Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

I think college is a very enlightening experience, and very useful if pursuing a degree that guarantees employment. With that being said, I do not think college is the best option for everyone. I think there are choices that are as meaningful and useful as a college education that can be found in trade schools and community colleges around the country and world.

Make sure that you have a clear goal in mind before beginning a degree program. Simply getting a degree to get a degree is a quick route to unnecessary and irresponsible debt.

Top-notch curriculum taught by outstanding faculty members. Students are challenged in understanding the material, but are always supported by instructors.

Liberty University Online allowed me to manage home and school. I not only obtained my MBA through Liberty, I also received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Finance.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Liberty University is a good option for anybody working while going to school. I'm sure other programs of theirs are fine but I am deeply unsatisfied with the School Counseling program, which is now in the college of behavioral sciences instead of the college of education. You are required to complete 4 intensives (on-campus classes) even if you already took those classes at a different university. Liberty will not honor them, even if they have identical rubrics and course numbers. The intensives are very expensive, you have to pay for flights, hotels, food, etc. and NONE of the intensive professors let you know when their course will finish. The intensives are supposed to go Monday - Friday from 8am or 8:30am to 5pm or 5:30pm. I've had some professors not even make us go on Friday and I could have returned home a day earlier and not paid for another night in my hotel. I've had other professors who threatened to fail me because I could only get a flight out of Lynchburg or Roanoke that leaves at 3pm on Friday. The whole intensive system is a mess and there is no kindness, compassion, or leniency. I've also had issues with my required practicum (150hrs) and internship (600hrs). The school counseling office was of no help to me in getting my practicum site. The school is not supposed to help you find placement for practicum, but I think they should reevaluate that and help their students get placement. I've spoken to numerous students who've agreed. It's different with internship, the school counseling office is supposed to find you placement for your two semesters of interning. They did no such thing. My degree has to be delayed another year now because of Liberty doing a terrible job in finding me placement. I even took a prerequisite for internship, because Liberty would not grant me special permission to take it after or during my internship, two days after my wedding. I had to rearrange my entire honeymoon in order to take this class so I could intern this fall. Guess what. I'm not interning in the fall! Since March, Liberty has been trying to find me an internship but has been vastly unsuccessful. It is now one day before I need to pay for the class and I have no prospects. I was the one who had to try and find my internship myself after I realized Liberty does absolutely nothing to help. I told Liberty to communicate with a woman from the district, who I found on my own time, and they did not until last minute, so I missed out on that opportunity. Like I said at the beginning of the review, Liberty is probably a great option for students in programs that do not have to complete: Internships, practicums, or intensives; But for me, being a student at Liberty has been a living Hell every step of the way! They pride themselves on being a Christian university but it's funny because nowhere at this school did I experience any compassion, love, or understanding.
