College Week!


This drawing is drawn by a student that attends Lincoln High school. He/she put lots of hard work into this drawing of Santa Clara Mustangs.

College week began with Comfy College gear day, many teachers and students dressed down for this laid back day. College Week occurred October 15 – October 19 this year. Each day during lunch, the quad was filled with upbeat music and aspiring artists. They drew and colored in multiple college designs from San Jose State’s Spartan and Cal Berkeley’s Bear Claw in chalk on the ground.

The second day of college week, ASB hosted exciting games in the quad, many people signed up for the annual water balloon toss. This year the competition was fierce but that didn’t stop students from showing up. They also had Cal State help with college applications, known as their college application workshop.

On Wednesday, Wild 94.9 set up studio in our quad and played music during lunch. Lincoln had their photobooth available with college decor and fun costumes. Also, they had a booth for students who are figuring out what road they’ll take after high school. On a name card, they wrote their aspirations and wishes for post-graduation.

For the second to last day of college week, ASB hosted more games in the quad. Lincoln students and staff wore more college gear, some students dressed up as their college mascot! 

The last day of college week consisted of wearing your college colors, Ms. Kolling wore all blue for her UCLA pride! Today teachers and administrators hosted a college fair; the quad was filled with tables having information about college as well as post graduation options. Teachers talked to students about college and answered numerous questions about scholarships and grants. 

When a DJ from 94.9 was asked for advice on college, he stated “If you put it into the universe, it will happen.” Summarized, he told kids never to give up, keep persevering, and push through the one class you hate.
