I absolutely love Lipscomb University! It has small class sizes so that the professors are able to know your name and have a relationship with their students. All of the professors will go the extra mile in order to make concepts clearer. The student life is also great! The sense of community that you get at Lipscomb is something that I was searching for and definitely found. Lipscomb is a great school with a high emphasis on making sure that the students understand and learn the concepts in order to thrive in every day life during and after college.
Review Lipscomb University
Honestly, I hate paying for on-campus housing because it's so expensive! However, the dorm facilities seem adequate enough. I wish that off-campus housing had less restrictions on who can apply.
Attending this university has already opened many doors for me and introduced me to some wonderful people that I hope I will remain close with for the rest of my life. The reason that I do not regret choosing Lipscomb University is because had I chose to attend a different school, I probably would not have met great friends to encourage me to finally get the help I need from the counseling center (which is free, so that's another bonus about my college). I was able to receive the help I needed from Lipscomb something that I was unable to do in high school and who knew if I would have bonded as well with a therapist at another college as I did with my therapist as I did with the one I have at Lipscomb.

I grew up in a very sheltered environment and what makes Lipscomb great is that it has a very family oriented loving feeling on campus. The majority of the people that I have met are really loving and sincere. They're really opening and you instantly get that feeling of having a home away from home.
