Current Students Who Found the Right Fit at Lipscomb

Elliott Jones

Elliot Jones (’23)

Staying close to home in Nashville has only enriched Elliot's college experience at Lipscomb.
As a high school junior, she went to visit her top-choice school out of state, but the experience wasn’t what she expected. So she decided to tour Lipscomb for a different perspective. When she moved into Elam Hall her freshman year, Elliot instantly found community, including as a member of Phi Sigma, a social club.

A college search in the middle of a global pandemic meant Ben had to get creative. The online search process made it more difficult to get to know schools without visiting campus, but it did allow him to consider colleges that were further from his home in Chicago. During New Student Orientation, his Quest Team leader recruited him to work for Admissions. And now that he’s here, the experience has been everything he hoped for.

Ashlyn Holmes

Ashlyn Holmes (’24)

During her college search, Ashlyn (’24) realized the value of a Christian education, and the supportive community at Lipscomb worked with her to help make that possible. As she weighed two full-tuition scholarship offers at different schools, Ashlyn was struck by the encouragement she received from everyone at Lipscomb during the college search process.

Marin Brown (’26)

Her whole life Marin Brown (’26) knew where she wanted to go to college, but she didn’t end up there. During her junior year of high school, Marin’s best friend who was thriving as a freshman engineering major at Lipscomb invited Marin to come for a visit, and she immediately fell in love with campus. “Walking this campus I just felt at home,” she remembers. I felt a click in my heart that I was supposed to be here. I knew that here I would be safe, I would belong, and I could work for something greater.”

Peter Backer (’23)

When Peter Backer (’23) was a freshman in high school, he came to Nashville for a baseball camp, then returned as a junior to visit colleges, fully set on a particular school. But the campus tour just didn’t feel right. So he and his family left and scheduled an appointment to visit Lipscomb. “I literally walked on campus, and told my mom I was going to go here,” Peter remembers. “I love this place. I fell in love with it. Since that tour, I’ve never looked back on the decision to come to Lipscomb.”

Julia Correa

Julia Carvalho Correa (’23)

When Julia began her college search as an exchange student, she knew she wanted to attend school abroad but never imagined she would find a home at Lipscomb University, almost 5,000 miles from her hometown. Now Julia is a member of the President’s Student Advisory Council, the International Students Board, RAICES (Hispanic Heritage Club), Pi Delta social club, the WEB DuBois Honor Society and the National Society of Leadership and Success.

Meet Julia

“I went on a tour of campus here, and after like the first 30 minutes, I immediately knew. I’ve grown up in Nashville my entire life, and I’ve yet to be bored of this city." - Elliot Jones (’23)

“I found Lipscomb entirely on the web. Since I’ve gotten here, I’ve made so many friends and built so many connections. If you are interested in a small school with a good campus and a good community, Lipscomb might be for you.” - Ben Barry (’25)

“Lipscomb was the only school that was reaching out to me every week—sending me emails, making sure I was OK through admissions and through the financial aid process. They were reaching out to me. No other school did that.” - Julia Carvalho Correa (’23)
