What Students Are Saying

Cumberland University has, I think, the best faculty and staff. They answer every question you have and do it to the best of their ability. Cumberland is a 10 on my scale, best choice of schooling for me.
Brittany from Lebonon, TN
Best school in the Middle Tennessee area that has small classes, high educational standards, and a friendly atmosphere. The professors at Cumberland will go the extra 20 miles to help you with anything, let that be in and out of the class room. The Athletic Department is by far the strongest and most diverse in the area.
