Lincoln Christian University is a good college if you are looking for a small campus where everyone knows one another, strict rules, and unsuccessful athletic programs. It was good for my spiritual life, but that is all.

Well, I am impressed by the high level of teaching at LCU. I am disappointed that one of the 3 professors left last year because I really enjoyed her teaching style. Each professor is very different, and I have to change my learning strategy with each professor. The program consists of all required courses as 8 week night or online classes. 2 elective classes must be chosen as a concentration, and those are 1 week intensive courses. The setup allows all full-time individuals to take these courses.
This is my third year and the staff and administration has handled any question, concern, or issue I had in s timely manner and with diligence. The professors are helpful and are dedicated to education. Whenever I have had tough conversations with my professors we find a resolution we both can agree upon.
