    I absolutely loved Lindenwood University and all that this educational institution had to offer! I studies my BFA in acting, and felt right at home within the theater program! The teaching was applicable, and helped challenge the students to grow incredibly in their time there.

    I love Lindenwood! Overall, I enjoy the classes, people, professors, and culture of the school. There are some professors I had have issues with in the past, but they have been resolved. I would highly recommend Lindenwood if you are a music or education major.
    I love Lindenwood. The people are very academic and all-around fun! I gave LU 4 stars because it has its flaws, but every school does. Since it’s pretty small, there isn’t much that can be done to change dining plans or dorm residency, but I think freshmen would enjoy better visitation rules. Go Lions!
