What Our Alumni Say:

Aleah Schrock

"The most important thing about Liberty is the people. The people I’ve met have probably been the most impactful in shaping me into the person I am. I obviously enjoyed my classes and the opportunities I’ve had to study abroad. (Liberty) challenged, encouraged, and developed me more fully as a person."

Stephanie Wright
"It was a lot of fun to work with the new public history initiatives launched by Liberty’s history department. It’s a great opportunity for students to get hands-on experience because historical archeology is something that you have to do. It’s hard to learn it just by being in a classroom, so the investment by Liberty has been great for students."
Grace H.

"The small tight-knit community that [the History Department] has, I think, is what made it a great experience for me. You get to know all your professors. They really guide you in not only what you are doing in your school work, but they guide you professionally."
