Lipscomb University Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 update and response.Learn More
Experience a day in the life of a Lipscomb student.
Other schools might call it an open house, but we like to look at your visit to Lipscomb as a sort of preview: a first look at what the next few years of your life could be like. We offer full-day visits, special visit days for students with certain academic interests, visit days tailored to transfer students, and even some Saturday visits for when life gets hectic.
As the name suggests, we hold visit days nearly every other Friday from September to April—plus the occasional Monday. The idea is for you experience campus life among current students as they go to classes, hang out in the student center and eat in the cafeteria, affectionately known as "the caf."
On a Lipscomb Friday you can sit in on a class of your choice, 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's a snapshot of what your day will probably look like:
10:00 A.M. Registration
10:30 A.M. Welcome
11:00 A.M. Lunch with admissions team and current students
12:00 P.M. Campus Tour
1:00 P.M. Students sit in on classes; parents attend info session
2:00 P.M. Departmental meeting with faculty member
3:00 P.M. Lipscomb Café
3:30 P.M. Residence hall tours
Please note that department-specific days may have an adjusted afternoon schedule.

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.
Here is a tentative schedule for Saturday visits:
9:00 - 9:15 A.M. Registration
9:15 - 10:00 A.M. Info Session
10:00 - 11:00 A.M. Campus Tour

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