A total of 650 high school seniors, transfer students and over 400 family members and friends converged on the campus of Lincoln University last Friday to attend the "Feel the Roar" Spring Commitment Day open house festivities.
The four-hour event gave students who have been accepted to the university for the start of the 2017-18 academic year an extensive opportunity to tour several academic facilities, and speak to current students, faculty and administration.
After checking at the university's International Cultural Center (ICC), guests were welcomed by Interim President Dr. Richard Greene, Provost Dr. Patricia Ramsey, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management Kimberly Taylor Benns and Associate Director of Admissions Nikoia Fredericksen, in the ICC Auditorium. 
Despite a persistent rain throughout the day, several current students gave campus tours that included a visit to the Student Union Building, and lunch at the Wellness Center.
The event concluded with a pep rally in the auditorium.
Over the course of its 161-year history, Lincoln has earned a worldwide reputation for
combining a liberal arts and sciences-based undergraduate curriculum with with select graduate programs that prepare students for a highly technological and global society.
The university has graduated an impressive list of educators, businesspersons, theologians and lawmakers, including former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall; Lillian Fishburne, the first African American woman promoted to Rear Admiral in the U.S. Navy; poet Langston Hughes; Kwame Nnkrumah, the first president of Ghana; and Nnamdi Azikiwe, the first president of Nigeria.
"We want prospective students to know that Lincoln University is an excellent university, and one where faculty and staff are intentional about helping them reach their goal of graduation," Dr. Ramsey said. "We prepare these students for life and success in the global marketplace.
"Here at Lincoln, we know our students not only by their names, but also by their aspirations."
