The journey of Academic Success is a challenging road. Though it may be difficult, it is possible through the support of students and staff alike. Lindenwood University is a school founded on the basis of Real Experience and Real Success. That is why it was no surprise when Dr. Robyn Elder and Dr. Lynda Leavitt developed the Cap It! podcast. The goal of the podcast is to establish communication with doctoral students about updates within Ed.D. program, as well as tips for success with their dissertations.
Lindenwood University is consistently making great strides in providing opportunities that prepare students for success, including having a dedicated team in The Career Services Office. Career Services operates out of the Library and Academic Resources Center (LARC) and provides support for students as they learn how to transition the knowledge they have gained here at LU into a successful, enjoyable career.

Inspired by wanting to better understand her oldest son, Michael, and his concentration “issue” that causes him anxiety, Dr. Krista Tucciarone, or Dr. “Tucc,” personally reached out to her own students at Lindenwood University about their own “issues" and how these issues might be causing them anxiety, too. After an “overwhelming number” of students relaying that they experienced plights similar to Michael, Dr. Tucc knew she had to delve deeper into the problem to “determine the degree anxiety affects college students.”
