“Liberty University Online is very generous with the credits for life experience and also generous economically for military and police, so it is just the best combination. The flexibility is really important, especially being a police officer, with my schedule, it’s extremely erratic. So being able to study online is very convenient for me. I am about to graduate with my bachelor’s in interdisciplinary studies, and I’ve had such a positive experience here at Liberty, and I’m going to continue on with my master’s in divinity.”
“Anyone who may be doubting being able to go back to school or doing online and having time, I would say that LU Online is the best way to go. I’m 31. You can get it done. I changed jobs in the middle of it. It’s possible, especially when you do have to work. So many of us today, we don’t have the means to not work and go to school. I feel LU Online allows time and the flexibility to do what you need to do in life and at work while getting your degree.”
“My name is Janae Fleming. I am obtaining a bachelor’s in science and education and my hometown is Tucson, Arizona. Liberty Online works for me flexibility-wise with my family in the perfect way that I was able to still work and still raise 4 little girls and go to school all at the same time. You have to have a lot of self-motivation and self-discipline when you’re going to school online, but the amazing thing is at Liberty, you don’t really have to do it by yourself.
“You really do have resources like someone who’s going to school on campus. When you’re going through these courses, you’re not only learning how to be a better educator or be a better teacher, at least for me, who’s in education, but you really are able to kind of self-develop as you’re going through your degree so you come out on the other end, graduating, not just as somebody who knows how to be a teacher now but as somebody who’s just a really well-rounded individual. I would not have been able to be successful anywhere but Liberty University Online.”
“I’m Cheryl Brehm, Mrs. Tennessee. Liberty has done an amazing job of preparing me for what I do now as Mrs. Tennessee and what I’ll continue to do. Having been in the classroom, then an online student, then an online teacher, I really do believe in this type of education. It was so flexible.
“I mean, I could finish my coursework whenever I needed to, and I had a job at the time, so for me, I would get up, go to work, and then come home, get in my PJs, throw a dinner on the table, and then finish up at night, and I am so grateful for that. Being able to give into my marriage, give into my church, give into my job, and then be able to come home and finish up the degree, I couldn’t ask for a better opportunity. I had a great experience with my online professors. Getting answers back within hours, sometimes within minutes. I have seen Liberty from every angle possible, and I have nothing but great things to say because they really do care about you.”
“I work 8 to 6 Monday through Friday so being a single mom and trying to like fit, you know, going to actual campus, it just isn’t feasible. It just wouldn’t work. So I figured with the online program after she’s in bed, I can take 2 to 3 hours, and I can read the material and I can do the online coursework and this is the only way I’m going to go back to college.
“Teachers were always available to the class, and then all of my classmates were extremely nice. If you had questions, there’s always that group forum where you can post and people always responded. And being online, you kind of think, ‘Am I going to connect with people? You know, I’m just a person on a computer screen.’ But you don’t feel that way. One of my friends wanted to go to Liberty, and they were on the fence about it, and I told them to just do it. Just go ahead and do it. It’s great. I’ve enjoyed my experience, and it’s so much fun.”
“I have had so many who’ve helped along the way. So many in faculty, too many to mention. But I do remember one particular professor when I got discouraged, and she basically got back with me and said, ‘If God has called you to it, he’ll see you through it.’ No judgment, no pressure, and she sent me Bible verses, and I knew that she was praying for me, as all of the instructors, all of the faculty prayed for one another and for us.” — Barbara Conner
“I’m Marty Misjuns. I’m a Master Firefighter with the Lynchburg Fire Department. I’m currently enrolled in the Master of Arts in Executive Leadership program. Liberty Online has been really flexible with my schedule, having a family and having a full-time a career with the Lynchburg Fire Department. Liberty Online worked great with me to be able to transition from completing a bachelor’s and turning right back around and getting into a master’s program, which is something that I never thought that I would even consider.”
“So, even though I did online classes, I felt like the staff and faculty online were very responsive, communicative, and just all around I had a great experience with the online program at Liberty.” — Tricia Worden
“It was unbelievable the way I was able to connect with them without physically interacting with them. Anytime I sent an email, or I would even get phone calls to “How am I doing?” I mean they were so supportive. In my comments and reviews, I made it known to just encourage them to continue to not just feel the need to be standard and to be strict, it’s a professor, but allow their light to shine as children of God and as Christians because I saw that over everything else, and I was really impressed with that.” — Paula McDermott-Mills
“It is very easy to communicate with professors. I sent them emails, and I spoke to–especially Dean Miller I spoke to several times on the phone.” — Ed Kisselback
“The interaction with the staff was fantastic, and the other students were just out of this world. As a matter of fact, it was across the world. All of my university professors were very, very nice, very easy to get along with. I established a great rapport with several of them, and I plan on contacting them even after I’ve graduated from Liberty University. They were patient. They were very helpful with any questions that I had, and it has developed the relationship I had with them and the other students.” — Tim Goode
“I’d like to mention my Academic Advisor. He’s amazing. His name is Eddie Marquez. And he doesn’t know that I’m saying this, but he has held my hand the whole time. He has called me consistently, encouraged me, laughed with me on the phone, almost cried with me at one point, and helped me to plan what I needed to do next to make this happen.” — Barbara Conner
“I had an academic advisor who worked very, very well with me and really, really hard for me. He would get back to me immediately and sometimes call me back before I had time to call him. There was a medical situation that happened after I gave birth to one of my daughters. I got really, really sick and it was right in the middle of a semester. He worked so hard with me to make sure that I could finish my semester. We probably talked 2 or 3 times a week for about 4 to 5 weeks just to ensure that I had all the support I needed and could utilize every resource to make sure I could get through that semester. He was diligent and amazing and I ended up writing this really long email to his supervisor about how much I loved him.” — Janae Fleming
“My interaction with the staff has been tremendous. Their support, their questions, their interest in trying to make sure both for me in terms of my education as well as for my family and how my life is going on have been extremely beneficial and taken a lot of the stress away from when you’re trying to do school, work, family all at the same time. Their support, their prayers have just been a complete blessing to me.” — Timothy McIntosh
“I’ve been to about 5 different universities before Liberty and 2 of my children are in college right now. The most surprising thing about Liberty is how helpful they are. The other colleges you just kind of sign up, and you’re on your own. Liberty, you get a call from the staff probably it seems like once a week to make sure everything is okay and if you have any questions.” — Ed Kisselback
“Able to communicate with them very easily. It was up to me to reach out to them, and when I did, they responded and were able to give me correct answers or show me the support that I needed.” — Karen Raboin
