    The Christian community is incredible! The people on campus are the absolute most gracious, kind, and hospitable students around the country. The academics are rigorous and ensure a solid collegiate education. The professors are extremely gracious yet very good at what they do to effectively give students a solid overall education. The campus is very aesthetically pleasing, with many different housing options of all varieties. The food on campus allows for many diverse and wholesome options that provide students a vast array of solid choices. With a very active police department on campus, the student safety is never in question.

    I can't describe how helpful each and every employee with Liberty University has been to me during my application and enrollment process. I've been able to chat live with numerous individuals who've been nothing short of amazing. Each question I ask is answered promptly, and I've had lots of them! For someone going through the college application process alone, I've felt beyond supported by all employees I've had interactions with. Tuition is not only affordable, but their online program is exactly what I need since I work full-time. The flexibility is unmatched. I cannot thank Liberty University enough for making this chaotic and sometimes intimidating process nothing but smooth-sailing and enjoyable.
    Great experience attending Liberty University online. It's been awesome getting to attend classes right from home and work towards my college degree from a different state. The teachers and student accounts department are easily approachable and ready to help and answer your questions. Love that they call once the semester has started to check in and see how things are going. As an full time working adult, it's been a great way to dive back into education. So grateful that I chose Liberty as my school!
