Lipscomb University Reviews
Academically, Lipscomb has some of the best professors I have ever gotten the privilege to know. The staff in general at Lipscomb, besides the president and vice president, are absolutely incredible! However, the social scene at LU is crap. The people there are so concerned with fitting in and joining a social club they become fake and superficial. They'll tell you that you don't have to join a social club to feel welcome but they're lying. Lipscomb students live for their social clubs and worship them. If you can stomach it, the academics and Nashville scene make it worth it, but you won't feel comfortable there until your junior or senior year. Lipscomb can be awesome if you don't fall into the trap and lose your identity.
My favorite thing about Lipscomb University is the family environment. The first time I visited campus everyone, from the faculty to the students, was so nice and welcoming. They really made me feel like I belong here. Now that I am attending Lipscomb, nothing has changed. i meet new people all the time and everyone is so kind. Another thing that drew me to this university was the opportunities here. Being so close to downtown Nashville there are so many opportunities, from jobs to internships. The last thing that drew me here was the college of business. Lipscomb university currently has the number one business program in Tennessee. Going into business, the opportunities offered here were just too good to turn down
The environment is welcoming and the people are so friendly! At Lipscomb, you will feel like you're home. You will make many friendships that last a lifetime. I chose Lipscomb so I wouldn't be peer pressured into doing things that go against my morals. Lipscomb has always been my dream college and I'm so glad to be apart of the family. Go Bisons!
