Health and Body

Louisburg College cares for the health of its students by providing educational programs and referral services. The town of Louisburg has several doctors, dentists, optometrists, and drug stores, as well as the Franklin County Health Department. Franklin Regional Medical Center is just down the street from the College. Intramural sports are also a great way to stay physically active.

Spirit and Soul

The college provides opportunities for spiritual growth through voluntary chapel services and through organizations such as the Christian Life Council. Chapel services are held on Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m. Louisburg College is related by faith to the United Methodist Church and welcomes students of all religions, races, and ethnic groups. The College's Christian Life Council is open to anyone who desires the opportunity for Christian fellowship and service.

The college also has a full-time Chaplain on staff. Although he is Methodist by denomination, as befits our historical legacy, he is ecumenical in his ministry and welcomes students of all faiths and backgrounds. The Chaplain is a great resource for students to explore and challenge their spirituality.

Christian Life Council (CLC) is an interdenominational group of students who want to enrich their lives and others through Christian fellowship. Several service projects throughout the year keep this group active.
