Lincoln University To Host Fall Open House On October 25Nation’s First Black University Gives Students, Parents Up-Close Look

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA--- In an effort to familiarize both students and parents with its programs and campus life, Lincoln University, the nation’s first Historically Black University, will host a Fall Open House on Friday, October 25 from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Lincoln University is inviting both students and parents to tour its historic campus, located in southern Chester County. The Fall Open House will allow students and parents to tour the historic campus, meet faculty, students and staff as well as discuss academic information, scholarships and financial aid. The event will also include a buffet lunch.

“We are very excited to welcome potential students and their parents to our campus to meet our faculty and staff,” said Lincoln University President, Ivory V. Nelson, Ph.D. “We take pride in the fact that these students and their parents want to take a closer look at our institution and all it has to offer.”

Founded in 1854, Lincoln University is a premier, Historically Black University that 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. The University is nationally recognized as a major producer of African Americans with undergraduate degrees in the physical 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.
