    Snow completely transforms Lipscomb University

    What began as a cold weekend on campus quickly turned into a winter wonderland, as almost six inches of snow covered Lipscomb University. Students left their dorm rooms for dinner Sunday night to walk out into the very beginnings of a snowfall that would not end until late Monday afternoon. The snow fell in flurries at first, gathering intensity until fat flakes were falling quickly, and at least two inches were already on the ground by around 10 p.m. It did not take long for snow festivities to start up among the student body. Many students pulled on their winter coats and hats and headed out into the snow to…

    Lipscomb baseball documentary wins prestigious Murrow Award

    The eighteen minute and thirty-seven second video documentary captured more than just the story of the iconic Nashville Sounds’ scoreboard — it captured the cherished memories of players, coaches, and the people of Nashville. The Grand Ole Guitar is more than just any old scoreboard. As interviewee and former Sounds pitcher R.A. Dickey said in the video, “in my mind it’s the Nashville landmark. If I could put in my backyard, I would try, that’s how much I think it means to this city.” The Lipscomb University School of Communication team poured hundreds of hours into the video documentary project. The proposal for the video had been selected through a…

    Jelldrik Dallmann appreciates the rewards from this year’s championship soccer season

    Months ago, before the Lipscomb men’s soccer team played in the ASUN conference championship final, senior forward Jelldrik Dallmann of Kuhstedt, Germany, mentioned that his dream was to win a championship ring – and had been since he’d come to the United States. The Bisons went on to do just that – win the final game, take the title of ASUN champions and win their rings. On top of all of that, Dallmann was named the ASUN Player of the Year for the 2022 season. Once the championship rings made their way to Lipscomb’s campus, the team held a ceremony. That tangible reward was new to Dallmann. “They don’t have…

    Three amazing adventure books for you to delve into

    Republished from Barkley’s Book Recs, March 9, 2023. Adventure — fast-paced action, challenges, quests, battles and heroes. Quite literally… adventures.  I love adventure novels because they keep you invested the entire way with well-crafted stories and great characters. Plus, it’s hard to leave mid-adventure because you want to learn how it ends. Adventure novels can fall into or overlap several other genres, so some of these could also be considered “members” of other genres. But I’ll be highlighting them here. Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo I know I’ve already raved about Leigh Bardugo (see my fantasy books post where I talked about her trilogy Shadow and Bone), but I guess here…

    Lipscomb by the numbers: the bookstore

    Though there may be less Lipscomb by the numbers throughout the summer, as students are off campus and the numbers are therefore inherently less, there will still be a few here and there. This week takes us down to the basement of the Student Center, to our beloved bookstore. The Lipscomb campus bookstore offers everything from school spirit tee shirts and hoodies to notebooks and AirPods. Rachel Measell, the campus store manager, has helped provide some numbers from the bookstore. There are, naturally, a lot of numbers involved with the bookstore. This week will cover a lot of spring semester numbers. Those numbers may turn out to be higher than…

    Three incredible classics for you to give a look

    Republished from Barkley’s Book Recs, March 3, 2023. What crosses your mind when someone says the word “classics”? For me, it’s books like Pride and Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird, Jane Eyre and Moby Dick. The classics are the books you hear about all the time, that you probably read in school at least once and that your parents or grandparents probably have on their bookshelf or somewhere in their house. They’re classics for a reason, though. They have stood the test of time, and they are ridiculously good. It’s hard for me to pick my top three books or series every post, but picking my top three classics was especially so. I…

    Behind the curtain with Hello Darling — a band with origins as Lipscomb freshmen

    You never know what might come out of Lipscomb’s music ensemble classes. The Nashville-based alternative folk band Hello Darling just happens to be one of those things. The band was born when a group of five musically talented people wound up thrown together in an ensemble as freshmen and discovered they all shared a passion for good music. Hello Darling comprises juniors Patrick Armould and Grace Russell, who share lead vocals; junior Amber Sawyer on bass; senior Riley O’Donnell on drums; and senior Noah Haggard on lead guitar. They come from different parts of the country and have different majors, musical tastes and backgrounds, but they found common ground through…
