    Students told to vacate off-campus housing

    It was a typical day for five Lipscomb students when they received notice they were “overcrowding” the home they are renting. What followed the notice was an ultimatum to “correct the situation” or vacate the property within a few days.  Shelby Bratcher, a senior Corporate Marketing major from Hendersonville, TN, splits rent with her four roommates to make their living situation, as students, feasible.  “Not really knowing where we’re gonna live long term was not scary just nerve-wracking. After the first few days, we kind of started getting frustrated,” said Bratcher.  Metro’s Housing Code, sections 16.24.030 & 17.04.060, allow up to three unrelated adults in 1 home. The group is…

From admission to graduation, these offices are with students every step of the way and have the potential to improve their college experience. In the past several years, many students have had negative experiences when dealing with these offices; this has led to stress, frustration, and uncertainty.  When finding a solution, President McQueen set the focus on students. Bison One Stop is a hub created to answer students’ urgent questions about topics affecting…
