Overview

Students Experience Culture and Recreation in St. Charles, Missouri

St. Charles is a historic city located just west of St. Louis, Missouri. It was founded in the 1700s as a European settlement along the Missouri River. The popular downtown district of St. Charles, which is listed on the National Historic Register, is the site of dining, shopping, and art studios where visitors can watch artists at work. Outdoor recreation is also available nearby; St. Charles County has created hundreds of miles of bike trails for the cycling enthusiast.

Lindenwood's students enjoy the beauty of a small city, as well as proximity to the metropolitan attractions of St. Louis. In St. Louis, students can see the Gateway Arch, an impressive monument symbolizing this city's role as a route to the west. Visitors can explore a number of midtown art museums, including an open-air sculpture park, and the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, which is one of the leading botanical gardens in the world. One of America's largest urban parks is in St. Louis, as well; it showcases a zoo, science center, and the country's largest outdoor musical theater. The park also has facilities for sports, boating, and fishing.

Lindenwood University is a four-year institution named after the linden trees of Missouri that populate the campus. Its home is the thriving community of St. Charles, and its liberal arts legacy transcends almost two centuries. More than 120 undergraduate and graduate degree programs meet the needs of students. The growing independent university is committed to being affordable and accessible. As they embark on university studies, students prepare for careers and the challenges of life with general education core classes.

A Foundation of Liberal Arts at Lindenwood

Lindenwood University unites the valuable foundation of liberal arts with the latest in educational techniques. A traditional liberal arts curriculum is available through undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees.

The School of Humanities provides courses that constitute the core disciplines of a liberal arts education. The School of American Studies includes work at the historic Daniel Boone campus, where the Daniel Boone Home and Heritage Center are located.

The School of Business and Entrepreneurship, which was unconditionally accredited in 2010 by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, covers human resources, health management, finance, accounting, and information systems. The School of Communications encompasses both mass and corporate communications, including journalism, marketing and public relations, television, and radio. The School of Education prepares future instructors to teach age groups from kindergarten through high school. The School of Fine and Performing Arts, housed in the state-of-the-art J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts, provides for talent development and career potential in dance, theatre, music, and fine arts. Graduates of the School of Human Services work in the fields of criminal justice, social work, and in the armed forces.

The Bachelor of Science degree program within the School of Sciences incorporates natural sciences, mathematics, and behavioral sciences. Basic science is combined with applied science as the importance of investigation, the value of human discovery, and the ability to use modern technology come together with this program.

At Lindenwood, students can earn Bachelor of Science degrees in biology, chemistry, computer sciences, mathematics, and psychology. Pre-professional programs in engineering and nursing are also available. Coursework in anthropology, sociology, and environmental science can be completed through the School of Sciences as well.

Students can access laboratories and technologically innovative classrooms that are updated to keep pace with the ever-changing aspects of science and technology. They can conduct research alongside their professors and prepare for sciences that continue to move forward as they progress with their educations.

Lindenwood's Variety of Student Life Activities

At Lindenwood University, the Office of Student Life and Leadership joins with student organizations, such as the student government, social organizations, and university-registered clubs, to create a schedule of student life events for each academic year.

The office recognizes that student organizations should reflect the diverse interests of the campus community. Numerous student clubs sponsor lectures, films, dances, and other entertainment. Annual activities such as Homecoming, Parents' Day, and Spring Fling Week give students chances to take breaks from academics and celebrate their achievements in university life.

A speakers' bureau schedules and promotes skilled and knowledgeable individuals to speak on a variety of topics at the Lindenwood campus at events open to students, faculty members, and members of the community.

Through the Office of First-Year Programs, the university offers services designed to assist with the transition to the academic and student life at college to freshman and other first-year students.

The university promotes opportunities for involvement in residence hall activities, intramural sports, student organizations, and athletic teams.

In the summer of 2010, Lindenwood was accepted into membership in the NCAA, Division II. The university's athletic teams will compete provisionally in the NCAA and will be eligible to compete in postseason contests in 2013-14. While Lindenwood has competed in the NAIA, 24 of Lindenwood's 46 athletic teams will compete in the NCAA, with the remainder competing as club sports. Starting in 2012, Lindenwood's NCAA sports will compete in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association conference, the finest NCAA Division II conference in the nation.
