About

History

In 1971, the Rev. Jerry Falwell dreamed about world change. He envisioned a generation of professionals in every field who loved God, served others, and were the best at whatever they were called to be. He saw a university on a mountain where this training could happen—and he started to build it.

Liberty Pros and Cons
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

The professors are easily accessible via email. However the process to speak with an academic advisor is long and tiresome. If you aren't a religious person, I highly recommend staying away from Liberty. I am not a religious person and although I knew Liberty was a religious institution, I did not expect to include a biblical interpretation in every assignment I do.
