Full calendar of upcoming fall events below.

With the fall semester quickly approaching, Lipscomb University’s student life team is busy planning events for the students’ arrival.

Louis Nelms, director of student involvement, said he is ready for students to get back on campus.

“One thing things students should be really excited about is the cafeteria renovations,” Nelms said. “The ice cream station has moved, and we are opening up a really cool patio space.”

This new space will allow students a larger outdoor eating and “hang-out” environment. Nelms said the student life office is looking forward to hosting several events in this new space.

Nelms added that he is proud to announce one of the newest additions coming to the Bennett Campus Center. Lipscomb is introducing the new restaurant Creekside Burgers & Shakes to replace Far East Fusion in the student center.

“We are sad to see Far East Fushion go,” Nelms said, “but are excited for a brand new eatery.”

Another big announcement is the Parking Partner Program for commuter students. This program will allow students the ability to park at Woodmont Hills Church of Christ and take the shuttle to campus. Every time a student does this five times, they will receive the perk of three FREE meals from the cafeteria.

Every Thursday night beginning August 23rd until October 11, Maggie Moo’s ice cream will be giving out free ice cream in the square at 9:30 p.m. to all university studentsHigh Rise will also still be hosting “Wednesday Nights We Eat” every Wednesday evening at 10 p.m.
