OUR MISSION

Related by faith to The United Methodist Church, Louisburg College is committed to offering a supportive community which nurtures young men and women intellectually, culturally, socially, physically, and spiritually. As a two-year residential institution, we provide a bridge for students to make a successful transition from high school to senior colleges and universities.


OUR VALUES

PERSONAL TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

The faculty at Louisburg is dedicated to the success of every student. Teaching and advising - not research - are our professors' primary responsibilities. Our dedicated faculty provide individual assistance, ensuring that each student is academically prepared to meet the requirements of major four-year colleges and universities. Faculty members keep generous office hours; most provide home phone numbers and e-mail addresses. You will not find graduate students teaching classes at Louisburg - only caring and concerned faculty members.


DIVERSITY

At Louisburg College we value diversity in our student body and have full non-discrimination policies in effect. How are we diverse?

  • Our students come from 42 states and 15 countries, but most come from central North Carolina.

  • Most of our students are 18-19 year olds, but we also have students who have been working for a few years and who have decided they want a college degree.

  • Our student body is ethnically diverse as well.

  • We offer a unique, research-based academic coaching program for students with learning disabilities and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.


STEP INTO THE REAL WORLD

Louisburg challenges its students to step into the "real world" from the first day of freshman year. How? We have an innovative approach called the Crossroads Program, which gets students to explore not only how they learn, but also how they live their lives. This is an invaluable asset that most colleges cannot claim.

The Crossroads Program asks first-year students: How do I live? How do I learn? Caring and dedicated Crossroads facilitators support our students as they wrestle with these questions and help them develop individual ownership of their transition to college life.

Our Crossroads Program creates a unique learning community based on four cornerstones: talking, reading, writing, and serving. We are proud of our program. Even more, we are proud of our students.
