Everyone from staff to students are friendly. There are plenty of clubs, activities and many other ways to get involved to make everyone feel at home here! The classroom size are a great student to ratio size so it is easy to speak one-on-one with your instructors!
Lindenwood University is an amazing university. It's a quiet, suburban campus that makes it easy for students to get around and study outside in peace. The campus is beautiful. The grounds are nice and clean. The grass always looks perfect and green in the springtime. They've preserved the old-style architecture of the buildings. The campus has a very historic vibe. It’s also relatively easy to find your classes because it’s a small campus and there are directions everywhere. Parking isn’t an issue as well. I always found parking close to the buildings of my classes. As for the education, it’s superb. The classes are a good size and the teachers are very attentive. It’s very easy to get a hold of a professor. They always stick around after class if you have any questions and they’re always in their office during their office hours. Tutoring is also free and readily available. As for the extracurricular activities, they’re abundant. There are a club and activity for everyone. It’s very easy to make friends. There are also opportunities for learning outside the classroom because there are always guest speakers and professors from other schools who come to speak. I really miss the food the most. The dining is amazing. There’s a variety of options. We actually have Chik-fil-A and Qdoba at the school. We have two different dining areas. One actually has a mini buffet. The discounts for students are amazing. Commuters are included in dining discounts.
I love the atmosphere at Lindenwood, and the campus provides everything that students might need, including a wide variety of extracurricular activities. Although I love the small class sizes and dedication of the professors, my classes have not been as academically rigorous as I had hoped. I also find the student culture difficult to pinpoint because while there are plenty of involvement opportunities, students do not attend or participate, so the campus is quiet and it's difficult to make friends.
I absolutely love Lindenwood! I had toured a few other campuses before I came to check out what Lindenwood had to offer. As soon as I parked and stepped out of the car and onto Lindenwood grounds, I knew I had found my place. This university has so much history and charm! The grounds are beautiful all year round, and placed around are these swings that are just lovely to sit on between classes.
I live on old campus, which in my opinion is the best place to live! It's so close to all of my classes and has a pretty view of the entire campus. I would highly recommend Lindenwood University for anyone

If I could go back I would tell myself to not have any reservations. Do not worry about anyone else when deciding on a college. Do not think about your relationship with your boyfriend or friends. There are so many ways of long distance communication and your relationships will last. They will, i promise. I would tell myself, do look into as many schools as possible. Do apply or audition for as many schools as you can. Do try for the schools that you think you could never get in to; because you know what, maybe you will have that spark they are looking for. And most importantly love yourself no matter what, because if you don't love yourself, no one else will.
My classmates are truely diverse, traveling from many foreign countries to attend Lindenwood.
If you are student completely focused on your studies and do not care about partying this school is for you.
Biology and Chemisty professors and nice but other than that there is nothing good.
My University is the greatest ; I'm very satisfied with my education.
LU has a strict dry-campus policy. Also, the dorms are strict in their single-sex policies. There is visitation allowed, but it's closely monitored.
If you are not ready to work hard you should not bother attending this school
Afforadable education/ Education and business programs
The most frustrating thing about my school are the strict rules regarding dorm visitation.
There is nothing I consider bad about my school. Its a good school and I am getting the skills necessary for my career.
Yes, with few exceptions. I participated in athletics while staying away from partying and graduating with honors.
Most classes at Lindenwood are not challenging, but at least no huge lecture halls exist on campus. There are definitely students at Lindenwood who go there learn, and try to become successful career minded professionals, but these students are definitely outnumbered by students who don't try and only do the minimum required. Group projects were always a challenge due to those students who didn't feel the need to participate. For many of my classes, myself and one or two other people were the only ones who would participate.
Most students who live on campus are the athletes who stick with their athletic group. Other students who live on campus who live in the St. Louis area who do not participate in athletics do not actively pursue on campus groups. Some students in dorms try to be more friendly by leaving their doors open, but most stay to themselves. For those students who choose to drink, there's always several bars open in downtown St. Charles. Greek life is pretty much non-existent on campus, and is not important to student life. Some students try to create their own sororities or fraternities on campus, but they do not have their own house or area devoted to their group.
Most of the students can fit into a few categories: St. Louis area students, athletes, and international students. Most of the St. Louis area students commute, while some live on campus and leave on the weekends making the college a ghost town. If you find somebody on campus not from around the St. Louis area, 99% of the time they came to Lindenwood for some kind of sport. Most of the athletes on campus are more interested in their sports or drinking instead of excelling in the classroom.
One of the best things about going to Lindenwood were the small classroom sizes. I became close with all of my professors, and all of them knew me by name. For the most part all of my professors were willing to help when needed. For not being a religious school, Lindenwood maintains strict rules regarding separate dorms and no alcohol policies. A lot of times on campus students feel almost babysat by security who, if they catch you in the other gender's dorm or drinking on campus, will immediately be expel you from school pending a hearing. With one offense most students will be allowed back in school, and be forced to do "community service," which mostly consists of lawn maintenance or picking up trash. Recently Lindenwood has taken more steps in creating a more student friendly atmosphere, but for students who are not from the St. Louis area and live on campus they can feel trapped without much to do on the weekends around campus. Lindenwood definitely lacks an adequate student union. Lindenwood does boast around 40 athletic programs, however, most students do not become involved following these programs with the exception of football and basketball.
