    Clubs and Activities

    there's soooo many options when it comes to activities and clubs. whatever you are interested in, there's probably a group who is interested in the same things.

    Great for these types of students

    if you're a christian, no matter what you want to do, liberty is a great school. honestly, it's even great if you have no idea what you want to do.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    behind the campus on liberty mountain, you can actually hike to the monogram the big lu on the side of the mountain) and hang out on top! there's a little pergola up there and a really gorgeous view.

    Bang for the buck

    liberty is definitely expensive, but so worth it. it truly is a quality education in all areas.

    What to do for fun

    liberty has so much to do on campus. there's always concerts and events, but also skiing and snowboarding nearby as well as a mountain to hike on!

    Academic Rigor

    the classes are definitely challenging, but not impossible by any means!

    Tips for prospective students

    if you're worried about getting accepted into liberty, don't be. they will work with you on your essay or test scores and tell you exactly what you need to do to get in because they truly do want you there. :)

    In three sentences

    i'm enrolled as an online student and i love it. if you want the experience of great professors and well-rounded material from a christian perspective and still take classes from the comfort of your own home, then this is definitely the school for you! you will be highly satisfied.

    this school is perfect for many reasons. i would personally love this school because i got saved by the lord and this is the largest christian university. i love to work hard for a common goal and like to walk by these words "as common courtesy please leave this place better than you found it" i always live by that statement and will live by that statement here at liberty.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very safe. The worst crime that occurs here is drunk driving. The LUPD (Liberty University Police Department) is constantly on patrol and ready to help in any situation.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is expensive, but it is well worth it. You will make several very close friends, gain an excellent education, and be spiritually nourished and prepared for life.

    What to do for fun

    There's a lot to do on and around campus that is fun. The Student Union has several recreational facilities, and there is a whole league of intramural sports that anyone can sign up to play. There are also the friends you will make and can do several things with.

    Food and Dining

    While the dining hall does not have the best food in the world, it is a far cry from being bad. Also, there are multiple other places to eat at or around campus. The meal plan gives you several meal swipes, which are basically free meals, for different restaurants, as well as $200 of Flames Cash that can be used at several off campus locations.

    Dorm Life

    Life in the dorms is awesome. People are generally very friendly, and the Student Leadership is very helpful, and genuinely cares about your well being.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty is fantastic because the academics are challenging without being overly difficult or strenuous. You will definitely receive a high level of education at Liberty.

    Tips for prospective students

    Learn the campus lingo quickly. Different parts of campus have different nicknames, and it will be very helpful to know which nickname goes with which place.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is the best school there is! It has excellent academics, a fantastic campus life, and incredible preparation for future life. The campus is safe and inviting, and the people are amazing.

    Campus Safety

    I always felt safe on campus and LUPD was always available if needed.

    Greek Life

    No greek life

    Clubs and Activities

    So many great clubs. I was a part of the pre-med and pre-soma clubs while i was on campus and loved it. Convocation is great and there are many other activities to do on campus if you get bored. Oh and look out for Sloths (inside Joke) lol

    Great for these types of students

    All type of students.. This school is very accepting

    Bang for the buck

    I would say Liberty is worth every penny. Yes it is expensive but they are pretty generous with scholarship money! Convocation is also a plus and I think the money I paid to come to the school covered my experience at convo. The campus is well kept and the staff is helpful.

    Food and Dining

    The food is good. Make sure you have your I.D. to swipe in or you wont be able to get into the Rot.

    Dorm Life

    I stayed on east campus. The dorms are great but I didn't click with my roommates. Make sure you get on the Facebook group so you can find a roommate through there so you wont have to get a random roommate. But the rooms are spacious and well maintained and if you have any problems you only have to submit a work order and the maintenance crew would come solve any problems.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are good. The courses were easy for me but some people i knew struggled. Pay attention and take notes.I really enjoyed the religious classes. The math classes are online.

    Tips for prospective students

    Have an open mind, get involved, and bond with your hall!

    In three sentences

    This is the best school ever. You will have a lot of fun and make many new memories. Just get involved and you will have a great time.

    Campus Safety

    I felt very safe while visiting and staying overnight on the campus. Everyone watches out for eachother, although there really isn't anything to watch out for. LUPD seemed to be very on their game in watching out for the campus.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who: want strong academics that will prepare them for the real world; want strong community of Christian friends and endless opportunities to grow spiritually; want plenty of fun things to do during their free time

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is a private school, and is thus on the expensive side. I have not received my financial aid award letter yet and depending on how much aid they are able to offer me will make or break my decision to attend college here.

    What to do for fun

    There is so much to do here!!!! Tons of things to do on campus, and Lynchburg is a really cool town as well! The university is located in central Virginia, so it is close to several major cities and the options are endless for day and weekend trips.

    Food and Dining

    Liberty's Rheber Thomas Dining Hall has definitely been rated the #1 college dining hall in America for a reason! The food was excellent and the building itself is beautiful and very well organized. This is a great area to meet new people and run into old friends.

    Dorm Life

    I stayed overnight with three welcoming lovely ladies in a dorm on The Hill. The dorm was very cozy and clean, they seemed to have an amazing set of RA's who really took the time to get to know me and had deep relationships with all of the girls in the hall. Right when i walked in the door to the dorm building, there was a huge area of the wall taken up with index cards with very specific prayer requests and one of the RA's was going through collecting the cards to go pray with her sister RA about.

    Academic Rigor

    This isn't a stereotypical bible college. Liberty is accredited by the same accreditation board that accredits Virgina Tech, Vanderbilt, Clemson, etc... I will be a pre-physician assistant/Biomedical Science Major and I was able to meet with the dean of the Biology/Chemistry Department. He was absolutely incredible, he took his time talking with me and answering all of my questions. Their pre-med program is excellent, and they have a Global Studies minor for students planning on going into medical missions.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early and submit your Confirmation Deposit asap to secure the maximum available scholarship package.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is an amazing school with so much to offer. I have many friends who are alumni and all they can do is talk about what wonderful experiences they had there and how it has prepared them for their careers. Last week when I visited campus for an overnight stay and Friendly Friday, I fell in love with the campus and the entire environment this vibrant Christian community provides.

    Tips for prospective students

    I like it so far. Only sucky part I had with this school was the financial aid so much stuff you have to go through just to finish the check in. But other than that I'm in enjoying it I started my first two classes today. Hopefully all my courses be this easy lol! Including the ones that's coming.

    Food and Dining

    Liberty's cafeteria, The Reber Thomas Dining Hall, was ranked number one in the United States in 2015. There are also many other food options to choose from that take either Flames Cash or free Meal Swipes.

    Dorm Life

    Most dorms are nice and in a good location. You are able to fill out a form describing what your preferences are in your living space to hopefully be matched with a roommate that is similar to you.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors are highly intelligent and skilled at what they teach. It is most definitely possible to maintain a high GPA if a student is very dedicated and serious about their schoolwork.

    Tips for prospective students

    Register as an Undecided major if you aren't sure of what you want to study, This helps because you are able to get many of the required courses done within your first few semesters without worrying about useless credits. I would also recommend coming to College for a Weekend or Friendly Friday to come view the campus.

    In three sentences

    Liberty is a great environment for those looking for a college that isn't a party zone, but still offers a wide variety of activities and social experiences for students. The professors strive to present the best material possible to their students, also while including the Gospel in what they teach. It is also a beautiful campus with amazing views at all times of the year.

    Attend sporting events, explore Lynchburg

    Food and Dining

    I've heard the food is AMAZING!

    Dorm Life

    My friend doesn't have much in common with her roommate, who is also very messy, so I rate Liberty a 4 star.

    Academic Rigor

    My rating is not first hand, but I have a friend who attends and says that academics at Liberty are rigorous.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University stands up for God, and I love that. They seem like a great Christian university and I can't wait to attend!

    Campus Safety

    The Campus is very safe. Everybody is generally concerned about each other's safety

    Greek Life

    No Greek Life

    Clubs and Activities

    If we don't have it , you can probably create it !

    Great for these types of students

    If you are a student curious about Christianity, want to have good clean fun, or are a believer yourself, Liberty should be on your list. It's Challenging. it's Encouraging.Its Engaging. It's Liberty.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    One tradition is that we lovingly shout our president's name before he speaks (it almost sounds like booing which makes it funny). There are many more , but you have to come to experience them.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition is put to good use because the campus is always expanding and improving : by next year will have an expansion which includes a bowling alley , and gaming lounge, a finished music building and other projects that are in the works. There will also be more academic buildings and facilities which will enrich the campus's academic side.

    What to do for fun

    The Student center is great! It includes dancing circuits, an extensive gym/workout area , about 5 basketball courts, a swimming. Pool , two indoor soccer fields and much more. There are also alot of campus related worship bands or service entities to becombecome a part of. In other words, you are only bored becuase you want to be .

    Food and Dining

    On campus has a variety of food styles : fast food , barbecue , Mexican styled and healthy options as well. Off Campus dining includes : cracker barrel , Buffalo wild wings , Chic-fil-a and many others.

    Dorm Life

    There are a variety of dorm styles including apartment style , suite style , regular style and off campus housing. All are great but if you are a freshman , I would recommend on campus housing so that you can learn to interact with people with differing personality types.

    Academic Rigor

    You have to do the work and do not to the best of your ability if you want an A even on a general education class. Don't go lazily into that general education class. You will regret it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Look for clubs to join or places you can serve on or off campus. You will meet your best friends in these places. Also don't be afraid to put yourself out there.

    In three sentences

    The greatest expanding university with real world impact. Liberty is a very open campus and is not afraid of intellectual conversation on differing viewpoints. Liberty is definitely the place for students who love to have a great time without letting go of their morals.

    Campus Safety

    LUPD is the bomb! You're free to call their non-emergency number if you have any questions about the tunnel gate, need an escort at night, or you're with a friend who has a minor injury (talking from experience). They also have an emergency number to call if you feel endangered or see danger. I always feel safe at Liberty because everywhere I go there is a fancy car with red and green lights on the top and black long stickers on the side that are there looking out for me.

    Greek Life

    This only applies to students who are studying it.

    Clubs and Activities

    If you like dancing there is swing dancing every Friday evening from 7pm-9pm in the Atrium of Demoss. There is also a break dancing group that meets regular around campus to practice new and old moves. Skateboarding is probably the second most popular mode of transportation, as well as a nightly activity outside Demoss by the eagle fountain.

    Great for these types of students

    The commercial music program is the best place for those students who want to become future artists, songwriters, performers, and film score writers. They are always bringing in special guest speakers like Greg Nelson, Meredith Andrews, Tim Timmons, and more to tell the students about what they do and what they will need in their tool bag for what they are about to face.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Convocation is like meeting together inside a large golfball. It's a very unique building, but it is definitely the place for thousands of students to gather three times a week!

    Bang for the buck

    You never know who you will meet on campus! We have famous authors, actors, artists, music producers, and the alike come and speak at convo. Sean Astin, who played Sam in Lord of the Rings, came and spoke to the student body. Kirk Cameron has come several times and even did some film shooting during convo. Tim Lee, a military veteran who lost both his legs due to a mine accident, is a regular speaker at Liberty. Not every speaker agrees with Liberty's stance on certain issues, but this allows students to think critically about their own beliefs. The student body is constantly being exposed to today's top leaders, which is a wise way to raise up champions for Christ.

    What to do for fun

    There's something for everyone! Liberty has free dance exercises every week like Zumba and Hip-hop! There's also Snowflex for those more adventurous students who enjoy snowboarding, skiing, and tubing. There's a rock wall at the gym as well as a huge workout area. Oh yeah, and there are hot tubs, too! Events are a huge way to have fun at Liberty! You just need to keep your ears and eyes pealed for concerts on campus, movie nights, open dorm nights, festivals...and did I mention snow days?! Liberty is located near the mall, lakes, parks, stores, and more that all it takes is for you to decide to go out with some friends and have an adventure.

    Food and Dining

    Stellar! Take your pick at the rot between fast food, home style dinner plates, Mexican, asian, pizza and pasta bar, sandwich bar, salad bar, unlimited cookies and ice cream, and the amazing gluten free section! Or go to Green Hall and get Chick-Fil-A, Starbucks, subs, wraps, or salads! If you're rushing between classes in Demoss, swing by Subconnection and grab a sub to go! There is also Simply to Go that accepts Flames Cash and is filled with quick snacks like muffins, energy bars, and drinks. Studying at the Liberty? Go downstairs to grab some Starbucks or anything from the four food stations on the terrace floor. Finally, just need something to satisfy that sweet tooth before convo? Grab a donut or a hot drink from Dunkin Donuts at the Commons!

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are wonderful! You make the most friends and connections within your hall. If you choose to live on campus, know the rules and do not complain about curfew. There is the option of commuting, but why do that when you can walk to your classes in five minutes and catch breakfast with your friends beforehand? The dorms are where it's at!

    Academic Rigor

    You have a huge support system at Liberty! You are told by your professors what is expected of you and they cheer you on to do your best. Your RA's, SLC's, and PL's are there, not only to be some of your best friends, but also to be the shoulder you need to lean on when you're weak. Ultimately, like anywhere and with anything in life, you choose your grades in the end. If you do your best, you will at least past, but most likely with flying colors.

    Tips for prospective students

    Know the Liberty Way and keep to the code and it will go well with you and your people. Befriend those who are different from you, and be open to learning new things, but always use God's Word as your final belief. Study first, play second, but always eat!

    In three sentences

    Liberty University's campus pastor, David Nasser, has caused the student body to step up its game by challenging them to be and do more than they ever dreamed possible, not because of our power but God's power working through us. I have been at Liberty for four years in a row and have seen the school of music and worship grow into one massive school to where it had to separate worship education from commercial music education, as well as give music majors their own building - complete with 50 plus practice rooms, a recording studio, a 600 seated choir room, and more! Liberty University s filled with real people who care more about you as an individual than the better person you know you can be.

    There have been some occurrences robbery or assault but not too much. It has its own police department which helps out a lot.

    Greek Life

    None

    Clubs and Activities

    Not many that I know of

    Great for these types of students

    It's a great place of course for people who believe in God and are Christians as this is a Christian university and really it is a blessed univeristy.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    It used to be that no kissing was allowed on campus but Jerry Falwell Jr. would hand out mistletoe around Christmas so that couples could kiss. Now, it's allowed to kiss so not as unusual.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is a place of opportunities as you will meet so many people from all over the world and really you get friends from Brazil, California, Canada, Argentina, Ghana, Europe, India, China, and so many more.

    What to do for fun

    There is Snowflex which is a year around place to snowboard and ski except if it freezes over. We also have Camp Hideaway which where we have a small lake that you can kayak, and have slides, and an equestrian center. Many dorms go together to camp hideaway because you have to reserve spots ahead of time.

    Food and Dining

    The food on campus is good and there are plenty of options for food on campus. The main dining hall has a lot of options from burritos to pizza to pancakes to international food. You also have sub-co which is like subway, a taco stand of sorts, a sushi, Aunti Anne's, Pizza Hut, Baskin Robbins/Dunkin Donuts and few others.

    Dorm Life

    Depends on where you are on campus, the Hill is where there is more of a community and I am biased towards the Hill. There is no fraternities but my time on the Hill was the best and we had plenty of fun. You'll get to know a lot of people real fast on the Hill.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on the major you choose it will depend. Almost all academics that I know of are ones that will teach you what you need to know and get you connected to future job offers. The Nursing and Aviation majors are the hardest at Liberty but you will also come out on top knowing a lot more than many of your fellow peers and with ability to get a job soon after college.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come for College for a Weekend, and get involved in the fun but also check out different classes that you are looking into as this will give you a better picture of the teachers. Get ready to be called a CFAW, but don't worry, as soon as you go to Liberty, you can start calling visitors CFAWs too.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is worth the cost and its cost is a lot lower than many universities. Depending on your major, it may be a very good school. My major is nursing and nursing majors from Liberty get a job right out of college; it is also a very tough major so dig in.

