Lancaster Bible College - Capital Seminary & Graduate School Reviews

LBC is a great school! I am part of a gap year program there called One Life, which I would absolutely recommend to a friend. It has allowed me to travel to Israel, the Grand Canyon, and countless other places along with living in a community type environment and earning 30 college credits. As for LBC it self, it is a smaller, Christian school in Lancaster, PA. LBC is made up of like-minded individuals that are pursuing Christ. In addition, although this campus is very small (with plenty of room to grow), every part of it is gorgeous. And with Lancaster city close by, there are countless options to be entertained. One change I hope LBC will make is to grow their campus. Although their sports teams perform at a high level for a D3 school, they only have one basketball court that must be shared with other sports teams throughout the week. They also should have a larger more weight-lifting facility. Ultimately, I would recommend LBC/One Life to anyone searching for a college.

The environment at LBC is incredible. I was very hesitant applying to Lancaster Bible College, as it seemed like the place everybody (Christians, at least) went. But from the very beginning in the admissions process, to my professor's and financial advisers, everyone has been incredible! The biggest reason I would recommend LBC to someone is because of the environment the faculty creates.
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!
