The Herd Has Returned

Lipscomb University is thriving in our “new normal.”

The Lipscomb community has come to life this fall with the return of students, faculty and staff to campus! Campus is buzzing with energy, and there’s an undeniable feeling of excitement among our community to be back together.

We are celebrating a record enrollment and the completion of a major Elam Residence Hall renovation, construction of a new parking garage, continued enhancements to McFarland Science Center, the expansion of Chick-Fil-A, the launch of the Lanier Center for Archaeology and more as we begin Lipscomb’s 130th year! We are excited about the year to come and the story we will write together this year. 

Every member of the Lipscomb community can participate in this bright future through events and activities throughout the year. These are an important aspect of campus life that provides a sense of belonging and community. Though some may look a little different at the moment, there are a number of events planned this year and we invite each member of the Bison Herd to join us!

Learn more about some of the virtual and in-person events happening at Lipscomb and check back often as new events and activities are added to our calendar!

Fall Convocation Livestream

Each year Lipscomb University opens its academic year with the President's Convocation, a joyful program filled with celebration and the music of Scottish pipes and drums.
