A Turnt Up Turn Out

Kendall Gilbert Recently I hosted my first event by myself as Mr. Lincoln called "Good Fits." The premise of the event was to show freshman males when, where, and how to wear different kinds of dress clothes. It was a fashion expo and a mixer at the same time. I had a runway of models consisting of other male leaders on campus and served pizza and other refreshments. “It was amazing! I wish more people showed up because it was so great!" - Lincoln University senior, Charles “Chuck” Strothers The event turned from just being a forum to something much bigger. When I opened up the floor for questions, the freshman that attended were craving for information. Our discussions about clothing turned into steps and plans to improve male leadership on campus and setting up the legacy Li...

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...

Editor of The Lincolnian Pens Letter to Michael Brown

The following letter is an excerpt from The Lincolnian's editor, Nicole Webb's, journalism blog entitled Testaments of a Journalism Major. Webb is a graduating senior at The Lincoln University, double majoring in Broadcast and Print Journalism. You can view this letter and her other posts by visiting testamentsofajournalismmajor.blogspot.com. Dear Michael, You don't know me and I quite frankly cannot say that I know of who you are outside of these recent headlines. From what I've read you were a "gentle giant;" you had just graduated from high school and just like so many of our young Black men, you had the world ahead of you...until the stray of a bullet fatally took that future away.  Michael, I cannot say that I understand what it feels like to be a Black man in...

Lincoln Students Have Differing Opinions on Gay Marriage

By Timothy Alston, Lorel Durant and Kita Williams Students at Lincoln University have mixed feelings about gay marriage, a topic that has been debated across the nation recently. The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments last week in two cases involving gay marriage, one involving California’s ban on gay marriage called Proposition 8 and the other involving the Federal Defense of Marriage Act. The court is expected to issue rulings in both cases this summer. Recent polls show growing acceptance of gay marriage by the public. A poll in December by USA Today showed 53 percent support gay marriage, up from 40 percent in 2009. More recently, a poll by The Washington Post and ABC showed 58 percent support for gay marriage. A Pew Research Center survey showed that support climbs to...

Are Pageants Even Necessary?

By: Alyson Robinson    The main light abruptly goes out, and welcomes the presence of one circular beam of colored light that provides a subtle view of the shiny wooden stage of the International Cultural Center. A womanly figure in a long, beautiful dress appears into the spotlight and introduces herself as the person the crowd wants for their next queen. Pageants are a staple of the general society and it is no different on our beloved campus. For many years, Lincoln University has seen an array of pageants. Greeks and other organizations put on pageants that serve as fundraisers, advertisement, and the general hype factors, aside from parties. This therefore benefits the organizers, but it can still be questioned if pageants benefit the participants. “I feel pageants are good b...
