LU 1203 - Lipscomb Experience (3)

This introduction to university-level critical thinking and cultural engagement is required during the first semester at Lipscomb for all first-year students. Discussion-oriented, the Lipscomb Experience introduces students to the intellectual endeavor of liberal arts education from a Christian perspective in small group settings designed to develop mentoring relationships, to provoke important questions, and to facilitate thoughtful discussion. While Lipscomb Experience courses engage unique topics examined from multiple perspectives, each course also introduces students to a common set of transferrable skills. The course facilitates student engagement with fellow students, the university, and the local and global community; essential college-level research and information literacy skills; and the habits of rigorous study, intellectual growth, and lifelong learning. Students may not withdraw from the course unless they are withdrawing from the university. This course is a LIGHT-designated course and may satisfy the SALT Tier II requirement. Instructors may assign a grade of “NC” (no credit) to diligent student who nevertheless fail to earn a “C.” However, instructors reserve the right to assign an “F” when, in their opinion, students do not demonstrate satisfactory effort. Students who do not earn a “C” in LU 1203 must retake the course the subsequent spring semester. No AP, CLEP, or “Dual Enrollment” credit is accepted for this course./
