  • Each dorm has different things going on monthly in order for all residents to have the opportunity to meet new people. The dorms are nice, clean and usually quiet…

    The cafeteria is amazing. There’s so many options from salad bar, sandwiches, vegan, to grill, and the specials.

    The food options at Lipscomb University are so good! The cafeteria has several different options of an all-you-can-eat buffet. There are other delicious options on campus to choose from including: Blue Coast Burrito Express, Chick-fil-A, Papa John's, Starbucks, etc.

    Could use some more options here. For like the first two months the food is wonderful and it seems like your options are endless. Well, after a while you will get bored of eating Chik Fil A, Zebi's, Asian Fusion, Blue Coast, Papa John's, and whatever the cafeteria has (Nacho Bar happens a lot). However, recently they have expanded Bison Bucks to go to the places across the street, too. So, maybe you will get bored of the food by like November?

  • 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.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    I think only one club is nationally recognized but Greek life is huge here... Like the only thing really exciting to do is to kind of join a social club (because Sororities and Frats drink and party but social clubs don't). Rushing is fun and awesome and there are many positives to joining a social club than you would think. Trust me if prepares you for the people you will have to deal with when you get a job. I recommend anyone who wants work in the social aspect of their life to join a social club just because it prepares you for life in ways you would have never guessed. I am an anti-social person just so you know that I am not biased. I just have a very open mind and have many curiosities, so I decided to join a social club and I thought they were very stupid until I decided to rush. Then, I was like oh my this is fun, I finally have a group of people I can relate to.... And you get a LOT of presents from them all and you get to experience a lot of new things that you would not be crazy enough to try alone. For example, you may have to go up to a cute boy and tell him he has a nice butt.

    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.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    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!
