool on east campus, a paintball course, trails for running/biking/etc, snowflex, a diner, etc. There is so much to do on campus, its really neat but that is probably one reason why Liberty is considered such a bubble.

    Am learning a lot

    Liberty offers many different areas of study and unique classes. I feel that they could expand and bring in some more degree programs such as anthropology or archaeology. While I feel that they do provide students with good educations I also feel that they bring God into their courses far too much. Of course this is a Christian school so that is to be expected but when I feel that I am learning more about the Bible in my statistics course, something is not right. I feel that they force the Bible into places that it does not particularly fit. People go to college to learn about many things and though students at Liberty expect to learn more about God, being at a Christian school and all, I feel they also expect to learn more about their actual courses of study as well so that they can succeed in their future endeavors and careers. I feel that Liberty also does not do a great job preparing it's students for the real world. Many consider Liberty to be a bubble and from personal experience, that is exactly what it is. Liberty does not prepare its students for the rawness and the toughness of the real world. They make their students believe that the world is all rainbows, sunshine, and praise songs. That is not the case.

    Whether you're reserved or adventurous, studious or social, Liberty has something for you. :)

    Tips for prospective students

    First of all, Liberty offers many DSSTs and CLEPs. Take advantage of that! Second, if your Webmail errs as mine did, get ahold of a HelpDesk Agent by phone. Talking to someone is much less confusing than trying to follow written directions; and an Agent can do for you what a tutorial can't. I called the HelpDesk, and within minutes, an Agent figured out my problem and fixed my account. Now it functions perfectly.

    Bang for the buck

    There are many different tools that Liberty Online offers to help students, and the advisors really want to help.

    Will enjoy being here

    The Bachelor's of Education program, into which I am accepted, is wonderful! Not only is it completely online, allowing for a greater range of flexibility than other programs offer, but it also offers many classes which can be tested out of by the ICE, DSST, or CLEP!

    Will learn a lot

    There is such an amazing variety of classes, especially for a partially online college!

    Christians Rule Followers People who want to grow

    Tips for prospective students

    First, make sure you research the college and make sure you know what you are getting yourself into. Liberty isn't for everyone. When I mean research, I mean dig deep. Make sure you know the deadlines for everything especially Financial Check-in. Attend College For a Weekend before you make a final decision. It's fun and you get to learn a lot about the school. You get free stuff too! If you have already payed your confirmation deposit, you can attend for free. Read the Liberty Way before you come because they do enforce rules. You get used to them but if you don't know about them before hand, you could get in some serious trouble.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is a bit on the pricey side but it's a good investment. The academics are top notch. There are a couple of things that I would not want to pay so much for though. The parking situation here is a little crappy because there are so many students. The food is okay but it could be better. And the bus system is very unreliable. You never know when it will show up at the bus stop or sometimes it won't even stop!

    Am enjoying being here

    Liberty is great. God put me here and I am so thankful for it. Most of the students are really nice and caring. Yes, there are some rude people but you find that everywhere. We have a lot of fun too! The football games are just plain epic. Even if you don't like the game, attend one. I attended my first football game three weeks ago and had a blast. The school spirit is amazing! Even when we lose, we still have tons of fun.

    Am learning a lot

    I have honestly learned more in the month and a half I have been at Liberty than I did in four years of high school. Every day, I learn something new and interesting. The Professors are so passionate about what they teach. And even though a lot of classes are huge, they really care about the students. You can go up to the Professor before class and they will actually listen. I feel like I can go to my professors about anything. I love how we also pray before every class. Some of my professors even find Bible verses related to the class. It's pretty awesome.

    Although it is a bit pricey for a college when you look at the fact that it is both christian and private it is a great price. They offer a ton of merit scholarships and service opportunities to make the college experience more tolerable.

    I've never heard a bad thing about Liberty, everything I've seen and experienced has been positive it is a very opening and place. Everyone is willing to meet and become acquainted with everyone else and it goes to show that Christ lives through these people

    Liberty (especially the online program) is best for studnets who excel in reading and writing. Becuase you dont attend lectures, most of the student's intake is from reading. And most homework involves extensive writing.

    Bang for the buck

    Its a little expensive. But for a private Christian college, really its not that bad. For what you get out of the classes, and the credible degree you get... its really not bad.

    I will be doing their online program, but I am expecting I will enjoy my studies. My one disappointment is they dont have art related classes online. But besides that, everything is good!

    I watched my older sis all the way through her degree at Liberty. I'm getting a different major than her, but I am looking at great quality classes. She learned a lot. And from what I've seen of the homework and stuff, you have to learn your stuff and show you know it.

Want to meet people from all over the country and world. We have all sorts of majors. If the above is something appealing and we have your major, check us out!

    Tips for prospective students

    Be ready for ANYTHING-your life will be changed. There are rules, but they're really not that bad. It actually preps you for the career world, where there is a dress code. It's big, but don't let it scare you. You make awesome friends within a couple of weeks and pretty soon, you have a group you like to hang out with.

    Bang for the buck

    For a private school, this is a reasonable price. You get the academic quality of a small private school plus the big state school feel with D1 athletics and fun student activities (most of which are free or under $5). It's the best of both worlds!

    Am enjoying being here

    This place rocks! The people are here are great and genuinely interested in what concerns you, students and professors alike. There are people on campus who pray for you by name everyday. You are not a number in this large school, where it would be very easy to be a number. People know who you are as a person and care about you genuinely. They want God's best for you.

    Am learning a lot

    I have learned so much since coming to LU. Because this is a liberal arts school, you are required to dabble in a little bit of everything-science, math, history, English, etc. However, because this is a CHRISTIAN liberal arts school, we also are required to dabble in learning theological things-Bible survey courses, philosophy, theology, etc. It is more of a classical way of learning and it makes you grow academically and personally. I'm actually using the stuff I've learned here in conversations with friends.

    The community is great. On a daily basis you see students helping each other or show proper manners to each other. They are very modest.

    All the classes given are by professors that are interested in my well-being. The classes are also quite extensive and very informative.

    Liberty is great for all types of students. I don't know of a subject Liberty doesn't have. Liberty has an awesome education program as well as Bible and music. But Liberty is for anyone and everyone. If you can't afford to live on campus you can take online classes which are just as good as being in class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Going to Liberty is a great experience for you. If you're going to Liberty and you and your family don't have a lot of money my suggestion would be to apply for as many scholarships as possible. Also once you get there try to get an on campus job right away, it will be worth it. And also don't let going out and spending a lot of money be one of the main things you do. You will suffer from it later on in the future. Other than that focus on school work and enjoy these years cause they don't last forever.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is a little bit on the expensive side. But I feel that once you are there and you are giving it your all and really trying your best in all your classes while having a fun time, its worth it. Liberty also has an office dedicated to just scholarships and helping the students pay for college. There main priority is to help you further your education.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am enjoying being at Liberty. I have found a place where i'm not just another person but I actually have a face and a name. The people are so friendly and I have found some awesome friends that I know that I will have for life. Along with academics there is so much more to do and It's nice to have something going on so when you're not studying you can hang out with friends at some fun place on campus.

    Am learning a lot

    Every day that I am at Liberty University I learn something. Whether it's in the classroom or in hall meeting or in convocation. When it was time for me to choose a college I was torn between Liberty or a community college. I'm so glad I choose Liberty. I'm hoping that with the help of scholarships and friends and family that I will be able to continue my learning here at Liberty.

