Just to get it done and don't dance around the fact that you are still in school.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Lindenwood is extremely strict, and are more focused on catching students doing something wrong, rather than helping them with their future career goal.

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

When looking into different colleges, remember that Lindenwood is a private University. That means that they can make students go to classes on national holidays, and basically do what they want. The rules are very strict and sometimes a bit rediculous. GenEd classes are sometimes really pointless and a huge waste of time. The food is usually awful, sometimes edible. The professors generally have your best interests at heart, it's the school that is more focused on getting you into trouble, and kicked off your sports team, or even the school all together.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Students aren't allowed to have to opposite sex in their dorms or houses. Those who get caught are sent to the dean of students, and are usually given community service hours, or even possibly get kicked out of school.

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

My advice would be to major in something you love, something you are passionate about. If you love something and enjoy it, you are always more willing to work harder for it. Plus, you want to spend the rest of your life loving every minute, not being stuck in a career you hate just because it pays well. Then, after you've decided, do a lot of research and find the schools that have the best programs in the area that you picked. Don't settle. Strive for that dream school with that amazing program. After all is said and done, involve yourself in every new activity you can. College is a time to discover yourself and you cannot do that sitting alone in a dorm room.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I think the worst thing about this school is the financial aid department. They are completely useless and unwilling or unable to help. Instead of sitting down with current or prospective students, they let the student fumble around on their own and then slap them with a bunch of fees at the end of the year. They do not make any effort to give additional scholarships to anyone but international students, transfers and athletes.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I think the ideal candidate for Lindenwood is someone interested in athletics and from a fairly conservative, Christian background. The school focuses a lot on these areas. Although, the fine and performing arts division tends to be much more lenient and accepting of people who don't fit this description.

Very cutural, everyone who goes here is from a diffent country, in the st. charles area, or all around. Everyone plays a sport here.

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

Research on colleges early in highschool. Find son/daughters intrests that fit each school. Use excel and start using pros and cons for each one. Visit alot of school, and stay the night on your visits, so you can see how it is at night and inside the dorm. Ask students that go there that you know are honest and will tell you how it is. See if the education there will be challenging or if its to hard for your son or daughter.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Friendly, not the best highschool student, sport, student.

Lindenwood has such a rich culture of diverse students. There are over 800 international students for over 80 countries.

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

Finding the right college is a tough decision, but I recommend looking at alot of schools before you decide. Visit the campus, stay in the dorms for a night and really watch the student interactions on campus. Do not simply choose a school for a the degree program because you might end up changing your major. I have attended Lindenwood University for three years and I have learned and grown so much in this time. I made mistakes, but learned that college is not just about getting a great education. College is process of growing as a person to discover who you really are and what you really want in life.

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

I feel to pick the best collage is to find one that is up to YOUR standards. There are so many out there, that one has to fit perfectly. Beyond that, find a collage that has many different degree programs because you might end up changing your intended major. Last but certainly not least, find the collage that you feel you will get the get best overall education and experience. After all, if you are going to pay thousands fo dollars to get an education you might as well enjoy it too.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

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

Look for a school that can offer the classes you need in order to get your degree. Know the size of the school you choose and compare it to what you think you would be comortable in. If money is an issue make sure to find a school that you are able to work for, through a work and learn program , or in an area you can work outside school.

What's unique about your campus?

There is a large amount of diversity at Lindenwood. You get to experience and learn about alot of different cultures and people .

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

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

I would tell the parents that it's not their choice, but the student's choice where he/she wants to go to college. If the parents don;t let them choose then the student probably won;t have fun and won't want to learn where they are forced to go. I would tell the students that when it comes down to choosing a school to not choose a college for its party life, but also for its great staff, classes, and selections.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Lindenwood is close to home. There's always something going on.

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

Find a college that fits you, politically, socially, environmentally, religiously, and academically. There are so many colleges out there that appeal to many different likes and interests. Don't just stick to a college that's going to give you the most money financially because it might not be the best choice for you. Research colleges and make sure you know all the ins and outs of the colleges. You can call up to the colleges' club organizations and students will usually spend time on the phone with you and tell you about the campus. It's important to not make a rash decision on picking a college because you will be there for four years or longer. Overall, pick a college that fits you and is going to make you happiest. It's the time of your life to experience new things and meet new people. Have fun and don't waste time researching colleges, it's a long process that is worth all of the time!

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that is really into academics and is only here to do school work. This is not a party school whatsoever, there are a lot of strict rules that are really outdated and dumb. It's a good sized school and a small amount of students, if you like the small-school feel then you will fit right in.
