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'm a senior now and I'm graduating in the Spring of 2019! I love the close relationship I have made with my professors. I've enjoyed the small school atmosphere. 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!
The University of Lynchburg is a small liberal arts campus that tailors to the needs of every student. There are a lot more resources on campus for students to achieve in the setting they best feel comfortable with because the campus has transitioned officially to a University. The students, staff, and professors are there to guide you and help you grow and prosper in a new environment. There is always a friendly face and someone who is willing to open doors for you, both figuratively and literally. If I had to change something about the University of Lynchburg it would be the availability of food on the campus. There are not many food options on campus and the various times that the cafeteria and other places are open make it hard to know what is available. Although the availability of food is one thing I would change, the overall atmosphere of the campus is warm and welcoming and ready for anyone willing to contribute to keeping the vibe on campus lively.
