As my time studying at my community college while living at home came to a close, I was still very unsure where I wanted to continue my education. I stumbled across Lipscomb and after my first visit, I was in love. It was the close knit, Christ centered community, that I had been praying for, and now as a current student, it has exceeded my every expectation. I've met lifelong friends, participated in many campus events and have found this place to be my home away from home.

Lipscomb University is a community like no other. The campus has a small town feel, but the city of Nashville is anything but. One of my worries about transferring was being able to meet people. At Lipscomb, everyone did a great job of putting that fear to rest. Faculty, different student organizations, and of course the students themselves welcomed and encouraged me into the campus life. I can honestly say that transferring was one of the scarier times in my life, but definitely one of the best.

I was attracted to Lipscomb partly because of the number of mission trips Lipscomb offers to their students. I knew I wanted to travel and go on mission trips while I was in college and I could not think of a better place to do that than at Lipscomb. Another factor that played a big role in my decision was the faculty. My advisor and teachers all genuinely cared about my success and I knew that this, as well as the small class sizes, would give me a fantastic opportunity to build relationships with my professors.
