MAY 2023


Thank you for your support this year. It’s a privilege to be a resource for our Lipscomb family, and we greatly appreciate our partnership with each of you. 

Our office, along with many others on campus, will be busy this summer welcoming the parents and families of incoming students during orientation. Summer Send-Offs are being hosted in eight cities. We would love to see you there if an event is in your town. Check out the information in the Summer Send-Off section below. If you know a family who is sending a new student to Lipscomb University, encourage them to connect with us. We always enjoy meeting our new Bison families!
Also, we'd like your feedback! Please take a moment to complete the survey below and share your opinion on how the university is doing in its role of serving your student and you!
Go Bisons!

This summer, the Office of Alumni & Parent Engagement will host Summer Send-Offs for incoming freshmen students and their families—and current parents and students are invited to attend, too! Join an area event to help welcome these families and answer questions they have about life at Lipscomb!
These informal gatherings provide the perfect chance for new Bison families to meet each other and visit with alumni, current students and parents. Click here to learn more and register.
Purchase Sounds tickets
Cheer on our hometown Nashville Sounds with fellow Bisons as the Sounds host the Norfolk Tides with fellow Bisons! Representatives of the Lipscomb community will greet alumni, students, families and friends on the plaza as they enter First Horizon Ballpark. Lipscomb President Candice McQueen (’96) will throw out the first pitch, and alumna Kelle Cates (’23) will sing the National Anthem. Other members of the Lipscomb community will be featured throughout the night. Fireworks will cap off the night’s festivities!
Tickets for the Lipscomb group in Section 105 are $19 each before taxes and fees. The Office of Alumni & Parent Engagement will add a $10 concessions voucher to each ticket purchased. We look forward to this fun night in Nashville! Purchase tickets.
