"Liberty hosts some of the world's best-known Christian speakers from all walks of life every semester and our vibrant spiritual life programs are based on a solid doctrinal statement that truly sets us apart from other schools," said Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. "Our code of conduct teaches discipline and promotes a lifestyle of Biblical morality but is well-balanced to allow students the freedom to enjoy their college experience."

Most importantly, Liberty University's greatest asset is its students — and their school spirit, enthusiasm, strong character and motivation. For more information on Liberty University, or to schedule a visit, visit
