5 College Junior

Scholarships: Went Well – The process went by smoothly & quickly while I waited to see if I could get aid.

College Senior

Athletics: Online Student – As a transfer-online student, the only thing I can respond to regarding athletics is that I've seen the excitement and passion from students through webmail and the university's website.

Academics: A Cool Group. I'm in the philosophy major, and everybody is so cool and chill in their own way. Like we all get along and are cool with each other yet it's philosophy, so we're all kind of weird in our own ways too, haha. It's fun.
Philosophy reading is much more difficult then any other area, I'd say. It's not something you can just pick up and get and do an assignment, plus most of our work is reading, so, yeah, it's difficult, but not the worst.
The professors in the philosophy department are awesome! They're so cool and so easy to talk to.

Computers: Crouded During Exams – liberty is really good with computers but its best to try and get to the computers at night during crunch time and exams time it is really important to have your own because then you can use wifi

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love off campus dinning it's great when you just want to not eat at campus and you want to hang out with friends at a nice place

5 College Junior

Majors: Finding an Internship – As a History major, internships are limited and very competitive. I plan to have an internship because it will make me more marketable and enhance my resume. I have concerns because the time commitment and responsibilities will be great. Furthermore, I will need housing and transportation in order to commute to my job.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Liberty does not encourage partying but advocates going to the movies, hanging out at Snowflex, or relaxing in the Tilley Student Center.

1 College Sophomore

Majors: It was very frustrating trying to get into the graduate program online because my transcipts kept getting messed up. I often felt lost and confused.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: As a recent grad student accepted into the college, I have found it very frustrating trying to apply and find scholarships available.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: It's More Fun on Campus – Almost everything in Lynchburg closes after 9pm. Besides, there's so much fun stuff happening on campus that doesn't involve the party life, like hockey games and movie nights.

Local Atmosphere: A Typical Town – Lynchburg is your typical town. It has bad parts and good parts. It's nothing too fancy, but people seem to enjoy the town and interacting with its inhabitants.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Don't Quite Know What to Expect...That's What Makes It Fun! Virginia weather is very unpredictible. It can change within an hour from sunny to pouring rain, to back to sunny.

Academics: Everyone Is Helpful – Liberty Professors really strive to make your learning experience a positive one. If you are struggling they make every effort to help you out. General Education classes tend to be large but when you get into your core classes for your major they are fairly small in size so you get personal attention and get to know your professors very well. This helps if your looking for letters of recommendation later! As far as difficulty goes I'd say Liberty is average though I hear the nursing program is really tough.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Process Is Smooth and Helpful – Liberty is great about giving scholarships! They literally can give you one for anything and I mean anything- the scholarship for knowing your pastor was an easy one for me!

4 College Junior

Transportation: Buses and Cars – Liberty is crawling with shuttle buses that can shuttle you from Main campus to the dorms and to North Campus as well. This is a great option for on campus residents. The off campus residents get assigned stickers for which campus they can park at and then can catch a shuttle to their destination. The buses come right after each other so there is no wait time. Very convenient!

Campus Dining: Even the Best Variety Gets Old – There are several places to eat around campus. From smoothies and flatbread sandwiches to sushi and pizza hut. The Reber-Thomas dining hall has a variety of stations to eat at. Most of those stations remain the same (sandwiches, salad bar, asian bar, mexican bar, pizza) however, the main entree is always changing. They go all out for holidays too! If you ever get sick of the on campus dining though, the University is literally surrounded by restaurants! Any cuisine you can imagine and at least 6 different frozen yoghurt places!

5 College Junior

Academics: Professors Are There to Help – As a transfer student, I have already figured out that the professors are there for a student if needed. They know their students on a personal level.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Variety of Restaurants – There are a variety of restaurants to choose around the Liberty University campus. Something for everyone. Also, if yo want to venture a little further, Lynchburg has a plethora of excellent restaurants to choose from.

Overall Experience: Actually, I haven't set foot on the Liberty campus as a full-time student yet. I am transferring there from a community college. And I am so excited about it. It will be a great opportunity for me!!

Campus Strictness: There Is a Good Side and a Bad Side – The school is very strict and this can be seen as a bad thing by most but it is really a good thing. It is a college and you are there to learn. It is a Christian college and you must uphold the spirit of integrity.

Academics: So far the academics have been well thought and the professors are very professional.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Nursing Rn to Bsn – it was very easy to get enrolled. i had great help from the people on the phone. the problem was that i needed more advising. they don't offer great advise when it comes to saving me a dollar. taking the remedial tests when i already have one college degree is ridiculous becaue they don't transfer remedial math classes. ask me when i learned that. many months after i had classes.

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: No Offers – the only ones i have seen are for residents of virginia. no large amount of advertising. a scholarship would have been nice.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: the online claims that you can work and do your degree. i have been nailed to a computer for over a year due to the heavy workload with papers, projects, research papers, and discussion boards. need to be working on a 1500 word essay on atheism now. 1500 words--really?
