Visits & Events

Visits

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

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.

Daily Visits

Even if you can’t make it for a Lipscomb Friday, we’d still love to have you come see us. We have morning and afternoon sessions available to tour campus and talk with an admissions recruiter almost every Monday through Friday; however, some dates throughout the school year have been removed from our calendar due to holidays or special events. 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!

Group Visits

Lipscomb University welcomes groups from all over the world to explore our campus! Group visits are for high school students in ninth through 12th grades on most Mondays-Thursdays. Group size is limited to 100 people. You can choose an admissions information session, a campus tour, or both.  We can also make arrangements for a meal in Bison Café.

Please make reservations 7 days in advance. We will do all that we can to accommodate your group. Also, please be aware that staffing limitations may occasionally require us to decline a group visit request.  Group visits requests for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 will open July 30, 2018.

Would you like to bring a group to visit campus?

If you have any questions regarding group visits, please contact Lori Ligon at Admissions@Lipscomb.edu or 615-966-1946.

Saturday Visits

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!

*Please note that the opportunity to speak with professors or sit in on a class is not available during Saturday visits.
