The Lincoln University held it’s annual spring open house. The admissions office and other Lincoln students hosted the event.
Spring open house included an academic affair, a light lunch, performances, and tours were given across the campus to over 300 prospective students on March 28, 2014.
Spring open house kicked off with The Lincoln University cheerleaders performing alongside the school’s marching band, Orange Crush.
The International Cultural Center filled up immediately with prospective students, families, Lincoln University students, and faculty members as they grooved to the band’s musical selections.
Carl F. Walton, Vice-President of Student Affairs, Dean Patricia Joseph of College of Professional, Graduate, and Extended Studies, and the president of the university, President Robert R. Jennings gave speeches to uplift the prospective students, telling them what to expect if they do decide to attend The Lincoln University.
President Jennings left the prospective students with this key phrase “If you make this University your choice, you will not be disappointed”.
Spring open house ended with a small Greek step show in the Manuel Rivero Hall Gymnasium.
Donique Story, a current Lincoln University student said that he enjoyed giving his tour.
“I really just wanted to show students why Lincoln is a great place to advance your education, and also create your own destiny,” said Story.
