| I have attended Liberty for four years now. 2 of those years I spent as a Resident Student living oncampus, currently I am using the LU online program to finish up my degree due to my working nights fulltime. I had a postive experiance & a negative experience. Like any college, you have cliques and you have people who think they are holier than thou. The student leadership ( RA,SLD,Prayer Leader) is GREATLY lacking & shows alot of favoritism. On my one hall we had a RA who transferred her sister from another dorm so she could be a prayer leader on our hall, just as an example. I hated living on campus. The brother-sister dorm was a joke. I did however think the professors were amazing, they were willing to work with me when my mother-in law committed suicide during finals week and were completely understanding. The Nursing Program was REALLY great, they had an awesome lab & clinical sites ( I was a nursing major before I decided I am not that big of a fan of blood. C'est la vie.) Overall I was pleased with the school. The student body was not very welcoming, however the friends I did make there I have been friends with for 4 years ( even though we are all in different states now , alumnis or graduating.) |

| Over Priced, Non-Professional, A waste of time!!!|
I am 80K$ + in debt, have a degree that wasn't accredited even after I was promised it was, have no chances of getting into a grad school without completing a 2nd undergrad degree, work a job that is no where near related to my degree, and wanting my time and money back! At LU, you are either in crowd or out crowd - Just like high school really... Staff bully you into making choices and then lie to you if you don't agree, if you aren't one of the IN students you have no hopes of getting anyway. Staff and faculty pick their favorites and play that hand. I regret to say that my time to LU was miserable (I felt like a loner and was treated as such) I worked my tail off and got nearly straight A's (graduated top of my class in High School) and still got no where except deep in debt, living job to job (sometimes two at the same time) trying to push a useless degree, and wanting my money and time back so I could have picked a better school.

| I was a distant learning student and I spent the last 2.5 years attending courses at Liberty University. Yes the general attitude is Christian-conservative but I interacted through the discussion boards with some folks that were quite liberal on the point under discussion. |
For the most part the faculty are quite competent in their fields of instruction and only on one occassion did I cross paths with a very arrogant professor who just so happened to teach one of the required religion courses. Aside from this Prince, the experience was pleasant.
The courses are comprehensive and vary in complexity. I pursued a degree in Criminal Justice which is the career path that I have been following for the last 22 years. Given my exposure to the mechanics of the field, I was prepared for much of the material that was being instructed but I did have the opportunity to learn new information and expand on my previous knowledge.
During my time there I experienced only one minor glitch with scheduling courses but the staff was highly responsive to my complaint and corrected it immediately. Financial Aid was flawless.Overall Liberty is a great institution but I would recommend that potential applicants have a basic understanding of Christianity and are familiar with Scripture.
