Review Lynchburg College
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.
Being from the area, I knew there was not much for students to do around town. Although, with Liberty University being close by there are more things coming about to do. Parking is a pain if you do not get there at 8am if you commute. The dorms, I thought were tiny and not well maintained, burning hot during the summer time and freezing in the winter never comfortable. Athletics are the biggest thing on campus. Professors seem genuinely interested in your academic success. I feel many students are preppy and feel as if they are superior to you. Some professors are very quick to try and push a political belief system on you. They say they want you to be your own person but want you to conform to their beliefs. While some professors bash other universities in the state (mainly JMU). The work load is not hard, but you have to stay on top of it though. Most English courses are "Writing Enriched" meaning you have to write 3-5 essays a semester. All classes I had essays for finals not exams
