#207: Lindenwood University

And yet another university and educational institution. Here we go.

  • The 2nd oldest higher-education institution west of the Mississippi River.
  • Founded in 1827 by George Champlin Sibley and his wife, Mary Easton Sibley.
  • It is the fastest-growing university in the Midwest within the last 25 years.
  • Called Lindenwood because the land it was purchased on had several linden trees.
  • Originally a girls school (its name was The Lindenwood School For Girls), it became co-ed in 1969.

Spellman Hall
But the university has so much to offer. Some of my friends have attended classes here as well as graduated. The cake is located in front of Spellman Hall. The school's colors are black and gold, and they are well represented on this cake.

Top of the cake. If you look very close on the left side (white area), you'll see some graffiti (HOLA). Really? Must have been a student that watched too much Jersey Shore....
