Well for starters there isn't really much to do here. The college is close by to everything, all of the restaurants, and only 15-20 minute away from Chattanooga, Tennessee. The beginning of fall semester they have what is called Welcome Week, which is kind of fun. My favorite class for the first semester was Sociology and for the second semester is Biology.. Both of my professors are amazing with teaching. They are cool people and when they teach, it's not in a monotone voice that would put anybody to sleep. Tips for prospective students: when you get accepted, DO NOT wait until the last minute to register for classes. You WILL get stuck with 8:00 am classes. I can guarantee you that..

Overall i have had a good experience at the college. The only troubles i have had are with the financial aid and business offices. Otherwise it is a very pleasant place to be. There are nice people and happy and willing to teach professors.
