LU first and foremost just to clarify and be real about the situation is a private and very conservative institution that prides itsself around a christian environment. This school has morals which means your not going to catch any parties with heavy drinking going on around campus which can be a good thing for those looking for a clean, secure, and serene campus life. This can be a hassle for those that see fun as drinking intensively, partying hard, and etc. There are rules such as a dress code (which honestly is changing like everyday because Ive wore sweat pants, tshirts, and everything to class), curfew(which is like 12:30 or 1:00…sounds bad but considering your in Virginia the only thing open at this time is a walmart and a Sheetz), and other minor rules. Parking is a hassle sometimes considering there are a lot of students and not parking spaces to put it plainly, so in knowing this do not park just anywhere because LUPD takes pride in giving you parking tickets. As far as academics is concerned this school accepts pretty much anyone from high school with a decent GPA and SAT score which means this is no Harvard but at the same time I have met many people that have chose this university over schools like Virginia Tech and George Mason just to name a few. The school still manages to rank nationally in many areas of academics even though they have a very high acceptance rank.

My experience at LU has been a one of personal growth. This school has helped me grow tremendously mentally and spiritually. I have met some of the greatest friends I could ever ask for my first year. When I look back on how the faculty and institution has helped me to this point, I feel special as a student. Yes, there are negatives at this school but the good defintely outweighs the bad. Reality is no school is perfect, a school cant possibly please every person on the planet. But if you are looking for a istitution that truly cares about you as a student, provides great memories, a diverse student body, and a place where you can truly grow as a person spirtitually and mentally then this is the place for you.
