Welcome International Students


Let me welcome you to Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) located in Harrogate, Tennessee. With thousands of academic programs offered by universities and colleges across the country, the opportunity to receive an outstanding education has never been better for international students. So why LMU? This liberal arts and professional studies University offers a wide array of undergraduate programs with an average class size of 13 students. The University also offers graduate programs in business and other professional subjects. With its nationally recognized medical and veterinary schools, the University sits in a lovely rural area and offers a world class education to aspiring students. Working and living abroad as a diplomat for 26 years and retiring having served as an Ambassador to three countries, I met with hundreds of prospective students planning to study in the U.S. My message to them was always to find a way in their studies to get out of the big cities, travel, and meet as broad a cross section of Americans as possible to better understand our country. As a Lincoln Memorial University student you'll have the opportunity to form friendships with people you might never encounter otherwise and learn more first-hand about our country's history and values. And in the process you'll receive an outstanding education that you and your families will value for years to come.
