"Lincoln University is a great school to obtain a quality education. I found my time here to be a great experience from the instructors and life long bonds formed. The cost I paid to receive my education and financial assistance available was an important factor in receiving the top notch education."

"Because the school is small, our professors were able to provide additional guidance where needed and they cared about our success. My degree allowed me to land a Career with the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs, in a position that allowed me to travel the world and live abroad. The school was affordable, close to home, and the environment was extremely warm and inviting. I made friends that I am still in close contact with 40+ years later. To this day I still return frequently for homecoming week. I highly recommend Lincoln University (MO) to prospective students everywhere."

"Lincoln University offered more than just a degree. I always felt like the educators and advisors cared about me as a person and not just a student. I had multiple scholarships during my time at LU and as a result graduated with very little student loan debt."

"When I attended Lincoln, I had no real idea what I wanted to study. But after a run in with an adjunct teacher, I was referred to meet with the head of the school of Education. Meeting with him and discussing what I felt was wrong with the teacher, he said you sound really strong about what you think a teacher should be. I agreed and he said, well come to the open house the school of Ed is having next week. From there, I was sold. The education I received prepared me for my life. I was able to do my student teaching in an environment that I would have never been exposed to. When I enrolled to get my Masters degree at a much larger school later, I was more prepared for the course load and the work needed to succeed. The friends that I gained there are now like family members. We're in touch almost daily and are there for each other for everything. I have earned other degrees since leaving Lincoln, but none mean as much to me as the degree I earned from Lincoln University."

"I am thankful for my experience at Lincoln University, Mo. As an undergrad, LU prepared me for grad school and my current occupation. The HBCU experience was priceless. We were a family and we took care of each other. Faculty and Staff cared about you and wanted you to be successful. I’m thankful for my undergrad experience."

"I really found out who I was when I came to Lincoln. My instructors were very competent and knowledgeable in their content areas. The school is small, which allow the tuition to be inexpensive. Making the decision to attend Lincoln was the best. I Love LU"

"The most disorganized, unqualified, and under-prepared instructors. Poor quality clinical experiences. Instructors frequently teach incorrect information. Provided materials and teaching are not enough to learn the content. You pay the school and then you spend a bunch more buying other books and programs. If you ask questions they don’t know the answers and they do not care about it. They say you are the student and they are not working as a nurse anymore."

"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."
