I will be an incoming freshman and I have been interested in LU since junior year. The administration has been very helpful and helped guide me throughout high school. I went to take a tour in St. Charles (I live in Baltimore MD) and the scene is gorgeous! Everything is historic and the people are so friendly. I was advise to join a sorority and it will boost my experience, which I think that I will do! My only worry is that I'm very social and very eager to make friends and go out at night, but it doesn't seem to be a school that has night life. I plan on getting my Public Health sciences degree at LU.
Review Lindenwood University
So far I really enjoy my overall experience at this school. I've had a lot of experiences that I wouldn't have otherwise, and the classes are fun. Teachers are easy to talk to. My room and room mate are definitely bearable. The campus is gorgeous, though really hilly. The sport I am in has already offered me so many opportunities through this school and I've only been here a month!
Food is subpar. First and foremost, as you'll be eating here every day with very little variety. The academics are not challenging at all and classes focus more on attendance than anything else, I have learned very little since arriving here. The visitation rules are incredibly strict all over campus, and they treat students as if they are not the adults they are. Academic and financial advisors, as well as the people who are supposed to be in charge, seem to have difficulty doing their job-advising. Getting any paperwork through or finding out something you need to know is a frustrating and round-about process. My first dorm room also became filled with mold, a situation that was very poorly handled in my opinion as they almost didn't let my roommate and I stay in a different room. Just not a good experience so far. The sports are great, though.
