lincoln university is an outstanding school that is very affordable. it's close to where i live, the faculty is always willing to work with you (the students) to continue to uphold their wonderful credentials and to make sure that you are getting the most you can out of your education, and they offer a wide variety of financial aid. i have had a wonderful past four years here.
Tips for prospective students
start your financial aid process early, especially if you need any type of loans. their financial aid department seems to be always busy and they seem to never be available by phone, so be prepared to go to campus (young hall) if you have any questions or need any sort of assistance.
Academic Rigor
this school is very proud of its students and its staff, as well it should be!
Food and Dining
the student center food is just about what you'd expect of any college campus or lunch hall. if you're never been on a campus, then compare it to that of a hospital. if you have been neither or these places, then compare it to your highschool's cafeteria only slightly more appetizing. leaves a little to be desired.
What to do for fun
the bowling alley on campus is always a blast!
Bang for the buck
absolutely the most affordable university you might ever come across, especially for the wonderful education being given.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
nothing super unusual to report, although there is a beautiful soldier's memorial statue right in the middle of the common area.
Great for these types of students
great for the student who is looking to achieve his/her personal goals on their own. the teaching staff is wonderful at providing individualized assistance, but you still feel like you're writing your own ending! great for personal growth and independence!!
Clubs and Activities
the student government really makes you feel like you're making a difference on campus and they do get to decide a lot of big decisions for the student body, unlike other schools i've attended that basically got together just to eat cookies, drink punch, and gossip.
Greek Life
several sororities and fraternities are available, although i have not taken part in them.
Campus Safety
the campus pd is very alert and prompt if ever unsavory situations arise. never felt unsafe on campus.

Am learning a lot
All teachers are generally consistent with their teaching and availability to help you understand.
Am enjoying being here
The atmosphere is really laid back. Jefferson City is a very quite city, so to be away from all of the hoopla is great.
Bang for the buck
The combination of the low tuition costs (compared to most universities), the peacefulness of the city in general, dedication of the teachers, and help of student life commitees....yeah its worth it
Tips for prospective students
Come in with a mind to get in and get it done. Its college distractions lie everywhere. Stay focused.

Lincoln University has helped me understand that the world in which I will enter is a competitive place. Too many times in the year youth of all races are discouraged and not equipped with the necessary knowledge on being a professional business individual. Lincoln University has allowed me be a well renown HBCU Ambassador and has allowed me to be able to give back not only to my generation but individuals who come after me with knowledge on how to be successful in this world.
Tips for prospective students
Please get involved. Being involved allows you to network, prepare yourself for the business professional and challenges you to keep your gpa up.
