Life on Campus

What is there to do at LR? Between the Visiting Writers Series bringing authors like Nicholas Sparks to campus, or the Nationally Ranked athletics program playing on the weekends, there's almost too much going on! To see what else is happening, click here.


Powerful Education

LR believes that there is more to a classroom than the number of people that you can fit into it. By maintaining focused class sizes, professors know each student’s potential and can push them to it!

You don’t have to settle for sitting in a lecture hall of two or three hundred, we’re different here. Take a look.
