When I visited Lipscomb University for my New Student Orientation, I got the chance to know what it felt like to call another place home. I felt as if there was something continuously pulling me into the campus. I wanted to find out what exactly was making me so drawn toward the university, and so I did. For me, it was the moment I stepped into my audition for the Theater department. I knew that I felt welcomed enough to be on the campus. The staff members as well as the students in the department felt so inclined to make sure that I felt comfortable in their space. While I felt so new to the department, I still knew that this was the place meant for me. It has the people that make you feel more close to home when you feel alone. The people are everything to me here at Lipscomb but that did not stop me from wanting more from its college. I found out that there are so many opportunities to be involved in, both on and off campus. From being a mentor for another student to directing an entire show for the student body are some of the many ways to feel a part of the college. Staying connected with other students, professors, and even local employees working at the university is what brings me joy. My most memorable moment I have from being at Lipscomb so far is meeting so many people that show so much kindness and care for one another. Lipscomb is the type of university that exists for making everyone feel welcome and involved in not just the social community but also in the area of belonging to a home and making one's mark in it as well.
It's overall very welcoming and friendly! The food on campus is a bomb and the facilities are very clean. There are many friends to be made and the professors are more than willing to help us succeed. The events are amazing and the location is perfect-- considering the university has its own stores and is nearby many nice restaurants and out-of-campus shops.
Lipscomb is a great Christian university with many great opportunities academically and a great staff. The campus is very well kept and the facilities are clean. There is increasing diversity and much student involvement and participation. Lipscomb is a college that equips it’s students for the future.
Lipscomb is the perfect school for me. Class sizes are wonderful and professors make an effort to get to know you. Professors also keep regular office hours which makes it easy to get help when needed. Extracurricular activities are a great way to get involved. Greek Life, intramural teams, basketball games, student government, and the student activities board are great ways to get involved on campus and meet people.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Lipscomb University is 60%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Location, location, location! Yes, academics and extracurriculars are important, but going to school in a city that is enjoyable gives your student an opportunity to leave campus and recuporate from the stress of college life. Although the purpose of attending college is to earn a degree, do not forget that a social life is part of your education too. Classes can become over whelming, but students can find respite in spending time with friends at beautiful parks and restaurants near their campus.
Colleges and universities that have plans for future expansion, both academically and architecturally, will likely be more inclined to meet your student's needs for a well-rounded college experience. Inquire how tuition dollars are allocated toward your student's department of interest. Choose a school that places an emphasis on your anticipated major, and you will surely find your educational expectations exceeded.
The small class size and inovlvement of the professors with the students. I graduated from a homeschool environment and the transition for me has been fantastic.
I had a hard time getting used them, because they are so different from my close group of high school friends that I grew up with.
A spritual yet realistic place to further education.
Small, you see people you know everyday at school.

Somewhat of a suitcase school. Many people leave on the weekends and the campus can seem dead. Though it seems this way, there actually are more people around than one might realize. You just have to find them.
The campus is gorgeous and everyone is very nice and outgoing. If you have struggles, which everyone does, there are always people to come around you and provide support to help you back on your feet. I love this place.
The price of tuition is the most frustrating thing about Lipscomb. I have taken out several loans and I continue to struggle with financial stability and affording the school.
It being Christian based, especially that it's Church of Christ. Lipscomb is the only Church of Christ college around this area.
That it would be a hard struggle.
Most of the professors are good people. However, I have only met 2 that are good teachers. This is my fifth semester here so I have been around the block a time or two. Classes that should be objective are made to be subjective. This allows the faculty to make sure the children of families that donate money pass with flying colors while the rest of us finish out the bell curve of grade distribution. My proof is in the fact that 4 out of 5 papers I received a C on have now been published, without any changes, by professional journals. I have also submitted for publication papers from fellow students that received A's. Not one of the 23 papers has been published but interestingly these students all come from families with a history of donating to the school.
They are accurate for the most part. I have met a few that do not fit the mold but most of them have transferred. Those of us who stay usually do so because of the scholarship and its too late to transfer and graduate on time.
There is plenty to do as long as you like kool aid, cookies, and bad singing. It is a church school so I understand they want everything to reflect a church like atmosphere. But, the Christian school front is really just for marketing to parents and an excuse to have their hand in everyone's business. Social life at Lipscomb is a joke. Most of the students portray themselves as future preachers on campus. However, DUI's, aborted pregnancies, and excessive drug use are okay as long as you pay the Lipscomb fine and they are able to keep it out of the media.
Everyone thinks the people at Lipscomb are very uptight and religious and have no fun. Since it is a private school, people think that everyone comes from rich families.
They want your money. If you do not have cash to hand over to them on a consistent basis then go somewhere else. Here's a little rundown of the extra costs they don't tell you about.
Not fulfilling your chapel requirement = $1000.00
(I am sure giving an extra grand to Lipscomb makes God happy)
Student loan processing fee = $200-$600
(Basically what ever they can keep without making a scene)
Printing = $200-$400 per semester.
(They have started using online books for several classes. Many schools have done this but the printers do not reproduce quality copies which forces students to reprint several times and Lipscomb makes money on reprints)
It does not take a certain kind of person to attend Lipscomb. If you are motivative and want to do well, then you are welcome.
Stuck-up, high-strung, very close-minded, judgemental. Some of these stereotypes hit the nail on the head so to speak. However, people at Lipscomb generally are very kind and, happy. Unfortunately they really do not have an open-mind about most political events, and if you do they look down upon you. It seems as though you have to put on a "Christian Lifestyle" to get extremely popular in this school.
