I am a non-traditional Student. My husband, three children and I moved to TN so that I could earn my bachelors degree. I was worried about going to classes with students much younger than me. The students and professors exceeded my expectations of school. I felt welcomed and not at all uncomfortable from the very first class. My favorite experience was the day I was having a horrible morning and was so close to having an anxiety attack that I could feel myself melting down and not able to breathe. I walked in my classroom to find 3 other students already there. I wanted to run and hide because I was embarrassed. Instead I walked up to one of them and simply said pray for me. They all laid their hands on me and prayed. Their prayer melted all of my anxiety away instantly. During the prayer our professor and other students came in. They didn't know what was going on but stopped walking immediately and bowed their heads. There was no teasing, no sidelong looks, nothing. Just pure friendship and love was shown to me. I would choose this school over and over again and have encouraged kids in my life to attend Johnson University.

Johnson University is a wonderful college. Johnson offers a multitude of opportunities to make the world a better place. The campus is gorgeous and the student life is full of activity. Its location is pristine, located next to the French Broad River tucked out of the way while just 20 minutes outside of downtown Knoxville. The faculty is like family and work excessively to help invest in your college career. This school is a perfect, small, family community to learn and grow in.

There are not many options to choose from. Boys soccer and boys basketball are popular. The basketball team is very good! The team talks to each other very well, and they become a close-nit family. Students do come to watch the games! The whole school is like a huge family.
