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!
My experience at LBC has brought growth and great experiences. As a Freshman I often marveled at the campus community and the professors that genuinely cared about each student. As my four years are coming to a close, I look back and think about all of the wonderful memories and growth stretches that LBC had given me. I can think of a better school to pursue my counseling major because of the Biblical worldview that is etched within counseling ethics. The courses I have taken have all been beneficial and needed in order to qualify me as a graduate in the counseling program. The only thing that I would change my experience there was that I would be more involved in student activities. The activities that I did participate in changed me the most.
