More than 400 students were awarded diplomas from Lipscomb University this fall, including eight women from the Tennessee Prison for Women. The traditional students’ graduation ceremony took place in Allen Arena on December 16, while the graduating inmates’ ceremony was the day before at the Tennessee Prison for Women. President Randy Lowry gave the charge to the students at the traditional students’ graduation ceremony. “As you go, take these thoughts with you: you go as part of the Bison herd that numbers about 30,000 alumni; you go as part of a special community that will always respect you, always welcomes you back and always be honored and proud that you a part of it; you go with our deep regard and our great hope that God will work out His plan for your life and that you will see your part in His story.” President Lowry closed with an Old Testament blessing from Numbers 6:24-26: “May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord’s face shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May the Lord turn His face towards you and give you peace.”   « ‹ 1 of 2 ›...

With a mechanics-inspired routine, women’s social club Phi Sigma scored the top prize at the eighth annual Stompfest on Thursday night in Collins Alumni Auditorium. Men’s social club Theta Psi received second place with its boy-band stomp, and women’s social club Delta Omega took home third place as “DO Army.” Morgan Ellison and Ciara McKinney co-directed Phi Sigma’s show, and Katie Markham helped choreograph. Ellison said it’s hard to describe how excited she was upon hearing Phi Sigma being called out as the victors. “The fact that we actually won this year and redeemed ourselves is really such an incredible feeling,” Ellison said. “There are really no words to describe it. We’ve worked so hard for this.” Photos by Sarah Johnson  ...

Opening tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Collins Alumni Auditorium is Lipscomb Theatre’s production of She Loves Me.  This charming, romantic musical features senior Scott Wilson as Georg, junior Lauren Yawn as Amalia, senior Kaylea Frezza as Ilona, junior Sam Kell as Kodaly, and sophomores Logan Dozier and Jonathan Killebrew as Sipos and Arpad, respectively. Set in a 1930s European perfumery, the audience follows shop clerks, Amalia and Georg, who aren’t particularly fond of one another. After both respond to a “lonely hearts advertisement” in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, but remain unaware that they’re exchanging those letters to each other. She Loves Me runs Nov. 3-4, 10-11 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 5, 12 at 2:30 p.m. Free student tickets are available at the box office. Photos by Becca Risley...
