Welcome to Lincoln Christian University
Life at LCU
August 17-August 24
We are excited to welcome you to Lincoln Christian University! Everything we have planned over the next week is to help support each new student as they transition to LCU. We hope you find the week to be encouraging, challenging, informative, and fun. Here’s the important stuff you need to know:
Saturday, August 17, 2019
Check In/Move In 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Every new student arriving on campus will check in at Restoration Hall and pick up a check in card. This check in card is your ticket into the dorms! Our team will confirm that you have finalized all the necessary forms and provide an opportunity to finish up any last minute business. Once you have a completed check in card, you will be directed to the dorms to unload. Please take the check in card to the Resident Hall Director to get your room assignment and key. We will have a great crew of faculty and staff at each dorm to help you move in.
Student/Parent Meeting 3:30 p.m.
Students and parents are invited to a joint meeting in the Chapel to discuss the weekend and Life at LCU schedule and to answer any last minute questions.
Family Dinner/Errands/Goodbyes 4:30 p.m.
We encourage parents to take their children to run any last minute errands to Walmart and then to dinner somewhere in Lincoln. This should allow everyone enough time to share a meal and say their final goodbyes.
If you have moved in on your own, please see Jill Dicken, Dean of Student Services, and she will help make arrangements for dinner.
Social Activity 8:00 p.m.
We’ll close the evening with a fun social event put on by our Student Cabinet members!
