Since I’ve been traveling, I’ve learned that not every single trip I will go on will run smoothly. No matter how much planning my friends and I do, there is bound to be something that goes wrong, or a plan that gets altered.  Just the other day, a train trip we thought would take a mere five hours ended up being closer to nine.  We discovered the schedules had been updated last minute, and fortunately...

The Business Chapel that changed it all

Be the first to Comment

Each Thursday morning, Lipscomb University offers several breakout chapel opportunities for students to listen to speakers, worship and be filled with truth. One of these chapel opportunities is the Business Chapel that happens each week in Stowe Hall, Room 108 of the Swang Business Center. Week-after-week, speakers who represent a true servant-leadership spirit in the business world, a world that is typically controlled by money and politics, speak to Lipscomb students about how their faith...

A Weekend In Poland

Be the first to Comment

This past weekend, the Lipscomb, Oklahoma, and Rochester students all made their way to Poland, by train, for a weekend in Krakow, and the surrounding areas. The main purpose of the trip was to visit Schindler’s Museum as well as the infamous Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. Before our trip, we all read the book Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. We also watched the movie “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” as well as...

Country vs. City: No contest in Ireland

Be the first to Comment

The first travel weekend, I and seven other Vienna-based students had the opportunity to travel to Ireland for the weekend. We went to see Dublin and some of the countryside and had a great time. If you ever find yourself going to Ireland my one tip would be to go see the countryside over the city of Dublin. The city, I found was more modern and less charming than I expected. There were a couple...

My life as a women’s tennis player

Be the first to Comment

Being a part of the women’s tennis team at Lipscomb University has been such an incredible blessing in my life. Not only have I built relationships with each girl as teammates on the court, but these girls have truly become sisters off the court as well.  And like the family we are, we each have something unique to contribute. As one of the most diverse teams on campus, the women’s tennis team represents nine different...

Great expectations: the college edition

2 Comments

We all come to college with expectations. I came hoping for freedom to do whatever I want, whenever I want, and not a soul was going to stop me. Ok, maybe that’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but I knew I wanted freedom. I wanted to redefine myself. I needed a fresh start. Everyone says your college years are the best of your life. I have no doubt this is the truth, but I...

Old school, new school and life

Be the first to Comment

There are three things that people say college kids have to learn how to balance- sleep, school, and friends. They forgot one. Netflix. We have basic needs- a computer, a socket, maybe some food and we are good to go. Internet failures are a serious crisis. On Netflix, I just finished an ‘old school’ show about a girl who goes off to college- Felicity. I love it because through half of the show I’m secretly...

Here and Next

I probably couldn’t find better visualization of a “learning community.” Sitting in a garden full of art, the exterior exhibit of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, I’m sure Professor Horton is talking with my Art & Lit in Italia peers about the Yoko Ono Wishing Tree just to the left—i.e. life, enriched. Unenhanced (with the exception that I saturated the colors in the photograph, which also speaks to the wonderment of LU: that a...
