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