LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – The bowling alley located at the heart of Lincoln’s campus has officially reopened. Students got the ball rolling again at the Scruggs University Center during a bowling party hosted by the University’s Campus Activity Board on Thursday evening.
Lincoln’s CAB decided to host a bowling night as part of its Welcome Back Week activities. Both new and returning students were able to partake in the event as they kicked off the spring semester.
“We had a great turnout,”CAB President Michaela Crenshaw said. “I’m ecstatic that the bowling alley is open and I’m glad that the Campus Activity Board was able to host a great welcome back event for the student body.”
The bowling alley was previously shut down in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a variety of maintenance issues. After nearly three years of anticipation, students returned to the lanes, eager to bowl with their friends. A great turn-out led to plenty of laughter, music, and the sounds of rolling balls and falling pins.
“I think it’s really cool that I can walk from my dorm room and go bowling right here on campus,” said freshman Donte Moore.
The bowling alley will be open Wednesday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Students will be charged $8 per game, per lane.