    Food and Dining

    Although I am an Online student, I have visited the dining halls on campus while visting for College for a Weekend. The dining was delicious! Liberty University didn't win best dining hall for nothing!

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on classes or professor.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you would like to study at Liberty University I would call their number at (866) 418-8743 for a full walk through to get you to your wanted degree. Sometimes the books can be rented, but make sure to always ask your professor first because some books have one time access codes that won't be available with a rented book. Classes are usually split per quarter so if you want to take four classes per semester but would like to avoid any chaos, you can select B term and D term to have two classes per academic Quarter. Applications are usually first come first serve because LUO doesn't have a hard deadline to apply. Make sure to not forget about Financial Check-in! This is based on a hard deadline so don't forget to complete that process. Liberty has a wide variety of scholarships and aid for students, so be sure to check that out! Goodluck!

    I am an online student at Liberty University online, where professors sincerely want to help students understand and learn material while helping with spiritual growth. Most online schools don't have the genuine care that can be felt all over the world, nomatter where you live. With seven days to complete a module, excellent presentations, amazing professors, and beneficial assignments the offer is truely amazing.

    Campus Safety

    Liberty University's police department is 24/7 right on campus; it doesn't get much safer than that. It is obvious that Liberty acts as one big family to the point where if something were to happen, you would have many people there to support you.

    What to do for fun

    There are so many activities offered on campus that it is hard not to have fun. Most of the time I go to dinner with friends from the brother and sister dorms for fun but honestly the campus events and activities are endless!

    Campus Safety

    Liberty is an extremely safe campus. LUPD (Liberty University Police Department) is constantly patrolling the streets of Liberty and the surrounding area. They are just a call away and always have someone on call. If you are walking back to your dorm at night you can call LUPD and they will be your personal taxi driver. They are great people and keep the capus safe.

    Greek Life

    Im not really sure

    Clubs and Activities

    As ive already said, there are multiple activities to get involved in at Liberty. There are a ton of clubs you can get into, if you go on libertys website and look them up, you would be amazed at the clubs people have created. If you are really interested in something and want to create a club, you can!

    Great for these types of students

    Liberty is a great place for anyone. There is the HUGE library to get lost in books, the HUGE gym for the bodybuilders/everyday workout junkies/athletes. There is Camp Hydaway for the outdoorsy person. There are multiple food options for the food critics/those who enjoy eating. There are regular campus activities for the people person. No matter who you are, there is something for you!

    The 4th floor of Demoss has been nicknamed DeLOST because whoever numbered the rooms had no sense about them. The 5th floor of demoss is the coolest place on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    Movie on the lawn, movie marathons, concerts, open mic night, and that's just the beginning of the endless list of ways to meet new people and take a break from school work.

    What to do for fun

    Oh man, there is soooo much extra curricular activities you can get involved in. There is camp hydaway where you can ride ATV's, kayak/canoe, swim, zip line and paintball along with biking various trails. There is snowflex which is an artificial ski slope where you can ski, snowboard, or tube. There is a huge gym where you can jump in on any game you can think of from basketball and volleyball to ping pong or racquetball. You can also rock climb!!! There are multiple things to get into when you are bored but it is hard to be bored at this school.

    Food and Dining

    The food is pretty great. The rot does get a little old after a while, but you have North and Docs and even places off campus you can use your flames cash at. There are plenty of delicious options to chose from!!!

    Dorm Life

    DORM LIFE IS AWESOME!! Of course I am biased because I live on South Tower and it is a little patch of HEAVEN! Serioiusly, all the dorms have a bro-sis dorm that you get to know by tailgating with, having game nights with and all kinds of cool stuff.

    Academic Rigor

    Very strong professors and helpful. Classes are challenging but bearable.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not call the reber Thomas dining hall by its name, Liberty students will laugh at you! We call it the rot. Avoid the rot at all costs during CFAW, go eat at North. If you are falling behind in a class, go to tutoring, it is FREE (well your tuition sorta pays for it). Get your moneys worth for college.

    In three sentences

    Liberty is a great school with a very warm atmosphere. The students are respectful and the professors are helpful. There are multiple opportunities to get involved in and interact with other students here at liberty.

    The food at Liberty is FABULOUS! However, it is nothing like a good home-cooked meal. I really like Reber Thomas Dining Hall (AKA: The Rot) and Doc's Diner's burgers. There are two Subconnection locations on campus (Knock-off subway)..The one at Green Hall accepts meal swipes and the one at Demoss does not!

    It's no Harvard, but I was pleasantly surprised to see how advanced their classrooms were. I know and have heard many great things about Liberty alumni. Also, their teachers/professors are not tenured, so they have incentive to do their jobs well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't let the rumors of rules scare you off, they aren't as bad as they sound. There is a dress code, but it basically says don't wear your pajamas or be wildly inappropriate. The curfew is midnight, but it only means you must be in your building, and you are allowed to check out and go to the library or student union.

    Liberty is an amazing school with lots of opportunities for even the most introverted student. Their campus is beautiful and all the facilities are updated and technologically advanced.

    The campus is really safe. Liberty has its own police department to watch the campus. The campus is an open campus people that aren't students drive through there because there is a tunnel to another road that is a lot quicker that Liberty built.

    There is the Christmas Tree lighting where the trees along the main road through campus are lit during a ceremony. And Christmas music is constantly playing on speakers along the road through the Christmas time.

    I think that Liberty is worth how much it costs in that I have learned a lot while being there and have had a lot of fun.

    What to do for fun

    Liberty has its own mountain where it has Snowflex which is where you can tube, ski, and snowboard during the months that there isn't snow. During winter and snow it is closed because it becomes too slippery and dangerous. Liberty has indoor soccer courts and basketball courts. It also has an ice skating center and Liberty's Student Activities hosts events throughout the year.

    Food and Dining

    The food is great but as after awhile I think no matter what college you go to you'll be missing your mom's food. They do have a lot of choices though ranging from pizza, Chinese food, salad bar, burritos, and burgers.

    Dorm Life

    My roommates are awesome and my hallmates are great too. My RA's are great because they know the balance between the rules and forgiveness and when to say that's enough.

    Academic Rigor

    My academics were really hard for me at first because I was expecting challenges but not something hard. It was hard and halfway through the semester I had to set my priorities straight overcome the challenges and I did. I am hoping to get into the nursing program so my classes were challenging but the matured me a lot and taught me a lot.

    Tips for prospective students

    Try out CFAW which is College for a Weekend and see how you like it. In the first couple days at Liberty if you're new, be willing to get out of your comfort zone and meet as many people as you can and befriend as many as you can because as the semester progresses you'll have less time to go out befriend new people.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a great university because of the amount of opportunities there and the great people that are there. I can say that 90% of the guys on my hall are great guys and the opportunities are endless because of all the internships, speakers, programs there are. Liberty seems to have a good reputation among businesses and other programs so there are great internships and a degree from Liberty gives you a good name because of the school being what it is.

    The courses can vary from easy to difficult. The professors are encouraging, will work with you, and available for contact via email and possibly phone. First-time students and transfer students may be required to complete CLST 100 which get students prepared for college life. It is an easy class. Students that have or have had student loans will be recommended to complete a free course called FNLT 101 which is centered on Dave Ramsey's financial teachings.

    Tips for prospective students

    The online school does not give you a personal academic counselor. They are randomly selected each time you call. They pay for high school and college transcripts so you will need to apply at least a month and a half, ahead of the semester you intend to start in, as they will not let you register for courses until all transcripts are received and they have come to an admission decision. You will have to do financial-check in before the deadline which will require you to electronically sign an online contract and agree that you be deducted a monthly fee even when receiving financial aid. Be ready to pay a small monetary fee during the first month of your financial check-in, regardless of receiving financial aid. Adjustments will be made as the university receives scholarships and grants. The courses are not self-paced but coursework deadlines are reasonable. The coursework does challenge you to have a deeper relationship with the Lord, know His Word, apply His Word in life situations, and learn your academics.

    In three sentences

    There are many clubs and intramural sports teams. Student activities are offered many times in a semester. We have an ice skating rink, all-year-round skiing/snowbording/tubing, open fields by the dorms for frisbee/soccer/football, and more! The city of Lynchburg also has a lot to offer. There groups on campus that participate in service outreach as well.

    With all the various opportunities, connections, and on campus activities available Liberty takes care of their students. Tuition may cost more than a local university, as it is also a private school, however the price paid is well worth what is received.

    What to do for fun

    Snowflex. This is Liberty's year round snow slope. You can ski, snowboard, and tube all year round. There is also a large fitness center with a rock wall, an ice arena for skating, plenty of sports fields, never ending extracurricular activities and clubs, and brand new library.

    Food and Dining

    Campus offers plenty of food options from Chi-fil-A to Starbucks. The dining halls offer gluten-free options now and have ranked in the top healthiest schools in the country. Just be forewarned that The Rot got its nickname for a reason.

    Dorm Life

    Living on campus at Liberty provides built in friends. With roommates, prayer leaders, and RAs you always have someone to turn to when in need or someone to hang out with.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty offers a wide variety of majors and programs, which may initially seem as if their academics are too wide spread to be high quality. Despite this, Liberty's academics score high nationally every year, and many graduates earn top awards and honors in their field.

    Campus Safety

    I walk alone here a lot for certain reasons, and I've never felt uncomfortable or anything like that. I don't see too many officers around campus, but there are lights and people out usually. If Liberty is as safe as it feels, it is quite safe.

    Greek Life

    Liberty doesn't have any greek life, but there are lots of little clubs and things people get into, and they get pretty close.

    Clubs and Activities

    If you keep your eyes open for clubs and activities, you'll find lots. Some aren't as good as they seem, so I suggest not committing to any of them until you've been to a few meetings or something. But they can really enhance your experience in college.

    Great for these types of students

    The average white conservative Christian middle-class person will probably like it here. I do not fit into this category, but it is still nice here. International students seem to like it here too.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    If you stay for fall break (really only two days long and a weekend) we play fun running-based games in Demoss! It's fun because Demoss is huge and running in huge places is fun!

    Bang for the buck

    It is rather expensive to go to Liberty, but they provide us with so much that I think it is worth it for me. It depends on the value you place on your education and all the other things here. I think all students in college pay for things they never use.

    What to do for fun

    I really like ice skating, so I recommend scheduling your classes so you can take advantage of the hour-long free ice skating sessions every day or so. I hear intramural volleyball is a lot of fun. The dollar theater here is great, $2 to see some good movies.

    Food and Dining

    This may be a bit spoiled, but while the ROT food isn't that bad and the renovations are great, even all these options get old after a while because they are the same options. The gluten free and other allergy-free options are pretty good; not the best, but still pretty good. I eat there all the time and avoid paying for food when there's free food there. If anything maybe I keep my weight down by eating only there. I haven't eaten at Doc's too many times, but I didn't really like the food I did eat there; it tasted cheap to me. Try it out at least once with friends. The food at Green Hall is my favorite. The food in the new library is good too, but expensive.

    Dorm Life

    I live on the Hill. Several times I have considered leaving next year, but the location is Killer Good and has saved me points on homework and gotten me to events on time several times. I would definitely recommend it for freshman, even though it does not have a common area like the new Commons dorms. However, if you are willing to pay the extra $1000 and want to be an Eagle Scholar I would live on the Commons. I've never lived there (this is my first semester) but the Eagles up there have grown really close and I may have missed out on that because of the extra cost.

    Academic Rigor

    This is only my first semester, but I am taking Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior classes to try and spread out the harder classes. They are doable, as long as students remember to keep their eyes on when things are due because in several classes professors will not mention upcoming assignments. Students who want to learn more can do so without too much effort, so if you are considering the Honors program to learn more, pray about it but you can learn quite a bit from the regular classes and have more time for other activities that will enhance your resume with actual projects you've done (at lease if you are a business major). Do not underestimate the Bible classes--I am taking BIBL 105 now and it is difficult for me.The library is great for students who want to set up study groups.

    Tips for prospective students

    Liberty's administration is awful. Setting up financial aid, housing, classes--nearly anything that involves their administration is very stressful and sometimes it takes a while for them to get things right. They almost lost me thousands of dollars--it was the worst experience ever. So first of all, prospective student, please call as much as you can about everything, and double-check that you are on the same page with them about everything. And second, don't judge the school based on the awful administration. It's actually a pretty good school.

    In three sentences

    Liberty U is a good, normal Christian school with understandably difficult classes and many stereotypical Christian kids but also a fair amount of diversity. The awfulness of the school's administration made me think the school itself would be as awful, but it is not, and I am blessed to be here. There are lots of things to get involved in and activities to join.

    They have their own police department who perform their duty very well and are always prepared to do both ends of the job: protect and serve.

    Clubs and Activities

    A lot and something for everyone.

    What to do for fun

    Community service, games, on and off campus.

    Food and Dining

    Great. A lot of options and great meal plans.

    Dorm Life

    I personally struggled with this and very much disliked it. It is not for everybody.

    Academic Rigor

    They change you to perform your best and to become the best possible leader for Christ. The schooling is hard, but rewarding.

    Tips for prospective students

    Great for students of all origins and countries. Be ready for the work. Have a goal and do not attend unless you have a set degree (don't waste time and money just going to school). Get involved in community service opportunities within your field of study.

    In three sentences

    1. Great School truly Training Champions for Christ. 2. Awarding me with more then just an education, but also providing opportunity for experience and skill enhancement. 3. Provided great teaching that opened doors for employment.

    LUPD (Liberty University Police Department) is top notch!! They are always there to help if you lock your keys out of your car, need an escort to your dorm when it's late at night, or anything really.

    Greek Life

    There is none.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for any Christian that wants to be surrounded by other Christian and involved in a school who makes Christ first.

    Bang for the buck

    You get what you pay for! It is expensive but there are so many resources that come with it!

    What to do for fun

    For fun my friends and I host movie nights in our rooms, we go out to eat on Wards Rd., we go to Zumba, watch the gorgeous sunsets, go to snow flex, or go to one of the Liberty sponsored events.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is really good! It can still get old because you have the same options for every meal day in and day out. There are a lot of different options though!

    Dorm Life

    Liberty's dorm life is pretty much like any other college. There is noise and people up and down the halls. Community bathrooms can be a challenge in your Christian thoughts.

    Academic Rigor

    Your classes are very related to you major and there are no fluffy classes. You are busy but if you plan it right, you will still have time to get connected and have fun.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for prospective students would be to come for CFAW and get a general idea of the school. Students should be ready to work hard but know that there professors are there to support them. Be prepared to be surrounded by a community who loves Christ and He is at the center of everything!

    In three sentences

    A marvelous Christian university! Their entire purpose is to prepare champions for Christ and they do this incredibly effectively! The professions go out of their way to support the students through their studies, there are a million different ways to get connected, and with few exceptions, the student body here are very supportive and it is easy to make friends.

    What to do for fun

    There are many things to do on campus for fun. Snowflex, a mini ski resort that allows you to go tubing, skiing, or snowboarding. The university has many concerts and sporting events as well. Competitions and movie nights hosted by the university are great too.

    Food and Dining

    The main eating place is known as the Rot. It has many dining options, however, they aren't that good. The employees can also be standoffish at times. Other eating places on campus are great. They have excellent service and great food. Although, the Rot comes with meal plan. The other places on campus that actually have good food require you to use meal swipes or cash.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is great at Liberty. The halls are like families. They do events together and emphasize bonding your first weeks there. So, there's a great chance you'll find friends.

    Academic Rigor

    This university is very rigorous in their academics. I felt very challenged this semester, and I am not in my core classes. My professors were not even close to being lenient and expected my best performance every time I had to show what I had I learned. Also, he tests accurately questioned me on the information I learned.

    Tips for prospective students

    This is a Christian university. Therefore, prospective students should expect non-alcoholism, no drug use, and many more aspects that reflect a Christian lifestyle.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University creates an awesome environment for it's students to learn and thrive. They support students academically, spiritually, and financially. Liberty University is an awesome place for students who want to grow in any area of life.

