Alice Lloyd College

Academics

Providing Leadership for Appalachia

Full ImageChoosing a college is one of the most significant decisions you will ever make. The choices you make today will profoundly affect the decisions you make tomorrow. The things you learn, the way you live and how you lead will also be affected by your decision. That’s a lot of pressure! That’s why Alice Lloyd wants to help you do what is right for your needs … for the rest of your life!

Alice Lloyd College is a small, private, liberal arts college that stresses academic excellence. ALC equips students with a general knowledge of the arts and sciences and, more importantly, a working knowledge of how to make a lasting impact on their community. Alice Lloyd College is unique. The number of graduates who find their place in medicine, business, and law far surpasses those who graduate from most schools of a similar size. Even more impressively, 83% of our graduates who apply to graduate or professional school are accepted. The faculty and staff at Alice Lloyd work hard to create an atmosphere that allows students to look within themselves and find that “special something” that will make a difference. Faculty members have included graduates of highly regarded institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Brigham Young, Penn State, Wake Forest, Ohio State University, the University of Virginia, and the University of North Carolina.

Today, the possibilities for self-fulfillment are limitless. There is no way to predict what wonderful things might happen with each new sunrise. Getting started on your future is both intimidating and exhilarating, but discovering ways in which to broaden and brighten tomorrow is why we are here today.

At Alice Lloyd you never know what a day might bring! You could discover new ways to analyze T-Cells in Microbiology or perhaps spend the day teaching Appalachian middle school children how to conjugate verbs. You could then go meet people like the president of Wal-Mart International, after he speaks in the Estelle Campbell Center for the Arts on the ALC campus. You might want to relax in the indoor pool, or make a new friend at the Student Center, or spend your time with old friends hiking on one of the many wooded trails at ALC. You can learn new job skills in the Alice Lloyd Student Work Program or assist a professor in creating new teaching methods for the future.

Students on Campus
Alice Lloyd’s goal is to “prepare leaders for Appalachia.” ALC has been built around words like work ethic, commitment, responsibility, maturity, pride, challenge, service and dedication. Alice Lloyd College expects more from its students because ALC gives more to its students.

The success rate of ALC graduates is outstanding. An average of more than 96% of our graduates are either employed or attending graduate school just six months after graduation. You’ll find Alice Lloyd graduates serving as business leaders, teachers, doctors, lawyers, ministers, and in many other professions throughout Appalachia.

The most important step in your college journey is figuring out what you are meant to do with your life. Who do you want to be? How will you make a difference? Do you remember when you used to say, “When I grow up, I want to be a …?” We’ve all finished that sentence a thousand different ways. Our goals and dreams can change as quickly as the blink of an eye. But now it is time to make the decision that will shape the rest of your life. It’s about time you figured out what is right for you.
