Lincoln University - MO Reviews
Lincoln University is a good school, because it is small and tuition is a reasonable price per credit hour, however professors can be sloppy and unhelpful in the business department. I have several teachers who know what they are talking about and have experience in the field, but they are not passionate about teaching and that really reflects in the classroom and during office hours. I have another teacher who is highly unprofessional, talking about how she feels she should be making more money than the others and even makes it obvious which coworkers she does not care for. It is also located in a "rougher" part of Jefferson City, so there are at least a couple lock downs due to armed suspects being on the property. This is scary, but it is also a "norm" at Lincoln, and their idea of a lockdown is to email and text students not to go outdoors; teachers never know when there is a lockdown unless they are on their computers during their office hours. You must be thinking, "wow this school sounds like a mess", well yes it is, but it is also more affordable than anything else in the area making college for people like me, who are struggling financially, possible.
Lincoln prepared me excellently for my career. The instructor definition were awesome, I was more prepared than I realized. They didn't just provide a textbook education but were personable, and gave you a sense of belonging, encouragement, and a healthy dose of reality.
Being a graduate of this university, I have a lot of pride for my Alma Mata. However, when it comes to handling business, Lincoln University of Missouri is one of the worst. The instructors don't provide the students with enough to feel accomplished about their decision. Our normal class periods are 45 minutes long and even though it might seem intimate, most of our lessons are out dated and or serves no specific importance. As a journalist, who wanted to work in broadcast, the department should have equipment set up for us to use at sporting events and such scenarios. The excuse we were typically told revealed that the university was broke and stealing our money. Our student government was a joke as well. Promising that if we voted on the conditions, our voices were heard and demands would be made, Lincoln University often promised us the world and gave us dirt. What did I do after graduating Lincoln University? I became and entrepreneur. My resume and portfolio was so poor that I would get laughed at by my competitor sitting next to me. Nobody who graduates the Journalism program has gotten a job in journalism. Nobody that graduates any program, outside of the Education and Nursing programs, get a position in their field.
