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

My advice to students and parents about finding the right school would be to apply to many colleges. Visit them, ask questions, research the surrounding community, and make sure that you could call that school home, because it will be your home for months at a time. I found the school for me by doing exactly what i stated, and it worked. So good luck!

What kind of person should attend this school?

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.

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

I would tell parents and students to really explore different types of colleges. I had no idea what type of college I wanted to attend until I actually did some research. It really helped me decide on where I wanted to spend my college life. I would also advise parents to not pressure their kids into finishing in 4 years. Most students don't know what they want to do with their lives their freshman year of high school. They are only 18 years old! Let them explore and figure out what they want to be when they get out of school. That way they won't feel pressured into staying with the first major they chose, because that major may not be right for them. Their children will then find what is the path they are suppose to be on, and enjoy their jobs once they graduate. I am lucky that my parents have not pressured me.

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

2 things: It's convience to Nashville. I love how close Lipscomb is to so many activities in Nashville. The other is that it is Christian based. I went to a Christian high school, and many of my friends that went to a non-Christian school miss the atmosphere. I love that I can talk about my religion freely here.

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

I think that each student should pick the college that's best for them in the field that they are studying about. They should also pick a college that would focus on each individual instead of just being a number in a large college. Don't pick a college just because your best friend is going there, or just because it's popular. Go where you know for sure that you can get help whenever you need it about whatever it is. Parents should also persuade their kids to stay focus and concentrate on their school work at all times when their kids are far away from home. The parents should also advise their children to attend a college where there are many school related activities and to be involved as much as possible.

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

i think that having classes that are too large can cause many confusion

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

Look for a place that fits your needs financially. Professionals tell me all the time that it does not matter where you go to school, it just matters that you get a degree and learn as much as you can along the way. To Students: Get as many internships as you can in college. Though they are often unpaid, the experience you get is priceless, plus it's a wonderful way to make your resume look amazing. I have had 3 internships, but wish I would have started earlier and done 2 or 3 more. Also, study hard, but make sure you save time for you. College is one of the greatest times to meet people and discover who you are. You will learn more about yourself in four, quick years than you have in the last 15 years of your life. College has had its ups and downs, but it's been an amazing ride and I'm sad it is ending so soon. Cherish the time because it goes fast.

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

It's run as a business more than a school. Those with money in the community are treated better than the students who spend thousands of dollars a year to go to this school.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who has no goal of succeedeing at finding a job someday

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

I think all students should take as long as possible to weigh their options. College is a decision that has an irrevocable impact on an individual's life and should contemplated as seriously as picking one's spouse or career. In order to get the most out one's college experience, they should identify their goals through college. If the goal is simply to have fun, then meet as many people as possible. If it's to beat their fellow classmates academically, then they should bucke down.

What's unique about your campus?

Combination of religious and career focus.

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.
