Lipscomb University Reviews
The best aspect about Lipscomb University specially in my Computer Engineering major is the quality of education provided. The department of engineering included various faculty members who have earned their experience during both professional and academic settings. This helped in providing the perfect mix of instruction potential and advice. They almost always had the appropriate guidance with respect to a variety of educational and career queries.
Lipscomb is a wonderful campus located in a very safe neighborhood in Nashville, TN. The faculty and staff support student growth academically, athletically, and spiritually. I cannot think of a better place to go for the "total package" experience. The Communication Department in particular is a growing department with several knowledgeable professors who engage students in current new media practices and challenge them to grow through real-world assignments. However, regulations from the higher ups at the university prevent students from reporting on truly "groundbreaking" or controversial topics. You could call this a bit of censorship. On the other hand, students have plenty of opportunities to write, interview, shoot video and photography, edit, and work with a number of creative software. Also, the department runs a weekly campus news show which, although not highly popular among students on campus, gives journalism students good practice in newsroom behaviors and on-camera delivery. Professors are extremely kind and genuinely care about all aspects of each student's life. Often, they will invite students over for home cooked meals for class!
Lipscomb University is highly ranked for its College of Education program. I left the program feeling very confident in my course work and ready to begin my career as an educator. I was hired quickly in my home state and love my everyday job teaching 2nd grade!
Lipscomb University has a fabulous Adult Degree Program that is perfect for people like me who are returning to complete a college degree after many years. The combination of lecture and online classes is great for busy working adults who must split their time between family, work and school.
Lipscomb is a great school with a strong set of moral standards and a intense understanding of what kind of school they want to be. The best recommendation I could give an incoming student is to know what you are getting your self into before you commit. If you find the campus life and curriculum worth the price, than you should go all in, however if there is something you find off-putting, keep searching.
