University of Lynchburg Reviews
I have found my home at the University of Lynchburg. Moving from MA to VA was a terrifying pursuit, but exceptionally worth it. I have made the best friends of my life. I have joined a sorority, became a member of the Westover Honors College, and became Vice President of Recruitment for my Panhellenic Council. The education I receive at this institution is like no other. I have created both professional and personal relationships with my professors, and I couldn't ask for better!
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.
