I love it here. My overall experience was a plus. College is what you make it. Don't transfer in the spring!!!!!

Damani

In my opinion, I made an okay choice when I chose Lincoln. It's not the best but it's not the worst either. However, I do have somethings that I dislike about my university. Some of these things include, the limited food choices we have, how rural the campus is, and there is no way to get around unless you know someone who has a vehicle. Though these are some cons, we do have some pros, such as, class sizes are very small, professors are always willing to help, counseling services are very supportive, and our Public Safety Officers know how to do their jobs well.

Kianna

Needs Work!! Lots of it, overall not too bad but I feel you don’t get what you pay for. Food and dorms are something that’s important. Location is hard, because everything is far away. Campus life is not too bad. Always so something going on. Academics is not hard at all. Professors are not bad. Had ah bad bug situation.

JoMarae

The first HBCU Lincoln University is a great school especially for academics,our STEM program is exceptional. The campus has so many extracurricular activities that there is hardly ever a time where there isn’t anything to do. There are organizations for everyone you just have to find what fits you.At Lincoln from staff to undergrad and alumni we're all apart of a big family .Lincoln is a great place to start a business because everyone is super supportive.Our only downfall is that we are a bit secluded which makes it is a little hard to travel to the mall and movie cinemas. Lincoln University is a wonderful school to attend ,build life long relationships and future careers

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    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.

  14. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    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.

  16. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    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.

  17. What are the academics like at your school?

    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.
