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.

Taking a break from classes, homework, and responsibilities is important throughout the semester, especially in the beginning.

Many students spent a classes-free and homework-free summer, which made getting back into the habit of studying challenging. During the on-campus events, students can recharge and take that so-needed break from studying.

This month, some of the events include Floral Friday, Family Day, BSU movie night, and more.

Here are some of the events to look forward to in September:
