  • I am a commuter. Living off campus is not as bad as I thought it would be. If you're committed you will find ways to interact on campus. I have…

  • Jul-23-2014 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The food here is great for a college cafeteria, and there are plenty of restaurants right below the caf. The cooks are friendly, and most things are sourced locally and prepared by the school's chef.

    The food is great here! On campus there are places like Papa John's, Blue Coast Burrito, Far East Fusion, and Chick-fil-A. Also, there is a huge buffet, cafeteria-style dining area in the student center readily available for anyone. Lipscomb also has made it to where students can use their student cards off-campus to pay for other various places to eat.

    The food court has a good selection, with Bluecoast, Chick-fil-a, and Auntie Anne's being my favorites. The dining hall has an ok selection of foods daily, but can get a tad boring after a while.

    Definitely could be better, it's not bad it's just repetitive and is really easy to get bored of. Overall not bad for college food though.

    The food court has a variety of options that you can choose from such as Chik-Fil-A, Starbucks, a pizza joint, Aunty Anne, etc. If you don't really want something on campus there are a few places around campus to eat at.

    When I visited campus I ate in the dining hall and it was amazing. Hopefully they offer a lot of variety in their choices though. There are a few restaurants in the student center so you have other options.

    Some of the food choices get old rather quickly, but it's nice to have some selection while on campus. I have heard of some people getting sick from the cafeteria, unfortunately. I suggest keeping some food in your dorm room fridge just in case.

    The cafeteria provides many healthy and tasty meal options. The food is great, but it can become redundant. The student center also has many fast food options if you are tired of the cafeteria. There is also a hidden coffee shop to found on campus that is pretty great!

    13 social clubs. Stuff gets intense. There's a spot for everyone. Theta Psi is the best though!

    Greek Life is very noticeable here. Every Thursday, students wear shirts that represent their specific greek club they are involved in.

    Beware of the Student Center during Pledge Week. Social clubs get really intense with their recruiting, but the experience is enjoyable overall.

    I can't answer this well because I am not in a sorority. Also, our Greek life is not associated with the national clubs so they are called social clubs rather than sororities/ fraternities. Those in the social clubs seem to have a true bond and really enjoy it.

    They have 7 different sororities and 6 different fraternities. From what I've heard, they aren't all rude and stuck up like the movies portray them here. I imagine it is great to be a part of. I personally may join one depending on my work load!

    The social clubs are a really good way to get to know people on campus. They all are a really tight knit group.
