4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety First! The campus is safe at all hours. We have early curfews and well lit areas to walk to and from class at night and up to the dorms. I've never heard of any violent crimes or really any crimes in general happen on Liberty's campus. Any time you lock yourself out or feel unsafe a call to the campus police will clear everything up in a quick and timely fashion.

Scholarships: Fairly Easy Process, Scholarship Focus Could Always Be Stronger. Helpful and friendly FA staff. Overall, a fairly easy process, scholarship focus could always be stronger.

Diversity: Liberty University is a christian college. I am sure there are different religions than Christian, and I am sure that even though it is a Christian college, that there are only athletes there to play sports. All around the atmosphere is pretty accepting. PDA is not allowed.

Local Atmosphere: Lynchburg is a pretty big University town with a lot to offer. There is a lot of nice places to go eat,and also a super walmart which is very helpful and comes in handy. There is "snow flex" which is an outdoor skiing/snowboarding complex open all year round, it is fun for everyone. Lynchburg also has a bunch of hills which is great for hiking and enjoying nature.

3 College Senior

Weather: Liberty gets a lot of rain. Although it is mostly warm in Virginia, if you hate rain you will hate Lynchburg.

1 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Because Liberty is a Christian University,rules are extremely strict. There is a curfew, attendance policy, and an absolutely no-drinking-or-drugs policy. My advice to anyone who wants to party and get a lot out of their "college life" is to go to a different university.To anyone who hopes to grow in their relationship with Christ without the distractions of a normal campus,Liberty is the place for you.

Greek Life: I can not tell you any thing about the Greek life because I am not on campus full time. I am an online student.

Overall Experience: Liberty University truly is one of the most unique and greatest universities in the year. We are a huge school, but the university really does make it seem like we're all one big family. We do have some rules, but they are not hard to follow because everyone has to obey them. I am truly blessed to go here and would not want to be anywhere else.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many different off-campus options available in Lynchburg. Most students tend to go with an apartment and I have found that most of the apartments are fairly priced and are close to campus. If you do not have a car, Liberty also offers an Apartment bus system that will take you to campus and drop you back off at your apartment.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I came to Liberty University because they have a wonderful nursing program and gave me the most money to attend their school. The campus is great and is constantly growing and changing. My professors have also been awesome and many of them still know me by name. The faculty and staff truly care about you here and will do their best to give you the best college experience possible!

5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather at Liberty University is usually gorgeous. When it rains, I would definitely recommend rain boots if your dorm is far from your classes. Otherwise, the weather usually is not much of a problem and students love being outside.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Lots of Computer Labs – There are 2 computer labs in DeMoss located on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the building. They both have numerous computers including both Macs and PCs. There are also computers on East Campus in the Clubhouse. It is easy to print from any of those computers. Students can also set up their computers to wirelessly print to any of the labs from their laptops.

Campus Housing: Dorms at Liberty University largely vary in quality depending on location. Main campus dorms include the Circle, Quads, and the Hill. The Circle has a lot of old dorms and is hall style. The quads are very popular. There are 10 girls to a quad, 2 bathrooms and a small kitchen. The Hill is also hall style, just like the Circle, except the location of the HIll is more central to campus. Those living on the Hill are typically more outgoing. The other side of Campus is East Campus. Dorms include buildings that are "apartment style." Each quad has 2, 2-person rooms and 1, 3-person room. Each room includes their own bathroom. The quad also has a full kitchen, living room, heat/air control, and laundry machines. Although living on East Campus is more expensive, many favor it because of the extra space and quality of the dorms. The atmosphere is a lot quieter, however, the hall feel is still maintained.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Dining Options Off-Campus – Wards Road is located directly off campus. There is a road leading off campus that leads to Wards, as well as a tunnel that goes under the highway that students can walk under to get to vendors. Some college student favorites include Moe's and Panera. A lot of students enjoy eating off-campus because they can use their "Flames cash," that is part of some meal plans, to pay for their meal and tip if necessary. Restaurants like Buffalo Wild Wings, Sundae Grill, Dominos, Smoothie King, Jersey Mikes, Sheetz, Wendys, Little Caesers, Texas Roadhouse, Sweet Frog, Ledo's Pizza, TGI Fridays, Macado's, Sonic, Big Lick, Subway, Yogurt Yeti, and Bloop. There are many other vendors such as Chick-fil-a, Vinny's, La Carreta, Cracker Barrel, McDonalds, Pablo Viejo, CiCi's Pizza, IHop and more. The average cost per average meal at most of these places ranges from $5-10. Some places offer special promotions which make them even more affordable.

Drug Safety: In this school they reserve anything that deals with something realated to this topic. Such as if there were a girl who drinks we wouldn't know because she would actually kicked out so it stricted in those areas .

3 College Student

Greek Life: Right now there isn't much going on but when there are some sort of sports activity . Its a major thing .

3 College Student

Health & Safety: This school has the top best safety team I think they have. Every 30 minutes there would be a patrol car just observing if there is anything happening that they take of. I don't know much about their healthcare but from what I heard its the best.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: the weather is variable but doesnt affect you getting around campus

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: the student centers are ok not really much to do in them and they are not that big

4 College Student

Diversity: More Whites – Although there are a lot of white people there, it is still diverse. Every year more and more people are coming from other parts of the world!

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Laid Back – There is a variety of things to do. lynchburg is nestled in the mountains of Virginia and it is absolutely beautiful!!

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Never had had a problem with drugs at Liberty University. There's a big punishment for drugs so it's not usually a problem.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus Life – Dorms have a big variety. The ones on East campus are very nice but are far away from all the life of campus. Perfect for students that are wanting to still have 'alone time'. They also offer dorms on Main Cmpus and on the Circle, these are right in the middle of campus.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Nursing is one of the best programs at LU. There are excellent professors that have your best interests at heart. They also do more hands on learning as opposed to other schools. During your sophmore year is when you start working in the clinical setting. Highly recommended. Very difficult program but well worth it.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Professors Actually Care – Most professors at Liberty actually care about the students. Sometimes one can get a bad professor, but most of the time they are passionate about what they are teaching. They want the student to pass and help them get there. Of course sometimes this defeats the purpose of education because some offer too much extra credit. Most classes are interesting and good grades are easily achievable if worked towards.
