PEOPLE FROM NY KNOW WHAT IM TALKIN ABOUT (hot 97)
But Anyway why is it that Lincoln University of PA is sooooo unknown. Whenever i mention the school people neva know what the hell im talkin about. If its one of the fisrt HBCU's shouldn't it get some type of credit. =D> They don't seem to get alot of students either cause the bangin down my door wit a full ride and i only have a 1000 SAT and 2.8 GPA lol. :lol:
IF ANYONE HAS AN ANSWER PLEASE LET ME KNOW
That's because usually the HBCUs known for athletics, in trouble with something, or is always in the news for something are known....
That's why when you walk into stores at the mall that sell HBCU paraphenalia you only see these major HBCUs
So your question is why is Lincoln so unknown??? Umm, I dont know how anyone could answer that...but I guess compard to other HBCUs that are bigger, located in larger cities, have famous alum, good sports teams, etc those may be the reasons Licoln isnt as popular cause of its size, location, and not being " known " for too much...but I do know Thurgood Marshall is a Lincoln alum...thats the only reason I first heard of the school....but I think a schools popularity is really based on the things I named where people would have had a chance to hear of it.
You'd be surprised, even the big schools aren't that well "known". I told a white girl I was a student at Hampton and she thought I was somewhere chilling with The Diddy or something. I know a few people at my school that didn't even know the university existed until late in their senior year (mostly northerners or westerners). As future alumni of HBCU's we need to support our black schools in someway atleast. I want folks to be like she's C Diddy a HAMPTON grad when I grow up. When you go and do positive things in the community it shows that HBCU's are preparing you well and gain the recognition and respect they deserve.
Now after all the positive stuff...
I heard Lincoln professors were on strike at one point.
i wanna get funky is a segment on a radio show in NYC where people call up and voice their concerns, arguments, something that gets them mad or whateva.
For example i wanna get funky wit No good niggas gettin young girls pregnant and not takin takin care of their responsibilites.
Or you could be like i wanna get funky wit my boss James Mathews form harlem for fuckin my co- worker in stock room of Footlocker :lol:
thats why i said "people from NY know what i'm talkin bout"
