The 2012-2013 school year at Lynn University is the most exciting and eventful year to date in our history. After all, we kicked it off with a history making event: the third and final presidential debate. We're calling it Lynn's Big Year, and whether you're a student, faculty or staff member, alumni or friend of the university, we hope you'll join us in celebrating our rich history and our promising future as we mark 50 years as an institution of higher learning. 

Our History: 50 Years Young

Lynn University has come a long way from our start as an all-women's college issuing 2-year degrees to become one of the most international universities in the nation. We've been known by 3 names along the way, but our goals and our mission have never wavered.
