Lynchburg College


The University of Lynchburg is a nationally recognized private university where students gain a greater heart for humanity and a mindset of individual growth. Here, thought-provoking learning ignites change in each individual and the world.

U.S. News & World Report, the Princeton Review, and Colleges of Distinction recognize us as one of the best institutions of higher education in the nation. Meanwhile, we’re one of a select few “Colleges that Change Lives.”

We were founded in 1903 when a handful of professors instructed fewer than 60 students in the halls of a former resort hotel. There were eight people in the first graduating class.

Since then, we’ve grown as a community and as a university. We have nearly 3,100 students and more than 20,000 alumni around the world. We evolved from a small liberal arts college to a comprehensive university. At every turn, we ask ourselves how can we best serve our students?

In turn, we ask our students: how can you best serve the world?