    This school is great for Christians that are looking for a bible based school that may have an interest in pursuing various areas of ministry. This school would also appeal to those with secular career goals within the scope of a biblical worldview.

    For fun we hang out around campus, or local places near campus. The school offers a dinner that's opened late, and a student center that they have just recently expanded.

    Food and Dining

    The dinning services have won many awards but it's definitely not home cooking. With that being said, for university food, its pretty good.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is great. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay on campus. With that being said, it''s not perfect. Because it was a girls dorm, there was some drama from time to time. But overall an excellent experience.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are of extreme importance here. A lot of your professors wrote the books they are teaching from which is really cool and means they know their stuff.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are paying for this on your own, take advantage of scholarships that are available to help lower the costs.

    In three sentences

    What to do for fun

    Throughout the semester there are a wide variety of campus activities including concerts and sporting events, which provide a large part of the entertainment at Liberty. Off campus there are limited things to do due in large to the smaller population of the city of Lynchburg. As far as nature is concerned though, there are many activities such as hiking, swimming, and skiing to do with the mountains being very close to campus.

    Food and Dining

    Limited options as far as food is concerned. The university does have one large dining hall, but the hall is often very crowded and the food is mediocre. The campus does provide healthy alternatives and promotes the need to live a healthy lifestyle.

    Dorm Life

    While Liberty implements strict rules, the school does intend to promote an uplifting atmosphere for the students. Dorm life is very active and provides the means to cultivate relationships with other people. Overall, the dormitories provide a great atmosphere to enjoy yourself outside of the classroom.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty University places a heavy emphasis on academic achievement and stresses how success in the classroom translates into the workplace. The professors are very personable and invest their time and effort into helping their students in any way possible. Depending upon the class, work can be challenging or can be easy.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come in with an open mind and willingness to get involved as there is indeed a wide variety of opportunities.

    In three sentences

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is really good. The Liberty University Police Department (LUPD) does an excellent job of keeping the campus safe. There have been very few incidents of violence on campus.

    Greek Life

    There is no Greek life on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are an abundance of on-campus clubs and activities for students to choose from. The clubs and activities depend on the students' interests, preferences, and political views. The clubs range from pro-life to Campus Serve, a student-led campus ministry that shares the Gospel with the surrounding suburban communities in Lynchburg in various ways.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is heavily pro-life and conservative Republican. Much of the student body adheres to the Republican Party. A College Republicans of Liberty University (CRLU) group meets on campus. Some of the convocation speakers are Republicans.The politicians who sometimes speak in convocation attack the Democratic Party and the President. The school advocates freedom of speech yet suppresses the College Democrats of Liberty University's (CDLU) right to meet on campus.

    What to do for fun

    There are a variety of intramural sports, athletic clubs, and extracurricular activities for students to be involved in. For example, there are intramural soccer teams, a paintball team, and frisbee team. Students also enjoy intramural broomball teams, Snowflex (a snowboard and ski resort), and a science observatory.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining at Liberty is good, even though it may not be Mom's home cooking. There are various dining locations where students can eat. Students have a variety of choices in the dining locales. Depending on their meal plans, students have Flames cash (money they can spend at different restaurants that partner with Liberty University) and meal points (money that students can use at certain on-campus restaurants and dining locations). However, Liberty University enhances the food for College For A Weekend (CFAW), an event where high school students, their parents, and youth groups can tour the campus for a three day weekend. The high school students, their parents and many Liberty students crowd the main campus dining hall which makes eating lunch and dinner very difficult.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is good. The types of dorms depend on the students' preferences. Most of the dorms have an excellent sense of community and unity. The various dorms have brother and sister halls. The brother and sister halls sometimes cooperate for various bro-sis activities such as mountain hiking, going apple picking, or participating in intramural sports.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are challenging and designed to help students grow intellectually, personally, and in their faith. The professors push their students to not only work hard but also truly learn the information in order to survive in a real world.

    Tips for prospective students

    Have a passion for learning in your classes. Challenge yourself to have intellectual debates with others. Get to know your professors. If you make less than an 85 on an assignment, quiz, or test, go back and talk with your professors. Many times they will help students understand their mistakes. Work hard and diligently in all your classes, especially classes for your major. In addition to working hard, take time to enjoy college and get involved in extracurricular activities.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a good school with a solid Christian foundation. The school emphasizes its Christian beliefs while maintaining its adherence to academic excellence with top-notch professors and classes. Many of the professors challenge their students to strive for excellence both in the classrooms and beyond.

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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    LU is the premier evangelical Christian University in the entire world. My dad graduated from Liberty University earning his Master's Degree. He is a champion for Christ.

    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!

    Non-existent.

    Food and Dining

    Once again, I cannot rate this fairly since I am enrolled in the online program.

    Dorm Life

    I cannot give a rating for this since I do not live on campus but I hear it is amazing and I look forward to visiting when I go to complete my MAT.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses are pretty challenging, especially the Probability & Statistics course. Many classes are very reading-intensive and require a lot of attention and self-motivation to do well in but the effort is worth it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Time management is a huge thing for any student taking online courses. Don't be afraid to talk to your advisor or utilize the online library and tutor service (students get 20 free hours of tutoring).

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a wonderful institution of higher education for those who wish to develop a Christian worldview and learn to apply that worldview to the varying subjects. I cannot say enough good things about the online program from the Blackboard system to the professors. There is a reason Liberty University is the largest Christian university in the world.

    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.

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

    Tips for prospective students

    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.

    In three sentences

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Liberty University is great for students who are attempting to finish their degree yet are unable to go away to school. This is my situation.

Therefore, Libertyâ??s online program, with its many options has given me the opportunity to move forward with my education.

    Liberty University works well with transfer students such as myself. Academic counselors helped me to decide on the degree that best fit my goals and which would receive the most amount of transfer credits. They also have been such a blessing in helping me as I want to Clep out of some of my classes. My academic advisor has provided me with the proper information for me to successfully complete my degree in the most cost efficient way.

    What to do for fun

    Liberty provides many social opportunities. Although Lynchburg itself is not a large area, the liberty community is rich with activity, from sports teams, to enrichment through the arts, to coffee houses, where talent is displayed. Whatever may interest you, you are sure to fins plenty of activity.

    Although I am not a residential student I am aware of the many dining options that Liberty provides for its students. Many of my residential friends have been satisfied with the options which cater to a broad scope of diets.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty University challenges their students to academic excellence. Classes are challenging, however, many tools are available to students who are willing to learn.

    Tips for prospective students

    Although Liberty is excellent at communicating, it is imperative that you as a student, are diligent and attentive in scheduling classes and keeping track of your credits. Look ahead, and be aware of upcoming assignments, so that you will receive the best possible education for your time, money and efforts.

    the student union always has something planned for students. whether its a concert, open mic night or one of the many division 1 sporting events. you'll never get board here

    In three sentences

    I love Liberty. A place with great academics and a strong value on serving the Lord. Professors are amazing, they pray before class and there door is always open to hear your concerns. Facilities are second to none, all the buildings are brand new and the bus system is so helpful to get across campus.

    The dining hall is called the rot. And at the Annex, the dining hall there is called the mini-rot. This is because Marriot hotels used to cater the food for Liberty. Even though Sodexo has taken over, the nick-name rot has stayed around.

    Bang for the buck

    Fairly cheap. They give out lots of scholarships, as long as you are on top of deadlines and whatnot.

    Go skiing on Liberty Mountain. Trail rides at the equestrian center. Bands during CFAW weekend.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are hard without being impossible. In the engineering dept. they encourage you to be your best.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't expect convocation to be like a church service. Be ready and willing mentally and emotionally to follow the Liberty Way. Bring clothes that while in dress code are what you want to wear. Be prepared for all your classes to have a Christian worldview.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a broadly evangelical college, whose main emphasis is Champions for Christ. They believe that since they are Christian, they must be the best, and since their students are Christian, they had better excel more than students from other colleges. It is a friendly, open community where one is free to be anything or do anything.

    LU is all about student safety. You'll always feel safe and won't have to worry.

    Great for these types of students

    Liberty is very diverse! Every state and 80 countries are represented. You'll never feel left behind here!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The ROT (dining hall) has a variety of different meal options for students. Some people give it a bad rep, like most dining halls, but its a nice option to have if you don't want to spend money. Students are tight with our President and VP. They are super funny and interact with students all the time. If you meet the President of LU on your birthday, tell him its your birthday and you'll get a nice gift! Oh, and you also get a balloon and cake on your b-day! Everyone goes absolutely crazy at football games! We have every superhero represented, people who completely cover themselves in glitter, and tons of war paint! You must always, always wear red!

    Bang for the buck

    For a private university and the amount of activities we do, it's fairly reasonable. Housing is expensive, but everything else is very worth it!

    What to do for fun

    Like I said earlier, you'll never get bored! World class speakers come to speak at Convo, where students typically get to meet them in person. Major artists come for legit concerts every few months. Coffeehouse and Open Mic are events where students can display their artists abilities to the whole campus. Outdoor movie nights and game nights give free popcorn and prizes away. Campus life is super fun!

    Food and Dining

    Flames Cash is probably the best thing to ever happen! Not only do you get swipes for multiple dining halls on campus, but Flames Cash is essentially a debit card from the university that gives you money to go eat at most chain restaurants near the school. There is also a Dunkin Donuts and Chick Fil A on campus; what more could you ask for??

    Dorm Life

    Each place on campus is super fun! Brother/sister dorm outings and dinners help build personal community. There are many different options, but no matter where you go, you'll find a family! Rooms are very clean and well kept.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are highly competitive and rigorous. Professors uphold integrity and do everything in their power to help students succeed. Class schedules are very fair and the work load is reasonable. The content is packed with more than enough for academic success.

    Tips for prospective students

    What sets Liberty University apart is its sense of community. This Christ-centered community does more than just give you a pat on the back. The leadership teams on the halls are always ready to be a listening ear, no matter the situation. There is no way one can't succeed with the amount of learning centers styled for every type of student (quiet study zone, group study classes, open study area, and a brand new state of the art library). The Career Center is the place to go if you are needing help on a resume or finding a job. Going to athletic games & convocation is the epicenter of campus community. Concerts and plays are always going on. You will never be bored!

    In three sentences

    Liberty University showcases a world class education. It has the utmost priority for its students, going above and beyond what is expected of a typical university to help its students excel academically and relationally. The sense of community is incredible, the university is constantly expanding, and the quality of education will surpass most top ranked universities in the world.

    What to do for fun

    There are plenty of opportunities for fun. Liberty is constantly having block parties and themed get-togethers, as well as all of the sports teams games. They also have intramural sports, an ice skating rink, year round skiing and tubing, pools, game rooms, etc. There are also many cultural opportunities and events around town with other colleges nearby.

    Food and Dining

    There is food everywhere!!!

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus with my husband and children.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty seems to be typical for it academic rigor. All professors expect you to follow instructions and if that is done and you take some time to study, you'll be fine. I've been to a community college and a very difficult liberal arts college (that required many, many long papers, essay exams, etc.) and as of yet, my freshmen classes reflect community college classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO STUDY BEFORE ATTENDING. With the price tag, take your time choosing what you want to study by attending a local community college before transferring to Liberty. You will have many freshmen required classes and if you have already taken your core education classes at a less expensive college, you will be able to focus on the classes that are required for your degree and lessen your course load.

    In three sentences

    Liberty is a great school for academics, a safe campus and great opportunities for fun. The school is geared primarily to students who live away from home. I highly recommend this school for Christian men and women who are studying any subject, but recommend that students know what they want to study before attending due to the price.

    Campus Safety

    There has not been one incident at Liberty that caused me even one bit of alarm. Liberty has it's own campus police, and I always seen them patrolling around, keeping our campus safe. Also, Liberty has constructing tunnels and bridges that keep students from having to cross busy intersections or roads.

    Greek Life

    Liberty doesn't have any sororities or fraternities. This in a way is good because it allows all to students to bond and get to know everyone on campus, rather than staying secluded to a small group of people.

    Clubs and Activities

    I'm not personally involved in any clubs currently, but I plan to find one that will coincide with my major. There are various clubs and activities that will cover one of your interests. Liberty also has many intramural sports you can be involved in, such as basketball and Ultimate Frisbee.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Every game day, students always wear red. It's so awesome to see the stands filled with students, making it look like a sea of red.

    What to do for fun

    Liberty has various things you can do for fun. You can go skiing or tubing at Liberty's Snowflex, you can swim, rock climb, play volleyball, basketball, indoor soccer, work out, attend exercise classes like cycling, Zumba, and yoga, all at the LaHaye Recreation and Fitness Center, which is available to all students. You can also go ice skating at the LaHaye Ice Center. There are also various video games you can play at the Tilley Student Center. Liberty also has various hiking and biking trails that you can explore. There are always plays, musicals, and concerts you can attend for entertainment. Also, Lynchburg has various places you can explore and find adventure!

    Food and Dining

    Liberty offers many different choices for dining. You can eat at the Rot, (Reber-Thomas Dining Hall), Sub Connection, the BIstro, or other various cafes on campus. They have restaurants all around campus, allowing students to choose where to eat at their leisure without having to walk too far. They food is also excellent! There are so many different types to chose from, and you never have to worry about staying healthy. All places to eat follow a meal plan, with points, Flames Cash, or swipes.

    Dorm Life

    Living in a dorm has been great! I've enjoyed getting to know my roommates and the girls on my hall. Liberty has various dorms to choose from, ranging in expense and style. I have friends who live on Campus East, which house the newer dorms that operate on a quad-style hall, with a main room that has a few rooms branching off. I also have friends who live on the Hill and the Circle, which house traditional dorms. They all have enjoyed their type of dorm, and are thankful for the choices of dorms they can pick from. Also, Liberty is in the process of constructing new dorms on the main campus, which will provide newer dorms and an upper floor for Honors Program students. Everyone I've spoken to about their dorm life have enjoyed the camaraderie and fun that comes from living with people that become their closest friends. They also enjoy the separation of Men and Women dorms, allowing privacy for all students.

    Academic Rigor

    After my first semester at Liberty, I've learned that the classes aren't too demanding, yet demanding enough that I'm not bored in my studies. I'm sure the rigor of my program will increase when I start taking classes for my major rather than the General Education requirements I took this past fall semester. I've been able to be involved in various extracurricular activities outside my major without falling behind in my studies, not feeling too much stress. I've been able to enjoy college life while maintaining my grades.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're interested in Liberty, even in small amount, I would suggest you register to be apart of CFAW, or College for a Weekend. This event is where prospective students have the chance to experience college life at Liberty for four days. You'll be able to stay in a dorm, attend classes of your choice, eat in the dining hall, attend concerts and Student Life activities, experience Convocation, and tour the campus and get a feel for what it would be like to be a Liberty University student. You'll also get to meet various current students and ask about their experiences and views on Liberty. There will also be hundreds of other students participating in CFAW, so you can bring as many friends as you want and make new ones! It's an opportunity you shouldn't pass up! You can get additional information for Liberty's website: http://www.liberty.edu

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is as great or better than the things you may have read about the school. It's mission for training Champions for Christ has given Liberty the initiative to not only create a high standard of excellence for its programs, but to also try to reach the individual student academically and spiritually. Liberty offers so many opportunities, from intramural sports to internships, and it's exciting campus and student atmosphere is not to be overlooked!

    To some Liberty might seem a little expensive but we get way more, education, spiritual growth, and long lasting friendship then what we pay for. What you get coming to Liberty University, you can put a price on. You have to come experience it yourself , you'll leave with butterflies in your stomach!

    What to do for fun

    There are tons of things to do for fun! Many students go the north campus which the gym is located at and the game center. Pool table, ping pong and also you can sugn out games with your flames pass. Off campus fun isnt hard there are many things to do. Many students love the dollar theater because its only 3 dollars for students!

    The food is not prison food. It is generally very good on most days. There are not a lot of option at the moment until they finish with construction. But the food places we have now are very nice!

