What Students Are Saying

3.64 Average Rating
It's a full-blown University of Christians, yet with an open liberal arts understanding and atmosphere with a true affection of caring for each student. Every professor can remember the students name and can become his or her mentor. It's a college with a friendly staff and student body.
Muchael from Oliver Springs, TN
Carson-Newman is a place where students are not a number; they are part of the family. It is small, so students have the opportunity to become really involved in campus life and in classes.
Love it here!!!
