As an International Student
Are you looking for a great education, a lively campus, and faculty who are best known for their friendly attitudes and willingness to help you succeed? Then welcome to Lincoln College.
The experience our students have here is described by many as being personal and quaint. There’s a reason why so many international students choose to start their first two years of college here. Many of the international students who are admitted and begin their collegiate career here take part in extracurricular athletic teams such as soccer, swimming, and cross country, as well as get involved in other campus activities. We love to have the diverse backgrounds these students bring with them to our campus because it makes our campus richer and our students are able to learn from one another.
Our international students reside from Brazil, Columbia, Botswana, Australia, Kenya, Norway, South Africa, Argentina, and Denmark, just to name a few countries.
