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.
Review Lincoln Memorial University
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.
Coming to Lincoln Memorial is the best decision I have made this year. It is an amazing school with great academics and great people. In just one semester, I have made so many lifelong friends and some unforgettable memories. The academics here are not easy, but the professors are very personal and give extra help whenever you need it. The athletics are also awesome. I am a beach volleyball player, which starts in the spring, but our indoor season is going great and we are headed to regionals next week. Many of our sports teams make it to conference championships, regional championships, and sometimes national champions. LMU is the place to be.
