Overall Rating

Lincoln University is not that bad of a college. I would say it is not best for all students. With education there are so many places you can go to get any topic and the teachers are there willing to help you. The one thing I can really say that would make you enjoy college better is get involved in anything and also study. For me personally I think the people I know make college more exciting. I would say don't be afraid to make friends because you will really them if you are planning on staying on campus. Lincoln is not a big college and you can easily feel so lonely if you do no know anyone. One final thing is take advantage of all you can because life is hard and why make it any harder.
