Railsplitter 101: Introduction Webinars

Are you interested in learning more about our individual undergraduate schools?

At Lincoln Memorial University, we know that our current circumstances (i.e., a global pandemic) have impacted how students are able to research their college choices. We want to help! Our brand new Railsplitter 101 webinars are designed to introduce you to the undergraduate school that offers the major of your choice. During these webinars, you'll hear from the Vice President & Dean of Enrollment & Student Affairs as he interviews the Dean (or another senior administrator) from each school. Following that, our Recruitment & Student Success Coordinators and friendly Admissions staff will share a bit more about each school, introduce you to a faculty member from the school, and be available to answer any questions you might have.
