In 2018, Lynchburg College became the University of Lynchburg. But we’re doing much more than changing our name. We’re making enhancements in the classroom, athletics, and student life programs. Meanwhile, we’re growing our campus to serve future generations of Lynchburg students. We strive to be a national leader in student engagement, leadership, and athletics. This isn’t about a destination. It’s a journey.
We begin our 115th academic year with exciting developments around campus.
- The faculty has approved a new general education program to focus on student engagement and the liberal arts.
- In the summer of 2018, Lynchburg will start building a new residence hall to replace McWane Hall. In addition to housing nearly 200 students, the new facility will be home base to the Westover Honors College.
- A new Steinway Model D Concert Grand Piano will create enriching opportunities for music students.
- The new Doctor of Medical Science program has attracted PAs from around the world to continue their studies.
And What’s Ahead?
In the 2017-2018 academic year, we’re celebrating our history as University of Lynchburg and preparing for our future as the University of Lynchburg.
The next edition of University of Lynchburg magazine celebrates the heritage and history of University of Lynchburg. More than just a timeline of events, the magazine explores the turning points of our history — including topics as vital as racial integration or as lighthearted as the decision to place red chairs around the Dell.
If you do not currently receive the magazine and would like a copy of this issue, please email the Alumni Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re also collecting photos and memories to help celebrate the history of University of Lynchburg at Homecoming 2017 and other future events. Share your stories and photos to help us celebrate.
