How is Liberty U academically?

I would like to major in religion/philosophy and I am considering Liberty. I am wondering how challenging their academics are, particularly the religion department. Does anyone have any incite on this?

    Can't speak personally beyond knowing there are several very bright students from church who attend there and are well pleased. That answers not your question though.

    Liberty is not well known for academics. If you want a challenging, respected, and orthodox religion/theology degree take a hard look at Biola and Wheaton.

    Religion is quite demanding and good. The rest of the school--improving.

    As a graduate of Liberty who received my Associates in Religion, I believe the academics for this major are pretty good. The professors do make you think and question by you believe certain things....even when your belief perfectly matches that of the professor.

    Probably irrelevant, but one of my D's friends went there with something like a 2360 SAT.

    Hey thanks so much you all. I appreciate your words Nikkiil. I am definitely glad to hear that it is challenging and though provoking. That is what I want, to deepen my own understanding. Well else do you all know about Liberty? Nikkiil, what do you have to say about the environment and the students there? I have heard from people who have visited, which I will be doing soon but I would like to hear from a graduate.