    Dorm Life

    I love dorm life. They have different dorms for everyone's particular taste. There are not co ed but every girl dorm has a brother dorm so you do get to socialize with boys all the time. The RA's are very helpful and care for everyone the same. Most of the dorms are close to the academic facilities and the vines center, where convocation is held so it is very convenient!

    I previously attended Capella University and the courses were so easy they would be boring for a reasonably accomplished High School Student. Liberty has very high academic standards which make completing a degree with a high GPA more difficult, but contributes to the positive reputation of this institution.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to read a lot and write a lot. It is through reading and writing, not lectures and group projects that education is delivered through Liberty.

    Campus Safety

    Amazing. There are LU officers everywhere. If I'm out in the pit parking lot at night and need a ride to my dorm, I can call them and they'll give me a ride (no questions asked). As a young white girl, I never feel afraid or unsafe. The shooting that happened recently took place in my dorm. The on guard officer shot the attacker before he could compromise the safety of any of the hundreds of girls in the dorm. He did his job, and a good one at that. I feel safe there. Safety is a big deal for the whole campus. Even the students make a big deal. I've had young gentlemen offer to walk me to where I needed to go simply so I didn't have to be alone. Everything is well lit, and there are good precautions. I've been on campuses that felt unsafe. This is not one of them.

    Great for these types of students

    Everyone. Doesn't matter what you love. We have it.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Christmas convocation. The whole year is worth that right now. It's like a huge inside joke that is NOT televised for a reason. Most of the awesome is secret. You have to be there to see it.

    What to do for fun

    Psh, what NOT to do for fun! Hiking, biking, ATV's, canoeing, swimming, snowboarding, skiing, ice skating, pool, ping-pong, running tracks, video game clubs and tournaments, concerts, movie nights, game nights, etc. No matter what you like to do for fun, Liberty's got it. You'll have to be careful to set aside time to study!!

    Food and Dining

    Whatever you're in the mood for, it's somewhere on campus! And with all different kinds of meal plan options, there's a best way for everyone. Liberty's also about to open up a whole new set of dining options, so it'll only get better!

    Dorm Life

    There are certain rules laid out by the school, but they only work to serve and protect the students. Aside from that, each dorm is like a community of friends. I absolutely love all the girls in my dorm, and they all (for the most part) actually get along. Group activities, sleepovers, cookouts, and tailgates all together are weekly routine.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses are tough, but they're worth it. With almost every degree accredited by national agencies, Liberty is working hard to make sure you can take your degree anywhere. Unlike most private Christian universities, this school prepares you to go anywhere in life.

    Tips for prospective students

    Call the admissions office. I guarantee that they will help you work through whatever questions or problems you have in a timely manor and in a friendly way. I'm a student and I still call them when I need help! Can't go wrong there.

    Campus Safety

    Liberty's pd is one of Liberty's best asset because the men they hire are 1.) qualified for police duty and 2.) have the mind set that the students safety comes first. Liberty university's pd is always on the hunt for drugs, theft, and to the small thins like not being in the right parking spot. Lastly what makes the campus safe is the fact that from morning to night the police offers are constantly patrolling the campus.

    Greek Life

    Liberty University strays away from Fraternities due to the fact that it doesn't go with the Liberty way; however, Liberty university does ahas a ministry known as BTG Urban Ministry(Bridging The Gape Urban Ministry). BTG has a male branch known as DFC which is a male step group, A.O, which is and all female step group, and lastly Blood Pact which is a mixture of both male and female poets and praise dancers and music artist. What makes it different from the greek life is that the Ministry puts Jesus first the best way the can.

    Clubs and Activities

    Liberty University has hundreds and hundreds of clubs that fit the interest of its students. LU has clubs that rage from excelling in your chosen major to clubs for students who just want to meet those groups of friends that they will have in their lives in their later adult years. Each club that liberty has is obligated to do some type of community service as well.

    Great for these types of students

    Liberty University I say is great for all types of students due to the fact that it is judgmental of a particular student. Though Liberty university is strict in some areas it is for the benefit of the student. I would suggest any type of student to give Liberty a try.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    One the most unusual places on Liberty campus I would have to say is the Liberty Mansion due to the fact that the light is always on but no one lives there. Also what makes it unsual is its location, which is right in between the prayer chapel and the on campus dorm known as the Hill. Out of the places it is put there.

    Bang for the buck

    When it come to the tuition expense one must be mindful and take in consideration where exactly he or she will be living on campus due to the fact that this can play apart in raising tuition cost. Also it is important for one to constantly apply for scholarships even while attending liberty especially if their family has a middle class income. Lastly it is important to all ways stay in contact with financial aid.

    What to do for fun

    When it comes to fun and activities Liberty has a lot of fun for their students, especially when you join a group or club. Liberty has everything from plays to, sports and intramural sports, to live concerts, coffee house performances etc. Not only that but Liberty has its very own snowflex for those who snowboard as well as its own paintball field for those who love to paint ball.

    Food and Dining

    When it comes to Liberty's food and dining I must be honest that the best place to eat on campus is Doc's diner, due to the fact that the Reber Thomas Dinng hall can get tiresome sometimes. Also it is important to be mindful that Liberty has dining Cafe's on campus at well and has several different places to eat even off campus. One of the best places to eat off campus is Applesbee's.

    Dorm Life

    When it comes to dorm life, Liberty has dorms that suit your living preference and style based off the type of people you want to be around; however, when it comes to dorm life it is good to choose a dorm that makes it easy for one to study. Also, one of the best places to live in my opinion on campus is Campus East. Though its campus is a little on the pricey side on most days I found it easy to study in the environment.

    Academic Rigor

    The Academics are great. In my first semester there were only one or two classes that were a bit of a challenge but help is offered at Liberty.Also the professor tries his or her best to make whats being taught easy and understandable for the students.

    Tips for prospective students

    When attending Liberty University I advise you to join a club or step team just to have a good foundation of friends. When it comes to Liberty I advise you to follow the rules that are enforced by your RA. Lastly, it is important to do your best when it comes to classes, and to attend class regularly and only miss it when its absolutely needed because if you don't, you will feel it in the end.

    In three sentences

    On a scale of 1 to 10 I give Liberty University an 8 due to the fact that it is an amazing school. Although Liberty University is amazing it like all colleges has its ups and down. When looking at Liberty U I would recommend a lot of prospects.

    LUPD is great and can provide kids with escort services if they feel uncomfortable.They also are always around. Due to the biblical worldview the school contain, there are rarely any cases of theft, crime, or drugs. I for one have left my belongings unattended in a public area and have returned to see everything still in tact and in it's place.

    Greek Life

    There is non besides special organizations and societies due to honors, but no actual fraternities or sororities.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are tons of groups to be a part of and one for each student. You can even put ones together if they don't exist!

    Great for these types of students

    Students who want a healthy, Christian .

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have All-Night of Prayer which is when we pray for restoration for the community, school, and our hometowns. Its really nice and brings us together. We also have Convocation which is when a guest speaker usually shares their testimony and how they use their job to work for Christ. It's what makes us a community and everyone must attend mondays, wednesdays, and Fridays. We also have Christmas Convocation and Christmas/Spring Coffeehouse. Which are variety shows held by Student Activites and put on for the Campus and anyone who would like to come!

    Bang for the buck

    For it being a private school you really do get a run for your money! You have a versatile amount of things you can do since the school has so much money. They really cater to the students, although some things may be a bit costly like intramural teams.

    What to do for fun

    For fun there are plenty of activites! We have pool tables, ping pong tables, tons of fields for athletic teams/recreational usage, about 8 basketball courts, the Vines center for concerts, movie nights, and Divison 1 basketball, Tower Theatre for about 6 productions throughout the school year, tons of trips to places such as Carter Mountain, traveling trips for Missions, or Studying Abroad, Snowflex which is a ski lodge and tubing track, mountain biking, running, walking trails and paths, and newly added Camp Hydaway with a lake and tons of camp like trips.

    Food and Dining

    The food options are very versatile from the ROT(nickname for Reber-Thomas Dining Hall) to the Tilley, Bistro '71, Doc's Diner, Jamba Juice at the East Clubhouse, and the newly opened library with a full Starbucks, Pizza Hut, and Chick-Fil-A.

    Dorm Life

    This dorm life is great for kids who have a drug free alcohol free lifestyle. This campus takes partying strictly and does not tolerate any illegal substances. They believe you are hear to learn and that what you do at school (and off campus) should adhere to the ways of the Bible. Some find it very restrictive, but there is a ton of things you can do that are put together for you by the school.

    Academic Rigor

    This school will take in anyone who wants an education. Due to their religious views, they don't believe anyone- even if they aren't christian- should miss an opportunity to hear the Good News. As religion is tied into prerequisites, you will learn more than just the average academic education you need for this world, but one to support and practice your faith. You don't need a GPA higher than a 2.0 to take online classes, and they are very lenient when you need assistance. The Bruckner Learning Center has free tutoring almost everyday.

    Tips for prospective students

    Since the school has some what of a rolling admissions, make sure to apply early since the school has growing at an exponential rate and has been lowering their admissions rate. If you do want to experience the school from student life to academics, I highly recommend visiting for College For A Weekend(CFAW). It's a four day three night trip that's inexpensive and free if you've already put down a payment for this school. Don't hold yourself back from calling or emailing the school. They're very friendly and are willing to help you meet your financial needs and other things that are very important to get in to the school.

    In three sentences

    It's a place where anyone can feel comfortable being themselves. The staff and faculty genuinely care about the students on a personal and academic level. The environment is healthy and there is a very diverse community of people from all over the world.

    Campus Safety

    I feel safe going around LU's campus, but it is always wise never to allow yourself to become too comfortable. Instead, one should try to never walk alone, be alert, carry pepper spray, and even call LUPD for a ride home of you just do not feel safe. You can check out the Campus Safety reports from previous years just to view statistics. But always remember no place is safe, so proceed with caution.

    Greek Life

    There are a few academic Greek organizations, but I would go under LU's homepage to find out more.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are hundreds of clubs and activities. I would go under LU's homepage and search what you can get involved in depending on what interests you. Currently I am in the Pre-Med Club, Med-Serve, and Impact Bible Study. There is so much to do and so little time!

    Great for these types of students

    For anyone who wants to develop in their Christian life yet have the academic rigor of any Ivy League, choose Liberty. For those who want to abstain from the typical college experience of drinking and promiscuity that is more prevalent in a secular school, even if you are not a Christian, choose Liberty. Anyone is welcome, and will not be pressured to convert or etc. However, we would hope that if a non-believer chooses to attend Liberty that they decide to choose Christ.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a large rock across the street from DeMoss that people spray paint all the time. And people graffiti the sidewalk in front of it. But the best is the fact that President Falwell shoots down Mistletoe on his way to Christmas Convo and gives the limited supply out to any thirsty couples. They have permission to kiss on campus if they hold the mistletoe. Also, Coffeehouse is a big event that seems to get better and better.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is able to keep its cost down mostly because of how many online students they have. But I am not complaining because it is very affordable this way. Liberty is continuing to grow, continuing to offer students its best spiritually, academically, and entertainment wise so it is surprising that they do not demand more. They are also very great with scholarships/workstudy so that is always helpful.

    What to do for fun

    Usually there is always so much that student leadership has planned that I usually have fun on campus. But to be real I usually only attend open mic nights, athletic events, and movie nights. However, student leadership throws game nights and other fun events. Also, off campus in the shopping center not too far away( the 74 bus will take you there) there is a dollar movies, stores to shop at, and a variety of restaurants. The mall is also not too far off, Lake Ivy, and Snowflex are other options. If you have the time and money Richmond, D.C., Atlanta, Nashville, and New York are road trip ventures you could make.

    Food and Dining

    All the food is surprisingly good. Not necessarily healthy, but really good. In order to stay away from freshman 15 take the time to eat smaller portions and less hamburgers even if they are made the quickest. Simple Options always has gluten free/healthy meat, rice and veggies. The Tilly has a buffet with extremely fresh food. Chick-fil-A and Sub-Co are also in the Tilly. All three venues are always available except on Sundays, and when it is open (heads up) the line is usually very long. The Rot has many stations open at the same time so you always have variety. Plus you can use your Flames Cash at Dunkin' Donuts or surrounding restaurants off campus like Wendy's, Sonic, Macado's, Applebees, and Bloop's.

    Dorm Life

    All the dorms have a lot of space and are able to be furnished nicely and comfortably. If you like to be loud and want others to be loud with you, perhaps East Campus is not for you.I mean at East we can get loud, but i hear that the Circle dorms and other housing locations have more fun. Not sure about the Annex, but I hear it is pretty awesome over there. Because of hall meetings and brother/sister dorm events, you have the opportunity to have fun regardless of where you live on campus.You also need to make sure you clean MWF (you will have a chore for the week and a permanent chore that you and your roommate discussed) and for white glove(at the end of semester).

    Academic Rigor

    As a pre-med major, I know that the classes are not easy. However, I have friends in a range of majors and each share that their classes are also difficult. As you progress and become more intertwined into your major, it may become easier because it is more specific.Overall, being able to do well is not difficult despite how difficult the material may be. It is not difficult to do well because all professors encourage you to do your best. Each of your professors prays for you and makes flexible office hours. There is tutoring services available which are extremely beneficial. Professors are so willing to build a relationship with you and help you that they may even invite you over for dinner once in awhile.

    Tips for prospective students

    Liberty desires to help mold you into who you are meant to be and how you can make a difference in this world. The best way to get the best from Liberty is to be straightforward and honest about who you are. If you are not sure, also be honest but share your passions so professors and counselors can assist you into finding out.It may be helpful to take a College Learning Strategies Class to ease your transition into the university. You should research about housing, dining, your major, athletics so you can get a feel of Liberty. I would encourage you to apply for the Honors Program and Lead Program. I would encourage you to try out for athletic teams. It will make your college experience so much better to be well-rounded.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is founded and conducted upon Biblical principles, truths, and doctrine. Simultaneously, Liberty's academic opportunities are vast,athletics are majority NCAA Division 1 and are very good, and student leadership makes sure to put on awesome events. Liberty University has a student body that is not only diverse, but that for the most part consists of students actively desiring to show the love of Christ, thus making it a very comfortable and compassionate place to be for all people, even non-believers,

    Campus Safety

    In my 3.5 years on campus, I've only heard of 2 crime related incidents. Both happened well after curfew in areas at times when it would be very unlikely anyone would be around.

    Bang for the buck

    It's expensive, but it's a great school. You're definitely going to want some financial aid though.

    What to do for fun

    Snowflex is right on campus and is a year-round snowboard/ski slope that's great. There are also a ton of great hiking trails within about an hour of campus (including my personal favorite, Devil's Marble Yard, which is an intense bouldering trail, if you're into that).

    Food and Dining

    There are plenty of food options, and most really aren't that bad. After being on campus for a while, some of them start to feel very old and monotonous, and you will eventually join every student on campus in hating the main cafeteria's food, but you will still go and generally always find something you can eat.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life was not bad at all. I always enjoyed my time on the dorms, though it could occasionally get a bit rowdy and make studying difficult. Overall though, the dorms are a great experience.

    Academic Rigor

    From what I've heard, the academic difficulty varies a lot from major to major, but in taking computer science it has been an extremely rigorous endeavor. Lots of long nights and all-nighters (many of which were, surprisingly, not brought on by procrastination on the students' parts). It's very difficult, but very fair so you do not feel cheated afterwards.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're thinking about attending Liberty, try and get to one of the College for a Weekend events. It gives you the opportunity to check out a few classes and spend some times in the dorms and on campus. For me, CFAW sealed the deal and had me convinced I wanted to be at Liberty.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a great Christian university for students who may not be going into what are commonly called ministry-oriented majors (e.g., pastoral and Biblical studies majors). The professors are great and exhibit genuine care and concern for their students. Construction is seems unending, but the results are almost always beautiful and great for students.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very secure from any kind of violence, unruly conduct or criminal activity. Students feel safe walking to and from class late at night, running to the gym, running on trails in the woods and hanging out with friends.

