USA Today published an article Sept. 14, explaining Liberty University's unprecedented growth and financial strength — what it calls "Jerry Falwell's legacy."
"Most private non-profit colleges have remained cautious with their budgets amid lingering economic uncertainty, but Liberty University is in the midst of a $400 million, four-year spending spree," the article states. "Its endowment this year topped $1 billion. And its business strategy, including competitive tuition and attention to customer service, is earning praise from financial analysts. Moody's this month upgraded Liberty to one of its highest credit ratings."
One of the reasons for Liberty's growth and fiscal stability is its "robust online program."
