Meet almost 600 Liberty University Online students who have introduced themselves at Online Communities. Here are a few:
Hello. My name is Cordelia. I am a transfer student studying for a Master's in Executive Leadership. I am a 49 year old wife, mother and grandmother of four children and six grandchildren. I am from South Carolina and I am excited and nervous at the same time. I feel this transition to Liberty will be a good one, it is walking by faith at this point. I hope to meet new friends along this journey. "I can do all things through Christ that strengths me" (Phil 4:13).
My first name is John, though I go by my middle name, which is Clayton. I live in Gladewater, Texas and I am married to my help mate, Sue. I am in the Bachelor of Science: Religion: Biblical and Theological Studies. My goal is to become a Pastor. I just turned 49 and after being out of school since 1983, I have decided to follow the calling that Jesus has on my life. My favorite scripture is Matthew 14:29. By faith Peter took that step out of the boat, his comfort zone. Starting my journey is kind of both exciting and scary. God is in control!
My name is Brenda, a mother of 4 ages from 30 to 14. It is time for me to get my life in order for my kids to be proud of me. I decide to make a difference in my life to come back to school.

Encouragement for the Online Student
From "For the Days I Feel Inadequate", by Victoria Mininger
"We must remind ourselves that our worth and value is not a result of what we can do or accomplish, but simply comes from who God says we are and who He has uniquely created us to be." Read the blog.
