3 College Freshman

Majors: I am very happy with the program. I love it, and would totally do it all over again. My career goals are to be a counselor and work with people who are needing help in depression, suicide, trauma, or anything else. The people I will aim towards are kids, teenagers, and young adults. Also especially women. I don't have a concern. People need help in a lot of places. I will be able to find a job.

3 College Freshman

Majors: At Liberty University, I did not have any trouble getting in. However, you must write an essay on your salvation and testimony. My advice is to be honest in it all.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship yet but will have one. I need it for the degree, but also to see what it is like. I do not want to go into a job head on without seeing more in person what they do. I do not have concerns of finding an internship at this time. Since I am only a freshman, I have not had anything like an apprenticeship or student teaching job.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I love my school a lot. I enjoy the program also. I'm only in my first semester, and working on some subjects mainly just needed to graduate. But I learn from the courses, and the teachers are pretty great. They answer all of my questions; and there is a pretty steady, not bad workload. It's a great school!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The security services here at Liberty are great. They will help you out anytime you need it as well as give people a ride back to their dorms at night if they are leaving from a long night in the Computer Lab. Since this is a Christian school, I would not try anything like smoking or drinking because that could get students in a lot of trouble.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Liberty University has its very own Snow-flex which I find pretty cool. There are many students who like to go up to compete in competitions with others as well as just have fun. There are also a couple of museums on campus as well that students can go visit to learn about how Liberty was first originated from to how it has become the world's number one Christian school today.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The places around campus are good, but after you have been here for a while it kinda gets old. When the new Library opens this fall or spring, there will be more places to choose from which show be pretty good.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are all kinds of guys here at Liberty, you have your city boys, country boys, and then you have the real classy guys. The girls here at Liberty are very classy too. The all have that taste to dress classy and look good which I find very attractive. Most people, like myself, are Southerners so they way we talk might take a little getting use to.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The student life at Liberty University is great, there is always something to do and no one could ever be bored from attending this school. The student center here is amazing as well, students can exercise, play basketball and swim or just hangout whenever they get a chance to. While here at Liberty. they make sure that their students are well taken care off, and it is like your home away from home.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There is a fairly sizable population of many different ethnicity groups represented at Liberty University.

3 College Senior

Parking: The parking on campus is generally adequate. However, parking enforcement is very strict and spots are sometimes not easy to come by. Also, if you do not have the best parking zone pass, then walking to class can be inconvenient.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I like sports but sports aren't the reason people choose Liberty. Liberty has many other great qualities to entice students.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The application process to Liberty University was painless!. I looked up information on their website and talked to someone in admissions to find out what I needed to do to enroll. I filled out an application and sent in all the required paperwork from my prevoius schools (i.e. transcripts). I did not encounter any difficulties or challenges during my process.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The majority of students are well dressed, and naturally attractive.

3 College Junior

Majors: When I first began with Liberty they had a smaller selection of majors to choose from then they do now, and they offer a minor now through LU online when they did not before. I chose business finance because it chose me. A few years ago I began to work for a bank part time as a teller. It did not take long for me to catch on and exceed expectations. I was promoted within one month of employment. About a year later I had to take some time off with the birth of my second son. Upon my return I again exceeded expectations and experienced 3 job upgrades within 6 months. I am now a Financial Specialist and I assist clients with retirement planning, investing, ect.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Liberty University is very unique in that it allows a person to live anywhere in the world and still obtain their degree. I believe this deserves a letter grade of A+ because we can live on campus or in another state while still obtaining our college education.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Nightlife is not really existent. There are things on campus every once in a while.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It is super safe. I have never really felt scared while on or around campus. The city itself is pretty safe too. The LUPD is pretty good. The jump started my car when the battery died. Just beware of the parking Nazi's ... word to the wise park where your supposed too or you will get towed at one point.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Liberty is in a small city; Lynchburg, Va. So there isn't too much going on the shopping is neutral. You have Target, Wal-Mart, Khols, Best Buy and a few other places just across the way. And a dollar theater right there too. Over all Liberty is pretty centrally located. There are a few places to eat. There are parks and paths within a 15 min. drive. It's a super safe area. The schools football games and hockey matches are always fun. All and all it's pretty great if your looking for a low key college experience.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug safety at Liberty University is well maintained. I would say they are very strict about keeping a professional and moral look about them. Students are fined for substance abuse and expelled after warnings. But like any school, it all matters on who you hang out with.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Despite what people assume about LU, it is a mostly accepting school if you are gay, have a bad past, had problems with the law, etc... I have several gay friends there, some in student leadership, friends who used to be drug dealers, some friends who had other criminal records. The school is all about loving you for who you are.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places that take our flames cash such as: Texas Roadhouse, Buffalo Wild Wings, Bojangles, the Drowsey Poet, Applebees, TGIF's, and many others. If a restaurant doesn't take our flames cash it normally has specific nights during the week when it gives us discounts. It's very affordable and you can find many types of different of restaurants are available less than five minutes from campus and even in walking distance.

Campus Strictness: Although every one gripes about the "strict" rules we have at Liberty University, they are actually rules I have come to appreciate. Some of the rules that are often complained about are no watching R rated movies, no drinking/smoking/drugs, 12 AM curfew on weekdays, 12:30 on weekends, modest clothing, no shorts or sweats in class, etc. For me, most R rated movies do little else but entertain, if that, for about 2 hours. Most of the student body is underage, and there really are no health benefits or academic benefits of drinking/smoking/using drugs. Almost everything in Lynchburg closes at 10 PM so there really is no need to be out past 12 AM anyway, and lastly, there is no reason not to look nice and put together for classes, and there is never a reason for immodest clothing.

Health & Safety: While at Liberty University I felt safe at all times. LUPD always had someone available to help, whether it was to report a stolen item, or to give an escort back to one's dorm at night. They did regular testing of the fire alarms and the security alarms. Liberty, even though still being an open campus, has taken extra safety and security measures by building the tunnel under the highway and railroad tracks. Not only are students able to walk through campus safely, but even get on and off campus without walking over live railroad tracks. I never felt safer than when I was at Liberty.

Diversity: Liberty University is a very diverse University, there are many different nationalities represented on campus and online and there is an entire department that hosts events for international students. Also, Liberty University accepts people from many different religions even though it was founded as a Baptist college. Although Liberty is a Christian University it does not hesitate to allow those struggling with their sexual orientation, and has hosted speakers who have struggled with homosexuality at Convocation. Liberty University is a very diverse in all regards and welcomes all.
