LINCOLN UNIVERSITY- A campus-wide power outage occurred on the evening of April 10, 2023, causing some chaos on campus. According to Lincoln University staff, a transformer failed, which caused the power to shut down. Though students were asked to evacuate the building, many students were already outside escaping the dark and trying to learn what to do next. The Clarion talked with a few of the affected students.
“I really couldn’t do much really because I had assignments that I had to do and stuff. I was very disappointed.” -Landry Rudasingwa, a freshman biology major from Kigali, Rwanda.
“It was dark and I couldn’t see anything. I ran outside and saw that I’m the first one outside. Everybody was outside getting irritated after a while.”-Kelyjah Carter, a freshman computer science major from Chicacgo (right) and Robert Gray, a freshman sport management major from Chicago.
“I’m not going to lie for me, it kinda sucks because I couldn’t fall back to sleep. It messed with me mentally because I didn’t really feel secure.”- Alec Reigel, a freshman criminal justice major from St. Louis.
