Lynchburg College is a private, independent, residential college located on 250 beautiful acres in central Virginia.
The student body numbers 2,800 undergraduate and graduate students. LC offers 40 undergraduate majors, 57 minors, 13 pre-professional programs, and 18 graduate degrees, all supported by a strong liberal arts foundation.
But what makes us unique?
Two doctoral programs
LC is located in the foothills of the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains in central Virginia. There’s no shortage of hikes, climbs, rivers, and streams. If you’re more the city type, head to Washington, D.C. (180 miles) or Richmond, Va. (120 miles).
The LC spirit
And then there’s the LC spirit. New students quickly learn that being friendly and helpful is an LC tradition. We are a truly caring community; you’ll hear it called “family” again and again.
Vision 2020: Strategic Plan
Through our comprehensive strategic plan, we clearly state our intention to enhance the signature Lynchburg experience that generations of students and alumni hold dear.
Claytor Nature Study Center
Our commitment to a sustainable lifestyle is supported by the Claytor Nature Study Center. This 470-acre outdoor classroom provides learning opportunities for the LC and local communities.
Our active student body
Our students are active – really active. 70% play varsity, intramural, or club sports. They contribute approximately 70,000 hours of community service each year. And they join more than 80 clubs and organizations, fraternities, and sororities.
