Every semester, Lindenwood makes sure that students have many opportunities to stay involved, have fun, and attend events where they can meet new people and enjoy college life to the fullest.
Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, some events will be conducted virtually. Lindenwood University always wants students to be able to have fun and stay safe at the same time.
This month, some of those events include “Let’s Get Quizzical!” with the Campus Activities Board, Leadership Series, and International Shopping with CAB.
