The music department is superb, few like it. The campus is small which makes the community feel close and comfortable. The dining options are diverse. There are plenty of different dietary choices for those who need them. The college promotes inclusivity as well which goes a long way to make everyone feel safe and at home. Overall, Lebanon Valley College is a great school with lots of opportunity.

It's a great school

Kade

Lebanon Valley College was a beautiful school. While walking through the campus, trees and the scenery made the experience. All of the buildings were well maintained and were aesthetically pleasing. The food was above average. Since Lebanon Valley College is a small school, it does not have big restaurants. The atmosphere was kind and friendly. Everyone seemed to be having conversations and enjoying their time. Lebanon Valley College was an outstanding college due to its scenery, atmosphere, and overall size of the campus.

Please save yourself and your money. This school USED to be good, now between the constant price hikes for no reason and the entry level courses flunking people out of college completely no one can catch a break. Entry level Bio and Chem is ran like the Hunger Games where if you aren't studying 24/7 or hardcore cheating there is no way you will pass with more than a C. If you want to go to Med school, PA school etc they will not guide you all that well and forget any help at all if you are below a certain GPA, which their own departments probably killed anyway. There is one or two teachers from every department in N-G that are honestly pretty fair however most of them have way to high expectations without giving the proper information or time needed to produce grad level results. When you try to go up and ask why you were given 3/8 on a long answer response question most of them will say " Well you're right, but you did not say what I wanted you to write down" . The students here are abysmal as well, anything to get the upper hand because, as I stated, it's like The Hunger Games at this school. Also they advertised this place was a diverse campus yet they use the same 4 POC on every brochure and picture BECAUSE THATS ALL THAT IS HERE PLEASE JUST GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. P.S The Valley Ambassadors go on these sites sometimes and write fake reviews so beware of overly gleaming ones.

    Students who prefer a city environment. Annville is a small, quiet town. The classes are small, the campus is small enough to walk across in ten minutes, max.

  14. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    As cliche as it may sound, Lebanon Valley College is like a family. The students create bonds with others and connect in many ways. LVC is big with music, sports, and clubs, and just like other schools, there are the jocks, the musicians, the smarty-pants, and the preps, but with our close-knit campus, everyone seems to act like one big family who accepts one another. :)

  15. What are the academics like at your school?

    LVC is an awesome college academically. Every class that I've been in has averaged about twenty students, and all of my professors know my name. It's nice to go to class and be engaged in the lesson rather than sitting in a lecture hall trying to pay attention. As a music recording major, I spend time with my piano professor outside of my general classes, which is a nice way to get to know teachers better than just in the classroom. I've also found that I'm learning knowledge that will be practical/useful in the real world when it's time to job search.

  16. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    I love LVC! The best part by far is how I can walk anywhere on campus and know that I will recognize almost every face I see. When I tell people I go to Lebanon Valley, it is usually held in high regard because LVC is known for academics. My favorite place to hang out while at school is in the quad playing frisbee or catch with friends.

  17. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    As a music recording major, I'm in the Audio Engineering Society which has definitely given me alot of hands on activities in the studios. Athletic events, especially volleyball and basketball are really popular for students to attend. My favorite tradition about LVC is the football game against Albright. If Lebanon Valley wins, all the students march to Kreiderheim (the presidents house) to petition for no class the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
