What’s your style?

What’s your style?
Style is personal. It reflects who you are, where you come from, and what you believe in. 

At Lynn you’ll mix with one of the most international student bodies in the country. U.S.News & World Report has consistently ranked Lynn first among schools our size for the number of international students. (Students from almost 100 countries call Lynn University “home.”)

As you can imagine, that means our campus is a showcase for individual style: from intellectual to athletic, musical to political, high fashion to high tech.

As for the University itself, the Lynn style is decidedly innovative—not to mention goal oriented, entrepreneurial, and deeply engaged. But our style is beside the point. We’re here to help you discover your own.

Everyone has a learning style
Learning style is as individual as anything else. That’s why we make it our mission to customize every student’s education. We tailor your education to your interests and abilities. Individual faculty members are trained in adapting their teaching style to a variety of learning styles.

Lynn’s accelerated bachelor’s degree program allows a select number of students to fast-forward their degree and complete it in just three years—saving over $46,500 in the process and getting a jump start on graduate school or the job market. The Institute for Achievement and Learning is also nationally known for its success in teaching students who learn differently.

And Lynn is only the second school in the nation to introduce a whole new style of teaching and learning using tablet technology. You’ll get an iPad preloaded with your core curriculum textbooks, saving you hundreds of dollars on books and taking advantage of an innovative learning style. This isn’t mass market—it’s a boutique education.

Our social style? Energetic
You can’t beat our tropical South Florida location. We’re midway between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach and just a short drive from Miami. We’re accessible to three international airports and two seaports. Beaches, parks, and some of Florida’s best golf courses are within easy reach of campus.

Student involvement keeps the calendar packed with activities such as fitness field trips, pro sports games, trips to Universal and Disney, and even Snow Day. There are also tons of student organizations and service opportunities, like Students For The Poor and Relay For Life. Plus Lynn has an active club and intramural sports scene.

A conversation for the ages
Almost every college has a “core.” That used to mean classes like algebra and English 101, but times (andstyles) have changed.

There’s nothing dull about The Dialogues, our core curriculum. The Dialogues span 20 seminars and cover five themes: Self and Society, Belief and Reason, Justice and Civic Life, Scientific Literacy, and Quantitative Reasoning. Each class encourages you to explore traditional topics in thoroughly non-traditional ways.

Instead of statistics, for example, you might take “The Games They Play” and study logarithmic modeling through the lens of sports culture. You might delve into global women’s issues “From Eve to Evita” or study history by tracing the path of modern managerial capitalism.

The common thread? Conversation: the age-old back and forth between people in an attempt to ask (and answer) some of life’s biggest questions.
Because at the end of the day, a college education is about more than memorization. It’s about reasoning and communication—learning to think your way around every obstacle.

Global citizenship is second nature
At Lynn global citizenship just comes naturally. Because 24% of our students come from somewhere other than the United States, we are uniquely positioned to create a college experiencethat reflects the real world, not just
our corner of South Florida.

In any given class, you’re likely to be sitting with students who represent three or four nationalities.

Our core curriculum will challenge you to think across continents and cultures, and more than 50 study abroad programs provide an international experience directly related to your major.

Experiences of a lifetime
Learning at Lynn begins in the classroom. From there, it can take you almost anywhere. During January term, we push the limits of academic experience. Studying multimedia design? If you’re a Lynn student, you can learn from the masters—in Japan.

Or if you’re an education major, you might spend January finding out what it’s really like to be a teacher, from planning classes to dismissal, after-school meetings, and more. You could also follow a more service-driven path and embark on journeys around the country or around the globe, working with organizations like Habitat for Humanity.

First-year students kick off their January term experience at Lynn with The Citizenship Project. You’ll take a course that focuses on a civic topic or issue, then partner with a local organization to work toward a solution.

Rub shoulders with corporate titans
In a highly competitive job market, knowledge is only half the equation.You also need experience—and connections.

At Lynn we make sure you have plenty of both. Our CEO Speaker Series brings some of South Florida’s most powerful business leaders to campus on a regular basis.

Every academic department has an internship coordinator who works tirelessly to cultivate relationships locally, nationally, and globally. And when you’re close to graduation, our career center can help you craft your résumé, polish your interview style, and tap into hundreds of employment resources. All with great results: you’ll find Lynn alums at Apple, BMW, Dow Jones, and MTV Latin America (among other places).

Think way outside the box—start here
Lots of things about college are challenging. The admission process shouldn’t be one of them. At Lynn we make it easy. You can apply online using the Lynn Application, Common Application, or Universal College Application.

Before you start thinking about applying, though, you really should visit us. At Lynn the campus visit experience is as personalized as anything else. You won’t just take a tour; you’ll sit down with the dean or a faculty member from the college you’re interested in.

If you’re a good fit for this university, we’ll do everything we can to help you get here. We’re a positive investment in your future.
