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.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not looking for off-campus housing options, so I couldn't accurately rate how well my school is doing in this category.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't go off campus to eat.

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.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a party person, so I honestly have no idea where one could or could not find parties on campus.

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.

College Junior

Scholarships: Covenant is awesome with helping students find aid to attend school.

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

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: The school does not have any Greek sororities or sororities of any kind

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.
