What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
One tip I would give for incoming students is to be open. There are so many things going on at LC and for you to get a chance at finding your place here at LC, you need to be open to new ideas.
Tia from VA
Keep an open mind, be friendly, and always be willing to meet new people whether it be in class, in a sports, or in the dorms. This applies to all colleges, and it will make the experience that much better.
Christopher from Middletown, VA
You will not go wrong by coming to Lynchburg College. The students, staff, professors are beyond amazing. You are not a number to your professors; you are always taken into consideration. You feel wanted here. They really care.
Cindy from Manassas, VA
go to class! the professors will notice if you are not there because the classes are smaller. join clubs, we have tons of clubs on campus. we also have many sports teams that are really awesome. put a lot of money on your laundry card, you will need it.
Chelsea from Lynchburg, VA
Start looking at schools early. Know what each school requires to give credit for AP and Dual Enrollment classes. Start searching for scholarships early. Make a list of questions you have as well as a list of must haves in your prospective school.
Autumn from Fredericksburg, VA
If you are looking for a college whose students are close then come here. It is a small school so pretty much everyone knows everyone. The professors are great and very accommodating, and the LC community in general is very welcoming. Lynchburg the city is not great, so everyone stays on the campus.
Meredith from Rindge, NH
Even though Lynchburg College gives out lots of financial aid, keep looking for more. Also, keep up your GPA and SAT scores. Lynchburg does not require very high scores to receive big financial aid packages.
Charles from Danville, VA
You really need to visit the college first. You'll know if you love it if you visit. There's kind, approachable professors. Just plan on having something to do on days when there seems like there is nothing to do.
