It is a beautiful campus. The community and family feel is perfect, along with great academics. Student support services and the many extra-curricular activities provide so much for student success. I can't wait to be a Tusculum Pioneer full-time!

This is my first time at a 4 year University, and a lot of my classes started out online, but I have had a wonderful experience being a part of Tusculum. My teachers are always very hands on and engage very frequently with students. The instructors also respond very quickly when I email them with a question or a concern. I would recommend Tusculum College to anyone who desires an awesome and supportive college learning experience.
This is not really a liberal arts college. The sports, clubs, and other extracurriculars are sad. Professors are hit and miss. All of them are very nice, but a lot of them have unnecessary added responsibilities and/or teach classes on subjects that aren't quite in their wheelhouse. Campus security is also horribly unorganized and doesn't do much outside of giving you high parking tickets for reasons that are not always correct and taking forever to get to you to unlock your dorm room if you look yourself out. Their restrictions are very strange. The dorms are sub par. Many students are confused on what they need and the offices aren't much help. Plan on needing a car, there are no sidewalks going to many places, the school is separate from the rest of the town, there is a shuttle service but no one on campus really knows how it works or when it is running.
