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.

I am doing online classes through LBC and I am only a few classes in but I have loved the experience so far.
Everyone has been so helpful and kind, ready to answer any question I might have. The tutoring department has been an excellent resource for me many times already. I am so glad I choose Lancaster Bible 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.
