Academic Achievements

With more than 35 undergraduate majors, a Scholars Colloquium, and an Honors College, LCU has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a Top 20 Comprehensive College in the Western Region.

Character Counts

Whether you choose the tradition of Praise Choir or step up and lead Faith in Action, at LCU your character will form the foundation for your success. LCU is one of only six Texas schools to be named to the Templeton Honor Roll of Character Building Colleges in 1998.

Successful Outcomes

Like so many who have come before you, you'll begin your LCU success story from day one and forever be connected with our impressive network of more than 7,000 alumni. LCU graduates are in high demand. In fact, we have a 96% placement rate for graduates of our education program, and our pre-med students gain acceptance to medical school in a typical year at 85% which far exceeds the national average.

Active Lifestyle

From the team-building hilarity of Master Follies to the outrageous stress relief of TWIRP Week, at LCU you won't have time to be bored. You can choose from more than 25 student organizations and more than 13 intramural sports. Keep fit at the Field House, our newly-renovated 70,000-square-foot recreation facility. Cheer on the Chaps (including our 2009 national champion baseball team) or Lady Chaps (including our 2008 national champion softball team.) Travel the world through study abroad programs. Or take part in a student-led Spring Break campaign reaching points across the country and around the world.

Keeping it Green

LCU is one of the "greenest" campuses in the country, and as a student here, you can help ensure it stays that way. We're innovators in energy conservation, recycling, sustainability, and waste reduction, and we voluntarily seek LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for new campus construction projects.

The Lubbock Experience

When you come to LCU, you will be within 20 miles of 1,800 retail stores, 337 restaurants, 65 public parks, 34 movie theater screens, nine golf courses, and nine libraries, as well as the Preston Smith Lubbock International Airport.
