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.

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...

Under The Bus: World Refugee Day

My travel to Europe was eye-opening in many ways. I learned about new cultures, peoples, history, language and I uncovered a lot about my own character. However, the most striking aspect of my travel pertained to human rights and how much improvement our global society must still undergo. In the third month of my semester abroad, I had the opportunity to travel to Morocco, which is just south of the Spanish border, for a weekend. I was most excited about this trip long before I was even fully prepared to go to Europe. I have seen the glamour on social media; beautiful apparel, golden, sandy beaches which are tread by remarkably tall camels. My first day there, I got that typical experience where I rode camels and took pictures and I was pretty satisfied.                 ...

At Lincoln University of Pennsylvania, though a relatively small institution, there are countless opportunities to travel abroad to pursue college courses.
