Carson-Newman University Reviews
I came to Carson Newman university in the summer of last year for football, As a freshman in college. My experience here kind of felt like back home, From high school. I went to a boarding military school eight minutes from my house. I was a day student though. I’ve had friends from all over the world. Kind of like at Carson Newman university. Both small schools. I chose Carson Newman because I didn’t want to be just a number. I wanted to be known. I am from Florida so the weather is a lot different my first year as a freshman in college I got to see snow! It is a little colder here but it wasn’t too bad. I missed my family, I was also busy with football, friends, class work and homework. The time when by fast. My overall experience Was great! I will be back in July for football and my sophomore year!

The environment is suitable for learning. Just remember to try to get involved! The best time to get out of your comfort zone is in college.
Outstanding school, great support system! The advisors genuinely care about their students and will do whatever they need to help them succeed.
