New Student Send-Off Parties 2016

Sponsored by Lipscomb University Parents Program

Summer Send-Off Parties are an informal opportunity for new students and their parents to meet and visit with each other, as well as current families and alumni, before coming to Lipscomb. Sponsored by the Lipscomb University Parents Program, these parties are the perfect place for alumni, students, and parents to welcome the Class of 2020 into the Lipscomb community! This summer, parents, alumni, and friends will host send-off parties for newly admitted Lipscomb students in hometowns across the nation. These parties are hosted in homes, parks, churches, local restaurants, or anywhere our new families can get together to share their excitement about being a member of the Lipscomb family. Our alumni, current students and their parents are also invited to share their Lipscomb experience with our new families! In 2015, nearly 300 guests attended one of the eight summer send-off parties. If you are interested in hosting a Send-Off party this summer, please contact Sonja Hayes, parents program director, at (615) 966-5720, or
