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...

Last Travel Weekend to Croatia

2 Comments

Our last travel weekend, myself and 7 other students made our way to Croatia. We’d wanted to visit Plitvice National Park, the place with the beautiful lakes, all semester and finally made the trip down. As we took a bus to Zagreb, I was so glad that this was going to be our last weekend trip. The views out the bus window were beautiful. It had just started to get warm a few weeks prior...

The Business Chapel that changed it all

Be the first to Comment

Each Thursday morning, Lipscomb University offers several breakout chapel opportunities for students to listen to speakers, worship and be filled with truth. One of these chapel opportunities is the Business Chapel that happens each week in Stowe Hall, Room 108 of the Swang Business Center. Week-after-week, speakers who represent a true servant-leadership spirit in the business world, a world that is typically controlled by money and politics, speak to Lipscomb students about how their faith...

A Weekend In Poland

Be the first to Comment

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...

Country vs. City: No contest in Ireland

Be the first to Comment

The first travel weekend, I and seven other Vienna-based students had the opportunity to travel to Ireland for the weekend. We went to see Dublin and some of the countryside and had a great time. If you ever find yourself going to Ireland my one tip would be to go see the countryside over the city of Dublin. The city, I found was more modern and less charming than I expected. There were a couple...

Lipscomb gives students many diverse options for their study abroad experience.

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....

Vienna Church

Lipscomb students, meet Vienna!

Be the first to Comment

We made it to Vienna, and wow, what a beautiful city! We’ve been walking around the city for the past few days and though we’ve seen a lot, there is definitely a lot more to explore. We have become familiar with the church near our house, and it’s a helpful landmark that has helped us navigate the neighborhood in the first few days. If we can find the church, we can find our way home....

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. We have basic needs- a computer, a socket, maybe some food and we are good to go. Internet failures are a serious crisis. On Netflix, I just finished an ‘old school’ show about a girl who goes off to college- Felicity. I love it because through half of the show I’m secretly...

Here and Next

I probably couldn’t find better visualization of a “learning community.” Sitting in a garden full of art, the exterior exhibit of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, I’m sure Professor Horton is talking with my Art & Lit in Italia peers about the Yoko Ono Wishing Tree just to the left—i.e. life, enriched. Unenhanced (with the exception that I saturated the colors in the photograph, which also speaks to the wonderment of LU: that a...
