What makes a small Christian college experience unique?
Lipscomb University
Small faculty-student ratio AND small class sizes. While other institutions offer small faculty-student ratio, Lipscomb University has been able to also provide small class sizes (average class size is 25). You'll get the opportunity to know other students and your faculty. We truly strive to make all students feel seen and known by their creator through higher education. We value the gifts and abilities God has given to our students and work to make this a place where those gifts come to life.
