Lynchburg College is a big family. You get to know everyone here on many different levels, including the President and the dean.
Hailey from Arlington, VA
LC has a great environment and is very welcoming. You can always find help when you need it and you never feel alone. LC prepares for life after college and a sincere and genuine way.
Tia from VA
Lynchburg College is a constantly evolving campus both in infrastructure, specifically referring to the new student center that is currently being built and will be ready and open by the next school semester in the fall, and in the classroom. Every year new courses, undergraduate majors, and graduate level programs are being offered which presents many opportunities to the students who currently attend or plan on attending the campus. This is a college where the students can have a fun time meeting new people, have many chances to become more involved in student activities like sports and clubs, and receive a great education.
Christopher from Middletown, VA
Lynchburg College is beyond amazing. It over exceeded my expectations for any school; could not have chosen a better school. Would not transfer out for any reason.
Cindy from Manassas, VA
lynchburg college is a small liberal arts private school. the class sizes are small and the teachers really care about their students. everyone is friendly and willing to help you.
Chelsea from Lynchburg, VA
I love it at Lynchburg College. It is academically challenging and the professors are great. They are very hepful when you need assistance with something or don't understand something.
Brendan from Simsbury, CT
Not only are there many opportunities for students to receive extra assistance with courses, but the teachers themselves are more than willing to sit down and help a student understand the material. The students are welcoming and there are ample groups on campus to join. The campus itself is beautiful and because of this more people go outside which is something all colleges ought to strive for seeing as how there is a pandemic of young people who stay inside playing video games.
