Abby - 06/10/2024

Covenant College is a strong Christian college that not only looks to better prepare students for the future through their academics, but also through a growth in their faith. I know that when I attend, I will not only learn what is necessary in my classes, but I will be discipled and encouraged to walk closer with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is largely for this reason that I have chosen Covenant College.

Emily - 02/12/2023

Covenant College is a private Christian school that truly puts Christ first. From chapel to dorm life, how to be a Christian in this sinful world is eloquently discussed. Most classes are under 25 students so you get to have personal relationships with those teaching you. The views are amazing too. It's definitely one to check out if you're looking for a small Christian school that truly cares about you.

JC - 05/14/2020

The most unique quality about Covenant college is it's location. It sits in a mountainous area and borders two states. The campus buildings is easily accessible, the tree lined path makes surroundings very peaceful and supportive to the academic mindset.

Briana - 11/04/2018

It is a beautiful campus with a gorgeous view of Chattanooga. There are many tourists attractions nearby that give students a chance to explore and experience the culture at the college and the surrounding city. There is also a wide variety of students. Those students interact with each other and other staff daily. It has an amazing atmosphere and is a wonderful college to attend.
