Lindenwood University Reviews
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.
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.

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.
