I am a returning student enrolled in Lincoln College & my experience there has been great.The professors there are phenomenal they are willing to give you one on one help, well organized,& are always reasonable with students and other professors. There is a tutoring center where commuters & full time students can go to get extra help with an assignment, writing a paper,or to just to ask questions. Living on campus teaches you how to be a responsible young adult you have the chance to learn from mistakes & make your own decisions.Lincoln being a private, independent liberal arts college still have provided students with all type of activities and sports that you can get involved in.We have a variety of foods that is serves for breakfast, lunch & dinner. I know the hardest part about college for most students is paying for it. Our financial aid office provides students with useful information. Overall I loved my Lincoln College experience and I would recommend this school to anyone.
Review Lincoln College
Lincoln college, the best thing about the school is the teachers. They’re so helpful and will go out of their way to contact you and help you if you’re struggling. When I was in high school teachers didn’t do that. The town itself isn’t very exciting but Illinois state is only 25 mins away. There is no party scene on campus as everyone lives in dorms and the RA’s are very strict. It also lacks diversity as African Americans make up the majority of students. Also, there’s a lot of weed on campus and a lot of hard drugs but honestly if you stay away from it you’ll be fine. I love it here and the pros of the small classes and willing to help teachers makes it worthwhile.
Visiting Lincoln college was the absolute best experience for me. I meet a lot of students at Lincoln and asked them about their personal experience there. They loved it. I loved it, and the college counselors and students were very welcoming. I guess, one big takeaway for me is, college is what you make it. I believe it. I see it, and I can make it happen.
