What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

if I cold go back in time and talk to my high school self, I would tell myself to not be discouraged when you think you have no way to pay for college. I would then tell my high school self that I should take the initiative to apply to as many scholarships as I possibly could because I would need them later. Lastly I would tell myself to have confidence and do everything you have to do and do it with a smile on your face, because it makes all the difference.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I knew that Lipscomb was dead on the weekends, and that financial aid isn't easy to come by for this school.

What's unique about your campus?

My favorite part about Lipscomb University would have to be the on-campus environment. There's nothing like it; it's almost as if the campus itself is alive and charged with an atmosphere of friendliness, adventure, and joy.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

To be honest, I usually brag about the unusual and extremely high percentage of beautiful women that attend the school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't get discouraged. If you can't get into your first choice school, there are still many more options. You can always transfer. However, you never know how much you may fall in love with a school that was not your first choice. Explore every type of option first. Apply for all the scholarships you can. Remember it is extremely important to get involved in everything you can during your first year of college, and never turn down an opportunity to hang out with a group of people that are different than you. You never know who you may become best friends with. In college, don't procrastinate! But most importantly, have a blast. They really are the best years of your life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To make the most of ones college experience the indiviual should prepare for school work maintain a mindset of being focused and welcome various cultures of peers when socializing. For the parents I would suggest they be highly involved in the students journey throughout the students college experience for financial guidance and support .

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is that is not as diversed as I would perfer it to be. I also would prefer if students socialized outside of the racial barrier more often and have a greater appreciation for various cultures.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any type of person can attend this school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When choosing a school you need to look for the one that suits you best, not anyone else. Look at everything. Factors such as campus, location, and after school activities make a huge difference and should be reviewed carefully. As with anything, though, you have complete control over how much you love or hate your college experience. It is whatever you make it out to be. Just have a possitive outlook and be willing to work hard and you'll succeed no matter what.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

A lot of people tend to go home on the weekends cutting back on things to do.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

It has a great business school faculty and the location is incredible.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

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.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known more about activities for helping transfer students get to know people on campus. It was difficult at first to get plugged in, but everyone is quite outgoing and so once you meet a few people it's easy to feel at home.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

There are many pieces of advice I could offer to prospective students; some I have taken myself, and some I have had to find out the hard way. The most important advice would be to make a long-term plan for financial reasons. Will you work immediately after graduating from undergrad, or is graduate school in the future? Plan finances accordingly and make sure you can afford your school(s) of choice. There is nothing more frustrating than realizing that you can no longer afford the school you attend and you still have to pay for graduate school. Get the paperwork for financial aid, such as the FASFA and loans, done as soon as possible. It saves a lot of panic when you near the school year. Finally, the most important piece of advice comes from my uncle--stay focused. You've spent all this time, effort, and money in attending this college, and you don't want to waste the education you've worked so hard to get. Social time is a necessary--and fun--part of college life, but it shouldn't interfere with academics. Above all, whatever advice you take, make the most of your college life.

What's unique about your campus?

As a music major, the music program is why I chose this school; the faculty are extremly knowledgable and helpful, and are willing to help whenever you need it.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

As everyone knows, picking the right college is an important decision. Often it is one that is accompanied by much stress and anxiety. To avoid a lot of stress and to make sure that you choose the right college, you want to have a good 'game plan'. First, look for colleges that support your interests. You want a school that offers the education for your desired field. Second, search for a school in your price range. This is a major factor in choosing your school. Third, look for schools that fit your lifestyle. You want to think about the size of the school and its location. Often people have specific requirements for this category that narrow the field greatly. Lastly, when down to a couple schools, visit each one and make sure that you can see yourself at that institution. This will eliminate any last-minute regrets and will insure that the school you chose is the right school for you.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish i had know how bad the food sevice conducts the meal plans. I also wish I had know that they were going to raise tuition.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who like to party and drink a lot should not attend this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is too small. Small school equals closed minds. The school is in a good location- only 10 minutes away from ANYTHING you need.

What are the academics like at your school?

The school academics are simple enough. They way to truly make it through Lipscomb is to never allow any faculty to know that you graduated from public school. You may also want to have a checkbook ready.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Social clubs are major on campus, but if you are not white, rich, or completely stuck up, you will be alone.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

They are rich, snooty, brats who are in search for a degree with a "name." The degree opens doors and will give you connections through the prestige throughout the Churches of Christ. You will have a job when you graduate and make double compared to the person who graduated from public schools and had a higher GPA than you. For guys, that mate is a pretty girl who will be a trophy wife in all aspects. She will go against the "Christian" morals of the school to satisfy him, but will read the bible in front of his parents. She will have his children and be his wife, while he is allowed to cheat; it is this way because he makes the money. For girls, that means a husband who will leave you money as long as you make sure that dinner is cooked, the children are out of his face, and you are his personal concubine. You will have all the botox you will need and all the alcohol you want.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

This school is a waste of money for anyone who does not want to live in a bubble. The tuition is high and there is no way to leave loan free if your parents are surgeons or big-time lawyers

Describe the students at your school.

The student body is mostly white. Any minorities are on sports teams;the others are to help fill the minority quota mandated by the government, in which Lipscomb is constantly behind.

Unique close community of Christian brothers and sisters working together to accomplish their goals for their life.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Each student within the University is unique. They care greatly about others who are less fortunate. The campus outreaches to the community and goes on many mission trips. We are a community that cares about each every person.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do not be scared to look at schools you think you will ever attent. When you find a school that feels right to both the student and the parent do not let anything keep you from going. Even if it is a school you never though you would possibly go to.
