What is it like to live at Lincoln?

Living in Lincoln was like filling up a part of my life I didn’t even know was missing. Being at Lincoln has allowed me to connect with many amazing individuals of different backgrounds, something which I truly appreciate. It’s about having people to stand by you when you’re feeling down and having a safe space to go to when things get too overwhelming.

Have you found any academic advantages in living here?

Definitely. Personally, I found that the library provides a very conducive environment for studying – large windows to provide natural light, printing facilities and reference text books. Such facilities have greatly helped me in my academics throughout my time at Lincoln.

What social advantages have been provided?

The social events organised by the different student bodies allows residents to take a break from our academic lives and just socialise with one another. I feel like this respite from the daily cycle of lectures, assignments, and tutorials is something all of us need to get our system rebooted. Not only that, some of the events that were held had very interesting themes that gave residents a chance to display their more creative sides.

What is your opinion on our sporting opportunities?

As I am not a very sporty person, I can not say much about joining in on the sporting activities. However, I truly enjoy cheering on the Lincoln team from the sidelines whenever there is a match.

How was the transition from high school to university made easier for you?

As a 3rd year transfer student, my transition was less of a high school to university transition but one of from a local university to a foreign one. Lincoln has made the transition much easier for me as I have a network of people that I can ask for advice whenever I need it. I have fewer things to worry about than I would have if I was staying anywhere else.

Living at Lincoln has helped me to…