    Bang for the buck

    for a private school, the cost of attending lu as a residential student is well within reason. online tuition rate is even lower, so that is definitely worth the money. in addition, students can transfer in up to 90 credits through college credit, clep, dsst, or other cbe tests which are a great way to save even more money. overall, this school can be very affordable and offers a lot for the cost.

    What to do for fun

    there's a ton to do if you're into sports or music. many students also get involved in their outstanding drama productions. with a campus that large, there are numerous student organizations that one can join or even start.

    Food and Dining

    personally, i found the food to be lacking and the dining situation to be awkward. especially so, given the large student body. i think the next thing liberty university should look to upgrade is their cafeteria and caterers, and perhaps look to add more eating venues.

    Dorm Life

    i cannot speak from personal experience, but i do know they try very hard to incorporate strong communities into the dorm life. i stayed in the apartments while on campus and was pleasantly surprised by the new wood floors, comfortable living arrangement, and nicely constructed buildings.

    there are some professors that stand out for being especially rigorous, but for the most part, my classes with lu have been easy. note: i am an online student; residential students may experience something different. however, if you are a fairly good writer, you should have no problem receiving a's in your classes - online at least.

    Tips for prospective students

    find your little niche. as a large university, it can be easy to get lost in the crowd if you don't make a place for yourself. as an online student, i've found it easy to connect with others and build solid working relationships while in the class.

    liberty university is a private school which means that tuition is rather expensive, but this school is worth every penny that is spent on it. the facilities at the school are exceptional, with new construction going on all the time. liberty is currently working on building a brand new library, along with tearing down old dorms and replacing them all within the nest few years. the professors are some of the most respecting in the teaching community, many are experts in their field also have been on shows on the history channel and have written many books. at convocation the speakers that come are for the most part exceptional, in my time here i have heard almost every single one of the gop nominees for 2012 speak, as well as other important people from across the world.

    What to do for fun

    there are several things to do for fun. there are several coffee shops with live music around the city of lynchburg all within five minutes of campus. there are plenty of hiking trails on and off campus that can be done as a day long adventure. we have the only snow-less ski and snowboarding slope called snowflex in all of north america which is a lot of fun to go on, you can take lessons or goof around. there is also a huge tubing slope at the snowflex. we also have our own skate park that only students can use which was just built this year. liberty is working towards adding additional places that students will be able to use for fun.

    there are several on campus sites to eat at, we have the reber thomas dining hall, sub-connection, doc's diner and the bistro. all of these places accept meal swipes that are apart of your meal plan that you select. we also have locations that accept what are called meal points which is money to be spent at the hanger, or the keyhole, this too is also incorporated into the meal plan that you select. the last part of the meal plans is what is called flames cash, this is a set amount of money included into your semester meal plan and allows you to spend this money at several off campus locations such as buffalo wild wings, and other restaurants.

    Dorm Life

    dorm life is usually always excited, with close to seventy people on a hall it is not always quiet. dorms are not coed dorms there are only dorms for guys and girls for dorms. only once a semester do they have open dorms when guys can go on girls halls and girls are allowed on guys dorms. there are resident adviser's on every hall along with two spiritual life director's and seven prayer leaders. remember this is a christian based school, so the halls are tailored to promote a christian life style.

    i had absolutely no complaints about the dining hall. there were endless choices. but, college food is college food!

    Dorm Life

    although i'm not a residential student, i attended one of the cfaw weekends and stayed in the dorms. the dorms themselves are comparable to almost any other dorm. the rooms are fairly small but they are incredibly clean!

    Academic Rigor

    the online classes for liberty university are divided into sub-terms, which means that most classes are split from sixteen-week terms into eight-week terms. this can sometimes make the academics difficult if you allow yourself to get too far behind!

    Tips for prospective students

    i would highly recommend making the effort to visit the campus. one of the absolute best times to visit would be during a cfaw weekend. the campus is jammed pack with activities and the university grants cfaw students unlimited access to the campus. you are able to attend a class, attend admissions and financial aid seminars (among others!), stay in the dorms with actual students and eat in the dining hall. cfaw students also attend one of the convocation services required of all liberty students, and go ice-skating or tubing at the snowflex center! not only that, but you get to take in the absolutely gorgeous views of the campus!

    In three sentences

    my experience with liberty university online has been nothing but positive. the instructors send encouraging weekly emails and reminders that make going to school online as real and easy as possible. liberty university even offers free 24/7 tutoring for online students--you can't go wrong!

    the students activities are numerous. from movie nights with free popcorn to $10 concerts, sports games, intramural teams to join, races, treasure hunts, seminars, bible studies, free snowboarding/skiing/tubing, hikes, etc., there are so many things to do!

    Food and Dining

    the rot (the building used to be a marriott) is a buffet-style cafeteria and we can eat whatever we want (as many colleges have). but there are some places around campus like subway that are really good. you cannot go hungry here, there is always something for everyone.

    Dorm Life

    i seriously love the dorm life. my roommates are so nice, and so are my hall-mates. instead of sororities and fraternities, we have brother and sister dorms that we hang out with and do organized stuff with. it's fun.

    Academic Rigor

    attendance is kinda a big thing here. being on time and present helps your grade immensely. the teachers care about you actually learning the material in class and doing all the work, not just showing up to take the final and be done. they want to help you succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    come here with an open-mind and an open-heart. god is doing amazing things here and if you will let him, he will work in you. be ready to have a great time while going to school.

    Dorm Life

    there is the option of dorm life where you are surrounded by other christian people. the other option is online education, where you have the freedom of working at the same time of getting your degree.

    Academic Rigor

    academically, this college is the best in my opinion. they make sure you are getting top quality education that will help you in the future. the programs are designed in a way to help you succeed, and work hard for what you are pursuing. there is no room for slacking off, you only get out of it what you put into it.

    Tips for prospective students

    always study, and never get behind. once you get behind then it makes it that much harder to get ahead. also, never be afraid to ask questions, the teachers are there to help you and the staff is there if there is ever a problem. lastly, never give up, aim for what your goal is in life, and do not let anyone discourage you. when the going gets tough, the tough gets going!

    In three sentences

    liberty university is a wonderful christian college, that has highly qualified teachers and staff to help students achieve their academic goals. the college has a great staff, and 24/7 tech support if ever needed. the best fact is, it is a christian based education where you can meet other christians, and learn in a godly environment.

    Campus Safety

    the liberty university police department is highly trained and certified to patrol the campus. the officers come from various parts of the country and have their own unique experiences and stories.

    Greek Life

    there is relatively little greek life on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    there are a multitude of activities and clubs in which to get involved. there is a jiu-jitsu club, sports clubs, sports teams and ministry teams for which students can audition. in addition, a new organization called band of leaders that was created in the fall of 2010 is becoming popular on campus. our mission is to impact liberty university and the world by creating god-made leaders who can share christ on campus, with the lynchburg community, and beyond.

    What to do for fun

    students go to snowflew, the ski and snowboard resort at the top of liberty mountain; there is a movie theater not too far from campus. in addition, students exercise in the tilley student center's gym; play video games; watch movies; and hang out with friends.

