Truett McConnell University allows for many students to earn their degree while also progressing in their faith. The Christian background at Truett McConnell University allows students to feel comfortable sharing their faith with friends and family. Truett McConnell University also has various sports that are great competitors in the Appalachian Athletic Conference of the NAIA. I personally play baseball and the group of guys that I play with are all great Christian men. Something the baseball team plans on doing is to work in missions independently sharing our faith with others. Truett McConnell University is a great place to go if you are trying to find yourself and God.

It’s a school full of opportunity. A Christian belief where we all believe there is only One true God but no judgement for a person who is an atheist. The school is full of very athletic students who are also scholars students and respect is earned and given to each and every student.

Elizabeth - 11/08/2021

It's a great school! Although I have only visited the school itself twice, I have taken twenty-nine dual enrollment courses with Truett. The faculty has been very accessible and have been extremely encouraging to me. Their courses are great and my professors, specifically some of them, have been very caring and kind.

Christianna - 10/24/2020
