Liberty University is the largest private nonprofit university in the nation, the largest university in Virginia, and the largest Christian university in the world. Liberty was founded in 1971 by my father, the late Dr. Jerry Falwell, Sr., with a vision to train Champions for Christ as a world class university. An accredited institution, Liberty now offers 315 unique programs of study. Liberty’s 6,819-acre campus boasts millions of square feet of technologically advanced academic, residential and recreational space, the vast majority of which was constructed in the last 15 years. Liberty hosts some of the world’s best-known speakers from all walks of life every semester, and our vibrant spiritual life programs are based on a solid doctrinal statement that truly sets us apart from other schools. Our code of conduct teaches discipline and promotes a lifestyle of Biblical morality but is well-balanced to allow students the freedom to enjoy their college experience. While academics and faith are our top priorities, Liberty also fields 20 NCAA Division I athletic teams, 31 club sport teams and provides a host of student activities, intramural sports and recreational opportunities. Everything we do is designed to develop Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge and skills essential to impact tomorrow’s world.
Liberty University’s greatest asset is its students — and their school spirit, enthusiasm, strong character and motivation. Behind these successful students are parents who are valued for their supportive role. Whether you’re a prospective student or parent, you might be curious about Liberty — and you’re looking in the right spot. Our website is designed to answer your questions, but the best way to find out if Liberty is a perfect fit for you is to schedule a visit.
