I have been very blessed to attend LibertyQuite BrightCriminal
I have been very blessed to attend Liberty University. It has challenging courses in a wide variety of fields. It is very simple to get tutoring and speak with advisers/professors, who are always friendly and available.However, many students do tend to act quite self-righteous, seeming to be too pure and important to become involved in your problems or dirty their reputation. It is a bit disheartening, but there are also so many students who genuinely care about serving God through loving the people he has made. The community at LU is great and if you apply yourself and escape your comfort zone, you will make a lot of friends.

Hi! I absolutely have had the opposite experienceQuite BrightPublic Health
Hi! I absolutely have had the opposite experience then most people who have posted on this website and It honestly makes me really sad that you all had a below averaged experience at Liberty. I am an out of state student from Florida. That being said we really are not southern as far as our culture. I have loved the cute southern style liberty has and have had an amazing experience at Liberty University as far as getting involved I am 100% extroverted I have found the most amazing friends! My department has been amazing with the friendliest staff and professors.Going to Liberty was honestly the best decision I have ever made! I hope it is for future students. Also I hope that those of you who had a terrible experience that it improved at your next university!

I transferred to Liberty University from Virginia TechQuite Bright
I transferred to Liberty University from Virginia Tech for the positive Christian atmosphere. It was the worst decision I've ever made.

1) Academics. Depending on the major, the academics here are a joke. They will over Christianize every single subject.

2) People. Do not even get me started. I was so depressed I almost killed myself because I had no friends because I swore/ did not believe the exact same things other people believed. My roommates were assholes who would play music loudly till midnight and had no consideration for other humans besides themselves. I have never felt more depressed or alone in my life.

3) The college experience. THERE IS NOTHING TO DO IN LYNCHBURG. STAY AWAY OR YOU WILL DIE OF BOREDOM. Literally my roommates would drive to Roanoke for donuts. That was the fun thing to do on the weekend.

4) DO NOT COME TO THIS SCHOOL UNLESS YOU HAVE A CAR. Need I emphasize again, THERE IS NOTHING TO DO ON CAMPUS ON THE WEEKENDS. LU empties out on the weekends. People escape to other universities.

5) Advising. ADVISERS HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. I was so depressed that I was failing all of my classes. I decided to withdraw from all but one because I did not want my transcript affected. My advisor said that it was fine to keep my one credit class and that I could keep my housing. Turns out, she was wrong. You have to be in 3 credits in order to keep your housing. I got evicted and had to commute to lynchburg from Northern Virginia for 2 months in order to finish the therapy I started. I also had to live out of my car for several days.

They do not know what they are talking about and will screw you over. STAY AWAY.
