    The food is not the best, and very dry with low of a selection. Basically I bought a 10 meal plan and I used is maybe five times and I am in my second semester. Gross.

    There's only one cafeteria and the food is not bad, it's definitely edible.

    There are not enough options for residents with meal plans. The food is too greasy and the lettuce and other salad foods are wilted and old. I don't eat in the cafeteria.

    There is a dining hall, and I think that the food is average. Your average meal is a basic five dollars, and you can eat all you would like from a choice of Mexican, burgers, pizza, sandwiches, a salad bar, deserts, and drinks. The atmosphere is very loud, and the doors are only open during certain hours, so it does not always work well with a students schedule.

    Their Greek Life is very bad. I must say for this to be an HBCU the divine nine is not the best. You never ever see the sororities or fraternities strolling or doing anything fun. You hardly see them in general. Joining one at this school would really be a waste and would not be fun.

    Sororities and Fraternities at Lincoln University are great but I feel as though some of them do not always follow traditional rules. I also think that some of the fraternity and sorority members need to exemplify themselves more as leaders. I also feel as though the sororities and fraternities need to stand out and show students what each organization is about and why they should be a member of that organization.

    There are 4 Greek sororities and 3 Greek Fraternities at lincoln University. The sororities are Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Incorporated. The Fraternities on campus are Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorporated, Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Incorporated, and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorported. The other two fraternities got kicked off the yard but they should be back soon, which is Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated and Kappa Alpha Phi Fraternity Incorporated.