    Food and Dining

    the food is good here. it is not like ruby tuesday or olive garden but it is better than eating ramen noodles every day. the main campus dining hall, affectionately called the rot has various sections from which students can choose to eat. there is a salad bar, charbroiled (hamburgers and hot dogs) section, southwest (burritos and tacos); pizzeria (various types of pizzas and pasta); a balanced section (for the health conscious and gluten-free students); a main dish (somewhat tasty homestyle cooking); an asian wok (fried rice, egg roll, etc.); a dessert section and drink stations. there a number of restaurants on and around campus to choose from.

    Dorm Life

    dorm life is great if one chooses to make it wonderful. roommates come from all parts of the world and bring their cultural differences with them. living with a roommate allows a student to see things in his or her life that may not have been noticeable before. furthermore, the christian environment in the dorms allows for mentoring, accountability, discipleship, and spiritual growth.

    Academic Rigor

    the classes are structured so that students will truly study and learn the material and not regurgitate it on a quiz or test. the information that students learn today will shape their lives not only in their careers but also in their witnessing to others about christ.

    Tips for prospective students

    prospective students need to keep christ first in all aspects of their lives. students also need to focus on their studies and take their education seriously. do not attempt to jump into a relationship immediately because this can lead to stress, chaos and broken hearts; in turn, these factors may lead to poor academic performance.

    In three sentences

    liberty university is a school with an excellent christian foundation that teaches young men and young ladies how to make an impact for christ in their chosen professions. while not everyone attends liberty with a christian mindset, the academics are excellent and provide a gateway to many other opportunities. the school has an array of majors and minors to choose from and many students, if not most, will find satisfaction in their careers.

    liberty is a private school and it is not the cheapest place to go but it is also not the most expensive. in my opinion liberty is a little over priced but you get a lot for your money.

    What to do for fun

    there is plenty to do for fun, there is always student actives going on, such as concerts, raves, competitions, movie nights.. etc. also there is indoor and outdoor field/courts where you can play for fun or on intramural teams.

    Food and Dining

    the food is not bad but it could be better. the great part about the food system is that you have flash cash which is accepted at many restaurants close to campus. so with your meal plan you are able to go out to eat without spending anymore money.

    Dorm Life

    dorm life can be very fun and entertaining but also a little crazy. i am not sure what your roommate will be like but for the most part everyone here is fairly normal but there are exceptions to the rule. you will be up late most nights because of different things going on but when you look back on this time, you will remember the good parts and forget the bad.

    Academic Rigor

    academics are liberty are a good mix. you have plenty of hard classes that you will face but from what i have experienced if you stay on task and put effort into your classes you will be able to make a b if not an a. it all depends on how much effort you put into your classes and if you take things seriously. i am really learning a lot in my studies and i plan to even study abroad this coming semester in europe.

    Tips for prospective students

    this campus is an amazing place to be because it not only helps you grow in academics but also in your life. this is a christian university so things are different here than most other universities (which is not a bad thing). so if you are looking to party every weekend you will not be in luck here. at liberty you can make it the best time of your life or the worst. it all depends on you.

    In three sentences

    liberty is an amazing place to go to school. the campus is huge and always something going on, so you will never be bored. the atmosphere is something you will have to experience for yourself and being a the largest christian university in the world, we have well known people from around the world come speak to us three time a week.

    What to do for fun

    One of the big fun things to do on campus is Snow Flex. Snow flex is a year round snowboard/ski slope built on Liberty mountain. Sports are also really big on campus with a plethora of sporting events happening every weekend. Ice skating is also free to students at the Lahaye ice center during public skates, and if that doesn't float your boat you can always head over to the student union to play pool or ping-pong or just hang out with friends and enjoy some starbucks coffee.

    Food and Dining

    The University has a variety of different meal options for students living on campus. The main dining hall is buffet style with a variety of different types of food for students including burgers, pizza, a main dish, sandwiches, mexican and chinese. There is also a sub shop on campus which is better than subway any day of the week.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life on campus is fantastic. Every dorm has it's own unique sense of community that is very welcoming to all new students. There are also different types of dorms around campus that are suitable for everyone. Main campus dorm rooms have about 3 people to a room on a hall of about 70-80 students. East campus dorms are more like apartments. East dorm has about 8 people total, but multiple rooms that house 2-3 people. They also have a sitting/ living area with a small kitchen and washer and dryer.

    Academic Rigor

    I have found that the classes here are very rigorous. Every teacher wants to be very thorough and helpful to every student. The teachers also make it a point to be available to the students whenever they are needed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come down for college for a weekend. Throughout the year there are various weekends when they open the campus to prospective students. From thursday-sunday you can sleep in a dorm, go to classes, and eat in the dining hall with the rest of the students. This definitely helps to gain an idea on what college life is like no matter where you go.

    In three sentences

    Liberty is a fantastic school, especially if you want good biblically sound teaching. The university itself is continuing to grow almost daily, which means there are new degrees and classes being opened all the time. While the school strives for academic excellence, it also strives to be a strictly Christian University and keep all of its teachings biblical and applicable to the real world.

    Campus Safety

    The school is located in Lynchburg, Virginia. The location is beautiful and because it is Christian- based, the likeliness for harm to occur is very slim.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are 20 Division I Teams and at this school there is club and activity for everyone. No one is isolated.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    At the school, they do prayers, but I do not believe that this unusual. If you are a Christian, this is a daily ritual that you are fond of at home.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty University was the best choice that I could have made. It is truly a good school and lives up and beyond expectations.

    What to do for fun

    Nearly every major offers an academic organization, and the opportunities to volunteer, join a club or get involved with social causes are numerous. You’ll stay busy, but make sure to schedule some time to unwind. Hit a few of the campus hot spots such as the LaHaye Student Union for a workout or the new Tilley Student Center for a cup of coffee and some socializing between classes. Campus Recreation keeps students moving with a variety of recreational activities. From paintball to horseback riding, whitewater rafting trips and waterskiing to chess and video game tournaments, Campus Recreation offers something for everyone.

    Food and Dining

    The food is absolutely delicious. You have to be careful because there is so much, it is hard to watch what you eat and stay on diet because everything is so tempting. But they do have salad bars and healthy varieties. The school has a good balance of healthy and not so healthy foods.

    Dorm Life

    Everyone is very nice and it is easy to get along with everyone. There are no problems that I know of that occur within the dorm because of the fact that at Liberty everyone is family.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty University offers hands-on learning, flexible study options and advanced academic facilities like the Guillermin Library and Integrated Learning Resource Center.Once you’re in the classroom, you can have peace of mind about your professors. Also, Liberty University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award degrees at the associate, baccalaureate, master’s, education specialist and doctorate levels.

    Tips for prospective students

    Manage your time wisely. Time in college is very important and it is important that you are very organized. Do not lose faith in God & do not lose faith in yourself. If you work hard, everything else will fall into place.

    In three sentences

    It is has a great all- around environment.

    Campus Safety

    Although I am a online student at Liberty I have experience the dorm life as a undergraduate at Nyack College. The campus never had any safety issues you I attended besides weather alerts because it snowed alot during the winter. Students had access to text or emails so if there were an emergency students would know about it. about any oncerns on campus which made students feel much

    Clubs and Activities

    When I attended Nyack College I played on the Women's Basketball team and that was one of the best experiences of my life. We won a conference championship and the school went to the NCAA tournament for the first time. Basketball ket me busy. My normal day was going to class, lunch, weight room, class, dinner, practice, then back to my dorm.

