Family Weekend 2018 Banner 

All Lipscomb parents and families are invited to join us for a special Family Weekend October 5th-7th. A full line up of activities is being planned so you can have a great experience on campus and explore the city of Nashville. Family Weekend kicks off late Friday afternoon with one of our signature events, Coffee with the Provost. Mix and mingle with Provost, Craig Bledsoe and key faculty members. On Saturday you can enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast with the president and end the day with the ever popular Tau Phi Cowboy Show.
