Alright. As it appears to be that everyone has characterized and stereotyped Lynn to its fullest extent, I'm going to give you the REAL gist of what life really is like here at Lynn, both the good and the bad.

Okay, so let's start off with getting in. Getting into Lynn isn't hard, and that's the honest truth. I did poorly on both my ACT and SAT scores and struggled in high school (I have a learning disability). After choosing Lynn as my college choice, I adjusted pretty fast. If you are someone who wants to go to a college and get through the ropes with a more relaxed and not overbearing type of curriculum or academic standing, Lynn is a perfect choice. Even better, if you're like me, Lynn is wonderful for kids who have learning disabilities. Tutors and mentoring are always available to help students with homework or projects, and you never feel embarrassed about being in the institute, being that the majority of the campus is in it, as well. All in all, it's relatable.

So with that said, let's discuss the people. Does Lynn have an abundant amount of wealthy students? Absolutely. There are many students here that have trust funds, parents that are successful Drs., engineers, company owners, stock brokers, and that hold other high-income paying careers. Do students here have designer clothing and fancy cars? Yes again. Audis, BMWs, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rovers, Lexus', and the like are pretty abundant here at Lynn, but of course that would happen if there is a high percentage of wealthy students that attend the school to begin with! Almost everyone is always well put together and well dressed, but it's not like you can never go to class in sweats and a hoody or something.

Is there a nightlife here at Lynn? Yes. Remember, this is school is in South Florida and in Boca! Miami is less than an hour away, Fort Lauderdale is 45 minutes away, there's Delray Beach which has great bars and clubs, and there's Mizner Park right in Boca! There is a ton of places to venture off to! House parties happen frequently, as well in many of the off campus condos and apartments. Those are fun, but get old fast. Take my advice and get a fake ID so you can venture out more, as the party scene here frequents the clubs and bars more so than the house parties; and getting a fake ID is really not much of an issue, since most people have them and can help you get one.

Drugs? Well of course there's drugs. Every college has drugs. Drugs that are common here are mostly marijuana, but there are people that do the more extremes, such as pills and cocaine and the like. If that's not your scene, then avoid it. You can easily find a group of friends that don't use and are not into the drug or alcohol seen very easily.

School work isn't overwhelming by any means, but take it from me, it may be easy to get into Lynn, but it's hard to STAY in Lynn. As in any college, if you get too caught up in the party scene or don't participate by going to class and doing your homework, you will probably fail out and not be welcome back the following year. Don't put yourself through that and just go to class and do your work. The work isn't too rigorous and the classes are too long. Most of them are about 45 to an hour long.

Majority of students here are friendly, approachable, and congenial. Some, yes, are "snooty" or "closedminded" but on a whole, most of them are welcoming and easy to approach.

Sports teams? We're pretty decent in the athletics department, but most sporting events aren't attended nor taken to an extreme like you may find at big state schools. There's plenty of tennis courts and a large soccer field and baseball field for those who like to participate however, as well as two large outdoor swimming pools.

As for the food here, it's give or take. Yes, it gets old after awhile but in general, it's pretty decent college food. I mean, what college out there serves mahi-mahi to students, other than Lynn? There are other options, such as Knights Court and Christine's Cafe, both which you must pay for and aren't exactly considered "cheap" but are options nonetheless.

All in all, Lynn is a good school. My biggest piece of advice I could give to anyone here is that this is a school for people who know how to network. Many of us come here because Lynn has fantastic connections and internships. You will get into a good graduate school and get a good job if you know how to network, and the rest is in your hands.
