Freshmen: The Change In Advancement

By Cedric Sealy This fall 2017 semester proves to be a season of major population growth for Lincoln University. Currently, there are almost 700 newly enrolled 'Lincolnians' walking around our campus since August. This new addition of fresh faces has brought Lincoln's total enrollment figure to nearly 2,400 students. The change in the campus population has also changed the status quo of the campus. Freshmen are now able to live in dorms which were traditionally for upperclassmen, causing Juniors and Seniors to now reside in the Studio Green housing complex in order to accommodate all the students. Fortunately, many freshmen expressed that they had an easy transition into Lincoln’s campus. “My transition went well. I met a lot of people within my first week,” Alexis Naranjo, one of th...

Extra Extra Read All About It

As students we always like to say “our voices aren’t heard” or “our opinions don’t matter”. However what if that’s not the case. What if there actually was a way but yet often seems to go unnoticed? A printed publication consisting of folded unstapled sheets containing news, articles, advertisements and correspondence, or in other words, the newspaper is something that students would never give the time of day. I believe students don’t pay much attention to the student newspapers because they don’t know the importance/value of the paper. Student newspapers often become unsuccessful because budget cuts/funding and even the lack of students reading it. In today’s world many students prefer to read something off of an app on their phone rather than actually reading a psychical copy. Fro...

​​Defeating All Odds Through Basketball 

​​Defeating All Odds Through Basketball Derrick Washington 06/15/2017 Coming from the gritty streets of Washington, DC, your 18th birthday is a blessing. Two kids, a world of trouble awaiting, I decided to take advantage of an opportunity. Coach John Hill, then Lincoln University’s Head Men’s Basketball Coach give me an offer to attend Lincoln University. Taking advantage of this opportunity was all in good faith to set a better example for my children and other kids in my community that looked up to me. The process of getting back into school was frustrating; admissions was the first hurdle I had to jump over upon my return. With a  late enrollment, not having enough transferable credits, and eventually money problems, I was ready to give up and go back home. However, the one ...

“Agricultural Makeup:” An Opinon Piece on Mass Comm Week

By Rashard Roles Mass Comm Week was extremely interesting. Even before it started I could tell it would be unlike any other Mass Comm Week that Lincoln has had, due to the way it was promoted and how serious teachers and faculty members where treating it. I have never been to anything at Lincoln where food and beverages were provided at every event for the week, so that alone just let students know that faculty really wanted us to come out—a way to a college students heart is food. Now I am not a Mass Comm Major, so I am sure that I didn’t have the same experience as everyone else, but I still enjoyed myself. One of my favorite events was when graduates from the Mass Comm Department came to Lincoln and spoke to us. I think that’s always good to see people that were in our shoes not too l...

The week of March 20th through March 24th, the Mass Communication Department held its fourth annual Mass Communications week featuring a slew of guests speakers and workshops aimed and giving students an insight into the world of television, news, radio and entertainment. With an alumni panel, visit to iHeartRadio, and visits from some of the industry's finest, some students submitted what their favorite part of the week's events were and what they learned from it: "One event that really stuck out to me personally was the alumni panel. The panel was made up of Lincoln alum, mainly between the ages of 23-25. That’s one thing that particularly drew me in and made this event a “Must Go” for me...They were all in a age group that a younger crowd...could reach and relate to more effectivel...

Fences and Fathers

  By Marquis Butler The African American father and son dynamic in the film Fences has given me the opportunity to reflect on my relationship with my father. Fences is a story that set during the 50’s in Pittsburgh, Troy Maxson lives with his wife Rose and their son Cory. Throughout the film, Troy and Cory's relationship is tense. Failed attempts at reaching his dreams have left Troy bitter and unreceptive to the love from his family, especially his son.  When Cory gets the opportunity to receive a football scholarship to college Troy becomes over protective of his son, in the end his fears rob Cory of his dreams at playing professional football. Troy’s fear steams from his greatest disappointment, that he wasn’t able to transition from the Negro Leagues into Major ...
