University of Lynchburg Reviews
My experience at the University of Lynchburg has been great! I have made many new friends from all across the country, and have experienced diverse situations. I am a student athlete, and all of the equipment we use for lifting is great and new. The classrooms are also very modern. Last semester, I had a class in one of the newer classrooms. The walls in the classroom were all whiteboard, so we could all collaborate during lecture.
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!
