I am very happy about my college experience. I have gained managerial knowledge which I would have never learned on my own. I had teachers that were actually in the Hospitality field and were speaking from experience. I have grown to appreciate the Hospitality field much more, because in the beginning I was not sure what I wanted to major in. I work at the front desk of a hotel now and I can say my college experience has helped me very much. I have met some wonderful people along the way and have made good friends. I believe my college experience has made me more outspoken as a person. It has made me a better writer and a better listener. I know that I still have a long way to go but personally I love school. It has made me a better person and I will continue until I reach my goal. I am not a quitter. I have taken good notes in college which I know will help me later on when I own my own business. I am very thankful for my college experience, because so far it has been nothing but good memories.
I wish I would have known more about the LCIE program which I am enrolled in right now. I still have some unanswered questions about the program. I am also unsure about the billing part of the school. I was told that when I meet with my advisor in the middle of my first semester I will get all my questions answered. I am still very happy that I have enrolled and I like Lindenwood University. Billing and the program itself would be what I wish I was more informed about.
The most frustrating thing about Lindenwood University, I would say, is that every undergraduate student is required to take the Communications cluster before moving on to any other classes. I have taken these classes my first semester at Forest Park and it is frustrating that I have to take writing classes again. I am going to school for Hospitality Management and those are the classes that I am interested in. I understand that it is better for me to renew my writing skills because it is required in my field. This is what frustrates me most about Lindenwood University.
My classmates are encouraging and have a positive attitude.

My college experience, so far, has been stressfull yet exciting. I love college.
The type of person that should attend Lindenwood University is the type of person that likes to be involved on campus.

I have a mixture of people: some are native Missourians and some are from different countries. They are extremely friendly and willing to share their experiences and any pointers to help you succeed. What I like most is that not all of them are fresh out of high school: some are like me and had to take a break before they could attend college, so I don't feel like the "old lady" among a bunch of "youngsters." There is a wonderful mixture of humanities and science majors which is great for variety in converations.
As a high school senior I thought I had everything figured out and did not listen to the advice my advisors and teachers offered. If I could go back and actually hear what they were telling me I could have saved myself a great deal of time and money. They discussed taking the ACT, I was absolutely sure I would not need it , so I ignored their advice--that was a mistake. While my SAT scores were high enough to gain me admission to all of my first choice schools, had I taken the ACT I would have been able to test out of certain lower level gen ed classes, such as college algebra and English 1 and 2. They also tried to tell me about scholarships and grants but I was too lazy and stubborn to write a simple essay or to fill out a scholarship form--now having thousands of dollars in school loans and having to work full time AND attend school full time, I know now that I didn't "know it all." While I would warn and advise myself of the many mistakes I made, it would have all been avoided had I just listened.
Even though it is not required for all schools, taking the ACT can work as a pre-test and allow one to take "test out" of lower level gen ed classes; School loans can pile up unexpectedly, scholarships and grants are some of the most important things a student can apply for and hope to get; be realistic when choosing class times--if you're not a morning person, do not sign up for an 8am class; take advantage of gen ed courses--sometimes there may be a better major suited for you than the one you intended.

When I first came to this college, I was just expecting to see people from Missouri here. It turned out that I met a lot of people from Spain, Ireland, Scotland, Jamaica, Bulgaria, Siberia, Dominican Republic, England, and all over!
Back when I was a senior in high school I knew I wanted to go away for college. Knowing that I come from Hawaii, being born and raised there to the transition of the Mainland I did not know what to really expect. I knew that I was excited and open minded about living in Missouri, I wasn't nervous or worried about much. I did know that I was sad to leave my family, but this was not going to be a permanent thing and the experience of being away from home would be worth it. I know now that this decision to come to this college was worth it because I can see the progress of me improving myself in swimming and academically. So with that said, the only advice I have for myself would be what I told myself before I left for the first time, to enjoy the ride and life experience and take control because this is where I will guide myself to creating a triumphant path to my future.
The food in our cafeteria is not that great. It is edible, but it sucks to go from home cooked meals to 'cafe food.' Another thing, if you are a swimmer like me the worst thing is that we don't have a pool on our campus. We have to find our way down to the pool we went out lanes for that is 15 minutes away from campus.

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.
I feel like I am still in high school. I am not sure if I feel this way because of how the students are treated by the staff or because of the people who attend the school, however I know that I feel like I am unable to be independent. The teachers in my major are wonderful, but in my general education classes I feel like I am taking high school freshman level classes.

