Liberty is a great Christian university for those who are religious and non-religious alike. While the rules can feel a little overbearing at times, the main focus of the school is to cultivate well-rounded students with an acceptable education, critical thinking skills, and communication skills. Many activities available to students including a vast array of high level sports teams, concerts, recreation centers, a fitness center with the best equipment, all at a relatively affordable price. All individuals getting ready to earn a degree should seriously consider this university!
Review Liberty University
Liberty University has an environment unlike any other college I've visited. It is a Christian college and both the students and the faculty take it seriously. The staff are so ready to help, whether it be finding a new scholarship you can enter or which housing arrangement would be best for you. And though they are strict about following the rules, the campus is very safe. There are lots of fun things to do for free right on campus, from student-led concerts to rock climbing to mountain biking and kayaking at the adjacent Camp Hydaway and Liberty Mountain Trail System. Liberty is not for everyone, but it sure is for me!
Great over the phone service! I called several times and they were always eager to help. The thing I liked most about them was that they were never pushy! I called several other schools inquiring more information about their programs and several of them put me on the spot with their questions. Other schools' over the phone service, seemed as if they were getting commission from the phone calls. Liberty University never made me feel awkward on the phone. They waited until I wanted to take the next step and were ready to help when I was. I couldn't have been more pleased with their service.
