| I am so disappointed in this school. I came here as an international grad student and was told I could work 20 hours a week on campus but when I arrived here it became clear that I could not work at all. There are plenty of jobs on campus but they are all for work-study eligible students and nobody will employ an international student. And this is at a University where 1 in 4 students is international. I was told I could apply for teaching and research assistant jobs before I came and once I arrived they said Lynn does not offer positions like that. Staff are snobby and not understanding, the admissions office was great at first but now that I am here professors do not reply to emails or return calls even if it is something important. The classes are so easy, but then the exams are really hard. The campus is full of 17 year old girls who think they are paris hilton, it is worse than being back in high school. It is just one big popularity contest and 3/4 of undergrad students here dont even graduate. The smarter ones transfer somewhere else but most of them drop out. I have myself often thought of dropping out because I am so disppointed in this school and am sorry I invested all this money and this is what I am getting. I wish I was at FAU or some other school that has a good name going for it and dedicated staff. |

Clearly you either love or hate this school. There is no middle ground. Yes, your college experience is what YOU make of it... but, by that logic, you could go to ANY school and enjoy yourself. Look at the facts:|
1. Lynn has a low graduation rate (28%)
2. Tuition (including fees, housing etc...) is around $40,000
3. 60% of the students do get some amount of financial aid BUT the average amount of aid awarded is only $11,000.
Additionally, I can't help but notice that many of the positive comments left by students contain the same buzz-words and phrases that the administration uses to advertise the school. There is actually a channel on tv that advertises the university 24 hours a day (it replaces the food network). Why do you need to advertise your school if the only people watching are current students!?!?! Propaganda to brainwash those who are highly susceptible to manipulation!

| The teaching quality amongst SOME faculty members is excellent but higher standards do need to be set for students. Lately I've seen an attempt at this. Also, the university is 25% international (a very big plus). Thus curriculum NEEDS to be concentrated with a more international slant. |

| I received my undergradaute degree in Business Administration from Lynn in 3 years thanks to the help and support of faculty and staff who knew that my time here was sensitive due to my amount of outstanding loans. Upon graduation, I was offered a Graduate Assistantship to further my education with tuition covered by the school.|
I don't even know where to begin to desccribe the value and priceless experience this university provides...this places changes people; it changed me. I came here with a basic, yet somewhat esteemed transcript from high school, but it was Lynn that made me utilize more potential than I ever thought I had. More than just the skills and abilities of business have I gained; I'm a better person who is accepting of worldly diversity and eager to learn every day. I am appreciative of opportunity and the privelege to receive such an individualized and cohesive education and personal growth throughout college. I've been able to utilize the material learned in the classroom within the numerous amount of student organizations and local community, as well. Every single teacher at this University has worked in the field they teach; so I do not only feel ready to embark in my career path, but I am confident to set myself apart from other college graduates; because I have gained skills and attributes that can not be found in a text book. It can not be bought or simplified into notes or guidelines; it's an experience I've had at Lynn that is incomparable with any other experience in my life; I am confident that this school will change infinite amounts of lives in the future, because it is here where you can discover and will discover who you are.

Lynn's Graduate Program is fantastic. I am able to have a full-time day job and take classes at night. I am currently working on my thesis and the professors have been there to help me every step of the way. I have been able to tailor the program to my specific interests and in so doing, have remained passionate about the research topic throughout the program. |
The classes are small and very much discussion based. The professors comprise of Fulbright Scholars, professionals, and true academics. However, they are very forward-thinking and guide the class in learning discussions on pertinent, pressing issues that are current. Additionally, theories are discussed in depth, and analyzed in each class.
My classes range from 7-9 students. Many of the students were undergraduate students at Lynn, who just couldn't leave! I am one of them! I may have to do another Masters when I graduate!

| I absolutely loved my experience at Lynn. The university is a exceptional and extremely unique. The small classes, innovative approaches to learning blended with students from all backgrounds makes this the perfect place to study. I learned a great deal during my time at Lynn and wish I could continue my studies in a PhD program. I highly recommend this institution and am proud to say that I graduated with my masterâ€™s degree from Lynn University. |
