Weekends are lonely and boring when you friends go home or you do not have a vehicle.
Every college has its highs and lows. Lincoln is an HBCU that can be very welcoming. The faculty does try to make everyone feel at home. Although, it is a very old campus so housing is not the best. I wouldn't say Lincoln is an amazing campus but it's not horrible. Honestly, the main things at this school are the Greek organizations and sports.
I think Lincoln University is a very diverse college, that also promotes study skills
I love it here. My overall experience was a plus. College is what you make it. Don't transfer in the spring!!!!!

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself that balancing school work is very important. Being able to differentiate social life with academic life is a very important aspect of college. Even though I have been doing very well in college, I would have made better decisions such as studying longer and choosing my friends wisely. I would tell myself not to be afraid to ask questions. In order to get what you want in life, you have to be proactive and dedicated to your learning experience. I would say choose your friends wisely because everyone does not want to see you succeed. A saying that I find important and that would have been helpful before my college experience would be "Don't deposit valuable information to negative people because you will always wind up with a bounced check". This means that negative people will not always support your goals or support you as a person. I would not have known this if it was not for experience. I would tell myself to appreciate where you come from because everyone is not allowed this great opportunity.
The classes are very small. In order to have fun you must be active on your campus. You don't need to live in a city to have fun.
Lincoln University is agreat institution that strives for excellence,though its a fairly small school it has a big heart and we are full of pride.
the school work and the extra activites
Before I came to this school, I wish i wouldve known that going to a small school means everyone's business is known by everyone and it's better to engage in a small group of friends and also know how to be focused on my responsibilities by being able to balance my academics and social life at the same time. Finally, college brings many experieces that would prepare me for life.
I think the worst thing about my school is that a lot of the student are unaware of the potential that they have. A lot the students are lazy and not focused on the right or important things. The main reason we are in school is for an education and it should not be taken lightly.
The atmosphere at the school is amazing and it is very relaxing environment.
My classmates are profound and willing to assist a colleague in need.
Academics and the Concert Choir that i am apart of
Upper classmen are left on there own, with no assistance to find money to stay in school.
Any person who is going to attend my school should be aware that it is an HBCU. Most people that would attend my school would be African American or a minority. A lot of alumni children attend my school as well.
A person who is used to being around or meeting diverse people.
The stereotypical view of students at my school are mixed. There is no one type of student when Lincoln University is mentioned, but our school does have a reputation for Greek life so that would be one stereotype that there are many Greeks. The stereotypes are accurate however there are many organizations on our campus that get people popular on campus, but like many the most famous is being a part of a Fraternity.
The popular group activities at our school are surprisingly not the sports. The most popular would be the Greeks, models, music groups. I met my closest friends through us all being freshman and realizing we needed to stick together to make a name for ourselves on campus.
The best thing about Lincoln University is that it is a small school so the relationships that a student gains with their teacher is personal, therefore no matter what goes on the educational department is very hands on and makes it easier to get a better understanding.
What I would change about the school is maybe the requirements to get in. Although our school may not be Ivy league it should not be treated as any less and not just anyone should be allowed to get in.
Lincoln University can sometimes seem to small but with the renovations at the school it should make the school seem more spacious so at this point I would consider it too small but progressing to get bigger.
Whenever I tell people I go here they first ask me where is it at, but once I explain it they all say oh the school that Vanessa went to on the Cosby show.
I spend most of my time between our gym and our new library.
What college town our school is in the middle of no where.
The school's administration is not the worse but their not the best either a few adjustments are being made at the moment seeing as how we officially have a new president.
The biggest recent controversy on our campus was in early November this year the death of one our students..three students were in a brutal car accident leaving one dead, one in critical condition, and another injured. Things have gotten better since then though.
The school did not have much pride when I got there but since being here for a year and joining different organizations you see the pride a lot more.
There are many experiences I have at this school to just narrow down one.
The most frequent complaints at our school has been the food and the heat.
Being that Lincoln University is not a huge school a lot of the experiences that you have with professors are very personal. Majority of time professors will remember your name if you are showing up to class. There will be your share of students who do compete with each other for the highest grades in hopes to have the higher GPA. A lot of times class participation depends on the teacher's teaching methods. If the teacher is interesting or has a exciting way of teaching then there maybe a high amount of participation where as teachers who just read and lecture in a monotone voice its very likely participation will be low. In my major of Mass Communications everything is very hands on meaning you will get to interact with your professor. Most of what you will learn will teach you things about your major but it's mainly preparing you for both the real world and the career you get into.
