Why Lipscomb?

For over 130 years, Lipscomb University has been a private Christian liberal arts institution committed to Christ-centered teaching with strong academics, genuine camaraderie, and meaningful personal development. At Lipscomb, we provide our students with the resources, insight, and encouragement to flourish in their calling. Flourish in an environment where your faith is challenged and formed, alongside your area of study. 

Why study at Lipscomb?
No matter which path you decide to take at Lipscomb, you can be confident of one thing—that our strong academics will be rooted in Christian faith, not only in the classroom but within the culture of our entire campus.

Meaningful community begins in our resident halls with hall leadership chosen to help you navigate spiritually and relationally during your next four years. It flows into our classrooms with devout professors serving as teachers and mentors, in all capacities.

From there, you will have the chance to gather weekly with the Lipscomb community at The Gathering to worship, pray and hear from guest speakers who encourage you in your faith. To keep the conversation going, our weekly small group settings are where we dive into the specifics of what we are learning in Scripture, and how to further our pursuit of God.

We also believe the best way to lead is by serving. This is why we offer service opportunities in the Nashville area, as well as globally. From our yearly Service Day when we cancel classes to volunteer around our city, to hosting mission trips, to offering college degrees for incarcerated individuals. We do all of these things for the sake of serving and loving others wholeheartedly, all while challenging you in your studies and faith.
