LMU was my first college choice. I really like the campus size. It's large (area wise) but most of my classes are within easy walking distance. I drive to my classes usually just because I'm too lazy to walk. The faculty and staff are always friendly and open to talking to you during or after office hours (use the office hours). The dorms are really nice. I haven't been in the traditional style but people say they're nice as well. I live in the village (apartment style) and they are really nice and all buildings on campus have really fast wifi. LMU is a very safe campus. They have fully armed police officers and security guards available 24/7 365 days a year. They can be seen patrolling campus often. There are also immediate police contact boxes on every floor of the dorms. They will even transport you to and from your destination if you feel uncomfortable. The professors are good for the most part and I really like my classes. You should really consider LMU!
Review Lincoln Memorial University
I am a freshman pre vet student at LMU. The campus is beautiful, safe, and small. The lab facilities are brand new and the math and science building is amazing. The professors I've had so far are great and really care about the students. The only issues I've experienced are the shuttles and the food. The shuttles are inconsistent and some times don't run at all. The food is hit or miss. Some foods are really good, but others aren't.(Most of the meat is really tough and/or dry.) At least there's always pizza and a salad bar, right? Over all, LMU feels like home and is like a family. I just wish the shuttle schedule and the food would improve.
Well this is my first semester at Lincoln Memorial University. Everything is going good so far and the teachers seem very educated and focused on teaching their students all they need to know to become successful. I'm currently enrolled in the nursing program and even though it's tough and there is a lot of work involved already, I'm up for the challenge. I like that Lincoln Memorial University has many different campuses because it makes it convenient for students everywhere to attend one of the locations closer to their residence. The only thing I would like even more about Lincoln Memorial University is if the tuition was a lil but more affordable. I understand it is a private university and you get what you pay for so it still balances out.
