An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “Dr. Fred Gilliam (former Dean of the College of Engineering) once called me because I overslept for an 8 a.m. exam. That is not something you get at other schools. They never gave up on me.”

    • Christie C.
  • “Before I came to Lipscomb, I thought I’d have to choose between a relationship with God or the sciences. Lipscomb made it extremely apparent that it’s not a choice…that God is in engineering as well.”

    • Lauren Heinrich
  • “The people at Lipscomb have become my family. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to grow and for the faculty pushing me and teaching me how to be the best I can be.”

    • Noah Jones
  • “Dr. Gallaher and the other faculty in the Biology and other departments made me feel like I had a second home on the third floor of McFarland [faculty office space].”
