Lipscomb Staff welcomes new students at ‘Initium’

Each year, the Lipscomb faculty and quest team closes out Quest Week with a special ceremony to welcome all the new students called “Initium.” At the ceremony, each student is given a piece of slate to remind them of the “clean slate” they have at Lipscomb, as well as a candle to light their path at Lipscomb while President L. Randolph Lowry, student body president Jack Webber and others spoke. In presenting the students with their slate, President Lowry reminded the students to “keep your slate close, put it up somewhere in your room, keep it where you can see it and let it be a reminder that while we are here to educate you and your parents lovingly support you, what ultimately will be on your slate will be of your choice” « ‹ 1 of 2 ›...

Gallery: Quest Week ‘Fanta Fest’

Inflatables, spike ball, badminton, and a lot of Fanta later, students are just one day from beginning their college experience at Lipscomb. Every year the quest team host an event called “Fanta Fest.” The event takes place in the yard between Ezell and Beaman, and students spray each other with cans of Fanta while going down water slides, playing games, running around and dancing to loud music and just having a good time. Later in the evening students had a paint party called the “Paint the Herd”. Students received a free t-shirt, danced to music from a DJ and throw colored paint powder all over each other. This gallery captured all the fun of “Fanta Fest.”   « ‹ 1 of 2 ›...

Gallery: Students hypnotized by Quest Week day two

Yesterday afternoon, students traveled to several locations around Nashville for service day, dressed up for “the Event” and attended a hypnotist show. Service day is when Quest leaders take students around Nashville to participate in clean-ups, organizing, entertainment and so many other things to serve the community around Nashville. Some of the places students served at were: Radnor lake, Project C.U.R.E., Glencliff High School, Habitat Re-Store, Rocketown, Shelby Bottoms, Southerland Place and many others. “The Event” is the black and white with a pop of color dinner where the Quest Team serves the students. There is live entertainment and a photo booth available at dinner as well. The hypnotist show by Brian Imbus has become a Quest Week staple through the years and guaranteed entertainment for all. Imbus brings students onto the stage to hypnotize them as well as offering the audience a chance to be hypnotized in their seats. Quest night two was full of entertainment and we’ve got another gallery full of it. « ‹ 1 of 2 › »...

Gallery: Quest Week’s Bison Bash and more

Lipscomb’s Quest team kicked off the week with the first tailgate of the semester in a combined effort with athletics. The tailgate offered food from Taco Mama, free tank tops and a chance to sign up for service day. Service day will take place today from one till four. The Quest groups will take to different locations and do community service projects around the Nashville area. Following the Bison Bash yesterday evening was a neon night at the Brentwood skate center. What’s a better way to make a first impression on fellow Lipscomb students than wiping out on roller skates? After the neon night, students headed back to campus to participate in this semesters first “On Wednesdays, We Eat”. This event is held nearly every Wednesday on Lipscomb’s campus throughout the school year. Typically a Lipscomb student attending will get to watch a free concert from a local band and eat a one-dollar meal. While the eating and free concert took place, the transfer students headed to Jeni’s on 12 South to mingle with other transfers. The evening lasted till well past midnight and definitely offered a little something for...
