Lenoir-Rhyne University Reviews
Review Lenoir-Rhyne University
The campus at Lenoir-Rhyne University is stunning! It is one of the smaller college campus' if you compare it to colleges like Duke, NC State or others but it is friendly, family-like, and faculty is concerned about you. The class size is small so that as a student you get to know your professor and they get to know you. You are not a number, you are a person. That makes learning much more meaningful.
There is a decent amount of racial diversity on campus, however, most of the non-white students are athletes. Most everybody is some form of Christian - the school is ELCA Lutheran and probably 15% of students are Lutheran, however, the majority of students come from a baptist background. If you asked the whole student population their political affiliation I wouldn't be surprised if a slight majority came from republican households, however, for the most part students are apathetic to politics (although there is a very strong College Republican chapter). I would say that the students are very accepting and welcoming of diversity.
The party scene at LR typically revolves around one of three things - each with their own pros/cons - on campus fraternity parties, off campus house parties, local clubs/bars. Fraternity parties (especially Pi Kappa Phi) are great when they are not on suspension. The houses are easy to walk to and the parties are huge, unfortunately the school (particularly security and the greek life coordinator) are overly strict with the fraternities and are quick to put them on social probation. Off campus house parties are typically put on by the different athletic teams, these parties are really fun, but very exclusive and if you choose to go you will likely have to run from the police at some point. The local clubs have events (typically hosted by Omega Psi Phi) most weekends, and these events draw a large percentage of the students, and can get very rowdy and crowded.
