Quaint and beautiful campus setting tucked away in the mountains of Tennessee. The people are friendly and the education is of high quality. There are a lot of opportunities to out-reach to the surrounding community.
Tips for prospective students
Great school if considering a medical centered career or potentially law (there is a law school up and coming). If your focus is arts/humanities/others, you may want to research offered programs first.
Dorm Life
Dorms are newly built, expanding, and beautiful!
Food and Dining
One cafeteria, a cafe, and a Starbuck's is offered on campus. Within walking distance you can find: a coney, Subway, Hardee's, and Haymaker's (local BBQ).
What to do for fun
Golf, walk in the neighboring park, hike the trails of the nearby national park, go to the movies, take part in many of the IM sports available through the school.

It is a great school with excellent educational opportunities. However the technology is slow and unreliable. Also it is extremely expensive and is located in an area that is low income so they should find ways to lower tuition.
Tips for prospective students
Apply for all the scholarships you can and try to live off campus because it is much cheaper and you will not be forced to buy an over priced meal plan.
Academic Rigor
The classes are great! You will be challenged to your limits but the knowledge you acquire will be well worth it.
Dorm Life
It's pricy but if you decide to live on campus, you will enjoy it.
Food and Dining
The food is edible but I can not find a lot to eat because of have a lot of stomach problems and allergies. I'm still unhappy that i have to pay for a meal plan that I never use.
What to do for fun
Hang out with friends or go out of town. The student center is an excellent on campus hang out.
Bang for the buck
Academically yes but it is way over priced; especially the two meal plans you are forced to buy if you live on campus even though you are provided with a kitchen if you live in an apartment.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Foam parties!
Great for these types of students
Great for students who love to be challenged.
Clubs and Activities
There are so many clubs that you are bound to find one you want to join.
Greek Life
The are three great local sororities and fraternities.
Campus Safety
Your safety is in good hands.

Lincoln Memorial is a good choice for students that prefer a smaller college environment. The area of Harrogate,TN and Middlesboro,KY is just big enough to have everything you need but not overcrowded.
Tips for prospective students
Be sure to stay on top of the admissions staff. They have a history of taking awhile to get application/ financial aid info processed.
Academic Rigor
The professors on campus are all well educated, and will challenge you. The course work is rigorous, but it is do-able. Lots of opportunities for tutoring if needed.
Dorm Life
During the week the dorm life is great. It's the perfect balance of social life/ fun and privacy. The people on campus are generally very friendly and it is not hard to quickly find a good circle of friends around campus. The main complaint I have about dorm life is that it is by far a suitcase campus. A vast majority of students go home on the weekends, although there are still plenty of things to do around campus. It is definitely recommended to have a vehicle on campus.
Food and Dining
The food is good, and if you live on campus you are required to sign up for a meal plan. The cafeteria has a good selection, with a wide variety of international and traditional foods. There is also a WOW Wingery and Starbucks on campus that has a good selection with decent prices.
What to do for fun
The national park less than 10 minutes away is a good choice for those that enjoy hiking. (The pinnacle overlook is a must see when visiting campus). There is a decent sized mall with a very good value movie theater($3-4 movie tickets). If you like to party there are plenty of opportunities to do so all throughout the week both on and off campus, you just have to ask.
Bang for the buck
The tuition/overall cost to attend is relatively inexpensive compared to other similar private schools. Especially if you are a Pre-Med, Vet Tech, or Wildlife/Fisheries major.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Student services puts on several events throughout the year ranging from open mic nights and lip syncing contests to foam parties and video game nights.
Great for these types of students
It is definitely a great choice for those students that love the outdoors. There are many places in the surrounding area to hunt, fish, hike,mountain bike, rock climb, camp, etc. It is also good for students that prefer smaller communities and groups. The people on campus really are like a big family.
Clubs and Activities
There are lots of clubs on campus that host a wide range of events all throughout the year.
Greek Life
There are 3 fraternities and 3 sororities on campus. They all have some sort of house or room that they conduct there activities in. Greek life is very active on campus all year round.
Campus Safety
The campus security is top notch. There is campus security and also armed Campus police officers that patrol and monitor 24/7. There is constantly at least 2 officers on duty who can be seen driving around monitoring activities on campus. They are for the most part very understanding and generous when it comes to traffic, visitation, and alcohol violations. There are security cameras in all university buildings and I can say first-hand that they are watched at all times(don' t ask haha).

