At Lenoir-Rhyne University, you'll receive an education like no other. We offer exceptional academic programs to meet the evolving needs of our students.

Our classes sizes are small, with a student-to-faculty ratio of 13:1. That way you get the support you need from faculty members who are passionate about the subjects they teach.

We also recognize that learning goes beyond the classroom. That's why we offer opportunities for students to participate in research and scholarship, internships, community service, student organizations and study abroad.