    Greek Life

    There is no greek life.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs and activities to choose from. In every academic department there is a club for your major. There are many sports tournaments to participate in and very competitive intramural sports. There is also two coffeehouses one per semester where students show off their talents.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who wish to grow in their faith, students who want to have a Biblical Worldview in their area of study, students who want to excel athletically, students who want to make a difference in the world, Liberty is great for you.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Snowflex is an unusual location on campus. It is a ski and snowboarding facility with a beautiful lodge to do homework in or study or hang out. We have a gum tree you put gum on.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty University is definitely worth investing your money into. They care about your walk with God, they care about you as a person, and they want you to succeed in life and change the world. Liberty's education and athletic facilities are top of the line and the school is not in debt they keep expanding the campus.

    What to do for fun

    Lots of hiking and camping available nearby. Snowflex is a state of the art snowboarding, skiing and tubing facility. Lots of pick up games at the gym, many off-campus dining options nearby, a dollar theater, bike trails/running trails, very healthy environment.

    Food and Dining

    The food is average just like at every college campus. Much to choose from however.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is very fun. Everyone knows everyone and people care about you. You are very connected to the entire campus body.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics are superb. Classes are a combination of challenging questions, preparation before class, and professors who give you opportunities with real clients to add to your resume and get experience in your field during the school year. The professors in the Business Department all have had experience in the work place for many years before they began teaching at Liberty.

    Tips for prospective students

    As a prospective student I was bitter towards Liberty because I didn't want them to control my life. I came to realize, however that a campus where no one is staggering around drunk, walking back to your dorm is safe, and people care about your well-being is something I value. Once you are at Liberty, you forget about the rules because everyone is abiding by them, and it costs too much to break them.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University provides students with an education that is focused on intellectual, spiritual and physical development. Liberty provides state of the art educational facilities to give students the environment they need to succeed. The professors care about your home life, personal development, spiritual walk and want to help you succeed in all areas of your future career.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Well the football games are insane, the whole campus goes crazy- on Fridays before a home game, pretty much everyone wears red. The LU Monogram is classic Liberty University date night. The roof of Demoss is a popular spot for hangouts and dates. Liberty goes CRAZY for Christmas. There's the Christmas Tree Lighting, Christmas Caroling, Christmas Convo, Christmas Coffehouse and more. There's also a Spring Coffeehouse which is great.

    Bang for the buck

    It's a lot- but it's worth it.

    What to do for fun

    The football games are a blast! So are all the other sports games. The Tower Theater puts on six shows a year that are always fantastic so spend time there! David's Place you can play games and watch TV, Student Activities is always setting up events for students to go to, like Open Mic Night in the Tilley every other Monday.

    Food and Dining

    The food is great! The meal swipes/ flames cash system is great. It gives you the option to use flames cash for meals at Jazzmin's, Chick Fil A, Starbucks and more. However, that being said it's easy to run out of Flames Cash fast. Beware!

    Dorm Life

    I lived on the Annex this semester, which is an off campus dorm and it was alright. Next year the Annex will be gone, but my time there has been nice, my RA's are great the only thing I really have to complain about is how taking the bus in the morning was slightly inconvenient. The radiator in my room was also quite loud.

    Academic Rigor

    The work is the proper load, it challenges you to do your best and the Professors have a high standard of work ethic but also grace and understanding that help balance it out. The Professors are there to help you, as are the Academic Advisors and they will guide you as to the best ways to approach your work.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're thinking about going to Liberty, I would advise you to be aware of the rules before you attend. The rules really are not crazy and they are placed to protect students from harming themselves and others and to assure that students will have an enjoyable college experience. Review the rules of The Liberty Way and embrace them with an open mind, if you go in knowing what is expecting of you and accepting it openly you will enjoy all of your time at this school. Also, make sure you allow time in your study schedule for breaks for fun- between the Ski resort, the football games, the Tower Theater and everything else going on at Liberty, there's plenty of fun events to attend when you need a break from schoolwork.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University has a fantastic atmosphere, in which all students are encouraged to become champions in their field. All of the staff and faculty truly care about the students success and will push you to be the best that you can be. This school has many opportunities both academically and recreation- ally and you will enjoy every second if you hold onto it.

    Christmas Convocation is really funny and entertaining.

    What to do for fun

    For fun alot of people get involved in intramural sports. Also, there is snowflex which is cool because you can ski, snowboard, and go tubing for free if you are a student. They even have the equipment there for you if you need it. People also go skating when there is free skate at the Ice Center. Occasionally, they will also have movie nights which are pretty popular and usually show good movies.

    Food and Dining

    The dining options will increase once they open the new library. The rot has a lot of options although a lot of people say they don't like it. It does have good food there though and people complain because the quality of the food seems to go up during CFAW weekends. But that is the main dining hall. There is also doc's which I like, it's a burger joint. In addition there is a SubCo which is like Subway, and a Chick-fil-a express.

    Dorm Life

    Depending on what dorm you live in life on campus will vary. I stay on East Campus and I like it alot. You get your own bathroom that you only have to share with your roommates, there is no need to pay for laundry, and there is a kitchen so you wont need to buy a fridge unless you really want to. Also, the clubhouse on east is a good spot to watch sports.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers and classes are not a cakewalk. You will always have a decent length reading assignment and you have to stay organized to stay on top of things. The classes are challenging but if you stay organized it will be a big help.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you try out the different food spots before choosing your meal plan, and get involved in some type extra-curricular activity in your first semester so you can meet people and make friends.

    What to do for fun

    there are many activities that you will be able to find on campus. there is an artificial slope to snowboard or what not and that is called snowflex. there is also the monogram that has many different trails you can take to hike up. it is located on the campus. there are also concerts throughout the semesters and theater productions. there is a fully equipped gym with 8 basketball courts, indoor and outdoor pools, two indoor soccer fields, one indoor track field, a weight room, a cardio room, and two other rooms that have a little bit of everything. there are also classes like zumba and cycling and aerobics. there are also sports games throughout the year. near the campus there is a dollar theater and the school also has a skatepark behind the theater. there are many cafes near by and many orchards that you can go to with friends and just relax and have fun

    Food and Dining

    there's a chik-fil-a on campus and a dunkin donuts and a starbucks. the main dining halls' food is not that great, but not too bad. there are two sub connections and that is like sodexho's version of subway. the campus is still adding more options for food and dining. you have meal swipes, points (act like cash) and flames cash (cash you can also use on some off campus dining areas)

    Dorm Life

    dorm life can either make or break your year. don't let small things get to you about your roommate. everyone is different and it is unavoidable. living on a dorm can be a lot of fun and a blessing. on a hall you will be held accountable even if you're not looking for it. but there is also a great blessing in having people encourage you when you feel stressed and having people pray for you on a daily basis. it is very likely that you will find a one or two people that will be life friends. depending on where on campus you live, the rule of the opposite sex in the building is different. the only thing i would say that isn't so positive about on campus living would be hall meetings every tuesday night that is mandatory and at 10pm. there is a checkout rule for those who want to stay at a friend's house or another friend's room not on the hall. the same goes for letting someone not on the hall sleep over in your room.

    Academic Rigor

    the academic rigor here really depends on your major. most majors though do have a capstone class that will be used as a determining factor for graduation. most of the general education classes required here are pretty easy. once the core classes start going up, it is most likely you will be sleeping less and less. don't let that bother you, it is almost the same thing at any other school you go to.

    Tips for prospective students

    it is important to get involved on your hall. it will provide you with friends and there will always be something going on if you need a break from your studies. being involved in clubs and intramural sports is a good way to distress. order school books on amazon, bookstore is too expensive. enough said. walking is not always bad. the buses run to all parts of campus, but don't depend on them. the campus is always beautiful anyway, so take in the scenery and some fresh air.

    Campus Safety

    LUPD is an awesome service to everyone here on campus. I have never had a bad encounter with a police officer here on campus. There are always willing to help, whether it be an escort back to the dorm, or to help you search for a lost bike.

    Clubs and Activities

    Liberty really has it nailed down when it comes to social life on campus. As a student here, it seems like there's always something happening on the weekends. Which is awesome for us, because we like to get out and do something when we're not in class. Liberty frequently hosts Movie Nights, concerts, Open Mic nights, Game Nights, Scavenger Hunts and many other fun events for students to participate in throughout the year.

    What to do for fun

    Liberty has been designed so that if you want to do something fun, you don't have to leave campus. We have an ice skating rink, a rock climbing wall, a pool, a campus clubhouse with a rentable movie theater inside, ping pong, a huge gym with many options of athletics, and I could go on. The most popular attraction here is our Snowflex Mountain, which overlooks campus. Snowflex is a very unique mountain, as it is only one of two in the world. This mountain is a year-round ski/snowboard slope. That's right, that means that you can head up the mountain in May and go snowboarding to de-stress before finals. The mountain also has two tubing runs, which are frequently used as well. Snowflex has many instructors ready to help you improve, and any student can rent all and any equipment they need for free.

    Food and Dining

    Liberty has many, many food options. The most well-known eating place on campus is the Reber-Thomas Dining Hall, known to students as The Rot. This is the main cafeteria on campus, and has many different choices for food, which is why a majority of people on campus eat there. Scattered around campus we have other options, such as Sub Connection (which is similar to Subway), Bistro (which sells flatbread sandwiches), Doc's Diner (a diner with burgers and other diner-like food), a Chikfila, and coffee shops. Every food place that I have tried has been super good.

    Dorm Life

    There's four options of dorm living here at LU: Circle, The Hill, East, and the Annex. All of these options are great in their own way, but one thing they all have in common is the life. Each area of dorms on campus has its own style, complete with awesome RA's and each person on the hall is from a different area, meaning that you can meet a lot of different people, leading to lifelong friendships. Each dorm has a brother and a sister dorm, which you do things with throughout the year like tailgate, go to meals together, and other events that are planned by your RA's. These events can be a movie night, a costume party, or even a trip off campus to do something in Lynchburg or the surrounding cities.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes here at Liberty are awesome. There's so many majors to choose from, everyone is bound to find something that they're looking for here. Each class is taught by a great teacher, some of which are known worldwide. The classes are all set up the same way, with tests and quizzes (and sometimes papers) and then a final exam at the end. But in the midst of studying, your teachers are always there for you. They make the classes enjoyable, along with being willing to meet outside of class to assist you.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a place that is truly one of a kind. With great academic classes and an abundance of majors to choose from, along with state of the art equipment to use, your time in the classroom is well spent. But with the classes, also comes the social life, which LU has truly nailed.

    Campus Safety

    This is probably one of the best things about Liberty, especially with all of the gun scares. Liberty has there own police force that you can see on campus 24/7, and if you ever get lost or just need a ride to get somewhere you can just call them up.

    Bang for the buck

    The program's at Liberty make it seem like the cost should be through the roof but, Liberty's undergrad tuition rank in the bottom third of all private collages, and 96% of Liberty students receive financial aid assistance during @011-2012.

    What to do for fun

    What don't they have for fun. Liberty has a year round ski and tubing hill, ice skating, movie theater, shopping, challenge courses, bow hunting, motocross/atv, trail races, camping and a lake. Liberty also has every sport that you can possibly think of with indoor options.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Liberty is amazing they have everything, non allergenic, Italian, stir fry, salad and dessert bar, every day eating like grilled cheese and burgers. The menu changes every day which is nice because you could get bored quick. For the seating they have booths everywhere along with some regular tables. Liberty also has other places you can eat this is just the main dining area where you can get meals three times a day.

    Dorm Life

    Liberty University is currently in the process of building new dorms and will be done by Fall 2014. The dorm that I stayed in for CFAW was East. This is set up like an apartment with the exception of having three rooms with up to three people in each. They have a kitchen, laundry, living room and bathrooms with showers in each room. East is across a highway but, Liberty put in a cool tunnel that runs directly under the highway and goes straight to the campus.

    Academic Rigor

    I'm not too sure on this one, I was not able to sit in on a class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Liberty has many scholarship opportunities for students and if you are truly interested in attending you should get in your confirmation deposit asap, because you have the opportunity to receive a $12,000 scholarship spread out over four years. Also, just by completing the four A's of admission's early you can get entered into scholarship's from $10,000 to a full ride.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a wonderful school, even though it is a little bit over whelming at first, at the end of CFAW it really started to feel like home and I didn't want to leave. At Liberty everyone there is so kind, if some of the teachers saw you standing or looking around they would come up to you and ask if there was anything you were looking for. The location of Liberty is just perfectly placed, it is surrounded by mountains, it is absolutely beautiful!

    They have snowflex, where you can ski, snowboard, an tube. They have a iceskating rink and a skate park. Liberty has an equestrian center and huge sport and gym complex and they also have a really nice library. They have rock climbing and student activities weekly.

    Food and Dining

    I would just say regular college food-every one gets excited to go home for some home cooked dinners!

    The curfew is the only thing i dont really like, the rooms are spacious and even the cheaper dorms have two pretty big closets!

    Convocation is mandatory every MWF its not church but it is uplifting. Every semester after freshman year students are required to complete 20 hours of community service but all things considered, it is not too bad.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is worth the price. They are non-profit so everything goes back into the university. They are always building something new and it is a beautiful campus. We have a all year round tubing/snowboarding mountain as well as a new 2 million dollar library being built, so yeah. Its worth the 20,000 a semester.

    What to do for fun

    Lynchburg is a very dead town, everything closes around 9. Kids here are on two opposite spectrum. They either party too hard or stay in their rooms and because there are no co ed dorms, or cable, options are limited. Student activities tries their best, but college kids don't really want to spent their weekends playing bingo or watching Cars 2.

    Food and Dining

    It is actually a lot better than people give it credit for. No, it is not your mom's home cooked meals but for college, it isn't THAT bad.

    Dorm Life

    Dorms are single sex, you have a curfew and strict RAs that love giving reps. However, you can pick where you want to stay on campus, so that's a plus.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your major some classes are harder than others, obviously but Liberty is still pretty new so all the professors are passionate about all levels of learning. Do not expect Geneds to be easy.

    Tips for prospective students

    Liberty is a place where you need to take your education seriously. If you are looking for a school where you can slide by and party everyday, Liberty is not for you. Liberty is pushing to be an Ivy league school and will not stop until said goal is accomplished. There are a few rules, but with the students well being in mind. Professors are very available and the staff and student body are pretty friendly. It should not be hard to make friends, you would actually have to go out of your way to not make friends here.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is an excellent college in regards to education, athletics and social life. We are avid believers in being dominant in all collegiate areas such as the above, they do an awesome job making sure their students are fully prepared for entering the real world. It is a great college.

    NONE AT ALL

    Bang for the buck

    Although Liberty is private, and therefore more expensive they offer a lot of scholarships and are very helpful in finding ways to help you pay for your school.

    What to do for fun

    There are always events happening on campus. Concerts, free movies, ice skating, plays/ musicals, sporting events. You name it, Liberty has it.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria food is tough to get used to. Some days the options are great and other days you find nothing appealing. They always have a variety and you are bound to find something you like.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is something every new college student should experience. You meet a lot of people and learn very important qualities such as learning how to live with others, respect, time management, tidiness, and of course it's fun. At least live in the dorms freshmen year. I would recommend freshmen and sophomore year. Be open to rooming with anyone because you may meet you're best friend!

    Academic Rigor

    As at most colleges, it does depend on your major how much work you have. Overall Liberty has a good amount of work. Some nights you will have free time, other nights all you will be doing is work. Manage your time and you will be great!

    Tips for prospective students

    Do the best that you can in your freshmen classes. Those are the GPA boosters. They may not be enjoyable because they do not relate to your major, but it is the easiest year you will have.

    Campus Safety

    The campus police don't fool around. Seriously, they are on top of things. LU is a very safe campus. Everyone looks out for each other and if you ever need help, just let someone know.

    Greek Life

    There is no greek life at LU.

