Am learning a lot
The five stars are not a joke. I am currently a freshman at Lindenwood University and I have learned so much within my first semester. Already I have learned with hands on experiences and in the classroom with terrific teachers. Those who are reading this should look further into the school because it is and excellent environment for both a student and student athletes because even the coaches work with their athletes and their education.
Am enjoying being here
I am enjoying my time here at Lindenwood University because I have already met many great people because no body at this school is shy and everyone knows one another. It is a smaller University but there is still a large amount of students and what is helpful is that the class rooms are not very big, meaning your teachers can get to know you a little better, allowing them to also help you beneficially in the class.
Bang for the buck
At Lindenwood University students definitely get the bang for their buck. I did not think I was going to get to go to college, but with a sports scholarship, grants, and work and learn opportunities, Lindenwood University has made it possible for me to pursue my dream in Athletic Training and to continue to play my favorite sport in the world.
Tips for prospective students
Always take opportunities that appear. Sometimes people say it is a joke or that it is pointless to go talk to advisers, career center people, and teachers, but if you want to truly succeed and get ahead of others then go and talk to them. They know information that others do not. With the Career center, they can help students look for jobs or internships because they know sometimes students can not go apply immediately everywhere. The Career Center is an excellent opportunity and so is talking with staff members.
Great for these types of students
Lindenwood University has a diversity of students, younger or older, and students from across the globe. You get to know these people and realise how similar you are even though you from two completely different places. Almost everyone at Lindenwood University is even an athlete which makes it easier to find common interests and the teachers teach students so well that anybody can understand.

Am learning a lot
I feel challenged everyday by the material itself and also by my professors to think outside the box.
Am enjoying being here
I really enjoy the smaller school feeling. I love how the campus is outside and the exercise you get just walking from class to class. I enjoy all of the people there. Everyone is friendly. I feel like the majority of the professors really care about how you're doing.
Bang for the buck
Everything has been pretty reasonable, and out of everywhere I applied they offered me the biggest scholarship.
Tips for prospective students
Talk to everyone you can in admissions to see what you can get for scholarships. They truly are there to help!

ALL TYPES OF STUDENTS. THERE IS SUCH A VARIETY THERE!

Am learning a lot
I am definitely learning a lot! I never had more than 30 students in any of my classes and it creates a great learning environment. Your teachers actually know your name and are really willing to work with you.
Am enjoying being here
Except for the crazy MO weather, I do love it here!
I love the campus. A new building dedicated to students just opened. It is a great place to relax, hang out with your friends, play pool, basketball, or whatever.
Bang for the buck
I think pretty much everyone here gets some kind of scholarship.
Tips for prospective students
Be open and ready to experience new things. It's not home or high school anymore. Grow up, get out of your comfort zone, and learn new things.
Some activities might not fit your standards, but if you give it a shot, you might enjoy it!
Great for these types of students
Pretty much everyone! There is people from all over the US attending that school, and also from many, many parts of the world (including myself!)

Lindenwood, and its teachers are amazing. I can ask any of my teachers about anything I need help with, and they will take whatever time is needed to make sure that I understand the information. The price for the level of education I'm getting is great.
Tips for prospective students
Have a good GPA, great work ethic, and be willing to work hard and learn alot. You get out of it what you put into it.
Academic Rigor
It can be tough at times, but not overwelming.
Dorm Life
Dorms are clean, quiet, and a great place to study. The other students in my building are very helpful, and we all share information in subjects that we understand well.
Food and Dining
The food at Lindenwood is great. Lindenwood has many food options to pick from, as well as a few cofee shops.
What to do for fun
Lindenwood has two gyms to workout in, three basketball courts that students can use at pretty much any time, an ice rink that students can use for free (skates included,) go for walks around campus, participate in any number of clubs, go to movie nights, go to the game room, and much much more.
Bang for the buck
The price paid for Lindenwood is well worth it. Great people. Great teachers. Great place.
Great for these types of students
Students of all types will do very well at Lindenwood
Clubs and Activities
Lindenwood has a lot of clubs to pic from. I'm sure we have a club to suit everyone. And if we don't, it's easy to start one.
Greek Life
Lindenwood does have Greek life, but I don't know much about it.
Campus Safety
In my time at Lindenwood, I haven't heard of any major safty issues.

