The 2009 article on Liberty University in the first post in this thread is 10 years old. I browsed the internet to see how Liberty has fared in the last 10 years. Here are tidbits from Wikipedia:
Liberty is one of the largest Christian universities in the world with a total student enrollment of 110,000 (15,000 at its Lynchburg campus and 94,000 students enrolled online.
Liberty University is a conversative Evanglical Christian college which is reflected in its honor code and other policies. The university teaches creationism alongside the science of evolutionary biology.
In 2018, Liberty University students were sixth in terms of receiving federal aid for the year 2017. Most of Liberty University's revenue came from taxpayer-funded sources.
Liberty's faith-based Christian honor code states that sexual relations outside of a biblically ordained marriage between a natural-born man and a natural-born woman are not permissible. Campus Pride, an organization that advocates for LGBT rights on college campuses, listed Liberty University as one of the worst universities for LGBT students.
Liberty University has been described as a "stage of choice in Republican presidential politics", and a "pilgrimage site for GOP candidates." According to the Washington Post, Republican candidates are drawn to the university because it is seen as a "bastion of the Christian right".
In 2009, Liberty stopped recognizing the university's Democratic Party student group; school officials said this was because the Democratic Party platform goes against the school's conservative Christian principles.
In a December 5, 2015, convocation speech, President Jerry Falwell Jr. encouraged the student body to obtain concealed handgun permits. Falwell discussed the 2015 San Bernardino attack and said, "If more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in.
Some Liberty students protested when President Trump criticized both white supremacists and counter-protesters after the August 2017 Charlottesville neo-Nazi group violence. Following Trump's remarks, Falwell said that he was "so proud" of Trump for his "bold truthful" statement on the tragedy.
President Falwell has consistently blocked students' free speech as he has censored articles in the school's newspaper.
So taxpayers. You are helping fund Liberty University's curriculum and conservative politics.
