Cumberland University fits perfect for my situation. I was looking for an opportunity to play baseball at an elite level, and I found exactly what I was looking for. Cumberland is an excellent school. It has the benefits of going to a university but since it is not very populated, it provides you with great opportunities for personal relationships with friends, coaches, deans, and professors. My overall experience at Cumberland University has been fantastic.

I attended Cumberland University mostly due to their TN Promise eligibility; however, the school itself is actually a wonderful place, and the bonuses(such as free tutoring, the several spots to relax, etc.) are surprisingly nice. I'd certainly recommend Cumberland as the place to go, especially if you're going to be using the TN Promise.
The campus is beautiful. Everyone on campus I have met so far has been so kind and helpful. The campus is very close to my home, too. It will be so convenient when I start college. I have not gotten to meet any professors yet, but my co-workers that go to Cumberland University say the professors are wonderful. The financial aid office has been extremely helpful, too.
