Notes: From Wikipedia:" Lenoir–Rhyne College (now University) is a private Lutheran university in Hickory, North Carolina. Founded in 1891, the university is affiliated with the North Carolina Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
"Undergraduate students are required to live on campus for their first three years. The university designates Morgan Hall, Isenhour Hall, and half of Fritz-Conrad Hall exclusively for freshman students. Upperclassmen housing includes Hickory House, Price Village, and Fourth Street apartments. In 2007, Lenoir-Rhyne built the Living Learning Center which provides upscale living and classroom space. Students who are part of the Lenoir-Rhyne Honors Academy or Greek Life may choose to live in designated on campus houses."
When the college was founded in 1891, it was called Highland Academy, but in that same year its name was changed to Lenoir College until 1928, when it became Lenoir-Rhyne College. Then in 2008, it became Lenoir-Rhyne University, as it is today (2023).
