This is the eighth consecutive year the school has closed enrollment early. The university said it expects to turn away nearly 1,000 students for the fall 2015 semester.

Liberty University is one of a growing number of aviation programs offering aeronautics bachelor’s degrees to respond to the industry’s increasing qualification demands for pilots, says Ernie Rogers, an associate professor at Liberty’s school of aeronautics.
When the program began four years ago, it served only pilots from the Army or regional airlines who had completed their flying requirements and needed to take only academic course work. A sample of courses includes high-speed aerodynamics, multiengine theory and aviation weather.
Liberty outfielder Ashton Perritt hit a home run in the eighth inning to give the Flames the lead and threw out the tying run at home plate to end the game. The pair of plays helped Liberty defeat the High Point Panthers, 8-7, Saturday afternoon, at Liberty Baseball Stadium to close out the 2015 regular season.
Playing in his final career home game, Perritt posted his fourth three-hit contest, collecting two doubles and his fifth home run of the year. The senior drove in two runs, including the Flames’ go-ahead run on this round tripper, and scored three times.
