College For A Weekend (CFAW)

Live Like a College Student at Liberty University

Choosing a college is a big decision — one that you won’t make without doing your research, talking to people you trust, and visiting the campuses you’re considering. Many schools fit their university experience into a short presentation, tour, and Q-and-A. 

While short-and-sweet campus tours are convenient, do you really want to commit the next four years of your life after just a four-hour visit (or less)?

At Liberty University’s College For A Weekend, you can spend four days test-driving life as an LU student, exploring our more than 7,000-acre campus, and getting all your college questions answered.

You’re anything but a typical student, so CFAW is anything but a typical college tour. Design your perfect college visit at Liberty University. Endless possibilities — all in one place.

What will you do?

  • Attend college classes with professors who have spent years influencing their fields
  • Stay overnight in a college dorm with current Liberty students
  • Eat in our award-winning dining hall with over 20 available food stations
  • Enjoy our on-campus activities, including a concert by a top Christian artist, an NCAA athletic event, and so much more!

What else can you do while on Liberty's campus?

Ski, snowboard, or tube — no matter what season it is — at Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre, our year-round ski slope.

Take a trail ride on horseback at our Equestrian Center.

Try out our more than 20 unique dining options — including pho from Star Ginger, falafel from Garbanzo, burgers from Hey Cow, and comfort food from our own food truck — across campus.
