Welcome to Lincoln University and the beginning of your college career on our beautiful campus. For most incoming students, this is a time of great change, challenge, and excitement. You will be assuming responsibility for decisions and actions that directly impact your personal and academic life. This is a time of transition during which we are dedicated to assisting you in achieving the best educational experience possible. We strive to facilitate your connection to educational and social opportunities in and out of the classroom.
You will have the camaraderie of sharing living experiences with other students, many of whom you might never meet anywhere else.
Sharing a common living space will give you insight into varied cultures and lifestyles, while enriching your future and stimulating your educational growth. Friendships formed in our residence halls often last a lifetime.
Living in a residence hall is a unique experience which provides an opportunity to meet people and explore new ideas and ways of relating to others. It is an important part of the educational process, in which students are encouraged to be involved in activities and programs, and to assume individual and community responsibility.
Professional and student staff members provide academic support, personal advisement, conflict resolution and programming. They also assist residents in developing a sense of community in which students can feel included and at home while in the residence halls at Lincoln University.
Numerous student leadership opportunities are available, including volunteer positions on committees, as well as paid positions working with residential staff. Lincoln strongly encourages students to be active, involved citizens in their residential communities.
We are excited to have you on campus and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions. Go Blue Tigers!
