Chattanooga State is a great college for anyone. Most class sizes are small, and you get great one on one help from the professors. It is a great school for those coming right out of high school, because it has that small college feel.
Bethany from Dalton, GA
I love this school! It is perfect for those not sure about going to a large college, non-traditional students, and students who need a cheaper school to start at. I am happy with it almost completely!
Erinn from Chattanooga, TN
campus is nice and not to big so that you can not make your next classes. the science and technology wing is very comprehensive especially with the new addition of the wacker program. staff really tries to go above and beyond for those who really need assistance.
