I love Lindenwood because I have made an experience out of my time here. I knew I needed to get involved on campus in order to make friends, have fun, and get the college experience that I want! Overall, my Major and Minor professors (Business, Businees Administration) have been excellent. Campus life and party life are not good since I used to go to Belleville Campus which is located in a very small city that does not have a lot of options. Food is alright, but they could have more healthy options. It's hard to be healthy at this school. The campus is beautiful, and if you make friends easily like me, you don't have a problem with the commuter culture. There is also a big international culture in the college that is full of international students which was great for me.

My experience at Lindenwood University has greatly exceeded any expectations I could have possibly had before attending. I knew I wanted to go to this school the second I saw the campus. The campus is gorgeous and is just a walk away from the beautiful and historic Main Street of St. Charles. I've had great experiences in the class environments and most of my professors have been highly attentive and extremely helpful. Lindenwood has also given me the opportunity to do hands-on work in my field of study and make many connections while finishing up my degree. Overall, I will always be extremely grateful for deciding to attend Lindenwood.
I am attending Lindenwood via online access. So I can't speak on the campus or normal student life. However, I can speak so far on the instructors I have had. The instructors have been very knowledgable. The only issues that I see is the technical aspects of the canvas program, and some of the classes that are designed to be taken. A four week course online isn't logical for full time parents or employees. Online courses are normally taken by people that are full time employees or parents who can't attend an in person class. Dealing with work and/or kids on a daily basis doesn't leave a lot of time to read multiple pages, doing multiple papers, doing multiple quizzes, and discussion forums in a one weeks time period.
