My school is set apart by the block schedule. I take only one class at a time for 18 days and then I have a 4 day break to go home or relax without stress and then I begin with my next class. I take 4 classes a semester just like any other college and will have just as many credits as other college students. It helps you concentrate on one subject at a time! Plus, Tusculum is also in the beautiful scenery of the Great Smokey Mountains so waking up to the great view is a definite plus! My decision to move five hours away from home to attend Tusculum College was the best decision I have ever made because I have made friends that I will keep for a lifetime because everyone is so friendly and inviting! Andrew Johnson also attended Tusculum and it was the first college in Tennessee so it has some great history to it's name!

Tusculum's campus is beautiful with all of the trees, mountains, and pretty lawns. The college is small so everyone knows everybody. There is a minor league (The Greeneville Astros) that uses our baseball field which they help take care, fix, and renovate the field. It looks really good! The library was the old gym (I know that sounds nasty) but they have redone the inside completely and updated everything! it is beautiful inside and out! Intramural sports at TC are so much fun and you have ton of sports to choose from to play!

There isn't a reliable taxi service in our town. The nightlife can be great if you know how to make it great. We have a dry campus which really sucks because a lot of my friends and I like to hangout and drink but we can get into a lot of trouble if we get caught. Even if people are old enough to drink. There aren't many great clubs around my school. You need to drive about 20 minutes away for the nearest big club, but there are a lot of casual bars close to my school that are pretty fun. Underage nightlife is crazy because a lot of the freshman try to get hammered and get crazy on campus!
