April 29, 2013 - Harrogate, Tennessee — Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) has received a grant from the Enterprise Holdings Foundation to help fund High Adventure programming. The Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the company that operates the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands.

“The University is pleased to have the support of the Enterprise Holdings Foundation,” LMU President B. James Dawson said. “This grant helps us provide our students with a full and enriched student experience.”

The $3,000 grant will be used for updates to the popular High Adventure bicycle loan program, giving LMU the means to purchase additional bikes and cover maintenance costs on the current fleet of 20 bicycles. Additionally, funds will be used to upgrade camping and hiking equipment. The bike loan program, which was rolled out in August 2012, offers students, faculty and staff the opportunity to check out mountain bikes and cruisers for up to 24 hours at a time at no cost.

The bike check-out program is available on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Student Center. The bikes are located on the Greek Patio at the front of the building in a high-security, high-capacity bike hub. A campus ID is required for check-out at Dishner Hall, room 104. The cyclist receives a key to unlock the bike of their choosing. Bicycles may be checked out for a 24-hour period.

LMU has been a recipient of an Enterprise Holdings Foundation grant for three years. Past funds have assisted with other High Adventure initiatives including the purchase of tents and back-packing equipment. The High Adventure Series strives to provide quality outdoor recreation and leadership development for the entire campus community at LMU.

Lincoln Memorial University is a values-based learning community dedicated to providing educational experiences in the liberal arts and professional studies. The main campus is located in Harrogate, Tennessee. For more information about the undergraduate and graduate programs available at LMU, contact the Office of Admissions at 423-869-6280 or e-mail at
