    Tusculum College is a really small school in an even smaller town. Everyone knows everyone...which can be good and bad. The school tries to garner a sense of community in its students, since its so small. Don't come here if you like the city, you'll be disappointed at how little the town has to offer. Bigger cities like Johnson City and Knoxville aren't far away though so you can still have fun on the weekends. The college tries to schedule fun stuff to do on campus, but they fall short sometimes. I live in the Honor's House, so I don't know about what dorm life is like. I've heard that some crazy stuff goes on in the Freshman dorm, Katherine Hall.

    I love the mountains! The cafeteria and several of the dorms overlook them and it is incredible to watch them change each season. Greeneville itself is quiet, but you can find some really cool hole-in-the-wall type places to shop or hang out. And if you want something a little bigger, Johnson City is only thirty minutes away. As far as campus life, there is so much to get involved in at Tusculum. There is an anime club, a knitting club, several Christian clubs, a New Age club, and LGBT society, and many more. There are also clubs for specific majors as well as honors societies for a few of them.

    I love all my new friends here at Tusculum. It is really easy to bond with people here. It is not a small or large college. It is just right. All the staff and faculty are here to help you. I have never had any trouble with any students or teachers. The faculty here is awesome. They are so kind and considerate. There are many varieties of clubs here. It is so easy to make friends and find what club suits your needs. Of course there are plenty of sports related activities. The student life coordinators plan plenty of activities for the students to enjoy. The House I live in is awesome. I have made friends with everyone in my house. There are also other houses and residence halls that students live in. It is wonderful to be here.
