TMC Description

Truett-McConnell College is a private, four-year Baptist university. Nestled in the small town of Cleveland, Georgia, Truett-McConnell provides an intimate undergraduate experience. It’s located just outside of the Chattahoochee National Forest, and is about 80 miles north of Atlanta.

As a Baptist college, Truett-McConnell’s academics emphasize the Christian life. The school offers bachelor’s degrees and minors in Christian Studies and World Missions, and many of its other degree programs are also based in Christianity. For example, the music department has concentrations for Church Music and Contemporary Worship, and the History program examines world history through a Christian lens.

The college’s World Missions Center sponsors mission trips both in the United States and throughout the world. Recent destinations have included India, Thailand, Ethiopia, and Amsterdam. The World Missions Center’s purpose is to give students the opportunity to spread the Gospel of Christ.

In 2011, Truett-McConnell completed the Miller Building, a residential and dining hall that houses nearly 200 students (nearly a third of the college’s enrollment). The building, which is the school’s largest project in 40 years, has been a huge enhancement for student life at Truett-McConnell.

I like the fact that the campus is small enough that the student know every one and feel comfortable being there. I remember open house freshman year. I really enjoyed helping my daughter move in. For the parents of freshman student always remember to call them or text them everyday. My daughter and her friends had a really hard time that first year living away from home. And also remember to send them lots of food and water they never seem to get enough. I always felt comfortable calling the school if I was worried about anything. They treated me with nothing but respect and kindness.
