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 (art and education) have been excellent. The Gen Ed teachers are alright, some are amazing and some should probably be fired. Campus life and party life are good for me because I am a social person. Food is alright. Spellmann is great with Sushi, Chic-fil-a, Qdoba, etc., but you never know what you're in for at Evans. 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.

As an incoming freshman my experience at Lindenwood has been excellent! From the admissions office to the financial aid office to the women's soccer coaches. The people and coaches are ready to help and are genuinely excited about me becoming a Lady Lion and student. My decision to enroll at Lindenwood was based on their beautiful and safe campus, the amazing athletic dept. and coaches and the many options I have as I'm still choosing a career. I am beyond excited to start my college experience here at Lindenwood and have no doubt it will prepare me for a successful future.
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.
