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.

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

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers are great and for com dev they really help us find a required internship and give lots of guidance as to opportunities after college

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The community of the halls is great!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I think Covenant does a good job of having athletics but always making sure that Christ is at the center and not our own personal glory. I Waldo really like the fact that we not only have varsity teams, but we also have JV teams which really open up competitive sports to more of the student body.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really like the community, the small class size, the professors who genuinely care about me as a person, and the sincere desire to follow after Christ that is seen everyday on campus in a multitude of ways.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This college has been the best experience of my life. The community here is amazing. The students and professors are very caring.

Overall Experience: Covenant College is a prestigious college focused on providing students with a safe environment in which to learn. The school has a full staff of knowledgeable and accomplished professors, and the small student-to-professor ratio allows for much personal interaction. It is on top of a mountain, which provides beautiful views, great hiking, and something to brag about. It also, however, cuts off its body of Christians from the communities they should be serving in the nearby city of Chattanooga. Covenant has a feeling of being cut off from the rest of the world, a microcommunity. This can have a negative impact on the spiritual and, sometimes, mental health of the student body.

On the whole, however, Covenant College has been a wonderful community for me to have been a part of. I have enjoyed seeing the variation displayed in the lives of students, and yet seeing the Gospel tie them together. Students and teachers at Covenant are generally good, clean, and friendly. The campus is safe and cozy, as well as providing breathtaking views daily. I am glad to attend Covenant College.

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.

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.

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
