Lynchburg College has so many different opportunities to become involved on campus. Through student judicial board, greek life, bonner leader program and so much more. I myself am currently involved in Greek life and am a resident assistant. Honestly, in order to feel like you are actually a part of lynchburg college and to make friends you need to become involved in something. It seems that most of the time the people who transfer say its because they didn't get involved. I personally love the nursing department. I really feel as though they are preparing me for my future career. In fact at one of my clinical experiences I was told "We really enjoy having Lynchburg College student nurses here they just seem to know so much more than the student nurses from other nearby colleges and it's nice to not have to explain everything to them." The sports at Lynchburg are okay the main ones are soccer, lacrosse and basketball and I know that the students who join the sports teams really seem to enjoy them. However, the majority of the student body typically does not attend sporting events and school spirit is sometimes lacking. All in all though Lynchburg College is a really amazing school that has given me so many different opportunities. I am glad that I chose to go there.
