"I live abroad with a full-time job and young kids, so a traditional MFA program was out of the question for me. Therefore, Lindenwood's fully asynchronous online model was an ideal fit. I appreciated the freedom to do the work at my own pace and on my own terms. Overall, the program helped me achieve my primary goals of growing as a writer and simply writing more. My instructors were helpful and supportive, and there were a number of courses of interest to me. My favorite part of the experience (a central part of all the classes I took) was participating in the weekly discussion forums and workshops. These discussions were lively and engaging, and I learned a lot from the insights of my instructors and peers."

"I completed my MFA at Lindenwood University recently. The program offers on-campus and online classes, I worked full-time and needed an online program flexible to my circumstances, and I could not be happier with my choice. The program offers various fiction, nonfiction, and poetry courses. Students can pursue a focused track and earn a degree with an emphasis or try a broad approach. I learned a lot about the craft of writing through lessons and exceptional workshops with participants from all over the world. My instructors were excellent in the subject matter and created an encouraging and learner-centered environment. The Lindenwood MFA professors offer invaluable support to the students. I am in contact with several of my peers and professor and am grateful for the opportunity to have gained a writing community. I highly recommend this program to anyone passionate about writing."

"My professors prepared me so well for graduate school and making me feel prepared to take on clients. They helped me prepare for applications to graduate school and even continued to support me once I graduated. So grateful to them all and how much they care!"

"Lindenwood is a fantastic school to attend for both undergraduate and graduate work. The campus community is so welcoming and kind, and the people truly care about you here. It's the perfect mix of a small and big school, with smaller class sizes but a larger campus feel! I've loved my time here!"

"As a whole, Lindenwood University is one of the best schools in the area and it shows. From my perspective, a returning student in her forties, it would have benefitted me greatly if I took more online classes. The campus is huge and some of the very old buildings were not handicap assessible. I had a bit of a time getting around. Other than that, it was an interesting experience. I loved my professors and the subject matter."

"As a transfer student, I was afraid to come to Lindenwood not knowing anyone and moving far from home. I found that there were so many other incoming transfer students and it was so easy to make friends! I was a double major, Exercise Science and Athletic Training, with a minor in Psychology. I absolutely loved my classes, professors, classmates, and the opportunities I got to participate in to further enhance what I was learning in the classroom. Class sizes are small, which helped me to be able to connect with my professors and classmates. I lived on campus all four years and loved each bit of it! majority of our students here at Lindenwood do live on campus, so it’s a very fun environment. The food on campus was great and there was always so much going on, whether it was sporting events or campus activities! St. Charles is amazing and there’s so much to do off campus as well! I truly loved my experience and am thankful for the opportunity to share about it!"

"This program is really awesome and I love my professors. Some of the coursework can be really challenging but it's all meaningful and I know it's setting me up for success. The faculty in the College of Ed are really great and they're so helpful and they know their subjects so well."

"Well, where do I begin. Attending LU was the worst educational experience I have ever had. The financial department takes about 5 weeks to respond. And, when they do, you get conflicting information. Professors take WEEKS to grade assignments. They act like you are bothering them by asking questions. Books not available on time. They cannot seem to understand why I would be frustrated. 7,000 a semester and they cannot understand. I do NOT recommend LU for your education. They know they really messed things up with me and I have YET to receive a call from someone who actually cares. Horrible experience. Do not do it!"

"I am a proud parent of graduate from Lindenwood University. My daughter graduated with BA-Business Administration-Magna-Cum Laude Lindenwood's Accelerated Degree Program while working a full-time job remotely. She will be applying for her master's degree in 2022 in the fall and proceed with her doctorate."

"Words cannot describe how awful the College of Education is. The entire department is a complete mess and in disarray. I have never in my life seen such unprofessionalism and disorganization in a college program. I've been through several college programs and Lindenwood was by far the worst. Not only was the entire program confusing and unorganized, but it left me completely unprepared for my career field. The College of Education really highlights why education standards across America have dropped so dramatically."

  • Degree: Exercise Science
"I really enjoyed my time as a student at Lindenwood University, especially in the School of Health Sciences. I decided to pursue my degree in Exercise Science as it would prepare me very well for when I would head into physical therapy school. I loved my time meeting all of the faculty in the Exercise Science program and made so many lasting connections with students and faculty members. They really do want to see you succeed, and if you show them that you are a serious student and put in the work, they will help you with questions you have and will help guide you towards the future you have in sight. I loved my time here!"

"I enjoyed attending Lindenwood University for the following reasons: there were plenty of programs for freshman that allowed me to get to know the campus and get to know the activities on campus I could participate in. Everything on campus is fairly close together, so I never had to walk far to get to classes or the dining hall. The one major thing I did not like about Lindenwood was the residential life. The buildings were oftentimes uncomfortably hot or cold, the fire alarms went off in the middle of the night, and it was difficult to get a hold of anyone to give feedback."

"As a parent of a student attending Lindenwood Belleville I will say I had really high hopes that this was a good opportunity. Unfortunately, between the professors cancelling classes before each long weekend, the coach acting more immature than the students and the location being in a a high crime area the overall experience is less than what I hoped to be able to provide. Professors grade on scales that do not make any reasonable sense and they make up rules as they go. They are teaching students to be intolerant of EVERYTHING and only encourage like-minded thinking once they've instilled their Liberalism into them."

"Overall I was very happy with Lindenwood. However, I'm still struggling to find a job, so it might be a good idea to be more focused on a career path/plan while in school. I didn't have a plan. I always said, "I'll figure it out later" and that has not worked out well for me."

"This University provided a welcoming environment for all types of students. I felt part of something bigger than me, where my goals and dreams could be possible to fulfill. The teachers were always a big support when it came to finding motivation and growth as I completed my degree. Being an out of state student, I was welcomed and treated with full confidence and financial support. This University has a great academic scholarship program that allows low/middle-income students get a high-level education. Moreover, the formation of classes and classrooms provides insightful interaction between the professor and student, being that there were no more that 30 students in each class."

"It's a scam. I got my advanced degree in accounting, but thru a couple temp gigs with Edward Jones and Carlson & Co., I found out that 90% of all the material covered in my classes is a bunch of worthless theories. Very little of what you learn about is used in real world. Their so-called "networking and career fair" is merely a chance for businesses in the area to say the same damned "if you want to apply for a job here, go online and make profile." There is little reason to bother with college. They apparently care more about ripping you off for a degree, then pretend to be sorry when ask why your degree isn't opening any doors."
