good things about this school: it's absolutely gorgeous, the natural
life on old campus is well kept and you will
meet great, lifelong friends. The end.
Now to the
negative. Everything. I left this school for the University of
Illinois. A real, actually challenging school. Lindenwood I feel did
not challenge me. I sat around my dorm most of
the day after classes since there is no night life
unless you're 21. And if you are 21 and come
back to the dorm drunk they make you call your
parents and tell them you have been drinking. So to
begin the rules and policies are ridiculous.
are same-gendered. In a sense that is nice because you
can walk out in a sports bra and shorts and
feel okay. But the visitation is horrible. You can only
have the opposite gender in the dorm from 4-10pm on
weekdays and only till midnight on weekends. If your movie
ran 4 minutes over the end of visitation you had
to stop watching and pick up the last 4 minutes
later. Also other parts of campus close after 12 so
it's impossible to work on a project with peers anytime
past that. The open door rule is very enforced. My
RD would use a ruler.
The staff was alright.
Some of them really cared about you and really wanted
you to succeed. Other staff did not care about you
and would demean and be incredibly rude to students. They
would just tell classes they are dumb and don't know
what they're doing. It made many students in that class
Campus security is either really good or
really bad. You have to be on their good side.
If you are on their good side you get whatever
you want. I never had to pay a parking ticket
because they loved me. Other people I know had to
pay hundreds in parking tickets just because who they are.
The parking situation is horrible. They do not have
enough space. The residents don't have enough parking and during
the day the commuters take all the residents parking. It's
a mess finding a place to park. Also if you
are handicapped don't expect to find a handicapped parking space.
That brings me do the lack of ADA Compliance
this school has. It is impossible to get around if
you are any way physically handicapped. I wear a leg
brace and use a wheelchair from time to time. The
school didn't even care to put me in a handicapped
dorm. The dorm next to me was more handicapped. Also
they never clear the roads or anything. You can't get
them to change classrooms if you can't access them. I
had a few classes I missed often because I couldn't
get to the 4th floor of Roemer.
all this school is a joke. Many people describe it
as a joke. They treat you like children and you
gain no independence what so ever. I moved out in
November and commuted most the year after that. I with-drew
from Lindenwood and went to a respected University.
