Future college students and their families can get a glimpse of Lynchburg College and other schools throughout the state during Virginia Private College Week from July 24 to 29, 2017.
The annual event is designed to encourage high school-age students to tour several campuses to learn about the benefits of attending a private college in Virginia. Those who visit at least three participating institutions in one week will receive application fee waivers to use when applying to three private colleges.
Lynchburg College will offer campus tours at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and a 9 a.m. tour on Saturday, July 29. Each tour will be followed by an information session about admissions, financial aid, and academic programs. Register for a tour session here.
Visiting Lynchburg College allows students to get a feel for the campus and envision what attending Lynchburg would be like. Here are a few things to think about during the drive to campus:
- Lynchburg College is one of only two colleges in Virginia (and only 40 total) featured in Colleges that Change Lives, thanks to its student-centered culture and opportunities for engaged learning, leadership, service, and athletic competition. The Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report continually rank Lynchburg among the best colleges and regional universities in the south.
- Lynchburg students learn firsthand from dedicated mentors. With one faculty member for every 10 students, students get personalized attention from professors.
- In addition to leading teams to victory (and more than 50 conference championships in the past 10 years), Lynchburg coaches value academic progress and character of their student-athletes.
- In 2018, Lynchburg College will change its name to the University of Lynchburg, reflecting the breadth and strength of its academic program (40 majors, 57 minors, 18 master’s degree programs, and three doctorates), the excellence of its faculty, and the growth of its student body. The faculty and staff are committed to making the University of Lynchburg a student-centered university that builds on the traditions and values that have made it strong for more than 100 years.
