At Lenoir-Rhyne we seek to develop the whole person. We believe that wholeness is the result of involvement in a wide variety of intellectual, social, spiritual and physical experiences. Whether you’re interested in intramurals, greek life or service learning, there is something here for you.

      It's not unusual to see students catching a quick power nap between classes - the couches around campus are that comfy. If you're lucky, an upperclassman will share his or her knowledge of the best napping couches with you. Sweet dreams of making the Dean's List await!

    • The suite life.

      It's not exactly a yearlong slumber party, but there are lots of advantages to having your friends right down the hall - or sharing your room. It's easy to find a study buddy, someone who loves your favorite tv show, a helping hand, or a partner in (noncriminal) crime for an adventure.

  • A CAMPUS OF ACADEMICS

      Seriously smart faculty. Classes that make you think -- hard -- and open your eyes and mind.

      It's that simple. And that tough. Think you're up for it?
