I love the close knit community feel of the campus. The campus itself is beautiful and you can walk to all your classes! The professors there really care about their students. I have been able to ask professors about future career decisions and get helpful answers! The campus atmosphere is warm and friendly and that welcoming feel has made it like my second home. If you choose University of the Cumberlands, you will not be disappointed.

University of the Cumberlands has a beautiful campus, the professors are extremely nice and the students make you feel at home. The athletics are great and I love how everyone supports all teams!
University of the Cumberlands initially made my list to consider based on the cost and the draw of online classes (helping me spend more time with my family). But as I researched the program and spoke to previous students, I was impressed by the quality of the education and the teaching. And it has not disappointed! It is a great schedule for someone who is working and has a family, and the coursework and teaching is thorough. I feel prepared for my field! ”
