My overall experience at Liberty University has been great and very encouraging as learning the material to better my education as well as having a positive walk with God. In my classes there were so many students sharing life story to help each other view life differently. Everyone have a story to share; being good or bad.

Liberty has some of the best networking opportunities I've ever seen. There are endless career fairs, professors are always willing to give recommendations, and the career center is brilliant. They have helped me create a brilliant resume - with my very little work experience - that I know will help me in the future.

Liberty has the best professors! I am so thankful for the amazing support we receive from our teachers and they genuinely care about us. They go out of their way to assist us in completing work and receiving the grades we need. They are always willing to talk and pray for us. Often, professor will have prayer time before class starts, allowing student to submit prayer requests for support.
