College Freshman

Local Area: I dont have a car so i dont really get out much other than the drive to church and the activities we do there with the congregation

3 College Junior

Local Area: Let's just say, you get the feeling REALLY quickly that you're in a small part of Virginia.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: It's a very historic town, having quite a number of historic locations dating back to the civil war.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: LU students are well known by locals for many of the community service projects they've started and accomplished.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: I can see the potential in Lynchburg. It is slowly acquiring a college town feel. However, Liberty's online program overshadows the undergraduate program and may be too big, in my opinion. Nonetheless, the online program is good for the local economy (hotels, restaurants, etc.).
