University City Commission extends Friends of LR program
University City Commission extends Friends of LR program

Lenoir-Rhyne University's Asheville, North Carolina, and Columbia, South Carolina, campuses now have the opportunity to participate in the University City Commission's Friends of LR Discount Program.

The Friends of LR Discount Program was initiated through the University City Commission (UCC), a board aimed at broadening the relationship between LR and its hometown. The program allows businesses to express support for LR by offering a discount to their local University's campus community. Currently, over 50 businesses provide LR discounts in the Hickory community. Any business in Asheville or Columbia is invited to participate in the program by offering a discount to students, faculty, and staff at LR. Businesses are also welcome to extend their discount to LR alumni.

All Friends of LR receive a flag, pennant, and stickers to display in their business, which signifies their participation in the program while showing LR pride.

LR and the UCC thank you for your local support and the many ways you add value to the community.