LMU is a great university! The campus is beautiful & the professors are very helpful and understanding. It is very diverse; there are people from many places such as England, Scotland, Germany, New Zealand, Greece, Mexico, Russia, Guatemala, Brazil, and Japan.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you visit the campus before moving in & have your financial aid stuff done ASAP. Ask questions, be social & involved.
Academic Rigor
Some courses are very challenging. Professors expect you to study outside of class, take notes, and ask questions. They are willing to work with you if you have a problem. If for whatever reason you feel uncomfortable, you can go to the tagge to get tutored.
Dorm Life
fun! but it mainly depends on you and your roommate. make sure you room with a person who has the similar interests. Housing is very nice.
Food and Dining
The food is decent. We have a salad/soup bar, sandwich bar, international bar, dessert bar, pizza and hamburger bar. We also have a WOW (world of wings) & a STARBUCKS!!!
What to do for fun
Free bowling once a month, hiking, biking, swimming, gym, ice cream socials, movie nights, pool tournaments, sports games, trail riding at the Pinnacle and other locations. There's a small mall in KY that's about five minutes away with a theater.
Bang for the buck
LMU is a great school so I think it is worth the money.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum is on campus. It has may original artifacts and journals.
Great for these types of students
Great for people majoring in the nursing, medical, and business major. Also for people that love being outdoors. NOT for people that like to party unless they are willing to drive to knoxville.

Greek Life
The greeks are not very popular on campus. There are 3 sororities and 3 frats. Each sorority has their own house, but the frats do not have a house. They often sponsor events such as bingo night, zombie tag, movie night, etc.
Campus Safety
Very safe campus! We have security AKA LMU police drive around 24/7 and cameras in every building. It is safe to walk around at night but if you are afraid, you can call security and they will take you back to your dorm.

Lincoln Memorial has a very beautiful, welcoming campus. Since the campus is not very big, it is easier to interact with students and get to know people on a personal level to develop strong friendships. The staff are friendly and always willing to help you in any way they can.
Tips for prospective students
When you enter college, be prepared to expand your horizons and reach out to new opportunities. Take advantage of situations that will help further you academically and socially and seize each day as if it were your last.
Academic Rigor
The academic courses can be quite challenging; however, they push you to strive for excellence and do your best which will help you in the long run. Professors are always available and willing to help when needed as well as tutors who have already taken the courses who can offer you advice.
Dorm Life
Because of the small number of students on campus, you interact with others closely and develop into a tight-knit family. Living on campus is a fun and wonderful experience I encourage everyone to experience.
Food and Dining
The food is decent, and there's always a large variety to choose from because it is an all-you-can-eat buffet. The cafeteria workers are always friendly and serve you with a smile. There is also a wings restaurant to eat at which is also pretty good.
What to do for fun
The school is surrounded by beautiful mountains, so there are always plenty of opportunities for hiking and trail riding at the Pinnacle and other locations. Also, Middlesboro is about five minutes away, and there is a mall and several places to eat there.

Lincoln Memorial University is not only a fine place for academic study, but a place of solidity. This University offers exceptional degree programs that range from Criminal Justice to Veterinary Sciences, as well as, social activities to living up campus life. Lincoln Memorial is a place for growth both academically and personally.
Tips for prospective students
As a prospective student you should always keep your eyes open for upcoming activities. These activities range from hiking trips, sporting events but most importantly, study groups. Always remember to stay on top of your school work, set deadlines and always ask for help. We have excellent academic advisors and facilities; take advantage of them.
Academic Rigor
Professors at this university do their best to push their students to do the same. They challenge us so we can be the best in our fields. Admittedly, the work is hard but the benefits reaped are well worth the effort.
Dorm Life
LMU just added 4 new apartment complexes to their campus. Facilities are clean, well kept and safeguarded. majority of the living facilities are apartment style, with the exception of a couple other varieties. Students have the option to live in an all female or all male dorm if they feel more comfortable, or for students pursuing post graduate degrees LMU offers and off campus site for more of a quiet, study environment.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria options are sometimes hit and miss but mostly hit. They offer a healthy selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is also a Wingery of campus that stays open later in case students want a snack and if none of those options suffice, there is are plenty of restaurants around town to enjoy.
What to do for fun
LMU's campus is very student oriented. For fun attend sports games. LMU multiple teams that have both obtained and maintained national rankings. Also, get involved with student activities. Each month student life puts out a calendar with lists of events going on around campus, such as, movie nights, ice cream socials, and pool tournaments.
Bang for the buck
Coming to LMU from such a big city I was concerned with whether or not I would like it, but I love it. I met a lot of amazing new people and got involved with the country. Being a student athlete, one of my biggest concerns was how I would manage my time and maintain superb performance in both the classroom and on the court; but with the help of my coaches and the faculty I pulled through. I met people that help me make a difference in my life, not only that, but amazing friends.
