Fielding athletic teams known as Lindenwood Lions, the university is in the process of transitioning athletics from the NAIA and member of the Heart of America Conference to NCAA Division II.

Lindenwood also sponsors a wide variety of sports not sponsored by the NCAA that compete in various other sport governing bodies and conferences. The Lindenwood athletic program is known for its success in roller hockey, men's and women's ice hockey, wrestling, and shooting sports. The football and basketball teams have also had recent successes in NAIA postseason play. The LU official school and athletic colors are black and gold.

The majority of Lindenwood's students are from Missouri, with out-of-state and foreign students accounting for 30% of undergraduate enrollment. The university offers a number of extracurricular activities to its students, including athletics, honor societies, clubs and student organizations, as well as fraternities and sororities. Alumni and former students have gone on to prominent careers in government, business, science, medicine, education, sports, and entertainment.