    Great for these types of students

    Nyack College is great for athletes and christians. If you are looking to build a great relationship with God then attend a christian college like Nyack and Liberty.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I cant really think of any unusual tradition at Nyack College. However Nyack did have a grave site on campus of the man who create the school which I thought was unusual. Nyack also always had deers running around campus. Im a city girl so I never seen so many deers. I also seen ground hogs for the first time.

    Bang for the buck

    I think the college life is a great experience to gain life time friendships and memories. I have gainto some great friendships in college and I know you will to. Even to this day I can pick up my phone and talk to my teammates or coach about any issues I have and they are there to listen.

    What to do for fun

    For fun I watch movies with my teammates, went to the mall, played basketball and went to student events.

    Food and Dining

    Food and dining wasnt so bad at Nyack College. The only thing that I didnt like was the times. Dinner started at 5:00pm and the diner closed at 6:00pm so if you didnt make it by 6:00pm you would have to eat whatever was in your room or call for take out.

    Dorm Life

    My first experience in a dorm wasnt so bad. I had a clean roommate which is a plus. The only thing I had to get use to was having to go outside my room to get to the bathroom to shower. So if you have the opportunity to get a bathroom is your room I say go for it. And I wouldnt get a single. You always need someone to talk to because your away from home so get a roommate. If you and that person dont get along you can always get a new one.

    Tips for prospective students

    Before attending any school always visit the campus . Also compare your choices with other school for example the tuition, graduation rate and the dorms.

    In three sentences

    I think Liberty University is a great school. After during some research about online classes Liberty has everything I was looking for. Tuition is not that bad and the online classes are very convenient for students.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is safe. They have their own police department that is always around. Usually it is pretty quiet, except for maybe the occasional prankster.

    Greek Life

    No Greek life...no alcohol, drugs, or tobacco on campus and no girls in guys' dorms or guys in girls' dorms.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is honestly a group for almost every type of activity. And if there is not a group for whatever activity you want, it is not that difficult to start one.

    Great for these types of students

    Liberty is great for Christian students. It is a Christian university and you do have to take some Bible/Theology classes, but they are worth it.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is fairly expensive...around $30,000. But they give almost everybody some kind of financial aid, so you can cut the cost almost in half. Considering that, Liberty is worth the cost. There are tons of people around and so much things to do that you can really love your college experience here.

    What to do for fun

    Liberty owns tons of land with trails running through most of it, so it is great if you like to hike or bike. There are also different places nearby that are great for hiking and camping. The campus is near the James River, and also Smith Mountain Lake is within an hour's drive. There is a minor league baseball team that is fun to watch. Liberty owns a discount movie theater right beside campus that is great for students. The snowflex is fun for skiers and snowboarders, and the student center has an indoor soccer field, several basketball courts, exercise rooms, and a pool. Not to mention, Liberty almost always has some sport going on. Football, basketball, and baseball are really fun to watch. There is almost always something to do, especially if you have a car (which even freshmen can at LU).

    Food and Dining

    The food at the dining hall is not amazing, but it is ok. There are always hotdogs and hamburgers, pizza and pasta, Chinese and Southwestern sections, and another main dish. There is also a sub place, a bistro where you can get pretty good sandwiches, and a diner that serves good food.

    Dorm Life

    There are 3 people to a room and 60-70 people on each floor, so there are plenty of opportunities to make friends. Dorm life can be great, as long as you like your roommates and the people in the room beside you do not play musical instruments.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty is very dedicated to academic excellence. Most of the professors are awesome and there are some really interesting classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not get tricked into taking a Humanities class unless you actually enjoy talking about old art.

    In three sentences

    Liberty is dedicated to giving its students the best education possible. It is also dedicated to teaching its students about God and emphasizes Jesus in everything. If you are wanting to party or are not a religious person, you may not enjoy Liberty.

    Campus Safety

    Although I am an online student, I have never hear of any unsafe activities that occurs at Liberty, but I would advise one who seeks to be on campus to call Liberty and ask questions about this.

    Clubs and Activities

    I cannot say since I am not on campus. I know that Liberty always keeps you in the know of activities around campus and clubs as well as sports and other activities. I rated this 5 starts since I do keep tabs on what activities are going on at Liberty through the website.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who are looking for a greater walk with God would be a great fit for Liberty. The academic aspects of classes are based on faith and hope. Students will earn a great deal of knowledge about God as well as the fundamentals of each subject.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I do not attend Liberty's traditional classroom. I am an online student, so I cannot say anything about what goes on at campus life. But one can call Liberty and ask questions!

    Bang for the buck

    I will have earned my bachelor's in Science and Education this summer (2012). The financial rates are competitive with other schools and in some cases cheaper. My loans were well worth the education that I received. And I will earn my Master's through Liberty and continue on to achieve my goal in teaching. I believe that no matter the prices offered through Liberty or other schools, your career plans are priceless as you will gain the knowledge needed to gain a great job or career in your studies.

    What to do for fun

    Liberty offers many activities such fitness, sports, etc...I am sure that being on campus there are many fun activities that one can partake in as a group or alone. I see what is happening at liberty through their website. It is nice to know that if I am interested in any activities taking place, I can go even though I live four hours away. Concerts in my opinion would be a great travel vacation for me to attend.

    Food and Dining

    Again, I am an online student. I would recommend researching this area as well.

    Dorm Life

    Since I am an online student, I could not tell you about the dorm life. I am sure that one can research this information through Liberty University's website to gain more information.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty offers competitive academics. Liberty's classes are challenging but most people thinking about going to school knows of the challenges. No school is easy but if one works hard and has the commitment to succeed then the end result is priceless! The professors at Liberty go above and beyond to make sure that you comprehend the work that is required and are always there and willing to help you. There are also tutors in place in every subject to help as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Liberty University cares for all of their students and offers support in many areas. I always have access to academic advisers and professors anytime I have questions or need help registering for the proper classes. Since Liberty is a Christian based school, I feel that I am in good hands and can freely to talk about my religion with support groups that I use online. The best part is you can earn your degree online and if one plans to be on campus then I am sure that you will have that physical support as well! All in all, Liberty will support every avenue to see that you succeed in your journey.

    In three sentences

    I chose Liberty University due tho the fact that it is Christian based. I love that I can be an online student and receive the support that I need anytime. Liberty's academics are reasonable and concise.

    None of the freshman classes are super hard, but you will need to make sure you put effort into assignments because passing isn't going to be easy.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty provides a world class education for the cost of half the price it takes to attend any other school in the world. While the cost can seem daunting at first, you will find that in reality, the financial aid provided by the school itself is quite incredible.

    Fun is everywhere you look at Liberty. There are sports events almost every week that are always open to students to watch or participate in. There is an enormous gym with everything you could imagine. There are also trails, open mic nights, concerts, plays, fellowship, and of course, the Snowflex.

    Food and Dining

    The food is very good for the most part. There are always different options and even if something appears unappetizing, there are always other meals available. The only downside is that, like anything, eating at the same place can get old so mix it up whenever you can.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is incredible! The people on your hall come from all over the country and may vary in personality, but they are all very cool. In your dorms you will build relationships and friendships that will last for years if not lifetimes. Additionally, the rooms and facilities are all very clean, well kept, and functioning.

