Lincoln University’s Graduate Program to Host Spring Open House on March 29; Students to Receive an Opportunity to Learn About Faculty, Courses at University’s Center for Graduate and Continuing Education

Lincoln University, PA (— Students interested in pursuing a graduate degree can receive a comprehensive overview of Lincoln University’s graduate degree programs on Saturday, March 29 from 1:30 p.m.-4 p.m. at the University’s Center for Graduate and Continuing Education, 3020 Market Street, in downtown Philadelphia. Registration will be conducted from 1:30 p.m.-2 p.m.

Each Spring, the University’s Graduate and Continuing Education program hosts an open house for potential graduate students to meet administrators and talk with faculty and staff, as well as alumni of the University’s graduate programs. The event will also afford attendees the opportunity to receive an overview of key topics in the Graduate and Continuing Education program, including academic programs, scholarships, financial aid and campus life.

“For persons who desire to continue their education at the graduate level in areas of human services, education, educational administration and management, Lincoln University provides an excellent opportunity,” said Dr. Gladys J. Willis, dean of the University’s School of Humanities and Graduate Studies. “The uniqueness of Lincoln’s graduate program is that classes are offered in the evening and on Saturdays, which accommodate the needs of persons who have full-time jobs.”

Students interested in attending Lincoln University’s graduate open house should reserve their space by contacting the University’s Office of Admissions at (800) 790-0191 by March 26.

Founded in 1854 as the nation’s first Historically Black University, Lincoln University combines the best elements of a liberal arts and sciences-based undergraduate core curriculum and selected graduate programs to meet the needs of students living in a highly technological and global society.

Lincoln has the unprecedented distinction among all colleges and universities of having two of its alumni honored with U.S. commemorative stamps. Last month, the U.S. Postal Service honored Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, and a 1930 Lincoln University graduate, became the 26th honoree in Black Heritage Commemorative Series. Last February, the U.S. Postal Service also issued a Commemorative, first class stamp for 1929 Lincoln alumnus Langston Hughes, a world-acclaimed poet.

The University is nationally recognized as a major producer of African Americans with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences (biology, chemistry and physics); computer and information sciences; and biological and life sciences.

From April 2003 through May 2004, the University will celebrate its sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary, with an array of campus and external events, activities and announcements. For more information about Lincoln University, please visit our Web site at