lindenwood has been an amazing college to attend, and i should know because this is the third university i have attended. i finally feel comfortable at a school, and i feel like i am actually getting the education i am paying for. when i graduated high school i would have never imagined attending lu, but i am so glad it has found its way back to me.
Tips for prospective students
feel free to ask questions! all of my professors are amazing and since the school is fairly small, my professors are able to know me by a first name basis and help me out when ever i need them.
Academic Rigor
i have been in three broadcast journalism programs and lindenwood's program is by far the best. i actually had hands on experience the first day of classes. also, their equipment is top notch, so i'm able to practice on equipment people are using in my field today.
Dorm Life
all of the dorms are either male only or female only. there are visitation hours every week and weekend, so it's nice to know that i have a place to work on homework without distractions.
Food and Dining
lindenwood just opened a new facility geared only toward its students. the facility has a dining hall that is laid out in a mall food court fashion, so everyone can choose exactly what they want. there is also a second dining hall in the main academic building, as well as grab-in-go options all over campus.
What to do for fun
i love going to downtown saint charles and eating dinner on main street with my friends. the nightlife is great with live music, and it's very close to campus.
Bang for the buck
lindenwood is a little more expensive than a state college, but i honestly believe that the education i am getting at lindenwood is well worth my money.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
football is fairly big at lindenwood. our football team just went d2, and games are a lot of fun to attend with friends. we also have rallies and bonfires before big games.
Great for these types of students
students who want hands on experience and teachers who have worked in their field of study should attend lindenwood university.
Clubs and Activities
there are so many clubs on campus, it would take forever to list them all. if you are interested in something, there is bound to be a club for you, and if there isn't, the school is always willing and excited to add additional clubs to it's university.
Greek Life
greek life has grown rapidly this past year adding a new fraternity and sorority to it's list. delta tau delta and zeta zeta zeta are looking for new members as well as many other fraternities and sororities.
Campus Safety
saint charles is a great city with a low crime rate. i never feel nervous walking around campus or even to my car. campus security is always driving around and willing to help.

Lindenwood is a close knit campus and everyone is really friendly. It is very similar to a high school setting and easy to feel comfortable in classrooms.
Tips for prospective students
Lindenwood offers a lot of scholarships and is an excellent option to save money even if you aren't an athlete.
Academic Rigor
I am currently in pre-med and I find the classes are too easy and worry they will not prepare me the MCAT.
Dorm Life
Dorm life is more strict than most college campuses and it feels a little bit like being babysat. Visiting hours are from 12pm-12am and you have to get guests approved in advanced if they do not attend Lindenwood. There are no microwaves allowed in the rooms, but there are usually microwaves on the floors and you can bring your own fridge. Most of the dorms have air conditioning and suite style bathrooms.
Food and Dining
Food is included with tuition and you get 3 meals Monday through Friday and 2 meals on the weekend. The food is not bad and there is a variety of options on campus.
What to do for fun
Main Street in Old Town St. Charles is the most popular place to go because there is so much to do there. The Loop and Forest Park are also popular St. Louis places to go.
Bang for the buck
My books this semester literally cost more than my tuition. It is a very inexpensive school because they give out so much money and it is a great school for most majors.
Great for these types of students
Great for anyone that likes a small school and cheaper tuition.
Greek Life
There are 3 fraternities and 2 sororities and they have just approved expanding and bringing more Greek Life to Lindenwood. It is a great opportunity to get involved. There are not Greek houses, but each fraternity or sorority has a floor in specified dorm buildings.
