Lancaster Bible College is unique in that it is a deeply connected, Christ-centered community that focuses on preparing its students to share their faith effectively in their chosen vocation. LBC affords its students the opportunity to learn not only conventionally and from their professors, but also from one another and through the many experiences that the school encourages. Aside from academics, the staff's main goal is to help students succeed in all areas, and offer financial help, scheduling help, and spiritual and emotional support. I would certainly choose my school again!

The professors at Lancaster Bible College are fantastic. They genuinely care about the success of each student both academically and personally. Class sizes are good, and based on the topic of each course. For example, a public speaking class will have 7-14 students, while a theology lecture-type class will have closer to 30. The variety of courses is good within majors--general education is slightly more limited, but not difficult to get in to. Overall, the academic experience at LBC is great!

They are wonderful. The new library is amazing. It's filled with good classrooms, comfy chairs, and pretty cool bookshelves. The Chapel hasn't changed; it's still as great as ever. The Sebastian Academic Center is good, but the chairs are a little old and some could use replacing. The academic programs are awesome. We just received the ability to grant double-degrees to most of the programs. If you're in one of the counseling master's programs like me, you can actually come out with 3 degrees in five years! They are a Masters in Counseling (specific to the one you choose), Bachelor's in Professional Counseling (the program you would start in), and a Bachelor's in Biblical Studies.
