You've known the day would come. And now that your student is ready for college you're filled with excitement, relief and perhaps still a little uncertainty. You're not alone, though. They are, too.

After having been there for them all these years, it can be hard to accept that your student will now be miles away trying to make it on their own. Just remember, they don't have to make it all alone.

We're here to help them get the most out of their experience at Lipscomb—both academically and socially, while making sure you feel confident that they will always receive the support and guidance needed while away from home.

What an exciting time for you and your student. Welcome to the Lipscomb family. This section includes information we think you might find interesting and helpful. And if at any point you have questions or don't find what you're looking for, please contact Scott McDowell, Senior Vice President for Student Development and Dean of Campus Life, at or 615.966.5690.
