Liberty University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (45)
I'm currently doing a Double Major w/ Minor here at Liberty. My experience with Liberty is so far good. My only thing is "certain" professors should help the students when they ask for help. But overall I think this is a good school. And I'm glad I've chosen to go to Liberty University.
I really enjoyed attending Liberty University! The campus was beautiful and the atmosphere on the campus was so uplifting. The students were so kind and helpful whether they new you or not. The professors were wonderful and so understanding and helpful! This university is also excellent for networking I have been able to meet so many famous and successful Artist through my department, some being the creator of the Action Bible, the artist of the Fairly Odd Parents, and the producer for everything Disney.
Liberty University offers an amazing online program for all disciplines. I originally started in the Psychology program and then transferred to the Christian Counseling degree program. Every textbook for those classes are books that I will keep forever. Each instructor is easily accessible via email or Blackboard. I love that you can call Academic Advising all hours of the day and get a live voice. Graduation was fantastic and so memorable. #LUGrad
Liberty University is a school that offers it all! All dorm life and academics are founded on Christian morals. The teaching staff genuinely cares about their students and want to see them succeed in the spiritual life as well as their chosen vocation. The campus is full of activities and there is something for everyone. You will never be bored.
I received a quality education and enjoyed my time at Liberty University. The professors were very helpful and insightful. I am happy with my choice.
This college is a wonderful place. The professors are knowledgeable and care about the students growth. The campus is a beautiful and serene place.
Liberty university is unique in many ways. However the way in which their uniqueness most effected me was their teaching staff. All of the professors at Liberty are required to have a certain number of years experience actually practicing the subject they teach. All of my professors were ex-military or ex-police officers, ex-lawyers, ex-FBI, or otherwise experts in their fields. The professors do not just have book knowledge. I know when I was listening to a lecture I wasn't just listening to something out of a book. I was listening to something out of a life. That made learning so much better. There are many good qualities Liberty has, but this I believe is one of the most influential.
Liberty was such a fun place to go to school. It's easy to make a lot of friends, there's always a lot of fun things going on and activities to do, events to attend, etc. There are however, a lot of rules, including a strict room check and dress code. I didn't like having a curfew as an adult, and not having any freedom/privacy. If I had lived off campus I think I would have liked it better.
As I read the long negative reviews on LU, I am lead to assume that the poor experiences people may have had there were results of unproductive habits and poor decision making of the students leaving poor reviews. I am a senior Engineering student and LU has provided an incredible opportunity for me to learn theory and skills in my field, and I had an engineering position lined up a month before graduation. With that said, success is 100% dependent on students' effort and work ethic. LU simply provides the opportunity. Financially, LU provides enough scholarships for me that the total cost was comparable to going to a state school. If you are willing to grow up, work hard, take responsibility for your actions, and take ownership of your career path, then I believe you will have a positive experience at Liberty University.
Okay, first off, the school doesn't even offer up-to-date materials for their classes. The lack of leadership in the online community is mind boggling. I just took a Business Law class that I completed in my Bachelor's degree. It was pointless. I passed the class with a B- and get this, I didn't even have the book. Oh and because I have a B-, I am on academic probation which is ridiculous because the grade is still a B. I dropped a class for the Spring term and they sent funding back to my loan servicer which in turn caused a 5,000$ balance on my account. However, I was still enrolled in 6 credits for the term and any other school would have just taken back the money for the one class. They really are all about the money. Also, don't look at this school if you plan on living off campus and having help with living expenses. They put off campus students in what's called tier 2 housing which means less aid to help you. Also, their books are twice as much than most schools and some schools you don't even have to pay for books. I'm going back to UMUC where teachers are actually involved and will respond to your questions within 24-48 hours.
