Tusculum College Top Questions

Describe the students at your school.


My classmates always have a funny comparison to throw out to the teacher, but the questions and jokes are almost always related to the subject; however, for the rest of the time, they are content to listen and learn with you, and are usually willing to discuss the class after dismissal.


Curdious people, they will hold the doors and say goodmorning or help you with notes if you miss class one day.


Most of my classmates are very willing to make great grades and create study groups. Most also are kind and willing to help.


Most everyone in my classes is excited to be there getting their education, and we have formed friendships that have enabled us to help each other and provide support for one another.


My classroom is very diverse.


As an LGBT student, I never totally came out at Tusculum. It was made clear early on the administration wasn't exactly supportive of the issue. By my senior year, the environment had improved tremendously, holding public forums on LGBT issues and establishing a student org for the community and allies. Being a student at Tusculum is not glamorous. This is a locally known and respectable school, but if you want to someone to say, "OOO, you must be smart," when you tell someone where you go to school, then this is not the place for you. I'm getting my Master's at a nationally ranked school, and the atmosphere and prestige I feel at my new school was missing at Tusculum. You must know that Tusculum is where you want to be and that it is a good fit for you. It was actually a great fit for me for that period of my life. It nurtured me and allowed me to flourish. There was a great support network there.


Class sizes were amazing and good interaction between classmates


My classmates are very diverse. We have people from all racial and ethnic backgrounds. Tusculum students represent over 30 different countries, and many of them are fluent in more than one language
