For Parents & Family

We encourage you to attend SOAR, as there is programming especially for parents and guests.

You will meet college officials, learn about campus services, and understand more about the Lynchburg College community. Connection Leaders can share with you how best to help your student be successful at LC.

Unfortunately, parents cannot stay on campus.
