Cynthia Roberts organizes more than 100 college visits to Lincoln each year. Even though college visits are allowed only during lunchtime and after school, most college staff find these sessions to be well attended by interested students. Please sign up in advance so we have time to inform our students. Upon arrival of your visit day, please allow extra time for public street parking (no on-site parking available) and sign in for a visitor's badge at the Main Office. The Counseling Department is located across the hallway from the Main Office.
