School Notes:

The college is a selective co-ed two-year, private, liberal arts college, accredited by the North Central Association designed to prepare a student for university study through a structured, supportive approach to learning. The college includes 60-acre wooded campus with complete academic, artistic, and athletic facilities. Lincoln College was established in 1865 to fill the need for an institution of higher learning in central Illinois. Commissioners investigated several sites, and in December, 1864, selected Lincoln, Illinois. On February 6, 1865, a charter for the new university was secured from the Illinois General Assembly. Ground was broken for University Hall, the first college building, just six days later on Abraham Lincoln's birthday. Lincoln College provides a full measure of personal support. This is an intentionally small institution because we strive to give each student substantial individual attention. Our class sizes are small and each year we are delighted to observe students, faculty members, and support staff coming together as an academic family. There are a number of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities available to students on both campuses and, because of our small size, we are able to offer many educational enrichment opportunities. Lincoln College at Lincoln is a two-year residential campus offering a liberal arts foundation as well as athletic and fine arts programs. Lincoln College at Normal also offers associate degree programs as well as four-year programs and a cosmetology school. Both central Illinois campuses provide low student to faculty ratios and complete supportive services.
