My reason for coming to Lenoir-Rhyne was the chance to continue my lacrosse career at the next level. What got me to stay at LR was the family like atmosphere and the endless opportunities for me to grow as an individual, while developing lifelong friendships.
There was some indescribable impulse drawing me to the school. In retrospect, I can say that the decision was an incredibly good one. LR was the perfect fit: a reasonable distance from home, a well-established biology program, and a small, intimate campus atmosphere. In other words, a second home.
I am the first person in my family that will be graduating college. I'm here because I want to prove to my siblings, family, and friends that just because you come from a modest background doesn't mean that you cannot accomplish your dreams.
"LR has given me so many opportunities and has always made me feel like part of the family. I am lucky to have the opportunity to learn and grow at the University I get to call home."
“The admissions staff at LRU has done a great job of providing financial aid and scholarship opportunities and helping to make my education affordable.”

“I was in 9th grade when I first visited Lenoir-Rhyne. I remember getting off the bus and seeing all the flowers in full bloom. I said to a classmate, ‘This is where I am going to go to school’. It felt like home and I just knew.”
