Liberty University offers very little value for your 18,000 dollars. The Internet is unreliable and slow, the food feels like a middle school cafeteria, the post office loses packages constantly, and there is no cable TV in the dorms.

Besides offering very little in the way of luxuries my biggest complaint with Liberty University is that total lack of morale on campus. I grew up watching ESPN and hearing about how great college life is. At Liberty everyone leaves on the weekend, very few people enjoy their daily lives and the sports are awful. The Liberty Marching Band is another laughing stock. I can barely tell one song from another and students randomly chant(at least the minority of students who attend our crappy football games) "GO LU".

If you are into any kind of internet gaming or even casual surfing avoid LU. The internet is down consistently. AOL instant messenger works even worse than web pages. Gaming is especially out of the question. My games work probably 70% of the time. The other 30% I spent an hour playing, then at the end I lag out. in 80% of my games there is evenpresent lag. If you don't know what lag is imagine playing Mario and when you press jump, its jumps 2 seconds later.

Don't come here.
questionHey is it true that there's a 3 second hugging rule and no kissing allowed at Liberty?
responseActually, the 3 second hugging rule is considered "grace". The real rule is nothing more than all. In situations with engaged couples, the couples are generally given enough grace for kissing (but probably not making out) to be allowed. And if you're ever caught alone in a private or dark place with someone of another gender...start praying.
responseThe above comment is the typical LU response to the rules. The truth is, there is not a 3 second hug rule, and really none of the rules about cuddling or hugging or anything like that are ever enforced. There is no kissing... I'm not sure what the rule is about kissing off campus. But it's a Christian University... do you really expect them to let people just show PDA everywhere? In response to the actual comment at the top, I really don't know what football games you go to, but LU's football games are pretty dang exciting... LU has plenty of spirit. Maybe you can't tell the difference between the marching band's songs because you're too busy gaming it up in the stands. Seriously, who ever heard of someone complaining about a college because they couldn't play all of their video games? Get a job bro.
