Is LIFE the Perfect Fit for You?

Choosing a university can be a daunting task that is about more than just getting a degree in order to get a job. Your university experience gives you the knowledge, confidence and experience to help you make your world better. Ultimately, you are searching for a Lasting Purpose with authentic community, and that is why Life University (LIFE) is the place you’ll want to call home when working toward your degree.

Life University is breaking boundaries in disciplines across the health and wellness spectrum by inspiring future leaders to become life-change agents. The mission of Life University is to empower you with the education, skills and values necessary for career success and life fulfillment, based on a vitalistic philosophy. At LIFE we understand that if you want to go fast, you can go alone, but if you want to go far, it takes a village.

Founded in 1974, Life University is a health sciences institution most known for its chiropractic program, the largest single campus chiropractic program in the world. Our founding principle is that of Lasting Purpose, which we define as giving, serving, loving and doing stemming from gratitude and abundance from an inner-directed life. The excellence and dedication of our faculty and staff are why students from around the world come to LIFE, where more than 45 countries are represented by our international students.

At Life University, you don’t just study to learn about the vitalistic health revolution. You live it!

Everything on campus is interconnected and linked to the overall vitalistic beliefs of the people who live, study, teach and work here. Through our commitment to a vitalistic lifestyle, students have access to: organic and sustainable campus eateries; health and life coaches; more than five miles of on-campus walking and hiking trails; and complete access to our on-campus chiropractic health clinics, Wellness Center and NeuroLIFE Institute.

Our Campus Community

Located in historic Marietta, a suburb of Atlanta, the Life University campus offers the benefits of a big city along with the benefits of a serene outdoor environment. Whether you’re looking for the energy of an engaged campus community or the ability to escape in nature on our wooded campus, LIFE has the perfect mix of both. All of our campus activities and resources are centered around a health and wellness lifestyle and are based on each student’s individual goals, investment and focus.

The LIFE community also prides itself in being a unique, close-knit family that inspires each other to explore new opportunities, challenge the system and discover untapped potential within. To that end, LIFE provides intimate class sizes with a student to faculty ratio of 16:1 so that your classes become a community where you can focus on learning and receive more one-on-one feedback. Additionally, there are more than 70 student clubs or organizations on the Life University campus, so it’s easy to find your niche within a diverse student body.

Overcoming the Hurdles

College can be a challenging transition for students making their first move into their own living space, and the mission of Housing and Residence Life is to create a safe and inclusive community where residential students feel at home. Life University requires all first-time freshmen to live in housing for one academic year, which is defined as the Fall, Winter and Spring Quarters. Housing and Residence Life provides intentional, innovative and holistic programs based on the principles of Lasting Purpose. By living in our residential area, we hope this experience will allow residents to build a stronger community among peers, find opportunities to be campus and community leaders, and accomplish their personal and professional goals while at LIFE.

Making education accessible is important to us. One million dollars in financial aid is available to undergraduate students because we believe in investing in your future. There are also many scholarships that can help you during your educational journey. Our College of Online Education is an alternate and advantageous way to receive an impactful, LIFE-altering degree. Additionally, Student Success Center houses the Academic Support, Counseling and Disability Services divisions so that each student can receive the unique resources they need to thrive.

Relentlessly Committed to Excellence

At Life University, we are not satisfied with maintaining the status quo, as we are constantly evaluating and making improvements to our pedagogy, technology and facilities to provide our students with all they need for success. Discover your Lasting Purpose at LIFE and join the not-so-little University that is changing the world!
