MAY 2024


Happy New Year 2024 graphic
The 2023-24 school year is officially over and what an amazing year it has been! Without the students on campus, it’s unusually quiet. Well, except for the buzz of the cicadas that have found their way on campus!
The Office of Parent Engagement thanks you for allowing us the opportunity to serve your family this year. Our hope is that you have felt a deeper connection with the Lipscomb community through the events we have hosted, communication and prayer Zooms.
Several events are happening on campus and in cities across the country in the coming weeks. If we are in a city near you, please join us! If you are not following us on Instagram and Facebook, follow us so you can keep up with us over the summer!

Go Bisons!
Stacy Blackston ('00)
Director of Parent Engagement

According to the graduation office, May graduates can expect to receive their diplomas in the mail within 8-10 weeks of graduation.  Diplomas will be sent to the address students submitted as "diploma addresses" when filing Intent to Graduate forms at the beginning of the spring semester. The Lipscomb University photographer diligently caught many moments from the May ceremonies. Those are available to view on the Commencement page. Scroll down to the 2024 May Commencement Photos section.

The spring semester was a busy time in each of the colleges with special lectures, competitions, activities and events supplementing the wonderful learning experiences that took place in the classroom. Learn more about some of the student successes this semester in this review from the Office of the Provost. 

We know that parents are interested in what’s going on in the colleges and what their students are involved in each semester. Beginning next school year, we will highlight news and happenings in each college for fall and spring semester in the September and February editions of the parent newsletter.
