The Lincoln University Making Strides in Completing The 2013-2018 Strategic Plan

By: Asia A. Black The Lincoln University’s 2013-2018 strategic plan is making decent progress. The 2013-2018 strategic plan is sets a direction for the university to go within the next five years. The plan focuses on five goals (which is more realistic compared to the previous strategic plan’s 13 goals) to improve The Lincoln University in every way possible. This strategic plan was built over an intense planning process. “It is unlike any process that has probably ever been used by any institution except those where I have served,” said Robert Jennings, The Lincoln University President. 56 managers were carried away for a two-day retreat where those individuals talked about who Lincoln University is as an institution that they would like to be, and why.

Introducing The Students First Campaign

By: Alexandra E. Rainey The Lincoln University has created a movement called the “Students First Campaign.” “The Student’s First Campaign” was set in place to create funds for The Lincoln University to be able to provide prospective and current students with endowed scholarships, whether it be merit based or based on financial need of the students.

The goal is to make over $10 million dollars in proceeds so that scholarship money can be granted to various students in the next academic years. President Robert R. Jennings came up with the idea.

Juicy J’s performance a hit—just too late and too short

By Andreas Roberts, Briana McKellery and Amanda Fields The Lincolnian The performance by rapper Juicy J on Saturday night excited fans and left them wanting more—much more. The concert, capping off a full week of Homecoming activities, was scheduled to start at 11:30 p.m. in the main gym of Manuel Rivero Hall but didn’t begin until about 12:15 a.m. Once it did, some students said it was too short. [polldaddy poll=7517530] Accompanied by only a DJ, Juicy J performed “Bandz Will Make Her Dance,” “Bounce It,” “Clappers,” and the 3-6 Mafia song “Stay High.” He was a real crowd-pleaser, sitting on the edge of the stage and reaching out to the fans to shake their hands. At one point, he stood in the front part of the crowd on the floor among the fans, driving them wild. Backstage be...

Tailgaters party at Homecoming game

By Andreas Roberts The Lincolnian Before and after the Lions took the field, the parking lot of the The Lincoln University’s new football stadium was the place for alumni, family and friends to be Saturday. It was a perfect day for tailgating. Nose-grabbing aromas filled the lot as fans popped open their trunks, share food and discussed old times. Smiles and laughter surrounded the parking lot as old friends reminisce on the times spent here. “It feels like just yesterday we were practicing in ditches, and now we have our own stadium,” said former player and track star Matthew Coston. “Feels good to see the outcome of hard work.” One of the biggest topics was how much the university has changed. Many alumni haven’t been back to the campus in years and are amazed at it...
