    Nice school as long as Jerry Jr. keeps his mouth shut politically. I highly recommend Liberty University to anyone seeking a higher education degree, whether it be a Bachelor's, Master's, or Doctorate. The tuition is one of the lowest in the nation. Highly recommended. ...Continue reading

    I attended LU's Zaki Gordon Center for the Cinematic Arts. As for the atmosphere, its not a place oriented for the average queer Jewish socialist (me) but more towards Christian students wishing for academia that share their views. That being said unlike many campuses there's many fun sober activities to do right on campus. Seriously though be careful about the people, the stero type is people will act diffrent at school than they would at home. ...Continue reading

    Great school, recommend to anyone looking to come to the fastest growing school in the US. TONS of things to do on campus. Campus life is a lot of fun. Living off campus is a lot better than living on campus in my opinion. Liberty is very unique. If you want a good college experience w/o a bunch of party idiots, and no liberalism, go here! ...Continue reading

    Love this school. Steps are being taken by the administration to move on from our extremely conservative past. The President makes some stupid remarks, there is no dodging that.

    Although there are some rules I'm not too fond of (off-campus housing mainly) I love it here. The Lord's presence is felt when you set foot on campus. Liberty has provided me with the different resources I needed in different seasons of life. The faculty and staff is so loving, it feels like a family here. It can be easy to feel overlooked in a student body of over 14,000 but at liberty I feel seen. ...Continue reading

    Liberty is a great campus, always full of students. The only bad expereince I've had was with Biology. This is an awesome school The professors are amazing & genuinely care about teaching.

    The Christianity of the school does not represent well with many non-christians, but the opportunities and facilities are absolutely amazing.

    The school is designed for 18-21 year old sheltered children. The internet was slow, but more importantly, CENSORED. Not just censoring adult themed stuff, but actual news websites, music, any food site that mentions wine, etc. Judgmental, fake students and professors. Constant surveillance and control. Definite cult-vibe. I was here for 3 12 years before transferring. ...Continue reading

    LU gets a bad rep for being insanely conservative. In 2014 they took in 4,200 freshmen but they are clear unprepared to handle that many people in terms of wifi, number of food vendors, and famous transportation. I can see how with fewer people it would be awesome, hopefully they hurry up with expansions. ...Continue reading

    LU is a really awesome school all the way around. I don't think I will ever want to leave. The professors are brilliant yet so down to earth.

    Liberty is one of a kind. They have grown by leaps and bounds over the past years, and they make every effort to not let the growth be detrimental to students.

    If you're looking to party this IS NOT THE PLACE , people here can be very judgmental and will snitch if they think you party. Liberty does not live up to its hype much, some features are better than others. The library is a nice one touch dough. Plenty of opportunities if you are willing to look for them and work hard. Only truly annoying part is a lot of the hypocrites on campus. Other than that, it is alright. I try to work things out with professors in regards to grading but tim faber is one professor that is too arrogant to listen avoid him. The school will say no to you every chance they can especially if you have a bad prof. ...Continue reading
