3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Good Times – Liberty has many sports and many different clubs including Brazilian jiu-jitsu. There are always games and events like concerts going on around campus. I would choose Liberty if I had to do it again because of the great campus, education and experiences i have had so far.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: there is on-campus but routes that run daily. there are also shuttle bus services that go to apartments. the city bus system is also very good

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Transportation Is Great – Lynchburg has many great apartment complexes with public transportation at or near most of them. Liberty also provides shuttle bus transportation to and from the university throughout the day to numerous locations

Overall Experience: Liberty University is absolutely amazing. It is the largest Christian university in the U.S. and the professors have all been amazing. Some ask for personal prayer requests so they can pray for their students and are always available to talk about school work or personal issues you nay be dealing with. They are more than proficient in the area they teach in and that is obvious when you start classes. The work load can be difficult if you're managing a family and job with school but it has all been worth it. You sure get your money worth at this school! I would definitely choose this school again. And again and again and again! :)

Local Atmosphere: Amazing.. Lynchburg is a college town and Liberty is a very large school. Much to do and they have much to offer.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I Wish I Got More – Every student wishes they got more aid, but LU does pretty good. The scholarship situation will still make a 'majority' race feel like a 'minority' though.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The School Defines the Town – Lynchburg has some great options for shopping, activities and community involvement, especially down town or on Wards road...and we have the best SweetFrog in the world! The problem is transportation off campus if you don't have a car.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Perfect Minus Parking – Liberty University is safe and comfortable, but their major down side is parking. Students that use their cars often have to commute an unreasonable distance, sometimes in the dark, in poorly lit areas.

5 College Student

Transportation: The transportation team is wonderful. They are friendly and helpful to get you to where you need to be.

4 College Student

Diversity: I see diversity is some instances wrong. I like the colleges view point on religion and that is the main reason I choose to come here. I do not want to be in another other religious setting. I do not want to be in a college setting where any religion or sexual choice is considered diverse, and therefore a hindrance.

4 College Student

Campus Dining: Many Choices – When visiting the college there were many choices and the food was good. I hope it is the same on a regular basis.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Diverse Academic Environment – Liberty is very diverse and accepting in a loving Christian environment.

5 College Freshman

Academics: An Enjoyable and Worthwhile Challenge – At Liberty University the coursework is both challenging and doable.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Process Was Very Hard – The school is very nice but the finacial aid dept is horrible everyone has something different to say always and they could give students more money to help out.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Rains a Lot – In lynchburg it rains so much it was nicknamed drenchburg. Everyone needs to invest in rain coats and boats.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Lots of White Students but Lots of Internationa as Well. Liberty is a christian college. We have chapel three days a week Monday Wed and Friday. AT liberty there are about 12,oo on campus students. Allthough its in a boring town lyncburg the school makes aure it students have something to do. The School is very nice but has a few minor problems such as food and always placing a fee on everything.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Online Studies – Liberty's Online program allows me to continue my education without having to leave home.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletic Students Have the Upperhand – Athletic students can get away with anything they want and will have an excuse to get out of anything. Football is a lower league but the games are very energetic.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I grew up in Lynchburg and as for college students, there isn't much to do. You will not be entertained but the city is very safe. There isn't much shopping and little to no cultural activities.

1 College Freshman

Academics: Degree Factory – I started college at Liberty because I had a scholarship. I do not plan to attend next year. The college itself has a wonderful campus, but the amount of freedom to express yourself is lacking. The classes only require a pulse to pass because they want to produce as many Liberty graduates as possible. I do not suggest attending this school if you want a legitimate education.

Academics: The workload at times can be really hard but that is expected at an university. Don't think that just because you are doing online classes that you get off the hook because you don't. You have just as much work to do as if you are in a class room setting. The curriculum is laid out pretty well the same format in every class which for me as been very easy and helpful. The online classes has been a major help for me and my life style than having to take the time to go in the evening to an university every evening.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Christian School Rules – I love Liberty's rules, it one of the reasons I went there. However, most of the time, RA's look the other way, and the rules are somewhat of a joke. It's a Christian university, so the big rules still apply, but dress-code is the big joke on campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Liberty is a very safe campus, do not get me wrong. However, their campus police department is useless. Also, they just allowed concealed carry on campus...way to make the campus feel even less safe. Let an incompetent police department who can barely handle parking deal with concealed weapons on campus now? It just does not make sense.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Students are extremely nice and helpful. Dress is modest, plenty of campus events.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Close Apartments – Nice apartments within walking distance which is good because it is extremely difficult to drive around Lynchburg, VA.
