2017 Tau Phi Cowboy Show photo gallery

Tau Phi took some inspiration from country music star and club alum Thomas Rhett as the men’s social club hosted its 38th annual Cowboy Show Saturday night in Collins Alumni Auditorium. The night began by recognizing and praying for the victims and family members affected by the Las Vegas shooting at the country music festival last weekend. The show featured the men of Tau Phi and the women of Lipscomb singing country music hits varying from Charlie Daniels’ “Devil Went Down to Georgia” to Thomas Rhett’s “Playing with Fire.” The money the club raised through ticket purchases went to its philanthropy, Room in the Inn. Hunter Taylor directed the show and said that he feels the Tau Phi Cowboy Show and Tau Phi itself go hand-in-hand. “Neither one would exist without the other,” Taylor said. “Both of them show me that I can always count on my brothers to be there for me. I knew my boys would show up and give it all they had. I could not be more proud of them, and there’s not another group of guys I would have rather done this with.”...

For years, Sewell Putt Putt has been a favorite tradition due to the level of creativity it requires. This year, Jackson Smith, the RHD, decided to turn things up a notch by bringing in DJ Rio and AgentPaco to add more excitement to the scene. A Maggie Moo’s ice cream truck was another addition that brought students out to the men’s dorm. The RA staff of Sewell organized and executed the event. Sewell Putt Putt allowed for an escape from the hectic class schedule and homework while also creating memories. Thanks to the creative minds of the RAs and the RHD this year’s Sewell Putt Putt was bigger and better than ever before, which suggests for more exciting events to be held in Sewell in the future....

To celebrate Lipscomb’s 127th year, President Randy Lowry announced during the annual President’s Convocation that Lipscomb has been recognized as a prestigious national university, ranking 176th in the nation in the annual U.S. News & World Report’s “2017 America’s Guide to Colleges.” “We’ve received new recognition,” Lowry said. “I think it’s a great moment when Carnegie looked out and looked at this University and said, ‘No longer will we classify you as a regional comprehensive university; you’re going to leave the group that includes Belmont and Harding and Freed and Elon and a host of really good schools, because Lipscomb University will be elevated to the classification of a national university.’ And when they elevated us in a category of 300 schools, we came in 124 spaces ahead of schools who have already been on that...

Lipscomb University celebrated its 2017 graduating class by giving 545 undergraduate degrees to students on Saturday afternoon in Allen Arena. Three professors received “Outstanding Teacher Awards” — Lee Camp, Professor of Bible, Elisabeth Conway, Associate Professor of Biology, and Ruth Henry, Professor of Exercise Science. For his closing remarks to the graduating class, President Lowry spoke of what it means to be a Lipscomb alum. “The reality is that we, as this group, will never gather together again,” Lowry said. “But you will go out as a Bison and join the other 35,000 Bison who are out there. You will run into them literally all over the world, and I want you to know that as you do that, you will take the spirit of this community with you, and you will meet the spirit of this community as you find your fellow alums wherever they might be.”   « ‹ 1 of 2 ›...
