STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

I LOVE MY HBCU!

I chose Lincoln University because I wanted to attend an HBCU and the education program. I'm from a small town so I wanted to attend a more diverse group of students. The college was also well known for the acceptance rate. I had a low ACT score but had great academics.


Course Curriculum - 

The curriculum wasn't the best. There were lots of changes which caused students confused if they transferred from a different college. Some students majored in liberal studies and were apart of the Education program.
