My professors and classes are great! I am in the best teaching program in the state here at LC. (Soon to be U of L). The dorms and food are sub par but a lot of schools are that way. They are working on renovating the older dorms and the wifi. As of this year the wifi has been down and one of the dorm building's air kept breaking. There are amazing clubs and programs to get involved in. Overall I think if you are looking for a small homey environment with a good education it is a good option. It is very small which can be annoying however it makes making connections socially and for your profession much easier.

Lynchburg College is an amazing college with so many helpful resources. From numerous extracurricular activities to varsity sports, there is always something to do!
My first year of being a Hornet is almost up. My first comment about this school is that everyone is so friendly and kind, regarding both faculty and students. Everyone helps you when you are down, and that is what you need when you're transitioning to High school to college. I'm terrible at math, in fact, my first test grade was a 65. Ouch. They have study sessions here called "PASS". I started going to every PASS session I could to try and get some sort of help. Because of Lynchburg offering study sessions, my previous test grade was an 86 and I am incredibly proud of my grade rising. The campus is beautiful, my Instagram is amazing now thanks to the sun setting pictures here. I can leave for class 5 minutes before it starts and still gets there on time. Walking to other dorms or the cafe to get food is so easy to get too and quick to walk too. Overall, I wouldn't change being here at Lynchburg College. It's everything I could ask for in a school.
