A Campus in Crisis: Let’s Talk About Mental Health

By Takyah Rivers Across the campus and throughout the entire student body, there has been a distinctive lackadaisical energy, and even professors are starting to notice. This is not just a case of “senioritis." From students who excel academically to those who struggle are finding it hard to find their motivation. A great number of students are currently experiencing burnout midway through the semester. Usually when student burnout occurs it is because of outstandingly high physical, mental, and or emotional demands. It is common for this to appear during the end of the semester when finals are coming up. The issue is this has been happening for the majority of the semester. The leading factors besides the regular going to classes and completing assignments could be COV...

Educational Rights For Lincoln Students

A statement in September fromUniversity President, Brenda Allen mandated faculty, staff and students to be vaccinated by thestart of the new year. Many students a...

Mold Infestation In Apartment Style Living Residence Hall

By: Nina Clinton In early September more and more people who live in the Apartment Style Living often referred to as “The New” started noticing the infestation of mold in the ceiling and air vents. As more residents started to look in their vents more people started to see mold.  Within buildings, multiple group chats raised the concern about the mold, and seeing as how Community Advisors couldn’t do much they just directed all students to physical plant. Some rooms were worse than others but almost every single room in the building had mold.  Brian Dubenion who is the Dean of Students entered the residence hall group chats to ensure all the residents that the matter is being taken seriously and that it would be handled. An outside company, Serve Pro, contracted by Linc...

Why Do Students Not Want to be Bothered by Public Safety

Aisja Cunningham LINCOLN UNIVERSITY- Public Safety is present to ensure the safety and protection of Lincoln University’s campus. However, black students do not view police officers in general as their protectors; they view them as someone who harasses and criminalizes them. According to Lincoln University’s website, its main campus is patrolled by armed, sworn Police Officers commissioned by the Pennsylvania Municipal Police Officers Education & Training Commission. The Department of Public Safety provides services of prevention, detection, and investigation of criminal and non-criminal incidents. As a historically black institution, we must acknowledge the social justice issue that black millennials have with police presence as it relates to our university. Due to thei...

Addressing the LINCOLN EXPERIENCE AND WHAT IT MEANS TO “GET WHAT YOU PUT IN” TO YOUR TIME AT LU by Nia A. Lassiter “I was 21, and I told my mom I’m going to DC for grad-school… I was told they were recruiting, I took a chance on myself… I interviewed, they hired me.”  – Nicole E. Webb ‘15   Many students begin to question the value of a Lincoln experience when they choose to listen to subjective ideas such as, “The Lincoln University does not put individuals in a position to thrive” or “going to an HBCU does not prepare you for the real world.” Ladies, and gentlemen, these are alternative facts; you get what you put in!        Living proof of pouring into your HBCU experience is Nicole E.