    I attend campus from my living room comfortable in my home. I feel pretty safe and secure learning from my own house. It is safe at my house, a lot safer than on a campus.

    Greek Life

    I don't have any idea what the Greek Life is like at Liberty University. I go to the online portion of the school and nothing like Greek Life is offered or even close to the subject of any sorority.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are quite a few clubs and activities, but unfortunatly, they do not offer any clubs or barely any activities for online students.

    Great for these types of students

    I think the people that would benefit more from this program are people who are looking into going into some type of ministry program.

    Im not sure, I haven't ever been on the campus at Liberty University.

    I feel like I am spending too much money on a college that doesn't help it's students succeed. It is very disappointing, considering I was told this was a Christian college, I was assuming I would be able to share my beliefs with others but I haven't had the chance yet.

    What to do for fun

    I check out the online ministries that Liberty University offers. They are very inspiring and informative. I wish they would offer more online activities.

    Food and Dining

    This actually doesn't pertain to me again because I go to the online portion of Liberty University.

    So far, the academic rigor seems to be very challenging and fast paced. I would like the college but I seem to be very lost as no one really explained the whole online thing to me.

    Tips for prospective students

    This college seems like it functions better at its hands-on traditional college. The online section of the college is very vague and not put together too well. My biggest tip for a prospective student: find another college or go to Liberty University on their campus.

    Great for these types of students

    I would say Christian's. They do not force their religious beliefs on anyone and you do not have to be Christian to attend this university. I just feel that with how the classes are formed around a Christian view and how the majority of the activities that I see are Christian that a non Christian might be uncomfortable here.

    Bang for the buck

    I have been using the Federal Pell Grant for my education, but I am losing that this year. With a family of six and a very low income, I am willing to find a way to pay for my education at Liberty versus going any where else. This is how much I love this University!

    What to do for fun

    I can't rate this one as I am an online student, but I see where they are always have concerts, movies, and other programs.

    Food and Dining

    I can't rate this one as I am an online student.

    Dorm Life

    Academic Rigor

    The academics are great! They are at a higher level, but taught at a level where everyone can understand them. I have learned a lot more from Liberty than the other colleges that I have attended.

    Tips for prospective students

    Although I believe this is a great school, online can be hard. Liberty only offers 8 week classes, which is like taking a whole semester in 8 weeks! It is not easier because it is taught in a shorter period. It takes a lot of dedication! If you are not a motivated, independent worker, I would suggest not taking online classes, but rather finding a college near you.

    In three sentences

    I love the positive and encouraging atmosphere of Liberty University. The academics are very high, but taught at a level where everyone is able to understand them. All of the instructors that I have had have been very qualified and incredibly helpful.

    Young men and women that like structure will enjoy Liverty. Those looking for a distinctive Christian education will also find that Liberty is serious about training young man and women to be Christ followers.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I'm not sure if I know any traditions that are common to Liberty.

    Bang for the buck

    Overall Liberty is a quality education.

    What to do for fun

    Liberty offers a year round ski slope and ice skating rink; unlimited usage is included in your tutiton cost. Many students go to the local movie theatre for entertainment. Attending the sports events is always fun for those who enjoy sports. Outside of those things there isn't much else to do for fun.

    Food and Dining

    The food can stand to be improved. The options to choose from are limited and most days the same types of meals are serve daily. It isn't worth the money you pay.

    Dorm Life

    There are a lot of rules to follow in the dorms. It is requried that you meet with your hall nightly for hall meeting and prayer. In my opinion the rules make it a hassle to live in the dorm. Unfortunately, unless you are older than 21 years old it is required that you live in the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic programs offered at Liverty are vast. The professors all hold a Phd and do a fantastic job making sure they challenge their students both academically and spiritually.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking for a college experience that will allow you to come and go as you please Liberty is not for you. It is distinctively a fundmental Southern Baptist university with many rules. Chapel is held three days a week and attendance is required.

    In three sentences

    It offers a Biblically sound education. It's a small campus with a big campus feel. Students that live in on campus housing have a curfew seven days a week and if you break it you are fined.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic curriculum is challenging and provides each student to grow and learn. There is a nice size workload but can be managed the way the coursework is presented. You have plenty of help with professors, tutors, and online tutorials to assist with classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Visit Liberty.edu and see if they offer the major you're looking for. Also, if you're unable to attend the school campus see if their online programs will work for you. Make sure you meet all deadlines for registration and admissions.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a great place to attend college rather on campus or online. The staff and faculty are very friendly and concerned for each student. There are many majors to choose from and you are able to obtain your degree in a Christian environment.

    Campus Safety

    I have never felt unsafe on campus. It seems that there are always people around somewhere because the campus population is pretty large. Also, the school has a police escort system if you ever had to walk in the dark from your car. The campus also has its own special police number.

    Greek Life

    None here and it is fine by me.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are lots of varieties and everyone can find at least one club that would be of interest to them.

    Great for these types of students

    I would recommend this school to just about anyone that is looking for a change from the typical college life. This university is centered around Jesus and it shows.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We meet 3 times a week for convocation and once a year before Christmas Break we have a special convocation put on by the students that is hilarious!!!! We also have Coffee House which is similar to a talent show but way better.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition is a little pricy but it could be worse. Overall I am 100% pleased with my decision and would not want to be anywhere else.

    What to do for fun

    What you declare as your major will determine how much free time you will have. There are movie nights, skiing/snowboarding on snowflex, the gym, salsa & swing dancing, Sweet Frog, sports, and anything else that you can come up with. There are lots of options.

    Food and Dining

    The food was average. I seemed to always be able to find something new or different to eat. The salad bar was always a good choice but eating anything for 9 months straight can start to get old.

    Dorm Life

    This is the best possible environment I could have lived in. It was a relief to not have to worry about alcohol or boys in the girl's dorms. I met great friends, I loved my prayer leader, and the RA's were always very friendly and helpful.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic workload is challenging but not impossible. I recommend to study daily for classes and do not cram!

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to be challenged academically and spiritually. Get involved, study hard, and enjoy college!

    In three sentences

    Choosing Liberty University is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. At this college I am able to get my degree while pursuing my relationship with Jesus Christ. The campus is warm, welcoming, and it is my second home.

    Campus Safety

    Liberty University Police are always driving around and the emergency phone number is plastered all around campus. The campus is well lit as well.

    Bang for the buck

    I personally feel like housing costs are a little pricey, but besides that I do believe I am getting what I pay for.

    What to do for fun

    Snowflex Hanging out at the dorms Going to games Doing some kind of ministry Intramural sports

    Food and Dining

    There are plenty of food options: the dining hall, SubConnection, Bistro, Doc's Diner, and many others. In additions, many restraunts off campus take flames cash which comes with being an on-campus student.

    Dorm Life

    Because their is no fraternities or sororities, you hang out with the people on your dorm constantly. On top of that you have a brother dorm and sometimes a sister dorm. Liberty University set up this system to allow you to meet new people and create friendships.

    Academic Rigor

    Most professors have their doctorate in their field of teaching or working towards it. They are willing to help and answer your questions as long as you put in the effort. There is an attendance policy for Liberty to ensure you will get the most out of your college experience.

    Tips for prospective students

    There are a lot of rules at Liberty known as The Liberty Way, but there is a reason for each rule. The rules provide a professional environment and try to keep both men and women accountable for their words and actions. The professors, RAs, and other staff really care about you as a person and student.

