International students represent 31 countries at LC including Argentina, The Bahamas, Columbia, Germany, Ghana, India, Kenya, Mexico, South Korea, St. Lucia, Sudan, Tanzania, Ukraine, and many others.
If you are an international student attending LC, we can help you with the immigration process and paperwork. We also provide an orientation so that you become comfortable on campus and in Lynchburg.
International affiliates are legal residents of the United States but hold non-U.S. or dual citizenship. Currently, these students represent countries such as Canada, Bolivia, Iran, Nigeria, Spain, Greece, Ethiopia, Vietnam, Laos, and others.

It has a fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining room, four bedrooms (three singles and one double), a full bathroom, wireless Internet service, cable television, washer and dryer, and a private parking lot.
Occupancy of this co-ed facility is five students including the IMS graduate assistant who serves as house program director.

Parade of Nations
International students are invited to participate in the Parade of Nations. The flags of their home countries are processed in and displayed during special events and formal ceremonies such as New Student Convocation and Commencement.
This program not only adds beauty to the event, but also portrays the diversity Lynchburg College students bring to campus.
