3 Students rated Lincoln Christian University

Amber - 01/13/2019

I enjoyed being a student at LCU. I have been an online and campus student at our Las Vegas campus. The classes are all usually 8 week courses. The workload can be challenging at times because of the 8 week courses; but every class & professor is different. Honestly, I have enjoyed the variety of courses I have taken. I have been able to learn Leadership, ministry, biblical studies and history.

Wyatt - 11/07/2018

I thoroughly enjoy this school. This school has a family feel to it. I feel comfortable with every single person on this campus and I am learning so much in the classroom not only through my textbooks and professors but also about myself. This school is preparing me for the next step of my life.

Matthew - 05/23/2018

I have found Lincoln Christian University to be a 'home away from home. It a nice quiet location for those who desire to be away from the bustling and noise from the city. I have found a sense of peace and enjoyment by its location! The staff and professors are helpful and offer students both good advice as well as certain student resources that can be utilized at anytime. The only thing that is keeping me from giving this a 5-star rating is that the food quality. It is not terrible, rather it is acceptable but there is room for improvement. That aside, should anyone wish to start off their college studies on campus, I would recommend this college for them.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back in time and talk to myself when I was a senior in high school, I would tell myself to try harder in class and not give up. My senior year I started to get lazy with classes and grades and blamed it on senioritis. I would tell myself to try to do my best through that year so I would be prepared more for college. I would also tell myself to get more involved in the community and volunteer more. Volunteering would have given me a better knowledge of different situations that I would face in college. The last thing I would tell myself is to forget about the high school drama and live life by loving everyone even if they are different from me.
