LU African Students Association: The Relevance Of A Regional Organization

By: Constance Ebienfa When students attend college in a foreign location; a home affiliated association is always necessary, whether regional, national or as specific as it can be. Lincoln University has been no stranger to this tradition. Over the years, the university has been home to associations like the Caribbean students association, African students association, the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia) association and more. While some of these associations have lasted since they were founded, others have existed multiple times independent of the previous. The African Student Association (ASA) is a new regional organization that was started in the fall of 2016 and is still growing. While this is not the first ASA that has existed on the LU campus, all the vario...

The 6th Man Has Spirit, What About You?

By: Tasha Saint-Louis If you have attended any recent sports events on Lincoln’s campus, you’ll notice that there is a new dynamic to the student section.

Per the organization’s adviser, Tiffani Brown, “The 6th Man is [essentially] a spirit campaign designed to shift the overall culture here at Lincoln.” The organization’s president Kenneth Faulcon, knew that the organization’s introduction to the campus would work best during basketball se...

Lessons the Championships Taught Us

  Mar'Quell Fripp The outcome of three out of the four major American professional sports championships showed the nation the importance of being patient through life endeavors. Patience is a virtue that very few have. Numerous teams this year have shown us that even professionals have a hard time practicing patience during their careers while working towards their personal and professional goals. LeBron James and the city of Cleveland showed the hardships of balancing patience and actively striving for your goals in their devastating loss at their first championship appearance in 2007. The 2015 NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors marked the final year of a 62 year championship drought for the city of Cleveland. The Cleveland Cavaliers would come back the next...

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 is a part time employment based off of fianacial need. Usually, if a student is eligible for work study they work in offices and departments on campus, giving the student the opportunity to receive an allotted amount of money. 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,...

The Eric Andre Show: Destroys black stereotypes in the media

Taysar Edwards After years of struggling, Eric Andre, the sociopathic television talk host, finds his niche. Eric Andre, who is now 33, struggled for years as a stand up comedian in his twenties. 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. Shortly after he filming the pilot for a show, it got picked up by Adult Swim and become the Eric Andre show in 2009. The show is now in its fourth season on Adult Swim. The main focus of the show is a “disinterested, sociopathic ...

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...

It’s Coronation Season!

By Kendall Gilbert It is homecoming season for many colleges and universities. As a result, of that most weeks start off with a wondrous event called coronation. Coronation is the crowning ceremony of the campus’ King and Queen. Every coronation is different. Some people fly from the ceiling, while others come in on white horses and the rest just get a sparkling, gem encrusted crown. With having the pleasure to serve as Mister Lincoln University for Lincoln University of PA, I have gotten to go to many coronations, and even had one of my own. My coronation was spectacular! We had performers dance, sing and even sign on the stage. Every campus organization had their king and queen grace the stage. Our family and friends came from Georgia, North Carolina, New York, New Jersey, Wash...
