The late Dr. Jerry Falwell, founder of Liberty University, once said, “We believe that God is going to help us build the greatest Christian school in the world.” Part of that vision was having 50,000 students taking classes through LU.

Today that vision has been realized. When the spring semester got under way in January, more than 50,000 students were taking classes on LU’s campus in Lynchburg, Va., and through Liberty University Online. There are currently nearly 12,000 residential students and more than 45,000 online students – through early February a total of 57,371 students were enrolled.
