    I attended HC and absolutely loved it! I graduated from HC with a BS degree and felt very prepared to go into grad school. I finished my Master's degree in only one year and I am now pursuing my PhD.

    Campus Safety

    Normal safe for a small college.

    Clubs and Activities

    Performing arts and intramurals.

    Great for these types of students

    Athletes and just regular students.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The school has put a lot of money in the performing arts and the theatre.

    Bang for the buck

    Hiwassee lowered tuition costs. Considering the personal attention you get, this is a great deal. You won't find a private Christian college for less. You know what is going to happen. There is going to be a big increase in the number of students. So I would say come now .

    What to do for fun

    I hang out with my baseball buds. Play intramurals. Go to basketball games. Go to volleyball games.

    Food and Dining

    Food at the cafÃ? is ok. For a small town, there are a bunch of great places to eat. Have every fast food chain.

    Dorm Life

    The women's dorms are much nicer than the men's. But I got an apartment. I lived in a dorm in my previous college. But wanted get an apartment this year.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are medium with the degree of difficulty. What really helps, especially if you are a student athlete, is the assistance you will receive from your professors. They know how many hours you put in. So they help you stay up with your class work, labs, etc.. They also have a couple of industry specific programs.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you look really good at where you want to go as a freshman. It's easier to look first and ask questions than have to transfer. (Like I did.)

    In three sentences

    A small college of foothills of Great Smokey Mountains. The faculty and staff care about every single person. Bachelors degree is a liberal arts degree. Or you can use the transfer agreement Hiwassee has with other colleges. You know how many colleges claim you will get personal attention. You really will here.
