I love the campus! It's very peaceful and absolutely gorgeous. The students are always welcoming and friendly to everyone. However, the dorm room I'm living in is very small. Also, their art department isn't as great as I had hoped. I am a graphics design major, and I feel like I'm not getting as great of an education as I would if I were a nursing major or an aviation major, which are the school's two well-known majors.

I am a transfer student, who transferred to Lewis University. It is my first semester there and it has been amazing! I have recently joined a business professional fraternity. It will help me further succeed in my business career. I have made some awesome friends and the teachers there are very knowledgable as well. I would not have it any other way.
Lewis University is a unique campus. The school may not have a football team, but the school is not lacking in the energy, personality, or the spirit that comes with it. The school instead pours its energy into other programs, such as their division I Volleyball team, Division II baseball, stellar soccer, and incredible track and field team.
lewis is accepting of many kids who need second chances when it comes to academics, which may make it seem like its ACT scores are low, but don't let that fool you. I've met other students here with ACT'S as low as 18, and as high as 34.
Lewis is also always progressing, and making a bigger name for themselves with every year. For instance, Lewis is currently in the process of building a newer and bigger student union, with a larger 24-hour c-store, and an all you can eat buffet. they also plan to build a bike trail that runs all the way to the target nearby, a new student housing center, and a new baseball field on campus.
