Lincoln College Reviews
It is a small college with a lot of city kids so it was like I never left the city. There were more racist but besides that just like home. There are staff who cared about all students, staff who only cared about the students in their club, and staff that were there for a paycheck. The teachers for the most part were nice and were good teachers that cared, but there were a few old white racist teachers that the school did not care about. The security was cool but there were creeps and when reported the school takes you through many channels sot that you get lost among the paperwork. Just another white-run school praying on young black athletes and students from the hood with promises that they could not fulfill. There was not one black counselor/ health official which is odd considering the majority of the campus was black. Anyway it was ok.
I went on a college trip here and it was a nice experience. I have had some teachers that I have really enjoyed during my time here. I have also had a handful of teachers who weren't very good teachers. There have been a handful of classes that I've taken that I didn't enjoy or learn anything. A few of my teachers are very vague with their instructions and difficult to work with. The food is terrible, that isn't just my opinion most if not all students agree with me. However I have met some very wonderful people here whether it be other students or teachers. I have had good amount of fantastic teachers who are caring and great at their jobs. I've also made a decent amount of friends who have similar interests as me which is huge thing for a very shy person like me. I also really like the small campus and the friendliness of most people I've interacted with at Lincoln College.
