Lincoln University is an educational institution and a home.Lincoln is enriching in culture that is of the entire African Diaspora, all while being welcoming and accepting of students from across the world.Lincoln has also created many opportunities for student involvement: Honors Societies, Student Government, Strategic Planning Committees, and more. Lincoln also strongly encourages studying abroad for every major.Yearly, various opportunities to take education past the boarders of America arise with many modes of financial assistance.I absolutely love Lincoln and hope to continue the legacy that my mother has started- graduating as a Lincoln Lion!

So far, my experience with Lincoln University has been amazing. I consider this prestigious institute as my dream college because, I have been dreaming to go here since forever! Other than the school being in the middle of nowhere, there's really nothing I can complain about. I'm able to major and minor in things that I am genuinely interested in. I've alway been interested in getting careers in the human service and mass communications field so I have chosen those as my major/minor. Also, I love the history of this school. Lincoln University is the first degree granting Historically Black College/University (HBCU) and in my opinion, for them us to be the first, I see it as us setting a standard and paving the way for other HBCUs.
I love my Orange and Blue! Lincoln University is thee first degree granting HBCU in the country, with a large and beautiful campus. I couldn't be more proud to receive my education from such a historically-rich and excellent university. I learned a lot about myself at Lincoln University and had a fun experience while doing it. Every year of undergrad was completely worth it and this school gave me the networking connections I needed to continue to advance in the world. Also, still to this day, Lincoln University has the best sunsets I've ever seen in my life.
