What Students Are Saying

4.14 Average Rating
If you are considering Lipscomb, you're on the right track! Make sure you visit www.golipscomb.com to find out more information about admission, scholarships and financial aid. One of the things I love best about Lipscomb's admission process is that you don't have to write any essays! (Yea! We all know how much high school students are not interested in writing more essays!) Instead of an essay, Lipscomb asks prospective students to go through an interview. It was super easy and a lot of fun. The admission recruiters at Lipscomb are the best, hands down! They are lively, fun and energetic, and ready to answer any question you may have. And don't forget to visit campus! The best way to find out if Lipscomb is right for you is to walk around campus and imagine yourself living there. Lipscomb has many dates set aside for interested students to come visit the school. That information can also be found at www.golipscomb.com. And when you come to visit, don't forget your purple and gold!

As a prospective student, try to get your test scores (ACT/SAT) as high as possible. Lipscomb has some great scholarships for test scores.
Kelly from Orland Park, IL
College is totally different than high school. Become close friends with your professor! I recommend having an idea of a major considering college is not free.
Victor from Antioch, TN
Lipscomb University has Greek Life, so I highly recommend joining one of the social clubs on campus!! The professors have a calling to be there for more than just to get paid; they actually want to see their students succeed, and they care about their students academic, spiritual, mental and emotional stability. It is important to build a friendship with the professors, as they want you to feel comfortable when talking to them.
Kayla from Florence, MS
Participate in activities and join clubs. It makes the college experience that much better and is a good way to make new friends.
Caleb from Louisville, KY
Visit campus! I know it seems like a stereotypical answer, but it's true. The school's information online and such doesn't do it any justice compared to your own experience when you visit.
Katharine from Metamora, IL
apply early! trust the admissions counselors. they'll fight for you!
Jessica from Smyrna, TN
I would highly recommend that you make the most out of your college experience. Get involved in a club, go to the games, support the sports teams. Also, it's better to study for your mid-terms/finals in advance. It's not like high school were you can get by only by showing up to class. Most of the learning takes place outside of class, so you might as well make the most of your time.
