Our Lincoln University Police Department has done an outstanding job on this campus. They are a positive role model, they make themselves available if anyone needs anything, they sit in the caf and eat with the students and bond with them to show their support to us. Our campus has extremely improved over the last 10 years and all the thanks goes to our on campus Police. They are very known on this campus and it is known that they will not tolerate unsafe things. I give Lincoln University police department at 100! They are the best.

I study at Lincoln University in Missouri and the quality of education is great! I am an English Education major and the class requirements to fulfill my degree are ones that are full of information that I know I will be using throughout my career. The professors are extremely knowledgable and more than happy to share information and be as helpful as possible. However, finding an advisor who knows exactly what needs to be happening can be difficult- many students, including myself, have become their own advisors when it comes to class selection.

I am an English Education major at LU. The program is great! The professors are extremely knowledgable and love sharing what they know with their students. Of course there are the rare professors who seem to enjoy listening to themselves talk more than they care about teaching, but it is not common at Lincoln University. The classes are fairly small- usually between 6 and 30- so if you are looking for more discussion and less lecture this is definitely the way to go. The staff are fairly easy to contact, but via email only and if you need help over the weekend you are usually going to be out of luck. Also, finding an advisor can be difficult. Other than that, I have not had any issues with my university. I love the class sizes and professors I've come in contact with.
