Families of high school students have an opportunity to save money and find the right fit for their future college students during Virginia Private College Week, July 23-28, 2018.
University of Lynchburg is one of 24 institutions throughout Virginia offering campus tours during the week. Any prospective student who visits at least three campuses during the week will be able to apply to any participating private college, free of any application fee. They also will be entered into a drawing for a $500 Amazon gift card.
“Virginia Private College Week gives students the chance to jump start the college search and envision how Lynchburg would be right for them,” said Rita Detwiler, vice president for enrollment management at the University of Lynchburg. “Many of our students tell us that standing at the center of our beautiful campus and looking around helped them know they had found the right place. We look forward to meeting future students and their families as they get that feeling for themselves during Virginia Private College Week.”
Lynchburg will offer campus tours at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday during Virginia Private College Week and 9 a.m. on Saturday. In addition to campus tours, prospective students and their parents will learn about University of Lynchburg admissions, financial aid, and academic programs.

“Visiting campuses in person is one of the most important steps in the college search process,” said Robert Lambeth, president of the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia. “I encourage parents to explore which college will be the best fit for their son or daughter, and I want to reassure them that a quality education at a Virginia private college is affordable and within reach.”
