Visits & Events
We want you to experience our campus before you make a decision as big as where to go to college. So we offer two ways for you to visit: Lipscomb Fridays and daily visits.
Lipscomb Fridays: As the name suggests, we hold visit days nearly every other Friday from September to April. That way, you’re not one of a bazillion other people trailing after a tour guide, unable to hear a word they say. The idea is for you to have an experience at Lipscomb that will give you a real sense of what it’s like to be a student here.
On a Lipscomb Friday you can: sit in on a class, get to know current students, meet professors, take a tour, talk with an admissions counselor, eat in our dining hall, check out the dorms, and figure out if Lipscomb is the right place for you!
Here is a tentative schedule for your visit:*
- 10:00 A.M.
- 10:30 A.M.
- 11:00 A.M.

*Please note that department-specific and transfer days may have an adjusted afternoon schedule!
Every year we offer a few visit days specifically designed for transfer students. At these special events, you will have an opportunity to tour the campus, meet current transfer students, enjoy dinner with our faculty, and more!
Although we believe the optimal campus visit experience is visiting on a school day, we understand that a visit during the week may not be feasible for some families' schedules. As a result, we offer a few Saturday visits in the Fall and Spring semesters. We request that you make your reservation at least one week prior to your campus visit. Register for a visit and discover what it means to be a Bison!
