LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – The LU campus bookstore opened Aug. 5, 2019 after being away for three years. It’s located on the top floor of the SUC. Since its closing, students have found it very convenient being back on campus. “The bookstore does look different , it gave me the same vibes as the old one, but it’s more organized,” said Kre’ Shona Williams, a senior psychology student.

In the store customers and students can find Lincoln gear, snacks, electronics, school supplies, and textbooks for courses. Hours are Mon-Fri, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. – closed on weekends. Although there are no weekend hours you can shop online at

When students pay full price for a textbook they are granted a discount on a gift card through Amazon or Barnes & Noble. “Students can use a book voucher depending on scholarships & funds,” said store manager Ronald Lee, a graduate student from Kansas City, Mo.

Student employment opportunities will not be available until December 2019. Advice given from a current employee to future employees is to, “Listen to the training and you’ll understand quickly. It’s cool and pretty chill – it’s an easy job,” said Anjonae Selmone, a sophomore studying social work.

When you have the time, don’t be afraid to stop by our campus bookstore for books, Blue Tiger gear, snacks and more.
