Laney and McCauley Residents at Community Service at Pennypack Farm , Horsham, PA

Welcome new students and welcome back returning students! Last summer was quite eventful with the inaugural Summer Bridge program in both Ashmun and McRary halls. Several upgrades were made to the halls such as: updated bathrooms in McCauley; Amos Soffit was repaired; new beds in Thurgood Marshall Living Learning Center South; Ashmun Lobby renovation. This semester we are looking forward to providing quality programming that helps to further expand and develop you holistically. –John Lowney, Director of Residence Life

Organization Spotlight Boys 2 Men “As black men, we need to step up socially, financially, and academically. There are a multitude of problems on our campus, as well as in our communities because of men who could essentially be role models, and advocates, but don’t answer the call. Black men, have become both the solution and the problem. The solution is in us to have the ability to empower, influence, and lead. As upper classmen, it is our responsibility to develop young men. Their development starts from knowing the importance of Lincoln's history, exemplifying pride, taking responsibilities as a man, and understanding your role as a black man with in your community. As men advancing Lincoln University’s Legacy we need to bring back the old Lincoln spirit and efforts of what it means to be a LINCOLN MAN!!!” - Co-founder and Visionary, Micah Wilson

Queens Living Through Legacy “Queens Living Through Legacy stands big on scholarship and effort; However, we do not feel as if one can be defined solely on GPA or scholarly awards. Participation in community activities and political activism are BIG. One must ask the question and yearn to know more, this is all based on your individual morals, insight, concern, and a need/yearn for a queenly bond. Our theme is to Enrich and empower woman while we "Re- Educate our people, Re-Fute His-Story, and Re-Vamp OUR Legacy”. As Queens we believe that it gets lonely on a single throne, therefore we have not truly succeeded until we all are a collective body. Lend your sister a helping hand. A Queen lies in all of you!” – President, Shertona “Mahogany” Hankins
