Lynn University is a private, residential institution in Boca Raton, Florida, just three miles from one of the state’s many beaches. It has been ranked among the 25 most innovative colleges in the US.
Founded as a women’s liberal arts college in 1962, it is now coeducational. Until 1974, it was known as Marymount College. The College of Boca Raton then renamed itself Lynn University, in honour of the family which provided an integral part of its funding, when it gained university status in 1991. Students successfully campaigned and ran demonstrations to keep the college open in the early 1970s, when it was threatened with closure.
Boca Raton is 20 miles north of Fort Lauderdale, 25 miles south of Palm Beach, and 45 miles north of Miami, Florida’s most populous city. Its campus has five halls of residence, five freshwater lakes and several fountains.
Lynn’s undergraduate programmes range from event management to biology, aviation management and multimedia journalism, while master’s courses include entrepreneurial management and educational leadership. Its online programmes have received a number of accolades. Some students can also apply to accelerated degree courses. Those who take part in its 3.0 programme can save money and enter the job market after three years of study rather than four.
International students make up around a quarter of LU’s population, and the university has repeatedly been recognized as the southern institution with the highest proportion of international students on master’s courses. Lynn has had students from more than 90 different countries and runs study abroad programmes in more than 20.
Lynn’s sports teams have won a combined total of more than 20 national championships, and its American football stadium has a capacity of more than 29,000.
