Being an Engaged Online Student

Here are some ideas on being an engaged online student at Liberty University.

Convocation and Other Events

Watch the Liberty University Convocation services live on M/W/F at 10:00 a.m. (EST).  This is also streamed at 11:00 p.m. (EST).  We stream recorded Convocation services throughout the week.  http://www.liberty.edu/live.

Benefits:

  • Be updated on the events of YOUR university.
  • Pray for the things that are on the hearts of the campus leadership.
  • Get excited about what God is doing at Liberty University.

Note: you can also watch these events on your mobile device.

__________

Live Chat

  • At Online Communities, join in the live chat conversation and tell us how you are being blessed by the worship team, challenged by the speaker, or just have a comment.

__________

Prayer Requests

  • Ask the Campus Pastors to pray for you.

__________

Social Media

  • Use social media to invite your friends, family and classmates to watch an event with you.  See http://www.liberty.edu/live.
  • Follow the Online Communities office on Twitter.  (@LibertyUConnect).  We'll keep you updated on upcoming events.
  • Email the Online Communities office and tell us how you are being blessed throughout the week.  Our email address is onlinecommunity@liberty.edu.

__________

Academics

  • Stay in contact with your professor as this is critical for academic success.  Read through your notes and ask questions.
  • Participate in the class lectures, projects and discussion boards.  I'm suggesting you go above what is required and jump in with both feet.
  • Pray for your teacher and classmates.  Keep a notebook near where you study and write in this everyday as you are asked to pray.
  • Enroll in more classes.  Part-time students are generally less engaged than full-time students.
  • Stay in touch with your Academic Advisor.  He or she will have updated information for you as you pursue your degree.

Come for a Visit

There are many opportunities to visit the campus.  Here are just a few:

Call the Visitor's Center at 434-582-2064 if you have questions about events, accommodations, tours, etc.

 

God bless.
