Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Lipscomb is a great school. With its location 10 minutes outside of Nashville TN, there is an infinite number of things to do, both on and off campus. The faculty is amazing and the classes are small, which is a good combination. It's really cool when the teacher actually care about you as a person instead of someone who just turns in papers. The sprititual life at Lipscomb is great too. Most of the students are there not only to get their degree, but to grow in their relationships with God as well.

Describe the students at your school.

There's a little of everything here. A lot of the students are very musically inclined, Nashville being Music City, there is a lot of musical interest. You have your hillbillies, your jocks, and your preppy girls, but I would say for the most part that the LIpscomb student body is made up of really solid people who want to meet new people. They love God, they love serving the community, and just having a good time.

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

Visit the campus! Talk to current students and faculty! If you're in college already, get to know as many people as possible. Participate in as much as you can.

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

Since the purpose of college is to continue education in preparation to "get out in the real world" and get a job, it is very important to look at the schools that make you a likely candidate for a good job after graduation. This means of course accredidation, reputation in the community, career placement services, and of course, a strong program for your field.

What's unique about your campus?

I think that the best thing about the school is the professors. I can't speak for every department, but for all of the classes I have taken, all of the teachers are very approachable and open to talk with you.

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

I wish that I had known more about the required chapel attendances. Every student is required to get 35 credits for chapel per semester, and with 16 weeks in the semester, that means that the student has to perform some sort of community service.

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

The college selection process must go beyond the school's academic offerings and promised financial aid. There are things to consider that will directly impact the student's ability to perform well in their collegiate life. The type of students, faculty, and beliefs of the university are some of the most important criteria to be evaluated before making any final decision on where to attend. The enjoyment that an individual can obtain during college can be immense and this joy will motivate the student resulting in a more successful academic life. Although the economy has proven to be quite detrimental to the average student, there are still many resources available beyond what the school's financial department has awarded the student. Taking time to look at the type of environment that the student enjoys will be most beneficial in finding a place of higher education that will be conducive to the student's needs. At first glance the most important things end up not being the most important; take some advice from someone who wishes he had looked beyond the school's academic offerings and financial aid awards.

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

I believe the worst thing about my school is the lack of original thought; there are hardly any classes that promote critical thinking. Most professors teach you to believe what they and the university believes, hardly ever deviating from that path.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who isn't: middle to upper class, straight, conservative, Christian, or preppy.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school has it's bad aspects, but I really love attending it and they are constantly improving and rennovating the campus in all areas: academically and residentially.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are friendly, helpful, and enjoyable.

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

Make sure you visit the schools you are thinking about attending. I ended up at a school I really just applied to for the sake of applying. However, after I visited, I changed my mind completely about where I was going and attended this university instead. Also, don't think about the money so much. Go where you will be happy. I could have had a full ride to several colleges right out of high school, but I can guarentee that I would not have been happy at any of those colleges. Live in the dorms, you will make more friends. And just be yourself. Campuses are diverse enough you will find friends who love you for who you are.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

In Nashville, it's known to shell out some good employees. Beyond Nashville, it's only known among its denominational affiliation with the Churches of Christ

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

Connection and balance will ultimately determine your/your student's success. Connecting with fellow students and professors provides the emotional and academic support that you will need to thrive during you years at college. Balance is a life skill that must be cultivated in order to be able to look back on the college years as the best part of your life. When choosing a school, find some aspect of it with which you can connect long before the first day of class. This could be a professor in your field, the coach of a sports team, or other students (look for on-line forums for future students). When it comes to balance, make sure to try lots of different things, and learn how to drop a few of them when you realize what is most interesting to you. I was afraid of being overcommitted, so I hesitated to get involved with anything my freshman year. Don't do that. I look back at that, and think of how much more fun I could have had! Finding the balance is key to making the most of the college experience.

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

Go to a college that draws you to it. Don't follow your friends if the university doesn't "feel" right to you! I am at Lipscomb University for a reason. It promotes my faith to Nashville and surrounding communities and that is why it feels so good to be here! I have a chance to be part of something great and the school is just so student oriented. Make your decision based on how the campus feels and how the department of your major feels. Just remember: you'll be living there for probably 4 years...

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Well, Lipscomb University is a Christian based school so there are required bible classes and chapel. So, someone who hates religion might stay away, but the campus is widely open to anyone, and will support almost any kind of lifestyle

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing would probably be the difficulty of finding the money to go here. I have always wanted to go here and for a year that has been 100% possible, but I am starting to lose some financial aid because of my parents' incomes. They are divorced, so it makes things difficult. I really want to stay here and complete my degree, instead of having to go to a state school where I have to deal with 10 times as many students.

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

Parents- encourage your students to follow their dreams, not only the dreams you have for them. Students- get involoved on campus, whether it is a club or a sport, get involved and get to know people. Try your best to keep your grades up freshman year so you have room for a few worse grades as you progress and your classes get harder. Be responsible and be yourself.

What's unique about your campus?

The Christian atmosphere is the best thing about Lipscomb. We are taught by Christian teachers and there is always a Christian element to our classes.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person should not attend Lipscomb if they are not open to new ideas mainly concerning religion. Also, if you expect easy A's, not going to find that here!

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Lipscomb University is best known for its rigorous academic programs. The schools of engineering, business and its new school of pharmacy. Rigourous academia characterize the institution's desire to integrate Christian education, rigourous academic programs, and commitment to ethics.

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

The biggest piece of advice for students is to set your priorities before school starts. It is essential to continuous success in college. Friends, ethics, and self-improvements are three priorities that can determine much of one's success. The biggest advice to provide for parents is to always read the fine print of financial aid papers. This can save money, time, and headache. It is also crutial to see reports of your child's mid-term and final grades. Always know the classes and teachers that your child is enrolled.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the ignorance of the students. Many students feed of f of what their parents believe; which requires little thinking on their part.

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

To make the most out of the college experience, find a metropolitan area with several colleges to pick from. Then pick the cheapest college. You will still get all the benefits of a college experience for a reasonable amount. Why pay $45,000 over $23,000 or $10,000 a year? You can always take classes at a cheap technical college and transfer credits to your school of choice. Cheap prestige. No matter you pay, you will reap the benfits of a beautiful city. And in a beautiful city you will find beautiful people, beautiful ideas, and a beautiful future.

What's unique about your campus?

It is a really fun and small location.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Mostly people from Church of Christ, but you'd be surprised what type of people attend.
