Michelle Obama is the Epitome of a First Lady

Averri Glenn First Lady, Michelle Obama is leaving Melania Trump with big shoes to fill but an even bigger legacy to admire. When Barack Obama was first elected back in 2008, everyone wondered what type of first lady Michelle Obama would be, especially as the first African American woman to become the first lady of the United States. Would she be the stereotypical First Lady and invest her time in the décor or flower arrangements or would she do something more significant? There were a lot of questions about what exactly Michelle Obama would do. As you can imagine, being the First Lady to the President of the United States of America you are already under a microscope but being the first BLACK First Lady to the first BLACK President of the United States, there was a different type o...

I Got the Job, But I’m Not Allowed to Work

Taylor Murphy Many Lincoln University students have the ability to reap the benefits of work study, but are limited to the types of employment due to a university policy that denies student who have work study to be hired by any independent agent on campus (i.e. Thompson Hospitality).

Work study allows student to pay off outstanding balances. But that’s not the case for many at Lincoln University students. Being qualified doesn't always mean you get the ability to work and receive the benefits. Shannon Marshall, a senior at Lincoln University,...

Majority of his work in standup were in New York and L.A. and while most look back on their twenties and rave about the memories, Andre describes that part of his life as “full of depression and anxiety.” It wasn’t until he discovered transcendental meditation, which he now practices twice a day, that he gained mental stability and was able to propose his dream.

A Turnt Up Turn Out

Kendall Gilbert Recently I hosted my first event by myself as Mr. Lincoln called "Good Fits." The premise of the event was to show freshman males when, where, and how to wear different kinds of dress clothes. It was a fashion expo and a mixer at the same time. I had a runway of models consisting of other male leaders on campus and served pizza and other refreshments. “It was amazing! I wish more people showed up because it was so great!" - Lincoln University senior, Charles “Chuck” Strothers The event turned from just being a forum to something much bigger. When I opened up the floor for questions, the freshman that attended were craving for information. Our discussions about clothing turned into steps and plans to improve male leadership on campus and setting up the legacy Li...