    Liberty University is a very conservative school compared to most universities. It is a Christian university, but it's academics and professors are spectacular and challenging. I love attending Liberty, it has taught me Biblical morals and challenged me with the academic rigor.

    Liberty is incredibly safe! We have a set curfew and cameras across campus as well as mandatory swipe cards when checking into various places.

    Greek Life

    Liberty does not allow Greek Life, however our dorm life mirrors such.

    Clubs and Activities

    We have an entire website page dedicated for clubs and activities, just search it in the search bar on Liberty.edu. There is an outlet for every individual.

    Great for these types of students

    Students looking to grow in their faith will prosper at Liberty beyond what they expect.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The snowflex, volleyball courts, intramural fields, and Tilley are only a few of our hot spot on campus locations. As far as traditions, well they are limitless. Liberty students have been bridge jumping, painting the spirit rock, and visiting each others windows for years. My favorite custom LU tradition is window dating. Due to our strict rules, the opposite sex cannot enter the a dorm room. Liberty has founded a term coined window dating in which friends or boyfriend/girlfrieds will visit outside windows and hang out with one another. It is quite charming and cannot go unnoticed if someone is visiting at night.

    Bang for the buck

    With the academics, spiritual life, and social life on campus there is no doubt in my mind that Liberty deserves each cent that they obtain from me.

    What to do for fun

    With the assigned brother and sister dorms, activities are constantly being planned to participate in with one another. Ultimate frisbee, water wars, and themed joint hall meetings are just a few! We also offer the Tilley Student Union which houses a game room, sub shop, and coffee bar. The Tilley hosts open mic nights and many campus events. We have the snowflex skiing and snowboarding mountain which is free to all students as well as MANY other on campus attractions.

    Food and Dining

    The dining hall is not that great, but Liberty offers many other meal options. We have a diner, a few sub places, and many other small meal kiosks.

    Dorm Life

    Liberty is the world's largest Christian university as well as the the largest private nonprofit university. Liberty issues brother and sister dorms to each hall to build an instant unity and friend base. The leadership system on the hall makes sure that you are constantly being prayed for and cared about. My dorm experience is my favorite part about attending Liberty.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty is an accredited institution. We have some easy classes, but for the most part you are going to have to earn your grades, especially in the upper level courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a visit! Liberty look fancy and impressive from statistics and facts, but honestly you won't understand what an amazing opportunity you have until you walk around campus. The people are incredibly kind, the academics are challenging, and the life you can create for yourself there is beyond what you can imagine.

    In three sentences

    Liberty has not only given me an environment where I am confident in my academics, it has offered me a welcoming home and family. I am confident that each and every instructor on my campus will personally stay after classes, email me, and go to any means possible to help me in my studies. The campus itself offers many different social opportunities and hubs which are greatly appreciated by each student.

    Liberty provides many food and dinning options to its students. The cafeteria is a buffet. You can find almost anything in there from Chinese, pizza, pasta, vegetarian, to burgers and fries. In addition to this Liberty has sub connection, meals at north, a coffee shop, and a bistro. Many restaurants around Liberty like T.G.I.F. except Flames cash so if you do want to eat off campus you are able to!

    Liberty University is very accommodating for its students. LU has many different majors and minors to offer and if one is unable to find exactly what he or she wants, Liberty provides the option for its students to create a major.

    While it takes discipline and being a self-starter to take online classes, the classes are straightforward. Teachers provide a lecture by a PowerPoint presentation where the student can review at any time.

    Campus Safety

    If living on campus, it is really hard to even find drugs or alcohol present especially since both of these substances are not allowed here. On campus usage may result in expulsion yet like with any school, people do engage in these activities. In general, Liberty University is a safe, clean and happy campus. There are enforced rules, a dress code, a curfew but these are there primarily to teach you and not to harm you.

    Greek Life

    Liberty does not offer Greek life. Most of the activities of these organizations are against the school's principles. However there is a great community here without fraternities or sororities, many clubs, activities, intramural sport teams and many other ways to get involved

    Clubs and Activities

    Liberty is a Division I University in almost all of it's sports, even boasting a DI Girl's Lacrosse team, which is often rare. There is no cable and poor Internet service and there are some silly rules like not watching anything above PG-13 but all in all, the campus is nice, full of friendly and active people on fire for Christ! Campus transportation is great, and since LU has one huge academic building where most classes are held it's not as stressful to make it to class on time. The school invites inspirational speakers including business owners, famous pastors, presidential candidates, and artists to speak regularly. You are required to attend prayer groups and fellowship with Prayer Leaders, Spiritual Life Directors, and personal bible study is encouraged. I encourage anyone seeking to make a difference towards a Christian worldview to attend Liberty.

    Great for these types of students

    This is one of the best campus's for students who are Christian that are serious about growing in their faith and enjoying the company of those with similar veiw points! It is nice because it is still a large school so you are able to have an exciting college experience that gives you the opportunity to build friendships and connections that will

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There are a few traditions on our campus, some are widely known while others are specific for each major. Our mascot is an eagle and we are the Liberty Flames, the eagle associated mainly with Libertyâ??s athletics and also reflects the Universityâ??s strong patriotic posture. There is also a ceremonial mace that is carried or used during official events such as graduation. One of our more lighthearted traditions is our beloved Alma Mater, â??Champions, Arise!â?? by John Hugo whose last line embodies our purpose: Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty!

    Bang for the buck

    As a private institution, Liberty University is more expensive than a state sponsored college. However, I do believe you pay for what you get and attending Liberty University is such a joy compared to the other public school I had attended. That is why I believe it is worth the extra money. And besides, there are ways to work with the Financial department and to earn scholarships that might make your ability to attend this university more easier.

    What to do for fun

    Lynchburg has many fun activities on and off campus! We are the only school with a giant Snowflex, or a constructed mountain that you can ski or snowboard on all throughout the year! There are hiking trails, a few gardens, a mountain range, a pool, courts for sports, intramurals, theater, a downtown area, family owned shops in town and if you can afford it, you can even go visit some national monuments on the weekends!

    Food and Dining

    I have heard very excellent things about our catering menu and point system that allows you to select what meal plan would accomodate you the most yet I cannot say an actual opion because I haven't tasted it yet but I hope it's good!

    Dorm Life

    As mentioned above, I will be attended in the fall so I am not entirely sure how reality is yet if I can only go by photos, the campus and the dorms are beautiful and spacious! Although the dorms are separated by gender, the majority are all placed in a central location. It is nice because it maintains modesty and allows you a chance to have girl night or if you are a boy, hang out with the fellows and focus on your studies while also being able to visit in the proper hours.

    Academic Rigor

    I have not attended this University yet but as I am a college junior transferring to this school, I have researched this University's credibility thoroughly and am very pleased with the level of their curriculum and believe it would suit most student's academic pursuits.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure complete the financial check-in and class registration early once accepted so that you will have the highest chance to get a schedule you want and so that you can also qualify for a scholarship on books if you register early!

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is everything I could hope for in a school: a beautiful and safe campus with roughly twelve thousand students. The dorms are well designed and the campus offers diverse events, athletic and artistic opportunities and a variety of majors. It is the top rated and largest Christian university in the nation and is centered in Virginia, close enough to travel or stay within the quaint town of Lynchburg while attempting to accomplish your degree.

