        2016-2017, Master of Science (MS)

        Military-Army Veteran found the right program, accidentally finds community

        The staff are incredible. From the registrar, veterans office, bursar, financial aid, provost and the various departments of the colleges the staff has always been very communicative. I looked at Lipscomb from its reputation and word of mouth. They have the degree I wanted and I would have attended this University just based on that fact. What I found however was groups of people who not only passionate about the academic side of the house, but the personal and living side of the house. I would say that the staff and many of the students go above and beyond the generally accepted norms of society. Lipscomb serves as an intersection of Faith and Education.

        I was looking for an education... what I found was a family

        When I made the decision to return to school for my MBA, I knew that I had a big decision to make. Taking on another graduate program was a big step forward in my career, and I wanted to make the most of it. I was thoroughly impressed with Lipscomb's program as I went through the information sessions. Not only would I get the advanced business knowledge I needed, they offered numerous specializations that allowed me to learn and network. What I was even more impressed with was the genuine interest that everyone at Lipscomb took in me and my education. I had professors go out of the way to help me schedule interviews. I had professors give me wonderful career advice. Even the administrative staff of the College of Business took interest in my life. Through those interactions, I realized that these people had become more than just colleagues... they were friends, they were family. As I have continued in my career since graduation, I have maintained contact with many of these people. I still grace the halls of Lipscomb on occasion to speak and give back to the programs that meant so much to me. If you are looking for an education, Lipscomb is a fine university with great academic offerings. If you are also looking for a place that truly cares about you and not just your tuition dollars, Lipscomb offers something that just can't be beat.

        The people are the difference

        Lipscomb gave me 4 years of moments that I constantly look back on with so much gratitude. The character of the teachers and coaches is genuine - they care about you and your success. From them I learned about discipline and drive that helped prepare me spiritually, within my career, and throughout life. Lipscomb is a place of hard work. It is a place of caring. It is a place that stays with you the rest of your life. The campus is beautiful, but the people make it what it is.
