If I could do it all over again I would have honestly not chose this school as my number one. The landscape of this school is very beautiful and well kept but the organization of the school itself is a mess. The website of this college is very confusing because it will sometime revert you back to the old one. Another thing is the cost to go to this school. This university is one of the most expensive in the state of North Carolina and will eventually lose enrollment because of the high cost.

I love my school. It is very small and personable. All of the professors are expert and care about each individual. I consider LR as my home away from home.

LR has something to do all of the time. All but one of the teachers go above and beyond what is required of them. I would go to LR again despite the large amount of debt that is accumulating quickly.
