Liberty University is a great school. The faculty here is very knowledgeable about the subjects that they teach. They're always willing to help students do better in the class. Everyone here is so nice! Many guys hold the doors open for the girls. People here are so encouraging and it's nice to see that everyone here pushes each other to grow in their faith. It's encouraging to see so many other young adults who want to pursue Christ in everything that they do. We also have this event called convocation every Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, and we have famous artists, motivational speakers, and even politicians come and give us words of wisdom. It's also nice to have the president of our school come down to convocation and take time to talk to us. Many people will never see their campus president, but not at Liberty.
Fantastic Christian Conservative University. Loved every moment in person and online. Love how we have a school of medicine and school of law, NCAA D1 Athletics, a 1.1+ Billion dollar endowment, and over 100k students.

President Trump gave his first college commencement speech as sitting US President at Liberty's graduation! Very prestigious honor and a fun time. Its awesome being surrounded by like-minded people.
