Lenoir-Rhyne University Reviews
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.
I like that the professors are willing to help and make it a priority to learn everyone's name. The students are people and not just a number. All staff, including security and cafeteria staff, were friendly. I feel like the food could be potentially better. The dorms need more attention than what they get. Cheap paint and having to deal with mold constantly is terrible.
