There is not a single thing that I don't like about Lincoln Christian University. Our professors take the time to immerse themselves in what they are teaching and make sure that we understand it. As students, we can talk to our professors not only about classes, but anything else in our lives. They keep an open door to us in their homes and offices always ready to lend a helping hand. Professors at LCU are definitely dedicated to creating life long learners and global difference makers which I believe is something that makes LCU unique. We have students all over the world that chose to commit their lives to serving Jesus Christ while at LCU. LCU prepares us to go out on the mission field no matter what occupation we choose. Whether we go to school for teaching, psychology, nursing, business, missions, etc. we are greatly equipped to serve and make an impact for Christ. Professors take time to listen to your dreams and what the Lord is calling you to do and then they help you put those things into action and make them a reality!
Review Lincoln Christian University
While we may not be the top ranked school in sports, our athletes have stellar attitudes on and off the court. As a christian school, we strive in everything we do, including sports, to show Christ in our actions, reactions and words. The school community loves to watch games and cheer on the LCU Red Lions. Our sports teams ALWAYS pray, win or lose with the opposing team regardless if that team is from a Christian or secular college. We have a wonderful gym, field house, soccer field, baseball diamond and work out facility that provides an atmosphere to have fun in no matter the purpose of it's use. School spirit is something students enjoy to take part in, it is always fun to gather as a student community all decked out in our LCU apparel to cheer our classmates on.
The girls dorm at LCU is pretty new therefore it is really nice. We have a kitchen, laundry room, living room and work out room on each floor and each wing has its own community room. They provide us with all of our furniture which is really convenient as well as durable. The community room and living rooms provide a great place to have social gatherings, play games or watch movies. The cost is definitely worth it to be part of such an awesome community within the dorm. The housing process isn't a hassle at all as most of it is taken care of by our dorm mom. With LCU there is no "worst option" as they always strive to provide us with the best.
