LCU Listed as a Highest Return on Investment CollegeAug. 26, 2013
Lubbock Christian University was recently listed and recognized as a Highest Return on Investment (ROI) College in Texas by Affordable Colleges (AC) Online, today’s number one resource for college affordability and financial aid information. AC Online identified 49 colleges in Texas where degrees pay off the most over a lifetime based off criteria including tuition and graduate’s average starting salaries.
"We appreciate the national recognition of the financial value of an LCU education and believe that our strong academics offered at a competitive price afford our graduates substantial economic value,” says Dr. Brian Starr. “But our greater belief and hope is that the true value of an LCU education transcends economics and that students graduate from here having experienced personal, social and spiritual growth that far outweighs the rewards of the income stream they enjoy."
To add value beyond economics, LCU focuses on learning, character and citizenship, as indicated on the university seal. Smaller class sizes allow for more personal learning experiences, and an annual scholar’s colloquium gives students the opportunity to present their research on a higher level. Student character and citizenship are built through opportunities across campus to serve in the community and over-seas. LCU students participate in a campus wide service day where they serve the Lubbock community in various ways. Students also have the opportunity to take international and domestic mission-trips during spring-break and the summer. Professional and social clubs across campus give students opportunities to learn and grow personally, socially, spiritually, and academically.
Instilling the values of learning, character and citizenship into the students perhaps contributes to the success of LCU graduates, allowing them to excel in their vocation and ultimately pay off their education.
“We offer both a strong return on investment in pure economic terms and more importantly we offer a transformative educational experience, the kind of return on investment that has eternal implication,” says President Perrin, remarking on this recognition.
