Rising high school juniors and seniors who are Virginia residents, as well as prospective transfer students, are invited to visit the university and see all that Liberty has to offer.

Event tours will take place daily at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. and will begin at the Hancock Welcome Center.

“We are excited to welcome families to our beautiful and growing campus again this year,” said Ed Parker, assistant director of Recruitment, Visitors Center. “Visiting campus provides a firsthand experience that really gives life to the college selection process. People who come out to Liberty are able to see what a unique and beautiful place it is. For those who have already decided on Liberty, a visit helps them get acclimated to the campus and for those who are still choosing, they have an opportunity to discover what makes Liberty special.”

Coinciding with Virginia Private College Week is the university’s regularly scheduled My Liberty Monday on July 28 and Friendly Friday on Aug. 1. Each of these events is designed to give potential students and their families key information about life at Liberty through tours of its growing campus, including academic, recreational, and athletic facilities. Guests will also hear from faculty as well as admissions and financial aid personnel.
