Lincoln University To Hold Spring Open House

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA ~ Lincoln University will hold its annual Spring Open House from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Friday, March 30 at Manuel Rivero Hall inclusive of a tour of campus and an address from Lincoln University President Ivory V. Nelson.

Organized by the Office of Admissions, Open House is an event that provides an opportunity for prospective students and their parents or guardians to meet with university faculty, staff, and students and to gain firsthand information about the university’s various academic programs and extracurricular activities.

According to Mike Taylor, director of admissions, Open House has become a popular attraction for prospective students. Taylor said attendance has increased annually and he expects the trend to continue.

Taylor credits two factors that helped sustain the interest of prospective students.  He said one factor is the university’s announced enhancement of campus life with the revival of football and a marching band.  Another is the establishment of five new academic centers of excellence that include biotech, materials and environmental sciences, teacher education and urban pedagogy, business and information technology, mass communications and a collaborative art program with the Barnes Foundation.

“The Spring Open House is a major recruiting event,” Taylor said. “The staff in admissions makes every effort to ensure it will be a valuable and rewarding experience for prospective students and their parents or guardians.”   

The schedule of activities is as follows:

  • 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. Registration at Manuel Rivero Hall. 
  • 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. Welcome Session by Administrators
  • 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. Campus Tours: Students will be escorted around campus
