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 Besides that, they are outdated and behind the times.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 Some of the concentrations, like marketing, were very outdated and waste of time.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.

Covenant is a small Christian, liberal arts Colllege located on a beautiful campus on Lookout Mountain. It is a wonderful school to attend. They truly love their student body and strive to engage in meaningful interaction with the students. It’s a really great school!
Covenant College is a private, liberal arts college seeking to provide adequate training, education and christian integration to students desiring to step into the professional world and make a difference. The education that the college provides is excellent and rigorous, the view is amazing, access to outdoors is spectacular, carter hall is gorgeous, but the facilities are just decent, food is sub par, but the people are worth getting to know.
