    Being at Lipscomb University is a great experience. There is always something going on for the students to get involved in, and I have made some of the best friends while I've been here. It's a small school, small enough that you can know just about everyone in the same major but large enough that you're not stuck sitting in your room at night. It is a wonderful school with plenty of opportunities for everyone.

    I love all of the people I've met at Lipscomb so far. The campus has a good sense of community, except on the weekends. Our campus is kind of dead on the weekends most of the time because there is a lot for students to do in Nashville, so nobody really wants to stay on campus. During the week though, there is always something going on in Bison Square or the Student Center.

    The people surrounding you on campus are full of good character. Once you find your core group of people, it's easy to just hang out in the student center, but at the same time, it is not limiting in that you can't extend past those people. Clubs are all around you, as well.

    Lipscomb is a great university. The location of the university is superb! Nashville is a big town with a small town feel. There is always something to do! Lipscomb itself is great. Everyone is so friendly. It is hard NOT to make friends. It is big enough for it to feel like a university, but small enough where your professors know you by your name and not a number.
