Alice Lloyd College is the only college in America that actively recruits students exclusively from the Appalachian region. From its inception, our institution has pledged to guarantee the cost of tuition for qualified mountain students originating from our service area. Due to this unique and ambitious mission, we continue to depend upon the loyalty and generosity of the College’s “friends” — alumni, foundations & corporations, longtime donors, philanthropists, current students and their families, churches, organizations, and countless others — to help us make our dreams and goals a reality. All around our campus, from brick plazas and plaques to the names of buildings, we recognize and remember the people who have contributed to the ongoing miracle that began here so long ago.

I was given an opportunity, and I want to give that to others if I can,” he says. He became invested in the College when he saw we were able to give an opportunity to those students who may not otherwise receive a college education by offering a tuition guarantee.read more
