Lincoln Christian University Reviews

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.
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!
