Though I have only been in college for only one year, my experience as a college student at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri is quite eventful. I would like to talk about the faculty, the housing and the student life at Lincoln. I genuinely admire the faculty and the classes. The class sizes are small enough to where a student can feel comfortable asking questions and have one-on-one conversations with a professor. In addition, the office hours are spread throughout the afternoon, making it easy to conference with them.
As far as housing, it could use improvement. I stay in the honors dorm and even before moving in there was confusion. They switched not only my roommate, but my room as well after my roommate and I already compromised on what we were getting for the room. Additionally, everyone who applied to be in the honors dorm did not get to stay there even though there was room. Furthermore, the quality of the rooms is poor. My initial room had chipped paint on the walls and the air conditioner would leak onto the floor. My roommate and I also encountered a black substance on the windows and air vents that resulted in us having to promptly move to another room on another floor.
In regards to student life, when at the events thrown by the Campus Activity Board or other organizations, the unity among the students is apparent. Unfortunately, there are not many clubs or organizations to join. Greek life has the biggest presence on campus. It sometimes feels like the ONLY presence. Jefferson city is such a small town, there is not much nightlife or anything to do. Though there are a few parties on campus, there is a town nearby where a bigger public university is and that is where people go for a nice party or a simple Panda Express. Overall, I think Lincoln University has the potential to be a great school. All in all, I think the best part about Lincoln at this point would be the unity within the student body, not the school itself.
I think Lincoln University has its pros and cons just like any other college. Some pros being smaller class sizes, free on campus tutor, and lower tuition for an HBCU. Some cons being not a lot of activities for on campus students, unkempt maintenance of on campus housing.
I Love it it’s truly a home away from home!
it's a okay place it could improve. Like there should be way more things to do around here. Like sometimes it's fun but usually its boring. Its like if it isn't a party going on there isn't anything to do and even the parties get played out. Maybe if there was more things to do it be a better campus

If I could go back in time to talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself that I have great taste in friends. I would tell myself to make sure to sign up for classes early if possible and keep doing my work and strive for the best. I would also tell myself to look out for those who try to point you in the wrong direction in life and stay focused on the goal ahead and that is graduating with your degree so that you can get a decent job. Lastly, I would tell myself to make smart choices and listen to yourself and not others because no one knows you better than yourself.
The fact that only about 3200 students attend. I wish that more attended the University gain the same experiences I received.
I wish I knew more about the people who went to this university and what type of learning environment this campus has to give its students. Also it would have been great to have known what types of activities and clubs the school has to offer to make myself feel for secure and comfortable.
Everyone and anyone can come to this school and thrive, especially with the open enrollment policy. The only problem is the somewhat segragated atmosphere. Since the school is a HBCU, the Caucasian students seem a little more distant. You do not often see any Caucasians at any school sponsored social events.
The most frustrating thing is that there are a lot of people that go here that make it difficult for everyone else.
To me it's a great school i love the library and its also a bonus that there are a lot of hills to walk it keeps me in shape, I also love that the classes are just the right size.
My school is best known for being an HBCU, founded by the 62nd and 65th Colored Infantry. Lincoln has a rich hisory, full of success and honor, but unfortunately over the years its positive reputation has dwindled. The school itself isn't bad, it's just that the stigma it carries often times over shadows the real beauty my school beholds.
People thats want to have a lot of fun at the same time.
Most seem excited about their future.
The best thing about my school is the way the halls are set up. They dont have everyone on one hall and it is divided so only a certain amount of people are using a bathroom at a time.
Whats really unique about Lincoln University is that there is always an opportunity for students to get connected with things thats resourceful to their use. For example turoring is a big issue here, the classes are harder and so are the professors. The tutoring here at Lincoln helps students to be relieved and to know that they will pass that specific course. I have also taken tutoring, and it too has benefited me greatly to pass a class with a "B." Lincoln also offers same sex gender organizations, "LGBT." No one is left out to feel ashamed or embarrassed.
The thing i brag about the most is the great nursing program they have. Although they only accept a small amount of students per semester this school is well known for this program. In addition, i would brag about have great the dorms,classroom, and on campus activities. I will tell them how for each meal plan u receive money to be spent around campus. Also the visitation rules are very fair. Lastly i will tell them how much i love my HBCU and i wouldnt perfer being at any other college in the world, other than Lincoln University
