Convocation

President’s Convocation inspires continued growth and excellence

1 Comment

At the beginning of every school year, we have our President’s Convocation; a time to reflect on the past year, as well as the year we are embarking on. At this year’s convocation we also reflected on the 125 years of Lipscomb as an institution and how that has grown and changed throughout the decades. We remembered the beginnings of our university, when it was only a small Bible school, and David Scobey, chair of...

Since I’ve been traveling, I’ve learned that not every single trip I will go on will run smoothly. No matter how much planning my friends and I do, there is bound to be something that goes wrong, or a plan that gets altered.  Just the other day, a train trip we thought would take a mere five hours ended up being closer to nine.  We discovered the schedules had been updated last minute, and fortunately...

Be the first to Comment

We got in to Oslo late at night, so we didn’t...

This past weekend, the Lipscomb, Oklahoma, and Rochester students all made their way to Poland, by train, for a weekend in Krakow, and the surrounding areas. The main purpose of the trip was to visit Schindler’s Museum as well as the infamous Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. Before our trip, we all read the book Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. We also watched the movie “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” as well as...

Why Lipscomb?

Be the first to Comment

Although there are many schools in which you can pursue a college education, Lipscomb University is one of few that will invest in who you are as a person as well. Lipscomb takes the extra step to surround its students with unique opportunities that will challenge the way we think, lead, serve and ultimately live our lives. Take this past week for example:  On Tuesday evening we had the privilege of listening to Kenneth R....
