Enrollment at Lipscomb University has set an all-time record for the institution. A total of 2,662 students are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate classes, an increase of 107 from the previous record of 2,555, set in 1997, and 117 from last fall's enrollment of 2,545.

"We have a very large freshman class for the third consecutive year, which is the product of several factors," said Scott Gilmer, director of admissions. "We have expanded our student recruitment into a campus-wide effort involving not only our admissions team, but our faculty and staff as well. Many of our new students have mentioned how helpful the faculty has been in their decision to attend Lipscomb.

"We have also focused our efforts on students whose academic and spiritual goals suggested that they would most likely benefit from, and contribute to, the, spiritual, academic and social environments at Lipscomb," Gilmer said.

Lipscomb also enrolls 1,546 in its pre-kindergarten through grade 12 Campus School, for a total institutional enrollment of 4,208, also a record.

Lipscomb is the only area university, which also offers K-12 education. Lipscomb University offers more than 100 programs of study in 47 major areas leading to bachelor's degrees, and graduate programs in biblical studies, business administration, and education.
