Travel Learning


The Lipscomb University alumni and friends travel program is back after its hiatus courtesy of the pandemic. Once again, alumni and friends can experience custom-designed, U.S.-based and/or global travel learning trips hosted by the university.

These trips typically include activities not generally available to the public, such as when a noted artist Lipscomb alumnus led a trip to the Northeast and opened doors to artists’ private studios and homes for our participants.

For information about the program, please contact Amy Hamar at or 615.966.6216. All travel learning space is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Travel - Jimmy the Cricket

Even if you have been multiple times, you have never experienced Natchez this way. Our tour guide, Mr. Jimmy the Cricket, provides an exclusive guide service with a behind-the-scenes tour experience that cannot be duplicated by anyone else. Cricket, who recently served as grand marshal of Mardi Gras, will escort us through his favorite places, and chances are you'll end up loving Natchez like he does.

USA Today recently ranked Natchez one of the top five small towns in the U.S. This riverboat town pre-dates New Orleans and has been under the control of the Indians, the French, the Spanish, the British and finally the American as well as Confederate governments. In 1860, this hamlet was home to more millionaires per capita and per square mile than any other city in America. As a result, more than 700 antebellum structures remain in this town that boasts a population of 15,000 that embodies graciousness and hospitality.

Trip Attractions.

Spend four nights of lodging in the lovely Natchez Grand Hotel overlooking the mighty Mississippi River, and the stay includes a full Southern breakfast buffet every morning to fuel our group. Enjoy excursions to historic sites that include plantations, a cemetery, a Presbyterian church, private home tours, gardens and Christmas shopping in the town's quaint stores of the antebellum district.