    It started as a Bible school so it's excellent for Religious study but by no means limited to that. They have an excellent legal program if your looking for a paralegal or business degree. But the choices are endless.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Liberty has a tradition of making strange invitations to speak at convocation. The last two have featured Mormon speakers, a religion they teach is a cult. I think this has more to do with the political motivations of the Chancellor of Liberty, Jerry Falwell Jr.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is the lowest cost online University in the Nation, and the instruction is of excellent quality. In many cases your studying under individuals with a lifetime of experience in that subject.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are significantly challenging, not always prohibitively so but you definitely work for your grades. The semesters are set up so you can work full time and attend full time at the same time, but this is very difficult to pull off.

    Tips for prospective students

    Secure money for books and as you register for classes take note of the provided ISBN's. Then go to Amazon, sign up for your free Prime membership and order your textbooks for significantly less. If you can get your textbooks on the Kindle this will help you with your study guides a lot.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University campus is always safe and secure with oncampus security as well as an all-Christian atmosphere!

    Great for these types of students

    Liberty University is great for those Christian students that are fed up with God being squeezed out of everything. You are free to discuss your faith in the classroom, on the campus, at any events, and even online in the virtual classrooms.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty University offers the reasonable tuition that I have found thus far. Combined with their warm and friendly Christian atmosphere, you can enjoy top quality education at truly affordable cost.

    What to do for fun

    There are always safe and enjoyable events taking place at Liberty University. However, I am an online student and do not get to enjoy them as you would.

    Food and Dining

    Since I attended online only, I have to repeat the recommendations of others and say that Liberty University offers top quality food with friendly dining atmosphere right on campus.

    Dorm Life

    I am unfamiliar personally as to how the dorm life is at Liberty University since I attended online. None-the-less, I can say with great confidence that they offer a warm, friendly, Christian atmosphere that is always safe.

    Academic Rigor

    The schedules for online courses at Liberty University are easily maintained for even the student with a full-time job, family and other responsibilities. However, you must be well-disciplined and miss class requirement deadlines.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective online students should be those that are self-motivated, dependable, and ready to learn. Fill out your FASFA and also check with your local church or with Liberty for a possible reduction in tuition and/or a fully paid tuition.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University has an online program that gives the working class an opportunity to continue their education. Their virtual classrooms supply the added interpersonal contact that conventional classrooms supply while enjoying the flexibility and convenience to attend no matter your schedule. As always, the curriculum is Christian-based yet completely current providing the best education at an affordable price.

    From Intramurals to clubs, Liberty has everything for all types of interests.

    What to do for fun

    Liberty offers hundreds of activities throughout the year for students to partake in. They always make sure that the students have options in entertainment.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining is pretty good. There are plenty of on campus options for pretty reasonable prices.

    Dorm Life

    It is great. The hall is geared for connecting and growing together in unity and forming life-long friendships.

    Academic Rigor

    They are dedicated to quality, and the rigor of the courses stresses students growth and understanding.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are not interested in an atmosphere that couples Christianity with the Education and Sports programs, I would suggest looking elsewhere for school. This is a place that challenges you to grow in so many aspects of your life. The school itself can be lifechanging if you seek for that change.

There is class participation and discussions. Assignments are also set up in a way to encourage the students with scriptures relating to psychological issues.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would recommend Liberty to anyone, as I was referred to Liberty in the same manner. As with anything else, communication with your professors, advisers and financial aid will make your journey through college life easier.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University was easy to adjust to since I haven't been enrolled anywhere since 1979. The Professors are so hands on, there's no room for failure, unless the student does'nt apply themselves. What really caught my attention with Liberty is that's it's a Christian school.

    I chose LU Online because it was more affordable and associated with a 'brick and mortar' school that I'm familiar with. The classes are set up in away which I prefer over my last online school, and they're not all incredibly easy (which I like). The professors are all really helpful, and except for the really awkward How do you fit Jesus into computer programming (and all other courses) I would say its a great school.

    Campus Safety

    This campus is very safe. I feel comfortable walking alone at night, but if you do not you can easily call one of the campus officers for an escort or take a buddy. The dorms are secure and no one is really able to break in, unless they break a window.

    Greek Life

    Unfortunately, this school has no Greek Life. The closest thing are the academic clubs that have Greek names, but in no way participate in Greek Life.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are an array of clubs and activities to participate in. There are so many it is hard to list and think of them all. There are prayer groups, sports teams, cultural clubs and so much more. There is something for everyone at this university.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is really a good fit for anyone. You do not have to be a Christian to attend this university. If a student loves to be academically challenged, then this school is a perfect fit. The math and science classes are extremely challenging, even just the basics. So it really is a good fit for someone who wants to grow more as a person in their faith or academia.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Brother and sister dorms usually get together and do group activities. Hall meetings are held every Tuesday night, and trust me they are not as bad as they sound. There is this theory called Ring by Spring which means that generally the average student will most likely be engaged by their spring semester of senior year. Convocation is held 3 times a week and it is just a time of worship and a guest speaker comes. We have had the Duggers from the TLC show 20 and counting from pastors at churches from across the country.

    Bang for the buck

    Let's just face it, college is expensive. I am not saying that Liberty is out of reach or not worth the money. I am just a struggling student like many others out there. I think that Liberty is really worth the money because you get a great education and almost everything there is state of the art, so you really are with the best.

    What to do for fun

    There is always something going on at this campus. Whether it be clubs or inter mural sports. Students can go ice skating for free at the campus ice rink, play games or watch a game at the student center, catch a movie at the dollar theater, or just start an activity of their own. The tunnel provides access to off campus and students can go to places like local restaurants to enjoy good food and just hang out. I for one was never bored a day when I was at school because I was always doing something.

    Food and Dining

    College food is really never the greatest. The main dining hall was usually a hit or miss on taste. The sub sandwiches at the campuses sub shop were delicious and as close to adequate as you could get. There was tiny market called the Key Hole that also made some pretty decent food.

    Dorm Life

    I surprisingly loved dorm life. My roommates and I got along great with each other and everyone in the hall. My hall was not far from where my classes were which was great. The rooms were small, but I was having so much fun and got so use to it that I barely even cared.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes were more difficult than others, but they were manageable. Once I figured out what my hardest class was, I studied more for that particular subject. The hardest part about that was it was difficult to balance studying for my easier classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    There is never any reason to be scared to come to Liberty University. Going to this school was one of the best decisions of my life. Finding classes is not as hard as you may think. I know living in a dorm with a bunch of people you do not know can be intimidating, but within a few days it is like they are family!

    In three sentences

    I think Liberty is a great university. The professors know what they are doing and make large classes feel smaller. Living on campus is great, there is a wonderful sense of community and everyone is always in a good mood.

    Absolutely wonderful!!

    Great for these types of students

    Christians, new believers, or just anyone that is wanting to seek the Lord Almighty with all their heart!

    Bang for the buck

    It is a non profit school and a Christian University that offers a very good education online or on campus.

