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!
Very small christian college located on a mountain top. The doctrine & theology is very solid and strongly focused on. So it is a great school if you are looking to get into ministry. Besides that, they are outdated and behind the times. There wasn't a single career/job fair in the 4 years I attended. The school isn't very connected in the area (isolated on mountain). The career center will help you set up resume and LinkedIn account, other than that the connections are limited. Some of the concentrations, like marketing, were very outdated and waste of time. They didnt even have an online portal to check grades and assignments (this was 2012 - 2016). A lot of the professors and faculty don't support the athletic program. So if you are looking for a very small, unique community, at an expensive price, or if you were home schooled, it could be a great fit. If not, I wouldn't waste your time looking here.
