    In three sentences

    If I had to rate VUL on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give it a 6. The school is very disorganized and small. It also doesn't offer a lot of majors to choose from.

    Great for these types of students

    Christian Students

    Bang for the buck

    You get exactly what you pay for!

    What to do for fun

    Sporting events, Homecoming activities, Student Appreciation Day, Concerts

    Food and Dining

    I don't know first hand because I'm a non-traditional student, but from what others tell me it's not the worst but it's not the best.

    Dorm Life

    I don't know first hand because I'm a non-traditional student. Its a new institution but they are rapidly expanding. Two new dorms have been constructed over the last few months.

    Academic Rigor

    Very challenging but there are always someone there to help you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Like any college, how well you do determines the effort you are willing to put forth. The sky is not the limit! Reach for the moon and if you miss you'll still be among the stars!

    In three sentences

    A very small school in the heart of Lynchburg, Va. Very challenging classes with instructors who are committed to excellence.

    Campus Safety

    Nothing really happens but they do have security in a little building. If you have a problem you have to go to the building. There are no call boxes or anything

    Greek Life

    They have Deltas, Kappas, and Alphas. (Black Greeks) But all of them are Chapters of other local schools.

    Clubs and Activities

    All they have is main sports. other than that there are no clubs or actvities

    Great for these types of students

    Students with low GPAs, ACT, and SAT scores. Also for students that don't want to work hard but still pass.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is only 3 buildings that make up campus and 4 dorms.

    Bang for the buck

    The school doesn't cost a lot. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

    What to do for fun

    Chill with friends is the only thing to do, unless you go to the other colleges to have fun.

    Food and Dining

    The food is not healthy at all. They serve a lot of fried foods and almost everyday you WILL eat Chicken. There isn't a wide variety of selections.

    Dorm Life

    The New dorms bathrooms are very nice but the actual room is too small to accommodate two people and there are no closets. The old dorms are fine. I prefer the old dorms over the new. ( I Lived in both)

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are like High school courses. If you want a challenge this school isn't for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would NOT recommend this university to prospective student. Note: It takes 3 years to get your associates and 5 years to get your Bachelors.

    In three sentences

    I am Transferring from this university because it isn't a good school in my opinion.