    Clubs and Activities

    You got an interest/ hobby? LU's got ya covered. We even have our own paintball team!

    Great for these types of students

    People who want to grow more in their faith, but still have freedom to live their own life. LU is not as strict as people like to make it out to be and none of the rules are unreasonable.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Ring By Spring (or your money back) A joke about engagement at LU. Students at LU are attractive, smart and godly. There is a high chance you will find The One either at LU or through an LU activity.

    Bang for the buck

    It's a tad bit on the pricey side, but the facilities here are amazing, and most of the fun things (eg. Snowflex and Horseback riding) are *free to LU students. *Included in your tuition so that you don't have to ever worry about saving money to enjoy.

    What to do for fun

    Student Activities has you covered. From Dorm Olympics to Movie Nights, Kayaking down the river to moonlight horseback rides. During October, LU opens up Scaremare, a haunted house run by LU. Sporting events are common and the gym is huge. Starbucks at Barnes and Noble is always a calming way to spend the afternoon, or if you are looking for adventure you can go to the Snowflex and tube or snowboard for as long as you want for free. Horseback lessons and riding is also free, in fact, most of the activities are either free or super discounted for LU students.

    Food and Dining

    There is a wide range of food selections to choose from at Liberty University. The main food place is the Reber Thomas Dining Hall aka The Rot, which offers Stir Fry, Taco Bar, Pizza, Hamburgers, Fish, Fries, Salad Bars, Sandwiches, Allergy products and much more. There is also a sub connection on campus and a Starbucks. All around campus there are more areas to get sandwiches, sushi, salads etc. for an on the go meal. The Annex has a Mini-Rot which is a more limited selection of food than the Rot, but a bit higher quality and fresher.

    Dorm Life

    Roommates could be a problem, especially if you are put with a rule-breaker and feel like you have to keep secrets for them. However, if this happens, room changes are usually accepted. The dorms are easy to keep clean and to ensure that the dorms are clean, room checks are made Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The dorms are comfortable, not cramped and don't smell terrible.

    Academic Rigor

    All the professors are well experienced in their field, many of them have worked in high positions of what they are teaching. The majority of them know what they are teaching and have had years of experience teaching that subject.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't worry too much about the rules. Even if they seem like they are very strict when reading them in print, the only rule you ever have to worry about too much is the dress code, and even then, the dress code isn't too far fetched. If you are worried about housing and roommate issues, the process to get a room change is simple and usually is processed and approved within less than five days (if it is a good reason). The faculty normally does not budge on missed assignments, but the professors do their best to remind you of upcoming assignments.

    Great for these types of students

    Liberty is great for students that like structure, or are in need of structure. There are rules such as curfew and a reasonable dress code, but since everyone around you also abides by them, it is not a big deal. Students wanting to grow in their Christian faith will also benefit here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Ring by Spring is an epidemic here, as mostly everyone wants to be engaged or married before graduation.

    What to do for fun

    There are many options for entertainment on campus, including a year-round snow mountain, a student center, and an outdoor facility with a lake. Our student activities program also provides many activities like movie nights on the weekends, especially in the absence of sports games, which are also widely attended by students.

    There are many options for food on campus, including Chick-fil-a, a Bistro sandwich place, and a sub place. The dining hall is not always the best, but whose is?

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty University has exactly what students are looking for in their major. My favorite thing about academics at Liberty is how willing the professors are to work with the students, no matter how large the class is.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students should look for scholarships so that they can stay in school, as Liberty's scholarships decrease per year. On the lines of campus life, students should be as involved as possible in order to get the entire benefits of the school. Liberty has a lot to offer, but the students have to do the work of deciding what to get involved in.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a school unlike any other, with incredible opportunities and an extremely unique atmosphere. Students looking for a Christian environment and education based on the Bible love Liberty. To sum it up, Liberty teaches like a Bible college but has the perks of a large university.

    This University is great for students who graduated from smaller student populace high schools and private christian schools. It is also a place where you can get the opportunity to build a relationship with God without others making fun of you for your beliefs.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I found their idea of a tailgate party was to gather around the pool areas and barbecue as where I grew up it meant getting together in the parking lot of the event and barbecuing or eating packed picnic lunches.

    Bang for the buck

    Considering it was cheaper to come to Liberty University than stay in-state and offered scholarship assistance it was the only choice for me.

    What to do for fun

    There is a lot to do on campus, as well as, surrounding the campus. The campus offers sports activities, clubs, support groups for a variety of interests. The local area also offers a large amount of historical information and sites to visit.

    Food and Dining

    The eating experience has been exceptionally impressive offering a wide variety of options for meals daily. The Flame Card is a great asset for budgeting and deciding where to eat.

    Dorm Life

    The dormitory rooms are extremely small, especially for two or three females per room with little storage space. Although the housing office claims to take into consideration personal compatability, it is my experience that they failed miserably in this department. Also, be prepared for hall meetings late at nite and room checks at midnight.

    Academic Rigor

    I feel the academic rigor is of a high quality and the professors demand excellence for all assigned work. The professors also are willing to assist students in improving their schools or recommending tutoring labs.

    Tips for prospective students

    Pack efficiently and leave the shorts and short style dresses at home, they are not allowed under the dress code. Prior to committing, come visit the campus and make sure you are suited for your proposed academic and living environment.

    In three sentences

    The academic classes offered are of a diverse nature with excellent professors. The campus is a small populace which allows a better teacher to student ratio. It is definitely an extremely conservative campus which requires modest appearance for both genders.

    Their staff is very helpful and friendly. If you have any problems, they try their hardest to help you. They also have many degrees available for online students, which is a plus for anyone wanting to do distance education.

    Campus Safety

    The school takes great pains to keep the campus safe for their students. They do a great job!

    Bang for the buck

    Most Christian Schools are either very expensive or, they are reasonable and don't accept financial aid. Liberty is a great combination of excellent education, beautifully laid out campus, one of the top Christian colleges, they accept financial aid and it's price reflects it's desire to make Christian education available to anyone.

    Food and Dining

    Excellent!

    Dorm Life

    I have heard from friends who are resident students, that the dorm life is great and is within walking distance of the main campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are taught well and create a setting where you, as the student, are able to experience real life situations in your chosen career. The online classes are set up well, allowing the student to access classes and other information easily. Webinairs are offered to help you understand the vast amount of resources and help that is available to you as an online student.

    Tips for prospective students

    Start the application process very early, and ask lot's of questions even if they seem unimportant. When ordering books make sure all required courses are actually required for your particular degree or certificate.

    In three sentences

    I have been in the application process from May-July, which isn't what I call easy admission. I was not informed that a certain required materials were not applicable to my specific degree. Each person I have talked to has tried to be helpful, but lacked telling me certain information regarding my major.

From time to time there has been a needed for an update in the test questions because some answers have been marked incorrect that were actually correct. Once brought to the Instructor's attention it issue was corrected.

    Tips for prospective students

    A word of encouragement for the students would be to be up front with your Instructor. That is the only way they can advise you of your options. If you are in need of help because of extenuating circumstances let them know as soon as possible. There are options available that will be of help so you do not have to drop your class.

    Campus Safety

    The university has their own police department that patrols the entire campus night and day. I never feel unsafe there because there are always officers around.

    Greek Life

    None at all. No frats and sororities are allowed.

    Clubs and Activities

    They have an endless amount of clubs and organized stuff to do. Anything from Hockey to the Snowboard team. You can snowboard anytime you want to for free and not to mention the debate team is the top in the country.

    Great for these types of students

    It's great for christians, conservatives, music majors, business majors, and pre law majors.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    They have a campus wide chapel service three times a week that is mandatory.

    Bang for the buck

    Bang for the buck? It's a private school so it's spendier than a state school, but I think the University does a really good job trying to help students get jobs right out of college. Overall I give it 4 stars.

    What to do for fun

    This university is in a very boring town so there isn't much to do off campus in the town. But it is close to the blue ridge mountains so there is an abundance of hikes and outdoor activities very close to you at all times. The school itself has a year round snow/ski slope that students have free access to! They have atv riding, paintball, horseback riding, intramural sports, and student activities events such as concerts. No partying on campus at all because it's not allowed. But there is a lot of off campus parties if you want to get down. 4 star rating for fun.

    Food and Dining

    The food offered in the cafeteria is not very health conscious. Generally they serve southern style dishes. They do always have a gluten free health bar open but the variety is not very good. However the campus has much more to offer than just the main cafeteria. Students have access to multiple Subways on campus that they can use their meal plan for. Overall I give the food a rating of 3 stars.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is different from most Universities. There are no Co-ed halls, in fact, Guys and Girls are never allowed to go into each other's dorms. This makes it not very ideal and a lot of students hope that someday they will lift this rule and allow open dorm hours at least. But the community that they build into your hall is really good. I've never seen such brotherhood/sisterhood in a dorm before. As far as the quality and size of the dorms, it varies. The main campus dorms are your typical brick block unit dorms with tile floors and brick walls, but the university also has apartment style dorms and an old quality inn that they bought as well to house more students. Overall I give it a 2 star rating though.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends on your major. Things like the ministry degrees are a lot easier than say the pre med or pre law degrees. Overall it's about the average amount of academic expectations for a university, so I'll rate it at 3 stars.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get into the mindset of following rules because Liberty University has a code of conduct that students must agree to follow if they live on campus. In example would be that students have a midnight curfew on week nights that cannot be broken without a monetary fine. If you aren't a christian there isn't really a point in coming to Liberty because all the students, faculty, and University board in evangelical christian.

    In three sentences

    It's a conservative christian university that has strict guidlines. The people are very friendly and polite. The campus is very large and set in the beautiful virginia hills.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is on the more expensive side, but it is totally worth it. I couldn't imagine going to college anywhere else. They provide so much for their students and they continue to add more. There's no way I could describe it all.

    What to do for fun

    You essential never have to leave campus. SnowFlex-snowless ski slope. ATV, hiking biking and horseback riding trails. NCAA Division I sporting events. theater and movie nights. Coffeehouse event per semester, open mic and concerts

    Food and Dining

    The food is decent to be college life and not home cooked. They have many different options available throughout campus. And if you aren't satisfied with what is on campus, there are more than enough places off campus that take Flames Cash- Liberty dollars.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are in excellent condition and there are many different options, located different places throughout campus. The administration also recognize the need for up to date and better living conditions and they're currently building new and even better dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are tough and very up to date in their particular fields. They are very understanding and genuinely care about their students. They want the very best, but won't tolerate horsing around.

    Tips for prospective students

    It is a large campus, right in the middle of town. They've got some restrictions and rules, but they aren't that bad. Many are logical with our best interests at the heart of it. Faculty are more than willing to help, but expect the students to live and do for themselves.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a Christian university and it lives up to it's reputation. Liberty doesn't just talk the talk but walks the walk and is willing to do anything to make their students happy. Everyone I have met loves God and wants the best experience for us.

    Very affordable and a quality education.

    Academic Rigor

    For those who are not of a religious faith or differ from Christianity, the prospect of being forced to learn about religion can be challenging. However, bare in mind if you do choose this University you do so at your own choice. Beggars can't be choosers.

    Tips for prospective students

    Ensure when you decide you apply to Liberty University that you know it is a Christian School. Whatever your beliefs are the staff and students are highly professional and are ready to assist you in your higher education goals.

    In three sentences

    As a Veteran of the armed forces I will say that Liberty University is one of the most military friend schools out there. And what I mean by that they treat veterans as if they were still active duty; tuition and savings. A quality school at an affordable price.

    Extroverts and introverts-christians!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    SNOWFLEX!! Where you go to ski, snowboard and go tubing!

    Bang for the buck

    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?

    Dorm life is amazing because of the friendships that you will build as you come in contact with people. It is a family-based student body who is inspired to make anyone feel welcomed.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty university's academic level is pretty high, but it is worth all the work that is being put in because it helps to build a more stronger and firm work ethic to push one self into success while having to work against any challenges that may arise.

    Be open to meet new people, Be adventurous to enjoy and experience college life, but most of all, be driven to set goals and accomplish them no matter what.

    The dollar value is great. I am also blessed because they help out military students and the classes are priced well. I feel like my dollars are going where they need to.

    What to do for fun

    Due to not going to college on campus I do not have the pleasure of having fun with students around there.

    Food and Dining

    I do not live on campus or even in Virginia to rate the food or dining on campus or near the campus.

    Dorm Life

    I am not a current on campus student, so I have no way to rate the dorm life there. Although, the reviews on their website are sufficient to explain that it is a good dorm availability.

    Academic Rigor

    There is some rigor in prompting for certain assignments to be completed on time. The classses have been simple but complex to give my brain a good workout in mental and academic abilities. I feel some classes could present a little more challenge.

    Tips for prospective students

    New students have the ability to not only enhance their career style adjusted around a Bible based work criteria. Liberty may be a Christian college but it has many other degree options. THe best part is that nearly every degree is available for online classes.

    Campus Safety

    The campus police, LUPD, make their presence constantly known and although the campus is open to the public, students should be able to feel safe within reason while on campus.

    Greek Life

    Liberty does not advertise Greek life, but you will make friends and have fun regardless!

    Great for these types of students

    On-fire Christians and those who thrive in large crowds and huge social environments need to seriously consider Liberty University.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Like every campus, the school has its own special traditions. Students can go tunneling, paint The Rock, or find their Ring by Spring. You'll simply have to come to the school to find out just what all the fun traditions are all about.

    Bang for the buck

    All things considered, Liberty is a very affordable private Christian college. In comparison to equally sized and endowed schools, Liberty could be considered cheap. Of course, in comparison to a state college, the school is pricey, but it is entirely worth the upgrade.

    What to do for fun

    Lynchburg is not necessarily an exciting town, but Liberty makes up for it by offering something to do constantly. It seems like every night, one can attend a theater production, a sports event, or a cultural experience. The Student Activities team does a great job in putting all kinds of interesting events together. Sporty types can join an intramural team or spend time in the gym. For outdoorsy adventurers, Liberty has its own ski slope and ATVs that students can rent. The hiking trails are accessible and beautiful as well. Any type of student can figure out something awesome to do, despite the tight rules on alcohol and parties.

    Food and Dining

    Many students like to complain about the food in the dining hall, the Rot, but as a whole, Liberty administration makes it evident that they want students to have an enjoyable variety of food. From Chick-Fil-A to a sub shop to smoothies, any craving can be filled by the meal options. It can be difficult to grasp the intricacies of the meal plans, but planning ahead to use the points and swipes reasonably can be a worthwhile venture.

    Dorm Life

    The leadership structure of the dorms is unbeatable! You will always have a leader figure in your life to help guide you through the tough college experiences. Living on a hall with 70 new friends is the chance of a lifetime, and the dorms at Liberty are comfortable and fun. What is NOT fun is getting caught by the strict room cleanliness standards!

    Academic Rigor

    The lower-level, required classes are set to cater to the average student. If you are below average, you may struggle. If you are above average, you will be bored. However, once you become a junior and you move into your upper-level studies in your specific field, you will find dedicated professors who will challenge you and care about you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved in the groups and activities that interest you - because I guarantee that something will catch your attention. Make friends with common interests and learn all you can. But never be distracted by extracurricular activities at the expense of your studies! School, then play.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is exciting, rigorous, and massive. The size of the school offers a wealth of opportunities that cannot be offered at smaller schools, and the campus is always abuzz with something interesting. This school is, to put it simply, memorable.

    I am a military online student so Liberty fits my needs perfectly. The reduced tuition for military helps my finances significantly and they are always very flexible to help meet my needs. The education and assignments are well planned to facilitate learning. Online teachers are very good, provide good resources, and answer emails promptly. I really really love the Christian aspect of the school. It is refreshing to be allowed, nay encouraged, to include Christian principles and teachings in my schoolwork.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are challenging enough to provide a strong learning opportunity but not too difficult for the schoolwork to take up all of my free time.

