The “Lair”

The Naming of the “Lair”
Some years ago, deliberation ensued to consider a new name for the “Recreation Center” to reflect a place where students could unwind after a long day of classes and academic rigor. Because the University’s mascot is a Lion, some locations on campus already used names to reflect the Lion (i.e., Lion’s Den). Therefore, during deliberations, it was deemed necessary to develop another name for the “Recreation Center” that would symbolize a place where students could spend their free time relaxing, and which is consistent with the mascot. Hence, in an effort to ensure that Lincoln University is truly “a home away from home” for our students, much thought and reflection was given; and the name “Recreation Center” was changed to “The Lair” in 2004.

Activities in the “Lair”
The Lair is a center for recreation. It is the place where students come to unwind and have fun among friends. Entertainment in the “Lair” ranges from billiards, Play Stations 2 and 3, the Wii Game System, Ping Pong tables and many more recreational activities. In addition, the “Lair” is full of excitement and interaction.
