    Lynn Universities campus is nice, and the professors are great. Of course, the financial aid department is horrible and the student body is tiny on campus which leads you to seeing the same exact people all day every day. The dorms are very poor for what you expect, my dorm in Freiburger had mold growing by the A/C, and every dorm has a dehumidifier because of multiple mold issues. The class sizes are small, and you do connect with the professors and your classmates, but it made it feel like high school all over again. The IPAD PROS (the faculty and staff will never let you forget they gave you one) are cool but can be annoying, and I wished textbooks were used more. The aviation program is small, but I found it lacked for what I was looking for, the three Cessna 172's are a bit outdated in the cockpit and sometimes knobs or buttons don't work, not something you want happening when you're paying $60k+ a year to go here. The food is average, and a meal plan cost is pretty expensive for what you get. The reason I gave two stars is for the people of the college, the students (the students parents) at Lynn are wealthy, so you will see a lot of Range Rovers, Maseratis, Bentleys, money, etc., this type of wealth at a young age doesn't make the nicest of people and I found a lot of students to be snobby and hard to connect too. The school has no spirit and lots of students party and go down to Fort Lauderdale or Miami to drink and do other stuff. The second reason is the price, unless Lynn gives you a pretty hefty financial aid package there is no reason why this private school should cost $60,000+ to attend, I sadly made the mistake of going here, and I am transferring after one semester because the cost of attendance was very concerning, the reason why I have a problem with it is because Lynn doesn't really have a name for itself, and it's not prestigious to employers like many other schools in the same price range. A side note if you want to live off campus instead of the poor dorms that Lynn provides get ready to spend close to $800-$1000+ for rent, Boca Raton isn't made for college students it's made for wealthy people who can actually fork out that much a month. The university I am attending know cost $40k less then Lynn and the program has many opportunities with employers, unlike Lynn. So what I am getting at here is do your research and make sure you have money to go here! Lynn is excellent at marketing its school but can be shady once you already sign the dotted line, I ran into multiple problems with financial aid and had no choice to take out some loans. This is an average school with average professors, don't let them trick you with the Dialogues of Learning crap that makes them so "different," only four credits transferred because the Dialogue classes didn't match up to general education classes in the public university I'm attending now. If you sit in the library, you will hear a lot of students talking about the cost and wanting to transfer somewhere else. Another big eye opener was how disinterested the students were in class; there was no motivation to do a standard three to fourth DOUBLE SPACED paper, and the professors were very lenient on extending deadlines multiple times in the year because only a handful of papers were turned in. The classes felt super easy to me, and I even struggled in some classes in high school but walked away with a 3.8 GPA first semester at Lynn, it might sound good to not have hard classes but college is about being challenged in classes and working through ideas and problems to get you skills that you will use in life. If you made it this far, I hope you take my advice. I read every college review page and did my research before I committed to Lynn, and I am glad that I am finally out of there, the cost of the college isn't worth it for what you get.

    lynn university is an innovate and game changer as a school that seeks to be one of the aboluste best. for example, they have all kinds of consumable options to devour that are quite tasty when dealing the usual stresses of courses and finances that comes with being the next generation of hardworking citizens. it also is fundamental for anyone that yearns or craves for a superior connection with technology in their academic center such as the case we have in providing ipads to every single learner trying to reach for the stars.

    This school has everything you want in your typical dream school. I love the message they believe that students should't be measured by numbers, so it's Test-Optional. Even though it may be a bit expensive they provide a lot of Financial Aid!

    Lynn University is a diverse learning environment with small class size that makes you more comfortable to interact with your classmates and teachers. It has a small town feel on campus and you eventually get to know everyone so you aren't just another name on class roster. You make friends with people all around the globe and locally from each state.

    A very good school, close to plenty of nice places to go. If you ever need to find food or anything for your dorm room, you can easily find plenty of stores that can accommodate you. If you ever need to get anywhere in Florida and don't have a car, there's a train station just down the road.