    Tips for prospective students

    This is an excellent choice for Christian students looking for an education that encompasses more than just a worldview perspective. The admissions office is very helpful with providing what information is needed. The online website is also very valuable when researching educational opportunities at this university.

    Liberty University is great for students who are genuinely interested in growing deeper in their faith in Jesus Christ and who desire to make long-lasting friendships.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The Snowflex is unique to Liberty as the only year-round slope in the U.S. Students love going skiing, snowboarding, or tubing down it any day they choose!

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty offers many scholarships that are available to students, so the price of this school is very low compared to most other private schools. For students looking for a school that nourishes their Christian school, no other school can compare to Liberty.

    What to do for fun

    There are so many fun activities to do on campus at Liberty. The gym is open to all students, which includes a weight room, an aerobic room, basketball courts, volleyball courts, and many fitness classes. There's also a hockey rink where students can go ice skating, and Liberty offers many intramural sports. Also, Liberty has a Snowflex, which is the only year-round ski slope in the U.S. Students can go skiing, snowboarding, or snow tubing any day of the year! Liberty is also located near a lake and many mountains, and students enjoy canoeing, kayaking, or hiking on the trails.

    Food and Dining

    Every meal plan at Liberty costs the same, but students are free to choose from several options. They could choose more meal swipes and less Flames Cash, which can be used at local restaurants around Lynchburg, or they could choose more Flames Cash and fewer meal swipes. Meal swipes are used in the cafeterias and dining halls, which provide students with a wide variety of food from which they can choose.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is centered on Biblical principles. The RAs on each hall encourage students to get to know one another, and the prayer leaders on each hall lead the prayer life for students. Every student at Liberty is prayed for daily and many opportunities are available for students to study the Bible with their dorm mates. Deep friendships are thus often formed.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty offers challenging academic classes and students can really choose to push themselves as hard as they would like to. There is an Honors Program that offers more difficult classes and extra projects for students who sincerely wish to challenge themselves. Students can choose how many credits to take each semester (between 12 and 18) and can choose which classes to take, so the students are the ones who are deciding who rigorous they want their academic experience at Liberty to be.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone to meet new people and make new friends. The large majority of people there are super friendly and they are likely looking for a friend just as much as you are. Also, set up an agreement with your roommate as soon as possible, going over things like quiet hours, cleaning schedule, what you both can borrow without asking and what you can borrow after asking, etc. It'll save a lot of conflict later on in the year.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a wonderful place for those students who are passionate about their faith in Jesus Christ and who seek to grow deeper in their relationship with Him. There are plenty of opportunities for students to learn more about their faith in the classroom and then to praise their Lord by worshiping Him during convocation three times a week and by praying with other students who share their values. Plus, Liberty has a beautiful campus with lots of fun activities in which students can participate.

    Liberty has a quality and accommodating police system. I have never felt threatened by any experiences on campus, and I know that the police are never too far away to help if I were in need of them.

    Greek Life

    Liberty is unique in that it does not offer sororities. This is an asset to the school because it decreases segregation and encourages campus community.

    Clubs and Activities

    Liberty has no shortage of clubs and activities. Whether it involves intramural sports, art/design, choirs, or snowboarding, Liberty has something to offer for everybody.

    Great for these types of students

    Liberty is the perfect place for any student who is looking for not only an incredible college experience and education, but for a catalyst for their future. For any student looking to find or strengthen their relationship with God, this is the place to go. There is no better place to learn about the Lord than at Liberty. For any student who wants a better vision of what to do with their life, Liberty offers that vision to be the best you can be. Homeschooled, public schooled, or private schooled, there is a place for every kind of student here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week, every single on-campus student gathers in an arena for Convocation, where we listen to world-class speakers, pastors, authors, musicians, actors, etc. It is an incredible time of learning, worship, and growing of the community. This time alone has taught me more than I could ever explain. It is a privilege to listen to the speakers and reap from the wisdom that they share. The time of worship with the entire campus is incredibly special and encouraging.

    Bang for the buck

    I don't believe Liberty lacks anything. I can honestly say that Liberty is exactly what it says it is and more. Every dollar paid for towards this school is worth spending. You don't just got to Liberty to receive an education, you go to learn about life. They take their mission statement extremely seriously, which is to train champions for Christ. Liberty does not waste the four years that they have each student for. They actively seek to challenge, grow, and encourage each student to improve their chances of success in the future.

    What to do for fun

    Most anyone would consider Liberty the world's most exciting university. There is never a dull moment on campus! Liberty houses Snowflex, a non-snow snowboarding slope, a state-of-the-art gym/sports facility, a wonderful student center, as well as multiple coffeeshops, bookstores, and hang-out spaces. The construction that the campus is currently undergoing is going to drastically improve the opportunities and activities.

    Food and Dining

    Liberty strives to provide quality dining experiences for every student. They are very attentive to special dieting needs, and will personally (and cheerfully) work with any student's requests. Liberty offers a wide variety of food to please any student's preferences.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life on campus is one of Liberty's greatest assets. Each hall is its own family, comprised of a pyramid system of leadership that leaves no student forgotten. Each Tuesday there is a hall meeting in which everyone comes together to discuss campus announcements, which is then followed by a bible study comprised of roughly five students. Dorm life is controlled, yet exciting and fun.

    Academic Rigor

    Liberty University considers education of utmost importance. They provide the most knowledgeable and experienced professors, and the classes they offer are challenging, useful, and interesting. I have felt the perfect balance of difficulty and ability to learn and understand in my classes and I know that my professors take my education just as seriously as they would their own.

    Tips for prospective students

    Welcome change and don't be afraid of a new adventure! College is a time to discover who you are and make lasting friends and memories. Learn to balance education, sleep, and relationships, and don't hesitate to talk to your professors--they are there to help and guide you. This is the time in your life to secure and strengthen your relationship with God. Get involved with the right people and don't take convocation and the rules for granted. They are completely for your benefit! Embrace the way of life at Liberty and you will never regret it.

    Attending Liberty University is one of the single best decisions I have ever made.

    Food and Dining

    The food is okay. Sodexo is the main provider and maker of the food and it could be worse. The best place to get food is at the mini-rot, but people who do not live at the Annex or the Quality Inn have to take a fifteen minute bus ride to get there.

    Dorm Life

    Living in the dorm is one of the best parts about Liberty University. The student leadership there is wonderful and they truly care about the students that live in the dorms. There are no co-ed dorms and I love that. There isn't that awkwardness on the hall when both boys and girls live on the same hall.

    What to do for fun

    So much to do on Liberty's campus! Equine center, year round snowflex complex for snowboarding, skiing, and tubing year round, ice skating, movie theater, they have it all!

    Food and Dining

    They have cheap quick stuff and great meals as well. If you can't find it on campus, everything you can think of is within 5 minutes of campus.

    Dorm Life

    Amazing new dorms give everyone the space and privacy they need.

    Academic Rigor

    Challenging but manageable.

    Tips for prospective students

    Liberty has everything you need!

    Liberty is an amazing university with amazing opportunities.

    Bang for the buck

    I know that in order for me to afford tuition, I will be applying for jobs on campus like an office- assistant. They have several other jobs that work around your schedule and contribute to your loans. It's a great way to help lower student loans and stay on campus all the while.

    What to do for fun

    They have a huge fitness area, including rock-climbing, a soccer/recreational field, skiing, tubing, and snowboarding at snow flex, indoor ice skating rink, discount movie theater, mall, shopping areas, bike and hiking trails... Basically, no time for partying!-which is a good thing :) There is a mass amount of entertainment and activities to do there.

    Food and Dining

    They have so many food options which I really liked, their dining hall was very large and had just about every type of food, to fit the needs of every student. I loved the healthy options as well. Off-campus, there are a ton of fast food places and other restaurants, in other words, food should be no problem.

    Dorm Life

    I stayed in the circle, which is fairly far away from most places but I really liked my roommates and I felt right at home there. It was great to experience college life and I'm sure everyone won't have a problem fitting in and settling in a spacious dorm

    Academic Rigor

    The price is fairly high but the good news is that they offer multiple scholarships and they are all for suggesting outside scholarships and other financial aid. If it is God's will, anything is possible and he will provide one way or another. There Financial advisers do their best to help meet the needs of an individual.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking to be accepted by those around you or just want to fit in with other Christians, then this is the right college for you. It is not just a religious school, it is all about maintaining and growing in your relationship with Christ. It's a great college to meet true Christian friends

    In three sentences

    It is superb for Christians! The students are Christ-like and very friendly to others. The campus is huge and contains everything one could imagine, from food to fitness to recreation to relaxation, it's all there!

    Campus Safety

    It's pretty safe, except for the drivers...... not many good drivers in Lynchburg.

    Clubs and Activities

    Again so many i can't even begin to say. I will say however if you are great at a club sport or really involved in a cause you can gain sponsors who'll help you pay for school.

    Great for these types of students

    The campus is great for active and outgoing students who don't need drugs or alcohol to enjoy themselves.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Unusual traditions for guys would be that most of the men don't shave, yet are into the whole hipster scene. So the country world and i guess you could say city life have clashed in that area. An unusual spot would be the beaver dam near the Walmart.

    Bang for the buck

    average yearly cost is 30,000 but no one ever actually pays the full price. The school actually pays for most of everyone's tuition so it shouldn't be a problem for some or most people.

    What to do for fun

    I can't even explain what there is to do, I've visited the campus a total of three times (three days each time) and I still haven't done everything there is to do. Honestly you should never be bored at Liberty.

    Food and Dining

    Food's alright, If you ever hear the cafeteria referred to as the Rott it's not because the food's bad, but because it use to be catered by the Marriott hence the tt.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm Life varies on where/who you stay with. The hill for example is a very close nit community everyone interacts with each other and enjoy having fun, it's sort of the family setting. East Campus dorms are mainly for those who prefer peace and quite (seniors, ROTC program, Athletes, etc). The circle is being rebuilt at the moment so I have no Idea about that. And the annex buildings are mainly for those who'd rather live off campus. And the Quad is sort of like East Campus living (with less amenities) mixed together with the hill.

    Academic Rigor

    Although the school holds high standards I've noticed that the students still have time to relax. I believe this is because only 12 credits per semester are required to be considered a full time student; that's 3-5 less credits than most Colleges or Universities.

    Tips for prospective students

    Although I haven't started classes yet I would recommend attending one of Liberty's College for a Weekend, or CFAW, events. If you haven't made up your mind on whether to attend Liberty the CFAW will definitely help.

    In three sentences

    The school has a clean and Christian Atmosphere. There are plenty of outdoor activities to keep the body and mind occupied: An idle mind is the devils workshop- HG Bohn's.

    Campus Safety

    Liberty University is a very safe campus! The LUPD are very friendly but do their job keeping us students safe from harm. The campus is also secure because their are badge access gates and all the dorms are accessed only through a badge or key.

    Greek Life

    Liberty University does not have any type of Greek life.

    Great for these types of students

    Liberty University is great for students who are looking for good academics and not going to college just to party or break free from home. Students who are serious about their career and finding lifelong friends will find that Liberty is a good fit.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a building called the Vine's center where we have Convocation (a chapel service of sorts) three times a week. The University does a great job getting well known, prolific speakers to impart words of wisdom to us the future generation.

    Bang for the buck

    Liberty is not incredibly cheap, but they are very generous with scholarships and they have great academics.

    What to do for fun

    I enjoy hanging out with friends, hiking, watching movies, playing games, and many more activities.

    Food and Dining

    The food is very good especially at Sub-Connection, and the Bistro. These both provide excellent food!

    Dorm Life

    Liberty's campus is non-smoking, and a dry campus. This is very nice because you don't have to smell or expose yourself to second hand smoke on the hall. The halls have quiet hours which is nice for people who want to go to sleep early. The leaderships on the halls do a good job uniting the hall.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends of the program of study or major. Nursing is a very rigorous program because they are preparing students to save peoples lives one day.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students coming to Liberty University should come prepared to Work hard and strive to do their best. It helps to talk with or make contact with your future room mate before you even arrive on campus.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University has done a wonderful job at having a high standard for academic excellence. The Nursing Program is well know for being rigorous and the nurses that graduate from the program are very well qualified. Overall Liberty is teaching their students to be young professionals, as well as qualified individuals.

    Academic Rigor

    Even with the online program I feel like I'm getting a challenge for my money. These classes are only 8 weeks long and are suggested to only take five at a time max. That is because even with just four your doing around 30-40 assignments a week.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your research as well as check to make sure this is the right place for you. Also make yourself familiar with the Financial Aid Process because they are a little slow when it comes to that.

    In three sentences

    This is a great school even for a online student like me. The cost is amazing, and was 50% cheaper then my old college. Even as a online student I feel as though I matter to them, and the best part is that this is not a small school either.

    Dorm life varies depending on where you decide to live on campus. That's right, you actually get to choose where you would like to live (first come, first serve of course). You can choose anything from hall-style with more noise and community or apartment-style with less noice and more independence.

    Campus Safety

    Our on-campus police department is called the LUPD (Liberty University Police Department). I hear they do a good job, but can sometimes be slow when not responding to emergency situations. Although, thankfully, I have never had to call them myself, so I don't know exactly how well they perform.

    Greek Life

    There are many clubs and sports on campus as well as activities to keep students busy.

    Clubs and Activities

    Lots of intramural sports, great facilities, and many places off-campus. Students with access to a car will have the best experience, but there are many awesome places within walking distance.

    Great for these types of students

    It will be very difficult for incoming students who are not Christians, and even new Christians will find campus rules and academics challenging. This is a Baptist University, so Christ is at the very center of everything Liberty does.

    I enjoy hiking to the monogram on campus, visiting downtown Lynchburg and taking pictures, going bowling, eating dessert at Smoothie King or Sweet Frog, and hanging out in the group study rooms.

    Liberty is expensive, but the University offers a lot for scholarships and additional loans. The website says that 95% of students use financial aid through the University, and it really is true. Liberty is very good about awarding grants and scholarships.

    What to do for fun

    On campus - any sport court/field imaginable (basketball, tennis, etc.), ping pong and pool tables, Barnes and Noble bookstore on campus, hiking, skiing, swimming, and movie nights. Off campus - visiting downtown (best place to take pictures ever!), hiking, bowling, mini golf, dollar theater (yes, movies never cost more than $2!), fancy Regal theater, malls, shopping, and restaurants.

    Food and Dining

    I would give 5 stars for options and 3 stars for quality. We were ranked in the top 10 nationally for variety on- (and there are tons more off-) campus. The main cafeteria food is not amazing - just regular cafeteria food. But there are sub shops, pizza places, coffee shops, and many other food options on campus that make up for it.

    Dorm Life

    I love the dorm life here on campus. The girls on my hall are wonderful, the facilities are nice (and improving), and the variety of residential dorms on campus is incredible.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are challenging, but some classes could be better. It really depends on your intended major and the professor of the class.

    Liberty has the professionalism and aire of spirituality that one cannot put a price tag upon. They are teaching an education not selling a piece of paper.

    What to do for fun

    The mountain scenario presents many attractions from skiing, hiking ,or just basking in the beauty of nature.

    Food and Dining

    Excellent!

    Dorm Life

    I cannot comment for I am an online student. However,if the manner of which the faculty and students present themselves in an online atmosphere has any weight, I would say that dorm life is satisfactory.

    Academic Rigor

    The atmosphere is one of goal orientation. A student sets the goals and liberty university allows them the opportunity to make them happen

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask questions and feel the answers. The people at liberty are dedicated and are professional in their careers and goals.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a great source for the practice of spirituality in the education arena. The essence of compassion,integrity,and service are felt in all aspects. The faculty and students practice patience,without which we all would become one!

    Campus Safety

    This campus is extraordinarily safe. The campus is well lit, and generally well populated so you never feel in danger. Also, there is the LUPD (Liberty University Police Department) that drives around campus 24/7 and keeps a look out. Also, you are provided with their number so you can call if you feel threatened or unsafe and they will escort you to wherever you need to go.

