Welcome to Lenoir-Rhyne University!

LR's 100-acre campus is located in Hickory, North Carolina, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We're an hour from the mountains and about four hours from the beach.

Lenoir-Rhyne is a private, coeducational university affiliated with the N.C. Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and open to students from all religious backgrounds. We enroll about 1850 students in the liberal arts, sciences, and pre-professional programs. Our sports teams compete in Division II of the NCAA and in the South Atlantic  Conference (SAC). 

We hope that the links in the menu to the left provide any additional information you might need, but please feel free to contact us online if you have other questions.
