    I love Covenant! When deciding where to go to college, I knew I wanted to be somewhere that aligned with my values and would help me to live according to the calling I have received from Christ. Though not a perfect school, Covenant has been the perfect fit for me! The classes are interesting and engaging, the professors are phenomenal and caring, and the people are genuine and kind. I love being on campus (which is beautiful... think: mountains). Chattanooga is about fifteen minutes away, too, which is awesome because it has a hip downtown area to explore.

    Very welcoming environment from faculty as well as fellow students. your first week of orientation is a blast with learning more about the school , meeting your new peers, and having fun together. The curriculum is a beautiful blend of useful, real world knowledge and the Christian faith. The services are amazing, the food is okay, and the campus itself is drop-dead gorgeous. Beautiful view of Chattanooga. Every hall has it's own community and gets very competitive and can cause fun trouble. The college has a conduct and standards that every student is expected to follow, but it's for the best. You never feel on your own in a place like this (even if you're and introvert). Probably the best college experience I could've asked for. I truly believe that God is helping to guide me on my path he intends for me through this school.
    Wonderful admissions team. Very helpful and intentional. Beautiful campus and interesting professors. However, very expensive!
