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.

The university is a great place to go to college if you want a place that is close to your home and if you want a college that gives you excellent knowledge in the field you are going for. The university also as small class sizes so that you get a better experience with your professors, where the professors have more time to help you learn your field. The professors also are great and easy to talk to if you need help, by either face to face meetings or by email or canvas website. The whole college experience is outstanding except for one thing that I do not like and that is having to go to convocation meetings when if you are an off campus student.
I really like the smaller class sizes and the quality of instruction I've received from all my teachers. In addition to this, there are plenty of organizations and student groups for students to participate in. Regarding what changes I'd like to see:
1)A multi-level parking deck for commuting students
2) Renovations done to the interior of the Rhyne Building (particularly the heating and cooling system)
