School has some very kind faculty and theQuite BrightAthletics/Training
School has some very kind faculty and the small classes are great for one on one help. However if you are not on a sports team you are not of much value in anyone's eyes at this school. The school is also severely overpriced and the money is not seen through any of the resources. They do not provide great athletic/exercise accessibility to anyone that is not an athlete or in season as an athlete. Many of the dorms are also very poorly maintained. With a tuition as high as this, you would think that you would see it carry over in to some aspect of student life. Social life is enjoyable at first. If you enjoyed high school, Lenoir Rhyne is no different. It is not as much of a college experience as it is simply a bigger high school. If given the chance I would have gone almost anywhere else.If all you care about is getting one on one time with faculty members, then this school is perfect. Otherwise,the negatives far outweigh the few positives.

Question
LRU prepared me forPsychology
LRU prepared me for graduate school and then my masters from LRU as well. Great teachers, very committed to the student's success. Helped me in finding my job that I have now. I can't say enough good things. 2 of my kids have gone to LRU and we're a Bear family.

Question
When I began looking for a college nearBrightComputer Science
When I began looking for a college near the end of high school LRU was one of my schools I was considering because of how close it was to where I live. But that was not the only reason I considered it. I also looked at school much farther away from home, but LR won out in the end. I loved my time there. I made so many friends and met my fiance there! I have recently found a great job in the computer science field and I'm thrilled. Compared to other people I've met in the field with similar degrees, I know I received a more comprehensive education than many of my peers that graduated from much larger colleges. I believe that it had to do with the time that my professors took to thoroughly cover the material in my classes. I read what some people say about LRU in these reveiws and it blows me away about some of the negative comments. LRU is not in a huge town and have tons of night life in Hickory, NC, but that's not what I wanted in a school anyway. I wanted a place where I could receive a good education to prepare me for a real job market after graduation. Well... that's what I got... and then some!
