SACNAS REACHES LU CAMPUS

by Jamila Jacob   One of the greatest elements of college and campus life is the opportunity for holistic student development within all programs and fields across an institution. This academic year, the Lincoln University campus has seen the formation of a new organization, the SACNAS chapter. The chapter, whose acronym stands for Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS), has been introduced to the campus to give underrepresented STEM students the chance to maximize their college careers through various activities.    These include leadership programs, and the annual National Diversity in STEM Conference. In fact, it was through this conference in October of 2017, that Lincoln STEM student Bria Garcia was encoura...

Study Abroad: Attaining a wider perspective

by Jamila Jacob   The ability to travel, both domestically and internationally, is one of the greatest privileges a human could have. Traveling, especially internationally is one of the most sought after and costliest leisure activities to exist. A great benefit to attending college, apart from having access to higher education, is having study abroad opportunities at one’s disposal. In fact, many students’ first travel experience might have been through a study abroad program at their institution. At Lincoln University of Pennsylvania, though a relatively small institution, there are countless opportunities to travel abroad to pursue college courses. Students have been to a variety of continents where they have visited countries like South Africa, Kenya, Spain, China, Ir...

Black History Month: Making your own story.

  It has been about a week since the month of February has begun. The first day of the month was not treated like any ordinary day by many. While the morning air on LU’s campus was visibly freezing, the souls of our colleagues were filled with warmth. From brightly colored dashikis, to afro hair in bloom like on a fresh day of spring, the campus community oozed with pride and vibrant energy: Black History Month! However, that excitement has seemed to wane a bit. The semester is rolling by and workloads seem to weigh a lot more than they did merely two weeks ago. All the same, we need to retain the same energy we had on the first day of February. While 28 days are not enough to recognize our achievements, each celebrated element of black history should serve to inspire our pur...

Who Rocks the Mic?

Marvin Gregg   It seems like the hot topic old school vs. New school Hip Hop has come back to the surface. For the past couple of months various old school hip-hop artists have given their intake on the new artist of hip-hop both negative and positive. However one comment stuck with everyone for a while and even created what I guess you can say a “genre”; Mumble Rap. Mumble rap is when a rapper makes music with lyrics very difficult to understand. Others like to call mumble rap when rappers mumble incoherent absolute garbage for an entire song. Whatever they like to call it our generation seems to love it. Artist that fit into that category are Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, Young Dolph and the list continues. Debates like this always seem to emerge onto the surf...
