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.
Benny took his first walk along the Purpose Road in the fall of 1982. For many years, he and his wife Betty toured Appalachia to take in the beautiful autumn scenery. A young lady gave them a tour of the campus, and they were immediately taken with the mission of the school and type of students Alice Lloyd College attracts. 2017, Benny came back to ALC’s campus and had lunch with that same young lady, 35 years later.read more
Shane Caudill, a native of Knott County, Kentucky, is a sophomore Business Administration major at Alice Lloyd College. When speaking of the College community, Shane states, “I’ve lived in Pippa Passes for almost my entire life, and Alice Lloyd College has been a part of it for just as long. Many of my family work here as employees, and I know many of the faculty and staff personally. This is one of the biggest benefits of having a smaller campus; you can interact with the staff and instructors directly. You never feel like you’re just another student, and it’s one of the reasons I chose to continue my education here.”read more
