Pursue Your Passions

Hickory Campus


Discover everything our historic and dynamic campus has to offer.

Between its quaint small town feeling and being a commutable drive from major cities, Hickory is truly the best of both worlds. You'll have access to everything from internships and community service to a wealth of outdoor recreation opportunities in the foothills of Western North Carolina.

Having a tight-knit community at LR allowed me to be more intentional about my interactions with those around me. It provided me so many opportunities to get involved and give back to my community.
