Carson-Newman University Reviews
Carson-Newman is such a special place; you could not choose a better institution! I have grown so much as a person during my time at CN. Carson-Newman professors and faculty are incredible and they prioritize your overall growth, your academic achievement, and your future success!
Carson-Newman is a wonderful Christian school that is like being surrounded by family. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. There is no other place I would rather be! The only thing I wish that could change is that they would offer the upper-level undergraduate classes more frequently so that the times would be more convenient. Other than that, it's great!
The school is not too big which in turn makes going to school less overwhelming. The teachers there really care about you and your performance in their classes! DO try and get involved around the school: athletics, clubs, programs anything is fun.
