MARCH 2024


Happy New Year 2024 graphic
First off, I want to say a big THANK YOU for helping Lipscomb reach its Giving Day goals! Our parent donor goal was 350. We exceeded our goal with 474 parents donating to the areas of campus they are passionate about. Every gift matters, and we appreciate you pouring into the lives of our students.
I hope everyone had a wonderful spring break! These last few weeks are going to fly by! As we enter this last stretch of the semester, encourage your student to keep working hard as they are working on their projects and taking tests. If your student is struggling or just needs a some extra help, remind them that the Academic Success Center is available to help. 
Below you will find helpful announcements to help you transition through the remainder of the year, as well as several opportunities to join us on campus.

Go Bisons!

Director of Parent Engagement
