Lubbock Christian University
The Life Changing University
At Lubbock Christian University, students learn to think critically in a distinctly Christian community where professors know their name and they’re embraced like family. The minute you walk onto the campus at LCU, the welcoming atmosphere distinguishes the school as more than a place to earn a degree. While LCU offers over sixty undergraduate and fifteen master’s degree programs, the university is also committed to developing the whole person.
Recognized as a character-building school, it is LCU’s mission to prepare its more than two thousand students for success in all aspects of their lives from spiritual formation and intellectual growth to personal stewardship and leadership development. Here students worship together daily with faculty and staff in chapel. Students also have opportunities to serve the local community or in various missions worldwide.
The university’s “An Evening With…” benefit series has brought in nationally known speakers such as General Collin Powell, President George W. Bush, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and Journalist Tom Brokaw, with students being a key part of the evening.
LCU’s focus on academia is evident with eighty-five percent of pre-med and pre-dental majors being accepted into their respective professional schools, far exceeding the national average. The partnership with Covenant Health System School of Nursing provides a plan for students to complete their license to work as an RN and also includes a program where students can complete their BSN degree at LCU. Financial aid is awarded to approximately 90 percent of students who attend LCU.
Though classes are small, LCU is big enough to offer students a wide range of enriching experiences beyond the classroom through participation in organizations, domestic and international travel, musical ensembles, theater productions, intramural sports and nationally ranked athletic teams, which were recently approved to move to Division II of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Opportunities abound for students to work alongside professors in significant undergraduate research, and an honors program offers exceptional learning experiences that include small seminar classes, research assistantships, cultural enrichment opportunities, semester internships, and study-abroad programs.
