I have so many mixed feelings about this school. I fell in love with it at age 15 during, yes, CFAW. I just knew this was where God wanted me to be.

In the end, I only spent a semester here before getting myself out. I know, many will probably say I wasn't there long enough to have such strong feelings about my experience. And to whoever may think that, I disagree.

I had never before experienced so much struggle and decline in my faith than when I was here. The majority of the Christians are lukewarm, as I myself became. That passion for Christ that you see when you first get there began to feel so fake, so forced. No one was truly friendly or kind. No one really cared about you as an individual. I felt so alone while I was there that I began to feel depressed. I began therapy with my psychology professor, and I didn't feel like s/he truly cared about my spiritual growth at all. During our first session, s/he threw a book in my face and told me to buy it, study it, and come back to him/her. It was all about money. S/he straight up said that day that before we "truly began" therapy, s/he was "testing me to see if I was truly ready to begin to heal" before we progressed. I'm not even making that up. I came back for our next scheduled session and there was a sign on the door; s/he was not available.

I don't want to hate this school, but I couldn't stay. We as Christians need to be out in the world preaching the Good News, not hiding in Lynchburg being full of ourselves.

I suppose I can't say much about the educational aspect/financial aid/ etc. because I really wasn't there long enough, but the fake atmosphere and downright cruel people ruined what I thought would be a beautiful experience. I will also say that after taking a year off, I had considered going back, but the school really is far too expensive. The school had many positives, and I am glad for everyone who has a good experience here, but the negatives outweighed it for me.

responseWe shared teh same experience, i fell in love with it at cfaw when i was bout 16, only stayed for one semester,, the ppl get fake fast. which is terrible.
questionI am sorry to hear this. Could you recommend a Christian college?
