LINCOLN UNIVERSITY- The Blue Tiger Resource Center officially opened the doors in its Scruggs location on Wednesday to help address the needs of students, including such as items as food, clothes, and school supplies for women, men, and children. The center’s hours of service are 2-6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
“The resource center is going to serve the needs of our students outside of the classroom,” said Misty Nunn, LU’s director of Communications and Marketing.
Nunn thinks the resource center will make the university a much better space for students.
“Students worrying about their next meal, clothing for interviews, and diapers for their children are things that affect their performance in class,” Nunn said. “The resource center addresses everything they could possibly need.”
Students believe the resource center will benefit the university.
“I think it’s a great thing for the university to have because it fulfills the needs of students,” said Aaron Spencer, a senior journalism major from Kansas City, Mo.
To schedule a donation delivery, contact the resource center’s director Earnest Washington at WashingtonE@lincolnu.edu.
