Founded in 1827, Lindenwood is a dynamic four-year institution dedicated to excellence in higher education. Our historic campus is situated in the heart of St. Charles, Mo., a growing community of more than 65,000 just west of St. Louis. We offer more than 100 degree programs through values-centered education that lead to development of the whole person. Our faculty, staff, and administration are committed to an integrative curriculum that focuses on the talents, interests, and future of our students. Lindenwood is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Lindenwood University is known nationally and internationally for innovation, entrepreneurship, and extraordinary dedication to students. We believe that education is the way to personal freedom and responsibility, which are the keystones of any democracy. We have a heritage that dates back nearly 200 years. In that time, we have learned how to educate in a way that helps each student become an enlightened, principled citizen of a global community. Lindenwood is an independent institution firmly rooted in Judeo-Christian values. Those values include belief in an ordered, purposeful universe, the dignity of work, the worth and integrity of the individual, the obligations and privileges of citizenship, and the primacy of truth.

WHAT I LIKED

The chemistry department, while it is small is very academically sound. It is accredited by the American Chemical Society and the professors care about teaching.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food is bad. There aren't enough choices and half of the time it would give you food poisoning.

WHAT I LIKED

I loved Lindenwood because they gave me a chance to finish school. I didn’t think it was possible for me, and now I’m graduating with honors and starting an MFA in the fall. I love all of my professors, and the environment was excellent.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food was an issue. I’m Jewish and during Passover they just kind of threw matzah in with whatever they were making, whether it was kosher or not.

WHAT I LIKED

The admission department is very helpful.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

How long does it takes to be enrolled.

WHAT I LIKED

The campus is quite small so a lot of the buildings and resources are within walking distance. I enjoy playing rugby for Lindenwood as well and have encountered many international students. Campus life in Lindenwood is good enough, but wish there were more food options and more fun activities that happen on the weekends.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The campus security could do a better job at keeping noise disturbances down and the cafeterias could offer more food.
