We remembered the beginnings of our university, when it was only a small Bible school, and David Scobey, chair of...

The Business Chapel that changed it all

Each Thursday morning, Lipscomb University offers several breakout chapel opportunities for students to listen to speakers, worship and be filled with truth.

My life as a women’s tennis player

Be the first to Comment

Being a part of the women’s tennis team at Lipscomb University has been such an incredible blessing in my life. Not only have I built relationships with each girl as teammates on the court, but these girls have truly become sisters off the court as well.  And like the family we are, we each have something unique to contribute. As one of the most diverse teams on campus, the women’s tennis team represents nine different...

2 Comments

We all come to college with expectations. I came hoping for freedom to do whatever I want, whenever I want, and not a soul was going to stop me.

I have no doubt this is the truth, but I...

Old school, new school and life

Be the first to Comment

There are three things that people say college kids have to learn how to balance- sleep, school, and friends. They forgot one. Netflix.
