This school has a very specific target market -- mostly people from the Reformed Christian tradition. This does contribute a lot to campus culture, both positively and negatively. If you like faith integration, it is great for you. Covenant also has a lot of really overqualified professors who teach here because they feel called to invest in the lives of the younger Christian generation. That said, different departments are certainly stronger than others. I'm from a northeastern city, so my personal hang-ups with Covenant are the lack of diversity (there are a good deal of missionary kids and international students, but I'm used to being the only white kid in my friend group, and it is definitely majority white, mostly southern conservative, all Christian, here), the institutional resistance to change (the faculty is very supportive and progressive, but the board of directors and far-ups are all old white men), and just the environment of living at the top of a mountain at a conservative Christian school with a 1,000-student campus is not my personal element. It is certainly paradise for some kids. My brother loved it. Most of the people here absolutely love it. Also, I'm trying to triple major so I have more beef with the policies and systems set in place than most students who aren't challenging the system as much.
