[January 19, 2009]  Lincoln College students will have a special opportunity to celebrate the historic occasion of Barack Obama being sworn in as the 44th president of the United States. On Tuesday, students at the Lincoln campus will participate in an inaugural celebration that will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Alumni Room in the Meyer-Evans Student Center.

HardwareThe celebration is being sponsored by the Lincoln College Student Services Department.

Bridgett Thomas, Lincoln College director of student life, says the celebration will offer students time to watch the event on a big-screen television as well as learn more about the new administration through some unique educational opportunities.

"We look upon this event as something that will stick in our students' memory indefinitely," said Thomas. "Our goal is that our students will be learning while watching as this historic moment takes place. We've planned some games featuring trivia on Obama's rise to the Oval Office, and we will be passing out door prizes that include Obama memorabilia."

Judy Atteberry, student services office manager, looks forward to seeing all the excitement from Washington. "Many of our students voted in the past election, and it brings it full circle for them to see the political process," said Atteberry.

The department expects to have the entire campus participate in the event.
