Lipscomb alum Briston Maroney took the 615 stage to begin Live on the Green’s first-ever 4-day weekend festival Thursday night. Maroney was a music major at Lipscomb and has since gone on to tour and play his “rock” music. This night was the first August show with dual stages. Maroney played on the 615 stage, while there was also a main stage. Despite the fact Maroney was on the smaller of the two stages, he certainly was not lacking a crowd. The street in front of the stage was lined with people of all ages. While Maroney played the 615 stage, another Nashville native Morgxn played the main stage. Morgxn showcased his new song titled, “A New Way,” with crowd-pleasing lyrics advocating acceptance of  “different” people.

Larry the Cucumber joins voices hailing Lipscomb’s 129th year; President promises more parking

Larry the Cucumber was among the voices celebrating Lipscomb University’s 129th year at the August 27 President’s Convocation, during which both new parking plans and facilities were heralded.

In the parade, 98 flags were displayed representing 55 nations and 43 states from across the world. Generous donors, who have given millions to help Lipscomb grow into an even bigger family, followed the flags. An example of the generosity: The AM Burton Society has given $2.5 million in scholarship. That group was followed by The Nashville Pipes bagpipe trio which led the board of trustees, leadership team, and the president of Lipscomb, Randy Lowry, and wife, Rhonda, into the ceremony. Soon after, the student body was led in song, before Chelsia Harris, the executive director of nursing gave, told students to pursue this academic year with perseverance and prayer. A familiar cucumber then took over as Mike Nawrocki, who voices Veggie Tales’ Larry the cucumber, and the visiting professor of cinematic arts took to the stage. He told his story of pursuing medical school, only to strike up success with Veggie Tales and Big Idea Entertainment and Production. He said  Lipscomb students should to expect the unexpected and listen if God calls them outside their comfort zones As the convocation was nearing the end, Lowry introduced singer/songwriter Ellie Holcomb, who shared her story and award-winning song, “Red Sea Road.” Lowry then announced there would be a new parking garage...

SAB host the first annual Lipscomb Luau

Although the Fall semester has just begun, Lipscomb students are holding on to summer until the end. Lipscomb’s Student Activities Board hosted their annual Lipscomb Luau on Friday afternoon to kick off this year’s activities. The Luau featured upbeat Hawaiian music and a beach volleyball tournament in the sandpit behind Elam Hall. No matter the competition level, students put together their best players and registered in teams of four.  Each team was also encouraged to create crazy team names and matching uniforms, with “Sandy Cheeks”, “The Hobbits”, and “Fake Tan Squad” being the standouts. This year, the sand volleyball tournament was almost postponed due to rain, but the cloud coverage didn’t put a damper on the fun. “We just wanted to throw a fun event for new freshman on campus that makes the first weekend of college not as scary,” SAB member Madison Wonders said. “We want people to continue to meet each other, whether they’re playing volleyball or not, to come and grow the community.” Students were offered grilled chicken, pineapple, and Hawaiian Punch as refreshments throughout the match. The tournament ended full of smiles, laughter, and some friendly competition. The winners, Team Memphis Tiger Basketball Fan Club, received bragging rights and their picture on the SAB Instagram. View the gallery below to see all the fun from the...
