I chose Lincoln University simply because I knew it was special. At Lincoln, I was not only presented with the opportunity to pursue African Studies, but I also received a competitive academic scholarship. On campus I am able to conduct service work, have an on campus job, enhance my leadership skills, make connections with good people, and so much more! Being successful in life takes much more than being successful in the classroom and I knew that Lincoln would best equip me for that journey!
