College Sophomore

Computers: I have not yet started attending this school.

5 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is not an issue at all. The parking is close to dorms and buildings but there is no need to drive from building to building. All of the buildings are close enough to walk from the dorms.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload at LCU is hefty, but rewarding at the same time. The professors are passionate in their teaching and their willingness to be available for students is admirable.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Lincoln is a fairly remote area with not that much to do off campus. There are a few parks and bowling available. Even thought there isn't much to do in Lincoln, there are several bigger towns within 30 to 40 miles.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: LCU is fairly diverse. LCU has a Chinese Institute which creates a more diverse environment. I would say that most people feel accepted.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Completely safe. I have no fears or concerns about my safety.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is no drug scene at LCU. Students sign a covenant agreeing that they will not participate in illicit drug use.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are not as popular at LCU as they are at some schools, but they are supported by most everyone!

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Lincoln Christian University is a campus full of students trying to live a life for God. For the most part everyone is social and welcoming. I would say that everyone's looks are unique and their interests are as well. When it comes to social lives, students have the choice to be very social but they can also choose to be a recluse. Essentially, each student decides for themself what kind of social life they are going to have. Relationships are rampant at LCU as I am sure most Christian schools are. For anyone coming to LCU I would caution them to not rush into a relationship (it is a SMALL campus), but if the right person is there follow God's lead.

Off-Campus Dining: While there are some local restaurants in Lincoln which are great, there are mainly fast food restaurants. The only late night options (after 12) consists of McDonald's (drive thru only) and Steak and Shake. Cost is consistent with fast food prices.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Most people would say that LCU is strict when it comes to the rules the students are asked to follow. However, I would say that the covenant that we sign strengthens us as a body of believers. One thing that I think that could change is the open dorm policy. On Tuesday nights the boys are allowed in the girl's dorm and Thursday night vice versa. I think closed dorms are great, but I also think that weekend hours would benefit student life.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The community aspect of LCU is one of the best highlights about the school. There is a gym which has a cardio room and weight room which are both always available to students. Along with the gym there is a field house which is available to students. The warehouse would best be described as the student hangout. It has a coffee shop and is simply a great place to hangout and play games or do homework. Personally, most of my time is spent in the warehouse.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The availability of computers on campus is great in the fact that there are several labs with computers that are available, however the internet connection is not always reliable. A personal printer is not a necessity but a personal computer is extremely valuable. Wireless access is always available but can sometimes be slow.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I wish that there were more scholarships available for children and family studies majors. There are many for other majors but the scholarships for this major are limited which made it hard for me to qualify for more than a couple. When it comes to financial aid at LCU better communication would benefit the school greatly.

Computers: They are good in the computer labs, sometimes the internet at lincoln sucks

Campus Strictness: They are fairly strict about following the covenant you sign, but other than that there are not very many rules and you are encouraged to make your own good decisions. There are no curfews after your freshman year.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We have three sports for each gender. We are a small campus, and our teams other than guys basketball, and women's volleyball are not the greatest, but students are pretty supportive. I personally have been involved in soccer, and I just love the Christ-centered community of the team. I think we have a great athletic program in the sense of sportsmanship, and showing positive, and Christ-like attitudes no matter what the outcome.

Campus Strictness: Our campus is pretty strict, but I think it's a good policy because we are a ministry based school. We have a student covenant that has policies such as no alcohol, sex, drugs, etc. And I agree with most of the restrictions the school places on the students, mainly because if we were involved in those things, not only would it hinder our academic ability, but it would moreover hinder our relationship with Christ, and serving others.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Lincoln is a fairly small town, but coming from a small town myself, it is perfect. I mean, having a wal mart and a grocery store in the same town is kind of a big deal, and is also convenient. Overall, the local people I have ran into are rather polite, and I think it's a great community to be in. Even though the community is small, I love the bond our campus has, and with the amount of outreach events we do, we get opportunities to venture out to the cities around us. We are close to Springfield, Peoria, and Bloomington, which are all no longer than 45 minutes away. I love it here.

5 College Junior

Academics: I feel I am getting an exceptional education here. I am an intercultural studies major, and many of my professors have been outside of the country, and teach both from experience from the ministry field, as well as from academic knowledge. They are genuine about their teaching, and I learn so much from them. I have had several opportunities to get connected with other ministries, as well as gain experience by going on trips, and serving local ministries.

3 College Junior

Weather: Its a midwest university so it can be windy, snow or beautiful sky's depending on the season and the day.

4 College Junior

Academics: I am in the online Intercultural Studies Master's program. The program is phenomenal. The content of the classes is direct and very pertinent. The reading load is heavy since it's an online program but it isn't busy work.