    Greek Life

    There are no fraternities here.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are plenty of clubs there and all for very good purposes. The only downside to it is maybe that there is too many! It's hard to decide which ones to join.

    Great for these types of students

    It is great for students outgoing and shy alike! I am a very shy person, but I have become much more outgoing since going there. There is so many opportunities to meet more people and students and teachers alike are so welcoming. It's good for outgoing people as well for the exact same reason.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Football games are huge at Liberty. Every fall people get all dressed up in red and blue to represent our colors. There is something called Gillville where students go out on the football field in tents the night before a game so you can get really good seats the next day at the game. People here are very dedicated to their football here.

    Bang for the buck

    It is an expensive school, but it offers scholarships which make it much more affordable.

    What to do for fun

    There is always something going on at Liberty. Whether it is a pick up game of soccer or frisbee on one of the many fields, something led by Student Activities, or one of the many athletic games that go on, there is always fun things to do. There is also a dollar movie theater right down the road, making it cheap and easy to go see a movie with friends. Student Activities does a good job of almost always having some fun event planned on Friday nights, such as a movie night, carnival, or fair. And then there is always going out on the town, provided you or one of your friends have a car!

    Food and Dining

    There are plenty of options for food at Liberty. The Dining Hall has many different stations with various types of food. They have a main meal, a gluten free section, burgers and fries, sandwiches, burritos, paninis, pizza, a salad bar, and more. There is also a Chickfila on campus, as well as our own diner.

    Dorm Life

    They have so many different options for dorm living that there is usually something for everybody. They have triples, with three people to a room, so if you are very social, this is for you. East Campus is a great place for people who have tough majors because it is a bit more secluded, but also a great place to go as an upper class-man because you can get a big group of friends to go over and share a suite. Liberty is very community-oriented and it is a great place for good Dorm Life

    Academic Rigor

    I am in the Nursing Program here and the amount of classes I have to take and the workload in the classes is significant, but I am also in one of the harder majors. It is very rigorous and requires a lot out of you, but you learn so much information and the teachers are very good.

    Tips for prospective students

    When you come to Liberty, make sure you do a walk through of your classes before your first day! You don't want to be that freshman coming in late on your first class of the year. The numbers of the rooms in Demoss Hall are very confusing and not in numerical order, so going beforehand and finding them is very beneficial.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is a great place if you want to grow. It allows you to grow educationally, with some of the best programs and classes, you will learn so much every day. You will grow in your social aspects as well, because Liberty's sense of community is so strong, you will learn quickly and easily how to make friends and interact with others. Not only will you succeed educationally and socially, but you will also grow spiritually; Liberty University puts a huge emphasis on your spiritual growth and it creates a healthy, great environment.

    Campus Safety

    As a young woman, I'm aware of my increased vulnerability living away from home. Thus far, I've never felt uncomfortable walking on campus at night or by myself. The Liberty University Police Department aren't just rent-a-cops and their presence on campus makes me feel more secure.

    Great for these types of students

    If you're looking for a school that will encourage you to go deeper in your walk with God, Liberty definitely has a lot of opportunities to do just that. Part of the curriculum for any major includes a certain number of Christian Service hours in an area of your choice--for example, you could donate that time to a soup kitchen, or to tutoring kids at a local school. I think this is an excellent way to give back to the community that I'm staying in for a short amount of time, and a great way to honor God as well.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Since I'm only familiar with Liberty, I don't know if this is unique to them or not, but we have wear red Fridays to support our football team. We've also got a Christmas lights ceremony during which the school chancellor and his wife flip the switch for the campus lights and everyone sings carols.

    What to do for fun

    There are a TON of recreational options including a skating rink, a snowflex run that's open year round, multiple pools, soccer fields, and a lot of local places that are within walking distance. There are free movies playing on campus just about every weekend, as well as various student activities that are usually priced under $5 or free. Liberty is also big on school spirit, so they're always reminding the student body of sports events and encouraging us to cheer on our classmates.

    Food and Dining

    I've had great experiences with both the dining hall at school and some of the other on campus eateries. We actually have a Pizza Hut on campus that includes certain menu items on your meal plan, so you don't have to worry about carrying cash. Very handy when you get tired of the dining hall options, though those happen to be many and tasty at that.

    Dorm Life

    I personally live in an apartment style dorm and I really enjoy it. There's a kitchen I share with six other girls, which makes for some extra cleaning work, but I consider well worth it. The community at Liberty University is very strong, so there's little chance of being lost in the crowd. The only major downside is room checks three times a week--no fun when you're worrying about cleaning your room every other day.

    Academic Rigor

    Thus far I've taken mostly lower level classes because I am a transfer student, but even those have been designed to make me think and I have benefited from them. Most of their programs are highly rated though, and statistics show that there's very good after-college job placement from this university.

    Tips for prospective students

    While Liberty University's tuition is overwhelming at first glance, don't let that scare you off! There are a lot of scholarship opportunities through the school alone, you just need to be diligent in seeking them out. Essay writing is a very valuable skill in the college setting, and what better way to practice than one that could be lucrative?

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is an excellent Christian college that truly lives up to its goal to create champions. I've met a good deal of excellent faculty there, who enrich the educational experience by setting a good example for the students. The academics are reasonably rigorous, and I've found the campus atmosphere to be charming for the most part.

    I am not certain if Liberty has any Fraternities or Sororities.

    What to do for fun

    Again- not being on campus I am not aware what is available for fun activities. It appears to me the campus never has a dull moment.

    Food and Dining

    Again being an online student I have not yet visited the campus. It appears there's multiple options- several chik-fila establishments on campus in addition to other options.

    Dorm Life

    I attend Liberty online so I cannot speak to dorm life- though I know they are building many more women's dorms presently.

    Academic Rigor

    Academic quality is extremely high which is good to me- I prefer attending a school with high academic integrity and focus.

    Tips for prospective students

    You do need to be proactive and take control of your own degree completion plan. The advisers are helpful but YOU need to know YOUR OWN plan.

    Liberty U is a Christian university, so it's great for any Christian who wants to be surrounded by people of a similar mindset. The professors incorporate biblical morals and values into their courses, which allows you to easily carry those values on into real world situations. he online portion is also great for non-traditional students, adult learners, parents, and people working full-time looking to obtain a degree.

    Food and Dining

    I was enrolled through the online school, so this didn't apply to me.

    Dorm Life

    Obviously it really depends on the type of class, butt I would say most classes are fairly rigorous. Not so much where you feel like quitting, but they definitely require you to do your fair share of work.

    In three sentences

    The professors challenge you, but yet are very understanding of unique circumstances. The great thing is, all subjects are taught from a Christian perspective that you can carry with you into the workforce. Overall, the school is great except for the financial aid office, just make sure you get your award amount in writing!

    Campus Safety

    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.

    Pray! evangelize!!! play healthy!!! there is no drug or alcohol or sex in this school. if you do that, just get expelled. this is the school of God. no such things allowed.

    Food and Dining

    Rot is rotting. you will get it when you get there. taste amazing!! But for health, it is good. there are other school restaurants like doc's diner, subconnection, chickfilley, etc. Green Hall's buffet is indeed quality food.

    Dorm Life

    Christian centered life awaits there. Amazing for communication, but it is too loud. very hard to study. So many immatures run around make noises. You can hardly study. But as always in everywhere, there are few great students too.

    Academic Rigor

    tons of honor students are nerds. so as some teachers are. some are amazing, some are nerds, some are not. depends on the professors.

    Tips for prospective students

    if you look for help and try to study, there are so many helps you can get. It is a weird school. If you try to get it, you can get very quality knowledge and faith from here. But if you just play around, there is no school worse than this.

    In three sentences

    What to do for fun

    Well you can hang out with friends. Or you can do things in the town of Lynchburg. When you get to Lynchburg you will understand a little more about what there is to do. But in all honesty its what you make it.

    Food and Dining

    The main dining hall (The Rot) is okay for only so long. However, at Liberty University there are many dining options, which is the good thing. If you don't feel like having the buffet then you can get a sub, or go to dunkin' donuts. There is also a cafe called Jazzman's.

    Dorm Life

    I love the dorm. There are 60 guys or 60 girls on each floor of the main dorms (which are being rebuilt one by one. There are also other dorming options. For a quieter time in your dorm you should think about staying in the Annex. To live in an apartment style dorm you should go to East Campus. And if you want to be in a regular dorm then the Circle or the Hill is the place for you. The dorms are very spiritual and there is always something going on.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes may seem easy but you still need to study in order to make an A. Although freshman classes may seem a little easy, the upper level classes get much harder. The professors are very insightful and truly care about what they are teaching.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking to go to Liberty, you must understand that there are some rules and they should be followed. Although rules in college sound bad, it truly teaches you to be a more mature person. If you come with a open mind God is definitely going to do some work in your life and I know that you will see the benefits. I have truly grown since going to Liberty University.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is not only a school but a family. Even if you are not a Christian, there is a lot that you can learn from this wonderful Christian University. It is a place full of excitement, and many different activities, and it allows everyone to enjoy it's activities while still keeping a Christian view and a Christian standard.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would definitely recommend the INFT course for all students who are new to the online college scene. Make sure you keep up with when your assignments are due, there are very strict deadlines that must be met. Always be courteous when using the Blackboard, treat others as you want to be treated.

    Campus Safety

    It is an open campus, but Liberty stresses safety and sends out alerts in text messages if there is suspicious activity on campus.

    Greek Life

    Is pretty much nonexistent, except for Honors Society.

    Great for these types of students

    Christian

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The Spirit Rock... this is a rock which dorms practically fight over (for fun, of course!) Students spray paint a rock in front of the learning building, DeMoss, with their dorm number on it. In general, Dorm 8 usually claims the Spirit Rock most often.

    What to do for fun

    There's a recreation center where students can hang out, and we have something called SnoFlex. This is a mountain of fake snow for skiing, snowboarding, and snowtubing, Lots of students take advantage of this, but you have to be careful--if you fall, the fake snow is like falling on sandpaper! There is also an ice center where you can go ice skating, and an equestrian center where you can take a lesson and go on a trail ride (there is not transportation to this, however; there is to the SnoFlex).

    Food and Dining

    The Reber-Thomas Dining Hall is never referred to as the dining hall--if you're asking someone if they want to go eat with you there, you ask them if they want to go to the rot. However, Subco (basically Subway) makes delicious sandwiches, and there's a Pizza Hut and Chic-Fil-A on campus as well as a few other options. But for anyone aiming to eat healthy, there are not many options at all.

    Dorm Life

    Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, there are room checks. Trash must be taken out, beds must be made, sink and mirror must be cleaned, and the floor must be swept. Failing to do so can result in fines, but all in all it's pretty nice having this--for anyone who isn't normally the cleanest person, it prevents you from letting your room get out of control and messy. Everyone is very welcoming and accepting, and there are so many people you can go to for advice--the RAs, SLDs, and Prayer Leaders.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends on your major, really. Criminal Justice majors and Christian majors would be a five star rating, however most of the other majors are a bit lacking.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just make sure you've read the rules and understand that there are things like a dress code and curfew here. I recommend trying CFAW--College For A Weekend--if you are interested in attending Liberty.

    In three sentences

    Liberty is a wonderful place for anyone wishing to become Christian or grow in their Christian faith. Convocation, a spiritual service where all the students gather together three times a week, is absolutely breathtaking. However, if you want to come to Liberty, be absolutely sure to read all the rules and know exactly what you're getting yourself into; it has a lot more rules than regular colleges do, to help us make moral decisions.

    What to do for fun

    Joining organizations, going to sporting events, plus there are plenty of activities going on in campus, hanging out with friends, and exploring the beautiful country side.

    Food and Dining

    The main food place on campus isn't all that, but It's not terrible either. There are a few other places on campus that are good plus a lot of off campus dining close to school.

    Dorm Life

    People on the dorms is great, I prefere either the Hill or the Circle for freshman because these dorms give you the best chance of meeting a lot of people. Plus its the cheapest. Weekly prayer groups are really good and give you a chance to learn more about your hallmates

    Academic Rigor

    Its only hard if you dont study.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to learn a whole bunch of people's names as you will be introduced to whole lot of people your first year.

    Great school for students looking to strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ. People here are really friendly and it is a world-class Christian education that competes with secular colleges across the nation.

    Campus Safety

    There is an LUPD on campus. Things do get stolen on campus, for I had my macbook pro stolen, but Thank God it was returned, so students should not leave anything unattended.

    Greek Life

    They offer Greek classes I assume.

    Clubs and Activities

    Pro life clubs. They offer horseback riding on the weekend, students can ski at the only year round snow flex on the mountain. Swimming and iceskating is available.

    Great for these types of students

    This is a great school for someone who wants their faith to be challenged, to grow in the word, and to be surrounded by a Christian environment, without having to worry about on campus seeing people in homosexual relationships and hearing foul language or partying like most universities.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Three times a week, we have speakers come from all over the world with worship music. It is the largest weekly gathering of young people in the world. We've had speakers from Donald Trump to Kirk Cameron come this semester!

    Bang for the buck

    Most professors will teach what it really means to be a Christian unlike most schools. They will tell you, you have to not only believe (James 2:19) but confess and decide to turn from your sins, and that God will give you a changed heart from giving your life to Him as Lord. (Acts 3:19).

    What to do for fun

    There are many activities for students that are on campus. I'm going to list a few. Movies are shown in the vines center almost every friday night. Open mic night is about every other week.

    Food and Dining

    The food is really good. There's a large cafeteria, a bistro with flatbread sandwiches, pizza hut, and a subconnection that students can use their meal swipes for.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms have weekly hall meetings with prayer groups. Each dorm has a brother/sister dorms which they do many activities throughout the year together.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are difficult since it is a University but I love how real the staff are. Evolution will not be taught as truth since it is a lie.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply a year in advance so that you can get the most scholarships possible.

    In three sentences

    Liberty University is the best school in the world. The staff treat you like a real person instead of a number. This school has more Christian attributes than others.

    Not too bad. But it is not for the lazy!

    Tips for prospective students

    Study hard now! College is not a cake walk, and good grades will not just fall into your lap. My first year of school I have managed to maintain all A's. No B's, C's, D's or F's. But these grades didn't just appear on my papers, I had to work for them. It may not seem like it makes sense now, but making good grades paves the way to your dreams. Believe me, I know!

    In three sentences

    As a college freshman, I am thoroughly enjoying my time here at LU. The instructors are very helpful and they will help to propel you forward and help you to do your very best in the class. If I had to do college ten times over, I would do it at Liberty University!

    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.

    What to do for fun

    In California and in the city I live in we have many different outdoor fun activities to do. I live within 45 minutes of two lakes where you can ski and wakeboard and ride jet skis. I also live within 45 minutes of Mt. Shasta where you can ski and snowboard in the winter time.

    Food and Dining

    I do not eat at the school because of being an online student. I have never even had the opportunity yet to see the dining hall.

    Dorm Life

    I am an online student only and I live in California. Liberty is in Lynchburg, Virginia and I have never had the opportunity yet to visit the campus.

    Academic Rigor

    I am an online student and my courses last usually 8 weeks long each and I take two at a time which is considered full time. They are intense but Liberty does not make them impossible. I am a full time mother and I work full time and I am still able to get A's and B's in my classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Enjoy your learning experience and you will at Liberty. I feel very blessed to be part of such a large growing school that still isn't to over populated to give you as a student the attention you need. Liberty's whole experience is amazing!!!

    In three sentences

    Liberty University has the most caring and understanding professors as well as staff. If I ever have a problem my questions are always answered and completed when said they would be. My grades went up after I switched from University of Phoenix to Liberty because the online schooling is more flexible at Liberty.

    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!

    I attended the Liberty Flames football game during my visit, having a blast. Everyone had so much school spirit, and good sportsmanship. I would recommend going to one. I also hung out at the Tiley Student Center a lot, playing cards and hanging out with my friends. It's a very peaceful environment, and very fun. The gym is also connected to it, giving it an easy access location.

    Food and Dining

    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 colleg
