Spend It On The Vendors!

The season of homecoming brings along much excitement or ‘hype’ as students say. Easily the most highly anticipated occasion on campus, alongside Spring Fling, many look forward to the atmosphere of festivity with on-campus parties, events hosted by organizations, a yard show and a finale concert. However, above all of that, the most important thing would always be nutrition. Every year, without fail, visiting vendors erect their stalls in the designated areas, not only to sell books and LU regalia, but to also bless our taste buds with a variety of tasty and flavorful foods. The presence of food vendors usually places students in a tough position as they have a difficult time deciding whether they should buy vendors’ food or if they should save their money and eat from the cafeteria. ...

LU Fashion Trends

By Quinton Davis On Lincoln University’s campus,  there are a several up and coming clothing lines that have been making an impact; Hand Written Culture, Father Stretch My Bands, Rare and Soigné Y-Pree are a few clothing lines known for their unique styles.

It is loud but fashionable with a unique twist. It’s that time of the year where students at Lincoln University display their fashion sense.

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...

LU Goes To Oxford For Homecoming Parade

By Asia Cobbs On Oct 27 2012, Lincoln University had their annual Homecoming Parade in the town of Oxford, Pa., instead of on campus. The parade consisted of the Mr. and Ms. Lincoln, the Royal Court of Lincoln University, the Orange Crush Marching Band, the Fe-Lions cheerleaders and other organizations from Lincoln University. Also in the parade were marching bands and floats from schools near the town. The parade was scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Transportation was provided for students. Some students said they would have preferred if the parade was held on campus so students wouldn’t have to worry about catching the bus. “I’d rather not have to worry about a bus but be able to leave my room, go to the parade, and come to my room when I’m ready,” Evon Harris, senior, said.

The cheerleaders were dressed in all black, while the girls’ basketball team was placed to act as if they were Bowie’s family members. Holly Draper said, “At first, I t...

The New Miss Lincoln University

By Khadeem Hughson   Miss. Lincoln represented the university in the Black Alumni Hall of Fame Competition in Atlanta several weeks ago. For many there, she was simply one of the top 10 ranked Ms. HBCUs out 21 participants that competed in the pageant. But to Lincoln Lions, she may have looked a little bit differently than last you saw. Effective Aug. 30,  Alexis Morgan was elevated from the position of Miss. Legacy to Miss. Lincoln, a change and opportunity the ambitious senior relishes but was initially astonished by. “I was called into a conference with one faculty member and notified August 30th. I was in shock and complete disbelief!” Unfortunately for Morgan, she would have to shake off that feeling of awe, because her first order of business would be compe...
