Welcome to your new school!

On behalf of the Lincoln College of New England (LCNE) family, it is my pleasure to welcome you to your school.  We are honored, and excited, that you have chosen to pursue your education and lay the foundation for your future here in Southington, Connecticut.  Over time, you will come to think of this campus as home.

For more than 50 years, LCNE has been a valued part of New England’s educational landscape.  Founded in 1966 as Briarwood College, today the college has grown to include program offerings geared towards career success in fields like dental hygiene, criminal justice, funeral services/mortuary science and more that are growing across our region.  We continuously assess the needs of the communities we serve, and we focus on each individual student who entrusts us with their education.

At LCNE, our goal is to help you graduate as a career-ready candidate ready to pursue exciting positions in rewarding, fulfilling fields.  Along the way, you will never feel like just another face in a lecture hall – you will be personally supported each step of the way, because we truly believe our students today will build a better future for tomorrow.

We hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to tour this thirty-three acre campus and dorms. Get to know our faculty and staff – they are ready and willing to help!  Meet LCNE students who can share their experience of continuing their education at New England’s best-kept academic secret.  Prepare to begin an incredible journey at LCNE – your journey to a better future with a degree or certificate that opens the door to an amazing career.
