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

Definately throughly research the schools that you are interested in and research the schools that are interested in you a lot more. Talk to students on how they like the school mostly because staff and faculty may have a tendency to bend the truth.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Tight ass people that do not mind be held under ever restriction possible. No campus activities every. People that do not mind being kicked out of school for having the opposite sex in your dorm room or if they find out that you are a homosexual. One will also get kicked out for consuming alcohol even if you are of the legal age.

Libral arts department...extremely high transfer out rate

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

Before deciding on your school do extensive resherch on the school you are considering ecspecially the transfer out rate. If the school youre considering has a high transfer out rate then it has alot of unhappy students. Also if you have the opportunity to speak to a student current or past take it, they can give you inside information on the school in question that an advisor wouldn't necissarly tell you such as how bad the food really is. In addition don't be afraid to switch schools if you are unhappy, you have the right to attend where you feel most comfortable and if that means four schools in four years, well then at least you learned alot. My high school was unacredited when I decieded to go back to school so I was left with no choice but to go where I am at but even if you dont like where you are at, while you are stuck there try to find the positive things in your situation. If I hadn't been forced to go to the school I am at I wouldnt have met my husband, some things are just ment to be.

What's unique about your campus?

Biology and Chemisty professors and nice but other than that there is nothing good.

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

I would recomend really looking into what you want to be. Just don't sit back, and think "yeah this is what I think I wanna do." Know what you want to do. Research, internship, and experince it. Parents, help your kids, its a tough world they are about to enter.

What's unique about your campus?

I believe the best thing about our school is the new arts building that was just built. Its a great additon to our campus.

That the campus itself, doesn't allow: Alcohol or allow students to hang out with the opposite sex unless during specified hours in there dorm.

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.
