Every year, LCU undergraduate students are invited to present alongside hundreds of the nation's brightest at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research. Additionally, LCU was selected as Private University of the Year by The Washington Center intern program in Washington, D.C. in 2013. LCU even offers immersive study abroad programs at an incredibly affordable price.Lubbock Christian University prepares students for life beyond the campus, whether that be the job market, mission field, or graduate school. Graduates have a 95% job placement rate in the field of education, and 99% of our accounting majors find a job right out of college. LCU students applying to Medical, Dental, or Law Schools average a 90% acceptance rate, high above the national average. LCU graduates are leading National Championship Moot court teams, studying Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, and helping produce Broadway shows. At LCU, students are ready for more than just another test.In addition to the top-tier academic standards at LCU, the on-campus community is second to none. From the team-building hilarity of Master Follies, the campus-wide variety show during homecoming weekend, to the close-knit communities of social clubs, at LCU students dont have time to be bored. Boasting more than 25 student organizations and more than 13 intramural sports, LCU's diversity is partnered with a tight-knit community. Students can keep fit at the newly-renovated 70,000-square-foot recreation facility, and also cheer on our highly-competitive athletic teams (including the 2016 NCAA Division II National Championship basketball team). LCU offers its students access to resources like professional counselors, an on-campus medical clinic, tutoring program, professional writing center, and many others. Committed to giving students every tool they need to succeed, the faculty keeps an open-door policy, in which students are free to approach their professors about anything: classroom questions, personal inquiries and issues, or just to talk about life. At LCU, our students are more than just another number; they form real relationships that last.LCU is one of the greenest campuses in the country, and a lot of effort works to ensure that it stays that way. As innovators in energy conservation, recycling, sustainability, and waste reduction, LCU voluntarily seeks LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for new campus construction projects, receiving the Platinum LEEDS Designation on one of the campus' most recently constructed buildings, the Cardwell Welcome Center.Nestled in the heart of the panhandle, Lubbock, Texas provides a unique blend of western heritage and community pride.
