Each fall, and throughout the year, Lindenwood welcomes students hungry for knowledge and buoyant with dreams of a great future. They are warmly greeted by faculty members who guide them onto paths of success that they themselves have experienced. At Lindenwood, success breeds success.
A Personal Touch
Our faculty members are not only mentors, they are also role models with track records of professional experience outside the classroom. They are living proof that a well-balanced, liberal arts education prepares students for life—not to mention success. You see, this is a teaching university. Unlike many other colleges, Lindenwood keeps it personal. Our students are advised and mentored one-on-one by professors who are committed to exceptional pedagogy in classrooms that contain no more than 30 students, often many fewer.
At Lindenwood, ideas and inspiration abound in our classrooms. But we also offer opportunities for students to conduct and present research at academic conferences. Our state-of-the-art performance and broadcast facilities provide professional opportunities for real-world application of academic training and concepts, even for freshmen! Our exemplary pre-professional programs open doors to in-demand fields such as law, medicine, dentistry, and chiropractic. And our top-quality NCAA Division II sports venues and the Daniel Boone Home and Heritage Center provide further opportunities to “live the dream” of engaging careers that our ambitious students bring to bear.
Best of Both Worlds
Don’t be deceived by our cozy and inviting campus in St. Charles that houses more than 4,000 residential students, or by our intimate campus in Belleville, or by the comfortable and accessible learning centers located throughout the metro region. Yes, Lindenwood is known as a university that provides individual attention and mentoring to each and every student. But LU is also one of the metro region’s largest universities, boasting more than 16,000 students system wide. Our many graduates provide a network of support that lasts a lifetime.
I invite you to join our community of success. We offer you the benefits of a large university with the flexibility of a private college. With this winning combination, students’ dreams really do come true.
