2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I strongly dislike everything except for the academics. Apart from that, I feel as though I am wasting my life out here.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: This is an all-girls school.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Always spots, not too far away from the main part of campus.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Best part of the school- the ratings say it all.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Everything comes from Sysco, they have improved a bit recently (probably due to all the complaints) but there is really no variety.

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is nothing out here but mountains and Sheetz.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: We. Are. In. The. Middle. Of. NOWHERE.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: No violence, no theft, no break ins, but the health center is a pain.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The teams here are strong, and the fitness facility is very nice.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Never crowded labs, wifi generally works well.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If you are anti-drug, you will very rarely or never be pressured into doing something you do not want to.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Again, we are practically in the middle of no where. The only food establishments who can afford to set up around here are fast-food or chains. A few local restaurants, and by that I mean two.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Academic violations seem to be taken more seriously than alcohol/drug/law violations.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: A majority of the students receive financial aid or scholarships.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: There are only shuttles that occasionally go to Walmart and Target.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: We are in the middle of no where, finding off campus housing is difficult and not worth it.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Everything but December, January, and February are nice. It is January right now and it has't gotten above 25F.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: You meet girls from all backgrounds economically and nationally speaking, aside from the fact that it is only one gender (girls).

4 College Freshman

Academics: This is the only good thing about the school in my opinion. The honor code gives us privileges such as self-scheduled exams and staff are very helpful and available.

Campus Housing: Some dorms are good or okay, and some are terrible. Not all have laundry/elevators and issues are not taken care of in a timely manner.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Lynchburg is the closest town and it's pretty much run by Liberty, but it has everything you need, mall, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, Walmart, Sam's Club, etc. about twenty minutes away. Now that's what I consider and would rather go to, but Madison Heights is about ten minutes and has a Walmart, Sheetz and some places to eat. Amherst is like five minutes and has a Food Lion, CVS, and a few places to eat. A lot of girls go to other schools for parties and athletic events, those schools are about an hour, maybe more away. There are a few schools closer, but for some reason not a lot of girls go to them. There are also some historical places to visit and DC and the beach are about four hours away, I believe, if you really want to.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I wouldn't say that our school is super diverse, but the girls are very accepting of the diversity that we do have. You can easily keep your beliefs without feeling peer pressure to change. You will still make friends no matter what you look like, who you vote for, or who you like.

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: We are an all women's college so no rating for guys, but there is an all boy's school about an hour away. There is no shortage of Lily Pulitzer or J. Crew on campus. Same goes for the boys school, lots of vineyard vines and bow ties. With that being said there are also a number of girls who are not so into the preppy look. I would consider our campus very open and accepting, you can find people who have similar taste as you easily.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Health Center is very easy to deal with and are very nice. The only thing to complain about is that they are closed on the weekends which can be a pain. Campus Safety is also very friendly and present. We are a closed campus so between six at night and six in the morning you have to be with a student to get on campus as you are stopped before entering. You can also easily call campus safety if you are having any issues. The same goes for the health center. You can easily call and make an appointment or try to walk in and see if they have extra time.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everyone is very supportive of each other, but if you go to games it is to support your friends. We are an all women's college so it's not like there are football or baseball games to attend, but you could always go to another school for that.
