I went to the accelerated degree program.Quite BrightComputer Science
I went to the accelerated degree program. It is expensive and a joke. I went for cyber security and some of the classrooms didn't even have computers, yet they charge you fees every quarter for a technology fee.

If you miss more than 2 classes, you automatically fail the class, yet almost every quarter the instructors missed more than 2 classes.

The dean of the program, Gina Ganahl is a self absorbed piece of work. I would highly recommend not to waste your money on an education from here.

Question
There are only a small handful of teachersDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
There are only a small handful of teachers that care about you. Overall, Lindenwood is a negative environment. If you are going into design or technology DO NOT GO HERE. This is not the school. They are behind on technology and the career world. The school will not help find a job when you graduate nor will they help you get prepared. They have no work connections and there is no help for graduates or Alumni. Most teachers are not passionate and don't care about you at all.

Question
The biggest mistake of my professional career wasEnglish
The biggest mistake of my professional career was to go to Lindenwood. I got a scholarship and thought it'd be a great opportunity. A decent majority of the professors are not passionate about what they do and as advisors they're not really committed to helping you in any way. They see being an advisor as a burden. The courses are not challenging at all. Daniel Plate and Andrew Allen Smith were the only professors worth paying for, in my opinion, that are still there. The meal plan is terrible, the housing guidelines and restrictions are ridiculous to the point where you are basically treated as if you were still in high school, and the admissions and academics offices are unhelpful. Many of the students are pretentious film majors that think they're going to be the next Brad Pitt.

I highly recommend going to a more well-known university, such as Mizzou or SLU.
