3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't tend to be around those that are involved in sports, so to some degree this question just doesn't apply to me. Likewise, our school doesn't have many sport options, so I don't think we focus on sports as much as the average state school.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The rules are enforced well here, mainly because I believe that many of the students would not want to break the rules, anyway.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I could've used more financial aid, but I'm sure what they could have done better.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I love having healthy choices with all of the various vegetables, and I know the cooks genuinely try to feed the students well. My biggest complaint would be the lack of variety with fruit (I really miss strawberries), but at the same time I know how expensive healthier foods can get, so I can't really blame them. The rice and eggs I find a bit disappointing, but otherwise I don't really have a problem with the rest of the food.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: While there are struggles with living roughly 2,000 from my family, ultimately I am grateful to be living on campus. I have already grown so much by learning how to manage life without my family, but also on how to trust those around me when I need help, such as from my roommates. Community, while not perfect, is so much better here than I would have received if I had gone to another school near home, and I am very glad to not have to use a community bathroom! I am not in the correct dorm building, but that is more my fault than those that placed me here on my recommendation; even so the dorm and its community has already done much for me in my own personal growth physically, emotionally, and even spiritually.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Chattanooga is 15 minutes away with many options

5 College Junior

Local Area: We're right next to Chattanooga !

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Covenant does not have a Greek Life.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: I'm actually not a partier but our school has many social events

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: There are many options and a variety of choices in the great hall. The price is not bad and they have many meal plans depending on ones budget .

5 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Through loans, scholarships, and grants things worked out well. I was new to school and knew nothing of financial aid. Things worked out well and the financial aid office was very helpful my first couple of years

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The courses were rated quite accurately with the upper level classes requiring an increase in study hours and focus. The professors were helpful, and yet there is an unspoken idea that one should know the difficulty of classes one is signed up for. The class size varied depending on if it was a lab, lecture, and if computers was necessary.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: There is not much on the mountain unless you are a runner, and/or enjoy the outdoors. Down the mountain has quite the selection of bars, restaurants, and beautiful scenery. There are bridges, many local stores and shops, as well as a park by the river.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I played volleyball all four years and got scholarships with because of it. Many people attended the sports events, especially soccer and basketball games. There are many sports fields and areas for athletes to practice

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: My major was biology. Some classes were more difficult than others but there were many opportunities to learn through labs and trips in the community. There was a good variety of classes ranging from comparative anatomy to ecology, and a variety of biological specialties. There are no criteria for admission or abnormal application process.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I lived off campus for a couple months. The rent was cheap, the landlords were helpful, the house was about what you could expect in terms of quality for the price. The parking was ample and there was not a lot of ground maintenance necessary

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: I spent more time with the students more academically inclined, so i didn't find as many party scenes

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not done an internship, but I have had friends who have truly enjoyed and grown from their experiences. There are programs all over the world that are able to be partnered with Covenant. They work very hard here to ensure that your experience will not only give you practical experience, but that you enjoy it. Covenant will pay for certain internships and programs, but it depends on your specific major.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: All students that come to Covenant must first sign a contract agreeing to certain standards of conduct. These are well known before and are then enforced throughout the year and on the halls. The administration is very accessible and never wants to see you get into any sort of trouble, understanding that people do make mistakes; however, there are expectations of each student that are met in their behavior. The school policies are meant to keep Covenant truly as a Christian foundation. This includes having open hall hours for girls going into boys halls and vice versa. These policies also help to continue the hall tradition that may have been lost if the members of the halls were spending all of their time with the opposite gender.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are full of phenomenal community and always have events and fun activities going on. Carter Hall was an old hotel built in the 1920's and is the hub of all activity at Covenant. The Great Hall is located in this building and the best hall traditions come from Carter because it is the oldest. This makes Carter the most conveniently located building on campus. There are 3 other dorm buildings that each have their own distinct character and hall traditions. Being on a hall of girls or boys becomes a part of social life here, and many of your friends would be on your hall and right next to you. Here hall community is very strongly encouraged and it is a large tool for ministry as well. The housing process was easy as you were able to give preference to which hall you would like.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The academic excellence and integrity here is truly unbelievable and unique. About 95% of the professors here hold doctorates in their field. Each is dedicated to trusting in Jesus and showing their students how to do the same, whether that is through teaching their subject field or through how they treat their students. Because there is such a small student-teacher ratio, you are truly able to get to know your professors. You are able to walk into their offices and discuss with them questions from class or questions about a paper and they delight in helping you. It is a rigorous environment to be in; much is expected out of you and there are many pages of reading and papers to read. All of this helps to reiterate what you have learned in the lectures. There are math and writing centers available to assist those who would like extra help in those areas, or just need someone to read over their paper to determine if it is able to be turned into class.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus. It may be because it is small, but I trust each student immensely and that is reciprocated continually throughout the campus. We are able to leave our belongings in cubbies outside of our main dining area, The Great Hall, and never feel that anyone will take them. I can think of one time last year where some money was taken from a room and that greatly shocked the community. There are security officers that patrol buildings at night and if you ever want a ride back from a long walk to some of the parking lots, you can easily access an officer or student employee on duty to help bring you to your dorm building. I generally feel extremely safe on campus, even if I am walking around alone at night.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are many varsity and junior varsity sports that are available to be involved in. New tennis courts were just added, as well as a new gym floor, free weight room, and intramural field. There are 2 full regulation soccer fields that host over 1,000 fans sometimes, especially during Homecoming events. Soccer is the big sport here and the fans love to watch it as well. School spirit and morale is very high, with students wearing Covenant apparel each day, whether they are supporting soccer, basketball, or volleyball. Many students are involved in intercollegiate sports, nearly 1/3 of the student population. Many students become fans as they fill the gym or the stadium and watch their friends participate. Our soccer field is one of the best in the Southeast, with a stunning view of the sunset right behind it.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Covenant is a Christian school through and through. Students love to dress warmly for the cold weather, with flannel and boots, or tights and classic wing tip type shoes. Danskos are very popular here among the ladies. Many students are interested in sports, reading, hiking, climbing, watching the sunset, and fellowshipping with one another. Their social life often involves studying, either down the mountain or in the library on a week day and having lots of fun and relaxing from Friday night until Monday morning. There are many different activities that are available in Chattanooga, such as the Hunter art museum or the Aquarium. We have the longest walking bridge, and across the Tennessee river, there is a park and more fun and small shops. Relationships here are highly valued and respected, taken with care and most often with integrity. Students love to ask each other deep questions and also love to participate in intramural sports.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Chattanooga is right down the road, filled with many choices of where to dine and what to choose. The city is large enough to find a new restaurant, coffee shop, or hole-in-the -wall place. There are coffee shops to study with relaxing and warm atmospheres and there are classic "college student" places that allow quick service, good food, and a cheap price. One of my favorites is called the Yellow Deli, which is open 24 hours a day for 5 days a week. It is a unique and beautiful structure with wooden tables and railings, a spiral staircase, a pulley system, and murals splashed on the walls. There you can choose from a variety of drinks, hot or cold, such as Chai and Mate.
