3 College Senior

Weather: It rains quite a bit in Lynchburg, so invest in an umbrella and boots. The winter is fairly mild, with the occasional snowstorm. One year it was in the 60s in February.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Being a Communications Major student is a lot of excitement here. There are plenty of opportunities to gain experience left and right.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lynchburg is made up of restaurants. There's anything and everything you could possibly want: fast food, Chinese food, Japanese food/Hibachi bars/sushi bars, Italian food, Mexican food, Sweet Frog and Bloop (Frozen Yogurt), Texas Roadhouse, Macado's, Coldstone Ice Cream, Panera Bread, Starbucks, T.G.I. Fridays, IHOP... the list goes on. Many of these are within walking distance, too. Some of the restaurants can be a bit pricey, but most of them are reasonably priced. It's a fact that the majority of families that live in Lynchburg don't cook, but go out to eat every night and maybe one night a week they heat their leftovers at home.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The area is very safe. Generally, people are really willing to walk with you, including the police and other people (southern hospitality.) Also, because the school is strict, someone knows where you are based on where you swipe your ID or where you sign out to.

2 College Junior

Weather: It always rains. They call the area "Drenchburg." However, the chancellor is very quick to cancel classes because of the large amount of commuter students. One time, it was barely raining, and we got out of school for the day anyway!

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are many international students at Liberty due to the Christian label. There are a lot of students who have studied internationally and many who were missionary kids. There are a lot of Korean students. However, there isn't much diversity from around the United States. The national population is mostly Caucasian. However, being Korean, I usually feel accepted.

1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining hall at Liberty is known by the students as "the rot", and none of the food is fantastic. There is a pizza hut and chic-fil-a on campus, but only the pizza hut takes meal swipes and obviously you can't eat pizza every day. And if you want to eat healthy, this is not the place to do it. Any "healthy" foods here are so full of preservatives, it's not even worth eating it for its "healthy" value.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Personally i was given a good amount of financial aid. Although it was not enough and i had to take out loans and pay out of my pocket i would honestly advice anyone to look for outside resources that the school is connected to. For example scholarships or grants. Also meeting up with a financial aid advisor would benefit you in the long run.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is something to appeal to everyone from every ethnicity from Chipotle, Texas Roadhouse, Apple Bee's to local Mexican, Thai, and Japanese places, tec.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I'm sure the are those who sneak and get away with it, but the policy is very strict. I have not seen any smoking or heard of anyone doing drugs on campus and its not a part of the social scene.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of great off campus restaurants! There is a highway right behind the campus, next to most of the dorms, that has a great variety of restaurants, both in cost and style. If you want to go farther from campus, downtown is only ten minutes away, and also has several good places to take a date.

4 College Senior

Academics: I honestly do not regret coming to Liberty University. The academics are incredible, the professors are always willing to go the extra mile to help you succeed. Liberty provides you with the best in order to be successful not only in the classroom but out of the classroom.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Liberty's housing is very nice. Liberty has for different housing options.
East Campus, South Campus, the Hill, and the Inn.
All housing options offer great social atmospheres. The cost continues to change every year due to more students enrolling at Liberty. The housing process is actually one of the easiest process you go through when you arrive at Liberty. Great student leadership team to help people move in and out.. Starting this spring Liberty is starting to build new dorms that will model UVAs on-campus dormitories.

4 College Senior

Academics: I came to Liberty University because it has a very successful communications program. They have the best professors in the communications department. The professors go out of their way to help you succeed. Their goal is to provide you with the essentials necessary to be successful in whatever career field you enter after college. The professors are always available to help answer questions and help you when you are struggling or behind. Class discussions are also a huge positive because of it being a smaller class. Everyone gives insightful thoughts in each class.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I gave this college an A- rating because I have encountered some people who have used drugs on campus. That said, I have had the opportunity to see how the campus deals with people who use drugs, and while they are very gentle with drug offenders, they are also very strict. Repeat offenders are booted off campus, and the end result of the entire drug scene is that either extremely few people offend, or they are very good at hiding it when they do.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the program I am in. I know that with the education and training I am receiving I can guarantee that I will be able to land a job in the future!

College Sophomore

Majors: Since I just started, I don't know...come back in a couple of years.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus! I live at home :D A+ service!

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The people here are awesome! There are all sorts of people! There are outdoorsy hiker types, very athletic people, hipsters, musicians, preps and a lot of other type of people. Every one that I have met at Liberty has been friendly to me. People here love to just hang out with each other, play frisbee or other intermural sports, and participate in most of the activities that the school put on!

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are ton of different dining options on campus. There is the main dining hall that has a variety of options to choose from such as pasta, pizza, Mexican, burgers, gluten free, and Asian food. There are two places on campus similar to Subway that are included in your meal plan and also a place called Doc's Diner that has really good breakfast foods and burgers! There are also a few places that are quick "To Go" dining options. The only reason I gave the food an A- is because after eating it everyday for a while it becomes a little tiresome, but it by no means is bad food!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received financial aid through FAFSA which was an easy form to fill out with my parents but it was not enough to cover my tuition bill. I suggest looking for outside scholarships while applying to universities in high school.

3 College Senior

Facilities: We are getting new buildings which is great. But there is still a lot of improvement to go.

4 College Senior

Academics: The academic life at Liberty is rigorous and worth while. For those who are studious, it pays off and those who do not, complain. Some classes are easy, but others do require intense work and planning.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: We have had a few instances of robbery in the library and on campus walking back. Other than that, it is pretty safe.

3 College Senior

Parking: I can find a spot normally, but it is difficult late at night before curfew. And I feel sorry for commuters because they really have no parking.
