Nightlife: There are plenty of activities to do that don't include getting drunk. Liberty is a Christian university so it might have rules like curfew, but that doesn't mean that you need to go to bed... you stay up with your floor peeps and have some amazing time of fellowship. Over all liberty is a great Christian university if that is what you are interested in.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Buses go to all the areas students need. so no student is in want.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Its ok... but the info about them is kinda limited.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: As far as i've seen, the facilities are top of the line. It's the best i have come by thus far.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Most Exciting University in the World. You will constantly hear that phrase here and to a point, it's true. People who graduate from here go on to do amazing things. We have some great events, our students are not all partiers and druggies. Granted, there are some in every crowd, but the crowd is significantly smaller here than say at a normal public college.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: can be a nightmare at certain times of the year.
weekends are usually good unless it's College For A Weekend. (CFAW)
then you have people from everywhere who don't know how to drive and they take all the good parking spots and invade the town.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and Girls – Supposedly, the girls of LU have made Playboy's top 10 hottest college girls. There are people here from literally all over the world and we have about 12,000 residential students. You can probably find someone for you.

Nightlife: umm the town sort of shuts down at 10pm. so if you party then you need to figure that you on your own. there are no clubs, you can easily get busted for drinking because the town is pretty much made up of LU students. There are usually some things going on at campus so you need to get creative.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus – it might actually be cheaper than living on campus. there are tons of different places to live. and some of them even have a bus that goes straight from there to campus. so theoretically you could get away with not having a car. but if you are under 21 then it can be difficult to be approved to live off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Fast Food – there are some good places to eat off campus. many fast food places are right outside of campus and there are many more in the town if you are willing to drive 10 minutes

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Whatever You Want – There are a few types of campus housing here at LU.
There are the
quads: most people do not live there. they are kinda like hall style
East: more apartment style. one kitchen per "quad". three rooms are in an "apartment". two people per room except the B room which can have 3.
main: hall style
the circle: hall style but on a different part of campus
the Inn: a renovated hotel. 2 people per room and a bigger bed and a tv with cable. but its kinda far from campus. there is a bus service

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Is the place to go if you need to study in a group, or just don't want to be in your dorm after 12.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Extremely Caring – Not only does LU provide excellent academics and athletics, they actually care about you as a person. Your professors genuinely want you to succeed. You are always surrounded by loving, caring people who will be there for you whenever you need them.

4 College Senior

Weather: I would have to say, over all the weather is what I excepted it. I enjoy classes, so I'm glad that it is almost never canceled. For the most of the time, I enjoy warm weather.

Drug Safety: Because Liberty is a Christian university, there is virtually no drug or alcohol usage. Although you occasionally hear of it happening, Liberty it is a alcohol and drug free campus and is strict about enforcing those rules.

Off-Campus Housing: The cost of on-campus housing is a little higher than average at Liberty, but off-campus apartments are very affordable. On-campus parking is pretty good some days and horrible on others. Most of the dorms are within 10 minutes walking distance from everything, and the bus transit system makes the trip even quicker depending on the location you're going to. There Office of Housing is very helpful and if you're not too late, they will usually help you get into the dorm hall that you request.

Local Atmosphere: All About Lynchburg – Lynchburg has a small town feel. The locals are usually friendly to the students. Liberty has a really good football team and the home games are a huge deal. There is not a lot of nightlife in Lynchburg, but that is also a good thing because it keeps the students out of trouble. There isn't really any good shopping places in Lynchburg, but Roanoke is less than an hour away and has plenty of things to do.

4 College Junior

Weather: Effects Some Activities – Usually feels good. It rains fairly often, but not so much that it is a huge deal.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Ok I Guess – The food thatthey do have is ok, but the menu is kind of repetative. The best stuff is only done very rarely.I also wish the had more fruits available and that the breakfast were better, as it is the worst food they serve

2 College Junior

Parking: Not So Good – Parking pretty much sucks. The best place to find a spot is the furthest away from anything. You can probably tell from a name like "the Pit"

4 College Junior

Athletics: They're Pretty Good – Most of the sports teams are either good, like the football team, or very good, such as the hockey teams.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: It Is Good – LUPD serves its purpose, and I have yet to hear anything really bad about them

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Online Advising – I am an online student and the campus is 2500 miles away. The online advising and financial aid staf makes me feel like I am still part of the greater student body even though I am participating in distance learning.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: New Online Student – I have just started at Liberty University Online after transferring from a "for profit" online university. So far my experience with Liberty University has been great! all of my questions have been answered and they do not make me feel like the only thing they are after is my money!!

4 College Freshman

Diversity: there are tons of random ethnicities from out of state as well as out of country
