Communications, Class of 2013
My Communications professors provided a wonderful balance of book learning/lectures and hands-on projects. I honed my skills through practicing what I'd been taught with creative and enriching opportunities, some of which brought me into contact with real world companies and organizations. We also had several chances to network through alumni panels, guest speakers, and the coursework that put us into contact with professionals in all sorts of industries.

This has already changed so much since I graduated. The new library is beautiful, the dining hall has recently been upgraded, and most of campus has been renovated recently or will be soon. Some of the classrooms are a little sterile looking, but many of the newer ones have been designed with more of an aesthetic appeal.

Communications, Class of 2013
I think the most unique would be the Office of Student Leadership, which recruits students to be leaders on campus in several different capacities. This is the office that manages Resident Assitants (RAs), but there are also Prayer Leaders and Spiritual Life Coaches in every residence hall on campus. This makes the school a very special place in the sense that students are surrounded by peers who care about them and will mentor them if they so wish. This network of leaders was hugely impactful to me my freshman year, and in the years that followed, I also served in each of those roles. As far as activities go, Liberty does offer a variety of plays, concerts, intramural sports, and all types of entertainment. You can ski or snowboard year round on their Snowflex facility.
