Older buildings, but smaller classes. I had issues with professors cancelling classes an hour prior to class start, and I was a commuter that drove over an hour each way so this was very inconvenient for me. The school is very focused on athletics, but expect their students to maintain their grades. Overall, I would recommend to anyone wanting smaller class sizes with great professors!

Tennessee Wesleyan is an interesting place. Interesting being good and bad, but what kind of place doesn't have both good and bad. Goods being: small town, kind/ loving students and staff, academics focus in on your personal, and small campus. Bad being: small town (not a lot to do) and maintenance staff are small (which means if you don't have something urgent it might not get done for a week or two). But all around the campus is an amazing and unique place to become who you'll be.
I graduated from Pellissippi this May and it was bittersweet. Being a small campus with lots of students, the classes are sometimes big and sometimes small. I met many new people who are actually going with me to Nursing school in the fall and my professors at Pellissippi were amazing! I learned a lot about school, nursing, and life in general. My experience made me a well-rounded person and I am confident that I've been very well prepared for nursing school!