    Food and Dining

    Have not ever eaten there but I hear they have great food and it is very clean.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live on campus but have heard that it is very BEAUTIFUL on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics here are a sure way to get you motivated and wanting to succeed. The professors are truly wonderful people of God and plus they are always available to you.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would definitely recommend this school; especially if you are wanting to get into the Ministry. Do not hesitate to call and ask a question; the academic advisers are more than willing to answer what you ask and even email you the information. So always be open to calling. Also, be sure to always check your Degree Completion Plan to make sure you are taking the correct classes. Plus it is nice to see just how far you have come!!! Do not be so quick to judge Liberty University with their rules and regulations because it is not all that tedious. People think being a Christian is a very stiff life to live but on the contrary it is an amazing life experience!!!!

    In three sentences

    I just love Liberty University because they go out of their way to make sure their students have a comfortable learning experience and fully understand what they are learning. I have never seen a University that goes out of their way to call you and check on how your current studies are going and they also make sure that you have everything that is needed. It is an awesome school!!

    This information can most likely be found on the Liberty University website. I am an online student( long distance learning). I am not a campus student. I will put the rating of five stars so that I won't over or under rate.

    Greek Life

    I am not sure, but those interested can check the Liberty University website.

    Clubs and Activities

    This information can be looked up on the Liberty University website. I am being asked to rate this portion so I will put the five stars not to under rate or over rate. I am not a campus student.

    Those that are looking for a good solid education.

    It is a University that is Christian Faith based and helpful and supportive.

    What to do for fun

    You can Check the Liberty University website for the student activities.

    Food and Dining

    I am an online student, but I know as a college campus they do have a place(s) to eat around campus. Again I am being asked to give a rating so I will put the five stars so that I will not under grade or over grade. I really don't know.

    Dorm Life

    I am an online student. I really wouldn't know. I am being asked to rate the dorm life so I will put the five stars to cover all five grades because I don't want to under rate or over rate. I am not a campus student.

    Academic Rigor

    The amount of coursework to me is fair, The grading system is fair and the professors are fair. Like any college you must do the required coursework to obtain the grade you want.

    Tips for prospective students

    As an online student, I am very appreciative of the flexibility of an online education because of my busy schedule. I would say to the very busy student with a full life schedule( i.e. work, family,) or if you live outside of the Virginia area, the experience of taking classes online at Liberty U. can be helpful and rewarding as long as you are willing to do the coursework.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a wonderful Christian University. I enjoy being an online student at Liberty University. The educational experience has been great for me and I am glad that I made the choice to attend Liberty University.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a Spirit Rock that anyone can graffiti, sometimes with their dorm name or sometimes with a plea for a date!

    Bang for the buck

    The combination of private school and giving away lots of scholarship money make the full cost of a year at a school of this caliber very reasonable.

    What to do for fun

    You can go hiking on the many trails nearby if you're outdoorsy, there is a movie theatre nearby that costs about $2, and many students go downtown on Friday and Saturday nights for salsa or swing dancing.

    Food and Dining

    There are several places to eat on campus, and your meal plan will cover eating off campus at certain restaurants around Lynchburg. Good options off campus, but I wish there were more options on campus.

    Dorm Life

    Living in the quads is the best of both worlds. There is the community feel of living on a hall where everyone keeps their doors open for visitors, but you still have the ability to go in your room and close the door to study. The kitchen in each common area is really awesome too!

    Academic Rigor

    As a student in the honors program, you will be constantly challenged by the academic rigor of my honors courses, but know success is within reach because of the willingness of the professors to work with you outside of class. Challenging but rewarding!

    Tips for prospective students

    Do well on your SAT's and apply early for maximum scholarships. Attend a College For A Weekend event; you will experience life at Liberty and this is how many students realize Liberty is their home! Don't worry about moving in a few days before the rest of campus, Liberty's Student Leadership will be ready to greet you, help you move in, and plan fun hall events!

    In three sentences

    Liberty is a school of high standards and solid principals. We are forever growing and expanding, making way for world-class facilities. Learning how to be a Champion for Christ will permeate every aspect of your life at Liberty.

    There are lots of things to do for fun at Liberty. They have a sports center with a pool, track, exercise area, and many other things. There is also plenty of room to do things outside, including their year round ski slope!

    The food at Liberty is pretty good. They have several different options, however, most of the food is the same and after a while it can get a little boring.

    Students who are chasing a better relationship with Christ. Surrounding yourself in a place where you can feel His presence will highly affect what your flesh might want to think or say. People there are willing to listen, and willing to help. Liberty is great for people who know they don't have life all down, and they're not perfect, but are willing to learn and grow.

    The football games are huge on campus! It's the pride of the school

    Bang for the buck

    Every year thousands of students join the Liberty family and there lives are changed. There is something different about this school. Every student gets prayed for daily by name. That is special. I hope that you've enjoyed this review. Hopefully I'll see you at LU!

    What to do for fun

    At Liberty University, there really always is something to do! You can have fun hiking on their amazing Liberty Mountain Trail System, or get out and play some Ultimate Frisbee with some friends. Liberty has spot called the Liberty Mountain, home of the Snowflex Centre. This is essentially paradise for a student who lives on campus and can ski/snowboard. It is a blast!

    Food and Dining

    Liberty University has an huge cafeteria named the ROTD (Reber-Thomas Dining Hall). The food is, might I say delicious. I believe that is pretty important for someone with a demanding appetite. Many other recreational venues have place to eat. For example, the Tilly's Center or the Campus East Clubhouse.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be ready to go open-minded for the things God has stored for you at Lynchburg. You must prepare to get involved in events and groups around the school (clubs, intramural sports, fraternities, etc.).

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a learning institution with a superb atmosphere filled with a great energy. The students at LU seemed to be extremely sociable and friendly. I think Liberty University is a place packed with things to do around campus and is also a incredible school that helps develop high-class 'champions for Christ'.

    Academic Rigor

    Although I have not attended Liberty yet, I did do quite a bit of research before enrolling and the remarks from current students as well as the nods for academic excellence it has received were outstanding.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you aren't sure of what you want to major in, do not declare a major. If you are undeclared you can pick whatever courses you want and get alot of your general courses out of the way without having to take the freshman level courses for a specific degree. So many freshman change their majors three or four times their first year. Take some time to experience some basic college level classes and soak in the college atmosphere...maybe even audit a class or two in a major you are considering. Then after a year of more careful thought, declare your major.

    In three sentences

    Although I have not yet been able to attend Liberty University, I have several friends to do and it is upon their recommendation that I explored the avenues of obtaining my degree with them.

    I loved the cafeteria, The Rot, as the students call it. The food is really good, and so is the variety. They have pizza to oriental food to tacos. I loved it, and it was worth eating there.

    Dorm Life

    I loved staying in the dorm. So many people are nice and close, and the dorms are also very nice. It gave Liberty a nice feeling, and it was better since the dorms were separated by gender. All of the dorms were very nice, and the rooms expressed everyone's personality nicely.

    Academic Rigor

    The one class that I had visited during CFAW was an English Shakespeare class, which was very fun. The professor did not hand out the answers to the students, but rather gave them a chance to express their opinions on the play they were studying. He also had a movie clip to show from the play, and compared it to the writing. It was very enjoyable.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would suggest going to a CFAW when possible. It's college for a weekend, where you stay in a dorm for a weekend, getting the feel of the school. There are many things you can do, such as going to sporting events, hanging out at the Tiley Student Center, or going to classes. It is a blast and a great way to find out whether or not you would enjoy attending there.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is super fun and enjoyable. It is very welcoming and I loved visiting. The friendly atmosphere and presence of God working is amazing.
