    The students I am around are the best I could ask for. There are so many types of people that I am sure anyone can find friends. I have grown so much in m y time here and college life is the bomb. The guys on my hall have become my best friends, the college offers many intramural (casual) sports and games to play each week and there are over 100 clubs and organizations for people to choose among their interests for involvement and fellowship.

    I absolutely love Carson-Newman!! It has been such a great experience and I am so happy to be here! I have made some really awesome friends and memories that I would not trade for anything. There might not be a whole lot to do on campus or in the tiny town of Jefferson City but you can always find something to do; whether that be a movie night, random rides around time jamming out to music or just studying outside. I love that I can walk around campus and recognize just about everyone who passes by. It makes college feel more like home. I love that there are so many ways to get involved on our campus. There is something for just about every single person and the more involved you are the more fun you can have. Carson-Newman is a great place to be and I am super thankful to be here!!!!

    When I come back to the dorm after being away, I let out a sigh of relief, and when I go into a building, or walk around campus, or go to eat in the dining hall, there are tons of people that I know and love smiling at me and encouraging me. Even the people I don't know, the workers and maintenance staff and random people walking around are smiling and saying hello. It's been an amazing experience being part of campus and campus life, and living in the dorms with fellow sisters in Christ, and spending time with people off campus and on campus and growing up together.
