What is the Quest Team?

The Quest Team is a group of peer leaders who have gone through a rigorous interview, selection and training process in order to prepare them to serve you throughout the entire summer as orientation leaders. They're here to walk students through the entire process from registering for classes to hanging out during QuestWeek. They've been where you are and are here to point you in the right direction so that you feel welcome in your new home at Lipscomb.

7 Tips to Prepare for Life at Lipscomb

students at jenis

1. Spend time with family.

“I wish I would have really cherished the time I had with my family. You don’t really realize that you will not see them as often when you get to college, especially being far away from home.”
- Madisyn Rentz, ’24, Dietetics, Rockford, Minnesota

2. Get a plan for the semester.

“Take some time before you get here to map out and plan what’s important to you! Once school starts, you will have to pick up a lot of things related to academics and student life, so making sure you have a plan for self-care and spiritual investment will provide a lot of help in creating moments for rest.”
- Seth Meyer, ’24, Biochemistry, Mount Juliet, Tennessee

3. Connect with new students.

“I wish I would have reached out to more people who were coming to Lipscomb. Starting those conversations would have been super beneficial!” - Brady Bryson, ’25, Finance and Theology, Murfreesboro, Tennessee

4. Pack your bags.

“Don’t sweat Move-In Day and don’t overpack! A lot of times people bring too much stuff, so start with the necessities then go from there.”
- Abby Duesing, ’23, Nursing, South Holland, Illinois

5. Prepare your dorm room.

“The most useful things I brought for my dorm room were cleaning products and decor. Everything in life feels easier to handle if my living space is clean and homey!”
- Priscilla Obregon, ’23, Information Technology Management and Graphic Design, Nashville, Tennessee
