The meticulous process of deciding on-campus dining options at Lipscomb
It can be difficult for your “everyday college student” to find reasonable eating options outside of their college campus. Restaurants can be expensive, and ordering food can add up just as easily. Fast food can be convenient but we set trade-off healthy eating practices for low cost and easy accessibility. Neither option is necessarily conducive for anyone that simply wants to eat a high-quality meal at a low cost and with low effort. This is why quality eating options on campus grounds are so important for any college or university. So what are some solutions to this? Is it possible for students to eat a high-quality meal for with low…

The Dugan legacy continues
Will Dugan is a freshman right-handed pitcher with an incredible legacy sitting on his shoulders. The Dugan name is on several framed jerseys, cleats, and award plaques scattered around campus. It’s even on the baseball field itself. That’s no coincidence. His grandfather Ken Dugan is a Lipscomb baseball giant as both a player and a coach, a 1987 Lipscomb Hall of Fame inductee, 1991 Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame inductee and 2022 National College Baseball Hall of Fame inductee.

Winter storms impact on Nashville plants
Last December brought the lighting of the green, but now all the evergreen on campus has turned brown and dead. Some may be wondering how this happened. Will the plants and trees revive themselves before spring? This past December a winter storm hit the midwest and parts of the south. From Dec. 21-26, temperatures dropped drastically and Tennessee even experienced a little snow. Following the drop in temperatures, the plants and evergreen shrubbery around campus and Nashville are more brown and dead looking than the usual winter lull. Mary Weber, the director of horticulture at Cheekwood, helped provide some insight into the impact the weather had on plants and gardens…