If I could go back to my senior year of high school, my mantra would be go to school, don't wait, know what financial aid is, register at first chance and dorm life is what you make it. College is not one big party, you work for your grades and waiting a year does not help. You forget things quickly when your not in school. If you can go to school, go as soon as ou can. Don't just let your parents do your financial aid, if your 1000 miles from home and your money for your books hasn't been released from FAFSA and you need your financial aid pin, know what that means. You at least need a brief overviewing of what your financial aid covers and entails. Register for courses as soon as possible, especially freshman courses they are the fastest courses to fill. If you wait to long you may be in classes that don't pertain to your major. D
The best thing about my school is the cultures. Lindenwood University has one of the highest Foreign Exchange programs in Missouri. I learn so much by talking to my classmates. Sure books teach us, but I think one of the main reasons kids go to college is for the social experience. I learn so much talking to someone who lives in South Africa. It humbles you and changes your perspectives on life. I feel we are ambassadors to our country and we teach foreign exchange students so much about our culture. I feel blessed to work with so many people.
Lindenwood University is a wonderful school; many varied people can succeed here. I think anyone can join this school. Any person with the right attitude and drive can attend a college. I understand people not feeling comfortable at a very small college or a very large college; Lindenwood is not a huge campus so you don't have to worry about lecture hall classes. Lindenwood is large enough though that you see new faces in the hallway. Anyone who wants to succeed, has ambition, is not afraid of a challenge, and is willing to work will excel at Lindenwood.

The mirror was my enemy. I sat and cried wondering why my life was not normal anymore. I immediately was overwhelmed with fear,disgust, anger, panic, and tears. My heartbeat got louder as I stared into the mirror wondering where my desired life went. Elbows braced me on the counter as tears came strolling down my face and I began to shake. How does one person go from being so content and enjoying life, to practically dumping their life upside down? Being diagnosed with a type of cancer, Hodgkin?s lymphoma stage 3, a couple months into my 2nd year in college has thrown my life upside down. Looking back as a senior, one pictures their college experience to be the "cliche normal" life. Go to class whenever, go out and party, stay up, and sleep in late. I was terrifed then to get out of my box and "live it up". I was too scared to be whoever I wanted and just enjoy life. Now being at home, going through chemotherapy, I tell myself and my friends every chance I get,"Live it up, live the life you want, because one day, it might all change."
I Wish I knew that being far away from your home is a bigger challenge than you believe it is to be. I wish I had toured the city with my family a little bit more to familiarize myself with the town. As well as an idea of "how much stuff" to bring being from out of state.
The most frustrating thing about my school are the strict rules regarding dorm visitation.

I would tell myself to literally try anything. Hang out with every social clique in order to help you find out who you are. Also, follow your passion. Don't focus on what others thing of you. Do what you want. Travel. Explore. Never stay idle. Always be on the move. Approach everyone.
The great academics and social scene
The administration is hard to navigate and not very easy to communicate with.

My classmates are intelligent, passionate inidividuals with a desire to learn and to graduate in order to help shape the world for the better.
I graduated with over 30 credit hours already completed from advanced placement courses in high school. I was in the top ten of my class. I was familiar with success and achieving a high degree of perfection. But college is a completely different environment. For the first time in my life I was surrounded by people who wanted to learn, who were smarter than I was. On top of that, grades were no longer effortless. I received a ?C? for the first time in my life. I was incredibly hard on myself, almost to the point of giving up. I wish I could tell myself that while grades are important, the college experience is about much more. It is an opportunity to be truly independent and to learn to thrive on your own. It is an opportunity to meet an incredibly diverse group of people and make lifelong friends. It is the opportunity of a lifetime. I wish I could have told myself this, but at the same time I would not want to deprive myself of learning this lesson on my own. The road was rough, but it?s all part of the journey.
The best thing about Lindenwood are the classes and the professors. The university has no lecture hall classrooms, so all class sizes are kept small and the personal attention and quality of education received is excellent. The professors themselves are all there to teach. The university does not hire any research professors, so students never find themselves taught by graduate assistants. Student education and success is the focus of the professors. Overall, Lindenwood University is a fantastic school and I am extremely happy with my decision to attend.

The smaller class sizes are unique to USD compared to other schools I considered, and this has made it a lot easier for me to feel comfortable about asking for help from my professors during office hours.
Relax! Even though you are working hard to get into the college of your dreams and to recieve scholarships, have fun and enjoy your senior year as much as you can. Although it may be hard to imagine it now, you are going to have even less time in college than you do now. You are going to sleep even less and not go to bed before midnight because you have online homework due by midnight, so be prepared to have a strange sleep schedule. Be outgoing and introduce yourself to classmates. Not only will you make new friends, but also you will be able to study with friends you have known since the beginning of the school year rather than right before your first midterm. Finally, find a routine as soon as possible. A daily routine will help ensure that you get your homework finished early so you can find time to relax after your long days.
Students who want large class sizes and a college with a division one football team should not attend USD.
