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 ›...

Governor Bill Lee speaks to audience of Nashville business leaders on campus

Governor Bill Lee speaks to audience of Nashville business leaders on campus

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee made an appearance in Allen Arena Friday Morning. Lipscomb hosted the “Nashville Business Breakfast” alongside the Nashville Business Journal, featuring the Governor as well as other speakers such as President Randolph Lowry and others. “Together [with other area universities] we will have about 100,000 college students in this area, those are consumers, those are folks who bring life and creativity to our community, they serve generously. And I hope that you are as happy as we are to be in a community where education is very significant.”  Said Lowry before introducing Lee to the audience of the city’s prominent business members. The Nashville Business Breakfast is a tradition that dates back 15 years at Lipscomb. Governor Lee reflected on how he attended the event “many many times” before ever stepping into the Governor’s office, as well as highlighted Lipscomb’s role in the business community. “Not only has this University been a significant part of the fabric within this community,” Said Lee “from a faith standpoint and a higher education standpoint…and from producing leaders but also being a partner and an important piece of the business community.” The event provides the opportunity for Nashville business leaders and students to network with the surrounding community and take part in a Q&A with the Governor. It also allowed Lee to express his new perspective on the business community. “I used to see you [the audience] as colleagues, costumers, and providers but now I see you as job creators… those who create jobs are the most vital part.” Gallery by Mckenzi...

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 › »...
