Lincoln University is a great school for Nursing, Business, or even Science. Lincoln gives you a chance to be tutored by providing the Writing Center, Math Lab, Study Hall and also giving you resources from the newly renovated Langston Hughes Memorial Library. Lincoln, being the first-degree granting HBCU, has taught me a lot of history about the most famous alumni's before us and how they paved the way. The change I would like to see is the campus food, school pride, and sports. Campus food is terrible for lunch and dinner and although there is a variety of foods available, the food doesn't look very appetizing. We want Lincoln to hear our responses and take into consideration since we the students invest our money and time into Lincoln. Unfortunately at games, there are many students as well as parents that don't get involved interacting. Lincoln has been the underdogs and needs better players that have great agility, momentum, and leadership for us to be able to win the game.
Review Your College
In order for you to enjoy your college experience attending Lincoln University you must get involved and work with the students untied to improve the college overall. However, for those who aren't quite involved in social groups or activities you would dread attending Lincoln. The food is ok for your first semester but you will hate it after that. The classroom settings are great for those who need a more one-on-one learning experience. The professors are in short supply and would most likely end up your advisor. The dorms are terrible unless you live in apartment style living or Rendall Hall but the dorms overall are old and priced differently which they fail to mention to the students. The staff overall is short staffed and no one seems to give you a straight answer for anything. Also everything cost money so make sure you bring extra money for activities, parties, books, trips, and groceries because the food is gross.
The Lincoln University, the FIRST DEGREE GRANTING HBCU is more like my mom away from home rather than the word "college". When I think of the word college I think of a place where you just go to get an education and go to your dorm room and do homework. My university is so much different from the endless events, excellent organizations, and excellent tutoring services, you will never be bored at Lincoln. Always remember to stay on top of your school work though! events never go past 9pm, so if you still need that extra hour or 2 to study for an exam you have that ability without having to pull an all nighter.
