Am learning a lot
I have learned so many things in Toccoa Falls College; how to interact with other people with different point of views, how to be a better christian, and how to succeed in life education.
Am enjoying being here
I have always dreamed of being in a place such as Toccoa Falls College. And I have met several nice people there too.
Bang for the buck
It is very expensive, although, I really love TFC.

Toccoa Falls College is a wonderful place to go to college with a great environment. The teachers get to know you on a personal level and are willing to level themselves with the students through their experiences. The education you receive is solid and is very useful for the rest of your career.
Tips for prospective students
Don't touch the bells on campus, they have stories behind them (superstitious).
Get to know your professors they want to help you.
Get involved with campus activities.
Academic Rigor
Academic rigor at Toccoa allows you to challenge yourself and have a steady environment to learn with helpful professors.
Dorm Life
Dorm life could not be better getting to know your brothers and sisters in Christ while having fun at the same time.
Food and Dining
the food could be better but it is a great chance to hang out with friends and just talk.
What to do for fun
there are many things to do for fun such as go to the campus coffee shop, play sports on the intramural field, playing in the gym as well as visiting the falls or hiking in the woods.
Bang for the buck
this college is definitely worth the price. It is a little pricier than other colleges but also makes the effort to make it affordable.

There are two bells if you touch one it means you will soon get married. The other means you will soon be pregnant. We also have a waterfall taller than Niagara falls.
Great for these types of students
Anyone who has a relationship with Christ.
Clubs and Activities
there are plenty of clubs and activities to join and there are always new ones popping out of nowhere. Anything from martial arts to international students club.
Greek Life
None

Campus safety is pretty safe. we have our own security team who do their best to keep us safe.

Bang for the buck

Toccoa's a great place to get away from the hurry and scurry of life and focus on God, fellowship, and academics. It's only 1.5 hours from Atlanta and an hour from Greenville, SC, so you can still get to civilization when you want it! Great professors, good fellowship, and a beautiful campus tucked into the foothills of the Appalachian mountains make this a great option for college.
Tips for prospective students
Be authentic. A lot of places will tell you to try to impress the school, but at Toccoa authenticity, sincerity, and integrity is valued. The school seeks to develop character with intellect, but character is the more important of the two.
Academic Rigor
I expected college to be more difficult. It's not necessarily easy, per say, but if you listen in class, take notes, turn in assignments on time, and study for your tests, you'll make A's or B+'s every time. The professors here are great (for the most part) and are very reasonable.
Dorm Life
Every dorm on campus is different. Underclassmen girls live in either Fant or LeTourneau Hall (both of which have their advantages and disadvantages) while guys live in Forrest Hall. Upperclassmen can choose to live in the Terraces and Cottages, which are smaller dorms. The cottages are actual houses - usually reserved for seniors only.
Food and Dining
I've had worse food, but I've also had better. Our food supplier is Aramark, and they have some really stellar food on occasion - especially good cultural food.. but for the most part it's pretty average.
What to do for fun
Toccoa is a small town, so there's not much of a social scene. I love hiking, so when I have spare time I hike EVERYWHERE. There are supposedly 14 waterfalls on the campus (a large part of the campus is woods; only 1/10 of it is buildings); I have found 5 of these waterfalls. So that's great if you like the outdoors. If you don't like the outdoors... well, we're only 40 minutes from Commerce, which has great shopping, 1.5 hours from Atlanta, which has EVERYTHING, 1 hour from Greenville if you don't like Atlanta, and 30 minutes from Helen, which is a precious german tourist attraction.
Bang for the buck
It's about $23,000 but the school does give you some nice scholarships. If you maintain a 3.5 or above, you'll get $7500 a year. There are several other scholarships that you can receive, and frankly, money's not a big deal for God so He will provide if He wants you here. That said, for the quality of teaching, it's not a bad price - and since its a small school, the professors all know you by name and care about your personal life. It's not uncommon for a professor to invite a class to his/her house for a cookout or movie.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Umm.. The only one I know about is that when students of the World Missions Department graduate, they walk across the stage barefoot - in reference to Romans 10:15 - And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, 'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!'
Great for these types of students
Great for students who want a small, personal, atmosphere, like the outdoors, and want to authentically grow in their Christian walk.
Clubs and Activities
There are a few clubs on campus (Drama club is great! There's also a martial arts club, an outdoors club, I'm not really sure what else...). The best part, though, are the diverse student ministries.
Greek Life
HA! There is none. No greek here. Unless you're taking New Testament Greek, but.. I don't think that's what the review was getting at.
Campus Safety
The only safety issues are in the woods on and around the campus: we do have legit wildlife here. So watch out for bears and panthers if you're on a trail at dusk and dawn, and don't hike Dead Man's Trail at night alone. Other than that... occasionally this random guy will run around campus with a bigfoot mask.. but he's not really a safety threat.
