4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The on-campus living situations are great at Liberty and it's quite an experience to live on one of the halls. They're pretty convenient and generally very fun. The most convenient dorms are on the hill, and the residential annex is the cheapest option and is an old Quality Inn, but it is off campus and considered part of campus. The east campus flats are very luxurious.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Liberty is a great place to find a spouse or just someone to date or even just hang with. Many of the students are friendly, interesting, attractive people. Liberty has a huge variety of people like basketball junkies, hipsters, normal people, but also a lot of the guys on campus are tools. The relationships are pretty interesting and some couples just can't get away from each other. Liberty's dress code makes it necessary to dress relatively modest, which is a good thing if you are a Christian .

Off-Campus Dining: Lynchburg Food – Lynchburg has tons of options for Liberty students and plenty in general that are in close proximity to the school. Many places accept flames cash which is a part of the Liberty meal plan, and some places such as Hardees give a good college discount. My recommendation would be Buffalo Wild Wings, which accepts flames cash.

Facilities: Liberty University is a very entertaining place when students are not busy with school or work. The Tilley Student Center is a great place to hang out; it has 5 basketball courts, weight rooms, exercise equipment, couches, televisions, PS3's, snacks, and plenty of people to talk to. Also Liberty has an on campus snowflex ski and snowboard slope, which is pretty awesome.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Completely Safe – Although Liberty University is an open campus, I have never once felt unsafe while walking the campus. Liberty has it's own police department, so if you do feel uncomfortable walking alone at night, all you have to do is call them, and they'll pick you up and drop you off at your dorm. There have been little cases of theft, and the no-alcohol rule keeps things calm and safe.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am not familiar with any off campus housing options

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Ever Growing – There is always a building project going on which causes some issues with traffic, but keeps us excited about what will happen next. With over crowding in the dining hall, Liberty now has different "to go" options where we can grab a quick meal and take it to our dorms. Our gym has 5 basketball courts, with 2 weight rooms, a rock climbing wall, and lots of ellipticals! There is a pool for us to use and 2 jacuzzis.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Historical and Beautiful – There are many different things to do in Lynchburg, although it is far from big city life and has no nightlife (which is fine by me). There are beautiful views of the local mountains and plenty of hiking trailers. Thomas Jefferson's summer home, Poplar Forest is about 15 minutes away from town; and, we are also 45 minutes away from historic Appomattox.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Able to Get Needed Experience – I'm attending Liberty University and am a Psychology major. The Psych department has various opportunities for out-of-the-classroom experience including: joining the psych community, listening to dozens of speakers, joining the research program, internships and more. The professors are willing and able to help you, but you also have to be willing to help yourself!

2 College Sophomore

Weather: We're near mountains so it can be quite cold and rainy

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Variety as usual. Generally attractive guys and gals, nice that there are more girls here than guys. Marriage is heavily emphasized here though so trying to be "just friends" can be awkward...

Off-Campus Housing: A mixed bad honestly. Not really much to rate here.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Liberty offers many options for housing and all have their ups and downs. On main campus dorms the rooms are very spacious and the dorm atmosphere is great having about 70 people on a hall, great way to meet lots of people. There are community bathrooms but they are cleaned daily and always kept in great condition. East Campus is more of an apartment style living with a common room and mini kitchen. Not exactly a dorm feel but it is good for upperclassman or people who prefer a quieter and more private atmosphere.

5 College Freshman

Computers: Top Notch – There are hundreds of computers in the computer labs that are open past midnight every night. Both PC and Mac computers are available in all of the computer labs. The labs tend to get crowded during certain times of the day but it is rare to not be able to find an open spot. The printers are all connected on one network so any student can print from any computer to any printer on campus; you can even set up your personal computer to be able to print from any and all of the campus printers.

1 College Junior

Transportation: Liberty has been in the transition of having a massive influx of commuting students, which has been...excruciating to say the least. There just aren't enough parking spots for students and buses can be very unreliable. I know that they used to have a better bus system but somehow it changed and it's just a headache right now. Some day Liberty will work out all their transportation issues, but it's not going to be this year...or next year...

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: When applying to Liberty, students have to sign a code of conduct that is pretty heavily enforced. I know that there are students that go party and that there are students that get away with those sort of things, but that's not really my thing. I think that Liberty is a little too strict, especially when it comes to guy and girl relationships. There really just isn't a place to hang out or go to enjoy large groups of mixed company.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: This is a christian college. It should be strict!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Liberty University offers an incredible body of professors who genuinely care for not only the academic success of their students, but also care for them on a personal level. It provides the perfect environment to encourage and keep students going.

5 College Student

Scholarships: They Are Great! The financial aid office has been great to work with. I'm still pretty new to the process, but so far, every person I've worked with has been wonderful, helpful, and great at following through!

4 College Freshman

Majors: Career Goals – Love the school and the program. I would definitely do it all over again at the very same school. I plan on becoming a Christian film maker after completing school and then graduating from film school. I have no concerns about finding work after the completion of school.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather affects my academics in no way. I do online classes from home.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: School Policy – The only school policy that I am effected by is the Honesty Policy that prohibits cheating.

5 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Safe and Trusted – Enough christian night hot spots to feel safe and still have fun

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Student Seeking Internship – I haven't yet had an internship while at LU, but I plan to have one my senior year. I'm a Psychology: Human Services major and I'm very excited to have an internship, but I admit that I'm a bit nervous about finding one that suits what I want to do once I graduate. However, with all the internship opportunities at LU, I'm fairly sure I'll be able to find one -- and love it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Be Early, Be Loud, Wear Red – LU has tons of school spirit. For almost every home game, students are decked out in red attire and body paint, enthusiastically cheering on the Flames, which students are convinced helps the team to win. LU athletics are highly ranked in every one of its divisions and within the Big South conference. Also, Liberty's facilities are incredible, yet Chancellor Falwell is always seeking ways to improve them and keep them at top quality facilities not only for student-athletes, but for intramural athletes and regular students as well.
