5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have never seen any bit of alcohol or drug use on campus, or off for that matter. I have no desire for any of it and feel no pressure to do it. Actually I don't know people who do abuse any of this but I suppose I have heard of some off campus houses that might drink some, I just don't care for it enough to pay any attention.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: Well I've never been to a party, bar/club, or anything of the kind but I believe they exist more in apartments. We have holiday parties such as for Easter, Christmas, or Valentines Day just within our own hall and those are really lovely. But they're not your stereotypical college parties.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Honestly my school is so accepting and loving of everyone. We have a lot of racial diversity and a wide variety of economic backgrounds. I don't hear much about politics but I'm sure there are differing views. The main thing is that the majority of people are Christians, where that be Presbyterian, Catholic, Episcopalian, ect., we are mostly Christian. And as far as sexual orientation goes, we accept anyone but we don't allow for someone to perform the actions of what is not biblical, whether that be a straight person, or a gay person.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Our campus is rather strict but it is a Christian college after all. There is no drinking or smoking and girls and guys are only allowed on each others' halls at specific times during the weekends. The thing is that it really allows people to be in a healthy community where people respect each other's space. It may seem strict at first but you get used to it and then it seems like nothing. Also there are many other stricter schools out there.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. The atmosphere is wonderful and I am surrounded by people who love me. It is an encouraging place that is in the middle of campus so getting places is simply. Living in my hall could be rough because it has the smallest rooms on campus but that doesn't bother me. The atmosphere is so worth it that I forget how small our halls' rooms are. Also all the halls on campus are really into community so there is never a dull weekend.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There are surprisingly many majors for the size of the school. It's not the best because it doesn't have everything but it can get you on the right track to getting what you need.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love this place. I would do it over in a heart beat, and I'm not even through it yet. I am not worried about finding a job because Covenant is really good about helping you on your way.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We live up on a mountain so nothing is directly near but the scenery is stunning. And it only takes about 15 minutes to get down the mountain where you can do all sorts of things such as shopping, eating, going to museums, and going to the theaters.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: This campus is the absolute most beautiful place on earth and although it may be cold at times, it is lovely. Even the fog is mesmerizing in an eerie way. We get sun, we get rain, we get fog, we get mist, we get snow, we get wind, and it is perfect!

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have fraternities or sororities so this all doesn't apply to my school.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The school is really good about giving out a lot of financial aid, but no matter how much you get, it is still expensive. They really worked with me to give me more so that I could come. They weren't difficult but super sweet about everything and I'm grateful for the assistance that allowed me to come here.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: You can't live off campus until senior year but that's one of the positive unique things about Covenant. Underclassmen can live in the on campus apartments but they aren't as nice as dorms, they're just cheaper. The seniors however can live anywhere really so they can go scout out really nice places to stay if they have that desire. The possibilities are wonderful.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics really are great. Varsity men's soccer is a big deal and is widely attended. Tennis, soccer, volleyball, cross-country, basketball, softball, baseball, they are all talked about and attended/supported very well. Our gym and workout room is really nice to and it's not just for the athletes, but anyone who attends or works at the school.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You can't live off campus until Senior year.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Although there aren't many dining options on the mountain, other than a cafe and Starbucks, Chattanooga has a rich variety of options.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Covenant has a strict policy against drug and alcohol use. Even adults over the age of 21 are not allowed to drink on or around campus during the school year. There is a party scene, but it's limited to certain groups of friends and is not widely acknowledged.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Every residence hall and academic building, in addition to the library, has a computer lab and printer.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Covenant is an interesting mix. Almost everyone is a professing Christian, with a majority having been raised in the reformed tradition, and a lot of kids are from homeschool/Christian school backgrounds and so are fairly conservative. Covenant students are unique in style. I've never been anywhere else with so many flannel-sporting students, and it's safe to say that the study body is a combination of hipster and preppy. Because Covenant is such a small school, when a couple is "talking," "dating," or "officially boyfriend/girlfriend," everyone knows it. Much fun is made about "lobby couples" and "Blink dates" (at our school coffee/snack shop), but there isn't a lot of casual dating, although the old adage of "ring by spring" somehow still comes true for upperclassmen.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Covenant is only a few minutes away from Chattanooga, which is an amazing city, but unless you have a car or are friends with people who do, the campus itself feels very quiet and isolated. There isn't much to do on campus unless you can entertain yourself.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Covenant is so isolated up on top of the mountain (which is a safe place anyway) that even though security isn't highly visible, I never feel uncomfortable or nervous walking alone, even late at night.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's way too restrictive. Guys and girls can't hang out in dorms except for certain hours on weekends. There's some good community, but it's kind of depends on which hall you live on.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Well, you can't live off-campus until senior year, but there are a few good neighborhoods with inexpensive housing that aren't unsafe and are reliable.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are some really cool people, but there are also some really awkward or rude people. It's a mixed bag.

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There IS no night life. There's absolutely nothing to but go to walmart or Taco Bell or something boring like that.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: It's incredibly difficult. The weight of classes, homework, chapel, and various expected activities is too heavy and it's hard to stay positive.
