Lindenwood University Top Questions

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


I wish I had known that there is almost nobody that stays on campus during the weekends.


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.

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.
