I absolutely love my college! I'm a senior now and I'm graduating in the Spring of 2018! I love the close relationship I have made with my professors and I'm looking forward to continuing my graduate study here. What I love most about my campus is the many opportunities present, the small classroom size, and the great organizations and greek life here. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great campus to study at!

Our son is in the Honors College program at Lynchburg College. He consistently tells us the professors are extremely available, passionate about teaching, and challenge the students. His honors classes have been especially rigorous and the non-honors courses have not been easy. You must work diligently to earn an A. I was impressed with the well-organized and smoothly run "visit & application" process. President Garren really cares about the students and the college, and his efforts are reflected everywhere. The campus is lovely, the students are friendly, and our son's advisors have been pro-active in guiding his coursework and in directing him to opportunities and internships that he would not have thought about or known about. Students have told us they feel safe on campus, and we do not see non-students roaming around LC. We are very pleased with Lynchburg College and recommend the school highly.
Lynchburg College is a small private school that is very homey. I like the closeness I feel to students and staff members. The professors know you very well because there are small classes, and they are very dedicated and caring in helping students succeed. It is a very comfortable school and there is often a lot of familiar faces. I liked that once I stepped on campus I didn't feel intimidated at all, and rather fell right in with everyone else. The campus is small, and it is impossible to get lost. Classes take about 5 minutes to walk to, and many activities are usually taking place constantly around campus. Lynchburg College also resides in the city of Lynchburg, which offers a lot to do also. There are great shops, and restaurants, and many hikes and trails to do also.
