Most colleges today seem to make you choose between academics or community life. Wither that's parties, trips, or even just opportunities to connect. Yet even when community is chosen over school, the relationships rarely seem anything more than superficial. That's where I think LBC is unique, because there I've never had more chances to grow genuine relationships that might just last instead of fizzling out, and all the while no academics needed to be sacraficed. Though there are always those 'special' few we could do without :). So while no college has it perfect, I think the potential for lasting is there, so long as LBC continues to strive towards fruitful growth and change over tradition that many bible colleges fall into.
