Visible is a unique diverse college of students and faculty from all walks of life. We are a tightly knit community of Christians reaching for the same goal of Making Jesus famous. While there are academic classes such as math and science which hold a great importance the faculty encourage and challenge the students to grow in their particular area as far as their musical talent as well as their walk with Christ. The teachers here are extremely talented and have a lot to teach. Registration process is very swift and easy due to the awesome office faculty, financial aid still has a few kinks to get out but is getting better. The courses, especially music theory, is extremely challenging but they offer free tutoring and because we are closely knit there is so many opportunities to speak to your professors. We hold each other accountable and there is pastoral care. Dorm life is amazing, there is always something to do. Overall, its just a great school to go to challenging but the amazing community helps get each other along with out competition which is rare in an artist centered school. That's what happens when God is present.

Available Housing – Visible School partners with an apartment complex right across the street from the new building in downtown Memphis. The apartments are about the same price as the dorms (which are brand new condominium apartments built two years ago) if split amongst four people. In my opinion, nothing beats on-campus housing as far as aesthetics goes, but the overflow apartments are cozy enough. Other than that, downtown living can get pricey. Midtown is about a 10 minute drive, and has plenty of affordable housing options, but it's important to know where to look. Neighborhoods in Memphis change completely from one street to the next. Luckily, as a first year on-campus (or the off-campus overflows I was just talking about) housing is required, so by the second year here a student should no where the hotspots in town are.

My major, in my opinion, was the best option at the school. It gives you the basic music and theology training but also gives you a very hands on outlook. I will be able to use everything that I learned out in the workplace. The workload can be a little intense but I think it's good for musicians to get a little push sometimes. Overall the facilities are great and there is enough space for personal practice time.
