4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We're on the top of a mountain so we're probably not gonna get a lot of visits from terrorists or serial killers. So we don't have front check-in desks like universities in cities - technically someone could wait till a student with their card came by and just walk into one of the dorms. Overall, its a very safe environment because its so small, there's such a strong sense of community, and the majority of people strive to live their lives according to biblical standards of morality. Everyone has to sign a contract that says they won't drink or have sex while a student at Covenant, so that makes issues of sexual assault far less common on our campus than on most.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors are extremely approachable and invested in you as a student and as a person. The average class sizes are very small, which is conducive to this. There are some truly amazing professors here that I feel so fortunate to be able to work with and learn from. There are a few that aren't very willing to challenge their own views, and that is very frustrating.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The two top statistical contributors to post-graduate career success, or getting a job in the field you want, are substantive connection with a professor and in-feild experience (internships). Covenant guarantees the former and makes the latter very accessible. For some majors, you need an internship in order to graduate. Graduates from Covenant usually end up with great jobs in their field.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There's a good deal of housing options, except everyone has to dorm on campus their first year, there is very limited space in student apartments (which are kind of run down but a cheaper option), and you can only move off campus (way cheaper) if you're a senior by credit or 23 years old. The resident community is on each hall and of each building is definitely a distinctive. Each building has its own culture and many halls have legacies (historical prank feuds between Catacombs and Ghetto).

Athletics: We're only a D3 school but people do get excited about our varsity teams. It's a very balanced, enlivening spirit. Intramurals are also very popular and a lot of fun.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school has a very specific target market -- mostly people from the Reformed Christian tradition. This does contribute a lot to campus culture, both positively and negatively. If you like faith integration, it is great for you. Covenant also has a lot of really overqualified professors who teach here because they feel called to invest in the lives of the younger Christian generation. That said, different departments are certainly stronger than others. I'm from a northeastern city, so my personal hang-ups with Covenant are the lack of diversity (there are a good deal of missionary kids and international students, but I'm used to being the only white kid in my friend group, and it is definitely majority white, mostly southern conservative, all Christian, here), the institutional resistance to change (the faculty is very supportive and progressive, but the board of directors and far-ups are all old white men), and just the environment of living at the top of a mountain at a conservative Christian school with a 1,000-student campus is not my personal element. It is certainly paradise for some kids. My brother loved it. Most of the people here absolutely love it. Also, I'm trying to triple major so I have more beef with the policies and systems set in place than most students who aren't challenging the system as much.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: While students rally behind our sports teams, the teams themselves are mediocre in general.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While there are a number of educational reasons I enjoy my school, the community aspect of it has made my college experience so unique and valuable.

2 College Freshman

Academics: The core requirement includes religious classes, which in the real world provide no use.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a lot of white people and then a few people from all over the place.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is basically no access to drugs.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have heard of some reports such as window smashings and money being stolen, which I find uncommon for a school like Covenant where if somebody curses many of his/her peers will freak out.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If you want to feel like you are going to college, don't come here. The large majority of kids were homeschooled/private-schooled kids who don't know how to interact with one another. The professors are supposedly the highest they can be (doctorate degrees) in their fields but many times are hard to understand.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Nobody I have talked to know what Covenant College is. Covenant will try to persuade you to attend the college by saying that Chattanooga is just down the mountain, but in reality Chattanooga (which is awesome) is roughly 25 minutes away. Even in Chattanooga the people I have talked to view Covenant students as weird. I assume if you are looking for a job within the PCA a degree from Covenant would do you good.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I had to move dorms due to construction that was going on. Students in Carter are forced to leave their rooms @ 8:30 in the morning and cannot enter until they are allowed to do so. The school turns the air conditioning off at times and dorms become extremely hot.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: For a Division 3 school, the athletics are ok. The basketball program is entertaining to watch, and the baseball program has a nice field. Other than that there isn't really anything interesting.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being on top of a mountain, there is nothing within 20 minutes of the college. The food is disgusting, the core requirements are ridiculous, and the mandatory chapel is terrible. If you want to go to an actual college don't come here. The students are very weird, and they try to shove their religious views down your throat.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Nothing major to worry about in terms of health or safety on campus. It is a safe place and everyone is on the same page regarding moral issues and hold each other accountable. This seems to help a good bit.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Courses are good and Professors are very helpful and caring. They sincerely want their students to succeed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The alumni network is very strong. Job prospects within that network are great. Chattanooga and surrounding areas specifically. Outside of that it might be harder since it is a smaller school and not as well known. Regardless, it is a great education and prepares student well for future career opportunities.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: The residence life experience is phenomenal. The RA staff and res life staff are just incredible people who really are about students.

4 College Junior

Athletics: As a varsity golfer- I can say with confidence that the athletic facilities are well done. The training staff is pretty helpful and the facilities are nice, especially the soccer and baseball facilities. The golf course is nice as well. Exercise facilities include four basketball courts, new tennis courts, and some great intramural facilities. Some of the exercise equipment could use an update (some of it is fairly new though). Coaches are helpful and challenge players. They really care for their players.

The teams do well in the conference too. Winning a number of conference titles in the last few years. Student support for varsity teams is definitely notable. People come out and cheer for their friends and classmates.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Covenant is a very academically challenging school. I feel pushed and challenged in my studies by the on campus community, and by the professors. It is a great environment. Professors really do care about your studies and future, and want to assist you in whatever way they can. Chapels are informative and often interesting. Classes are great for the most part. Professors don't often make use of TA's, and teach their own classes. Because of this, not a lot of research is being done, which is one of the school's shortcomings. Research is done, just not a ton of it. The positive is that with small class sizes, you get to know the professors who teach the classes. Almost all of the professors i've taken have been outstanding people.

Community/residence life on campus is phenomenal. RA staff and community coordinators do a great job of facilitating great relationships and a fun environment. I honestly can't say enough about how good the res. life staff is!

The campus is beautiful as well. Looking from my dorm window I can see the lights of Chattanooga at night, and mountains beyond during the day. Sunrises and sunsets from the windows of the academic buildings and dining hall are second to none. It really is a beautiful campus, and rightly earns its ranking as the #1 most beautiful christian school.

Health & Safety: The mountain is not really in the middle of a big city so that helps it be safe and the campus security is good

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like the small class sizes
