4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Public transportation is pretty good! There are buses everywhere and they run all the time. The only time that transportation gets a little hasty is after like ten and then there is a bit of a wait for the buses. However if you really need a ride or feel unsafe you can call campus police!

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on campus can be a nightmare. It's important to arrive early if you want to find a good parking space. There are tons of lots to park at, the walking distance is just a little far. But when you take the size of our school and the amount of people into consideration its pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a decent amount of financial aid and it was actually easier than I thought it would be. I suggest making regular in person appointments to make sure everything is running smoothly. Also the earlier you start your search for scholarships, grants and aid the better. The people that I spoke with were pretty understanding. It's important to just talk to a representative in either financial aid, the student advocate office or in student accounts and just tell them whats going on. They will try their hardest to help you!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on Liberty's campus. It's really big but it also feels comfortable and small. Campus security is present but not over bearing!

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Liberty has the best of the best of most everything minus it's dependable WiFi lol. But overall it is more impressive than other schools. The school has a saying that "if its christian it should be better." So that's what they try to do.

Campus Housing: Living on campus at Liberty is awesome! As a freshman, you live on a hall with about 60 to 70 other people. People are very friendly and welcoming. Everyone usually becomes very close living on the hall and student leadership works to build dorm unity. The only downsides are that some of the dorms are older and you share a room with two other people. Though, the school is building new dorms that will be used in a year or two. From the pictures I have seen and things I have heard, these dorms are supposed to be very nice.

3 College Senior

Diversity: While Liberty is very diverse ethnically and by economic background, there is little diversity when it comes to other topics. Of course being a Christian university results in less diversity when it comes to political beliefs, religion or sexual orientation.

4 College Junior

Diversity: You know what you are getting into if you apply for Libery University. Its not hidden message. Its a Christ centered campus. I go to Liberty Online and it comes through. I don't have much knowledge of the on campus life.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Christ-centered school atmosphere; most people are nice and friendly

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Close proximity to school; not too expensive. Most of the options require you to have a roommate or share apartment

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Several housing options, but rules are strictly enforced. No oncampus housing for grad students

2 College Senior

Transportation: No reliable public transportation, besides shuttle

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is kind of moody and the city is typically labelled 'Drenchburg' because it rains so often. However, it's usually fair and nice outside

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There's not really a drug scene at Liberty as far as I know. The rules are pretty strict on being a no-drug or drinking policy, so you're not likely to see any drugs around.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of easy fast food places around Liberty to get to, like Sonic and Taco Bell, etc. There's good variety from Osaka's, a really great shop with good japanese food, to Buffalo Wild Wings to Olive Garden. The off-campus food places aren't that expensive, too.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Liberty provides a lot of scholarships to the average student with a decent gpa.
most of the tuition i had to pay was taken care of by the liberty scholarships and by the fasfa, the rest that i have to pay is manageable for the average person.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: there are alot of restaurants nearby, and a lot of variety. there's definately better choices, but i love the sonic that's near the back of the campus

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The scenery is simply breath taking. The people are friendly, even further in Lynchburg past liberty. There is an air of safety and just Christ centered people everywhere. the blue ridge mountains and the elevation of the school make it's scenery truly breath taking.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Excellent. By far the most comprehensive and complete University, even for a first timer like me. It has been a pleasant experience, that encourages inner growth that will last a lifetime. Can't wait to achieve my degree

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I connect with fellow classmates/professors through social networks like facebook and even have access to apps like LUO that premieres campus life and make even the farthest of champions feel at home at Liberty.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: friendly, faith and spiritually oriented environment makes for a wonderful place to learn and grow and even spend time with family, friends, colleagues, and classmates alike

5 College Sophomore

Academics: great teachers, friendly peers, welcoming student atmosphere, strong dyncamics, and plenty of tutors and assistance throughout all levels of academia.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have amazing athletics at Liberty. Pulling from an article that is in the "Liberty Journal," our campus magazine that I have on my desk - 15 athletic teams went to national championships this year, 20 different men's and women's teams compete in NCAA Division I, and 31 club sports teams are available for athletes.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The great thing about Liberty is that there is always someone willing to walk to to Walmart or back to your dorm at night. Very often the brother/sister dorms will have connections where the "brothers" make sure all the "sisters" get back to their dorm safely if they need to stay out past dark.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Virginia is an unpredictable state to live in. Lynchburg is probably the most unpredictable part of the state in terms of weather. Sunday it's snowing and by Friday it's sunny and warm. Then Monday rolls around and it rains straight for over a week. Be flexible with your wardrobe.
