About this company
Lynchburg College is a private, independent, residential college located on 250 beautiful acres in central Virginia.
The student body numbers 2,800 undergraduate and graduate students. LC offers 39 undergraduate majors, 52 minors, 13 pre-professional programs, and 14 graduate degrees, all supported by a strong liberal arts foundation.
On-campus housing is guaranteed for four years to all undergraduates who choose this option.
But what makes us truly unique?
Two doctoral programs
In addition to our undergraduate and master's programs, we're proud to offer two doctoral programs: the doctor of physical therapy and the doctor of education in leadership studies.
Claytor Nature Study Center
Our commitment to a sustainable lifestyle is supported by the Claytor Nature Study Center. This 470-acre outdoor classroom provides learning opportunities for the LC and local communities.
Our active student body
Our students are active - really active. 70% play varsity, intramural, or club sports. They contribute over 70,000 hours of community service each year. And they join over 80 clubs, organizations, fraternities, and sororities.
LC is spectacularly located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in central Virginia. For lovers of the outdoors, there's no shortage of hikes, climbs, rivers, and streams. If you're more the city type, head to Washington, D.C. (180 miles) or Richmond, Va. (120 miles).
The LC spirit
And then there's the LC spirit. New students quickly learn that being friendly and helpful is an LC tradition. We are a truly caring community; you'll hear it called "family" again and again.
You don't have to just take our word for it, though: LC is one of only 40 schools featured in Colleges That Change Lives, a guide for students who want to choose a college that is uniquely suited to them.
