If you are thinking of attending Tusculum you should. It's a great school. I'm a parent of a student there. They go above and beyond for the students. Especially in emergencies. My daughter donated blood and when she went to eat dinner she passed out. Because she didn't eat properly before. She had a gash that needed stitches. She went to the hospital and someone from student affairs and a teacher went to the hospital and stayed with her then took her to the pharmacy and back to her dorm. I want to thank them for doing this. I was pacing around waiting to know how bad it was and ready to make the trip if needed.

As a person who has spent time at several small institutions (whether as a student, an employee, or somewhere in between), I can honestly say that Tusculum College exudes all of the best aspects of small town college life. Need to make a late night Cook Out run? No problem. Want to join a club on campus and meet people with common interests? No problem. Need a great cup of coffee to start your day that's merely walking distance from the dorms? No problem. Want to explore entertainment venues, shopping areas, and amusement sites without driving for hours and hours to do so? No problem. Need a small professor to student ratio for a better educational experience? No problem. Want to experience a college football tailgate and paint up for the big game? Again, no problem. Surely, by now, you get the idea. Tusculum College has everything you need and more to have a one-of-a-kind college experience. While having "everything" you may need for a great college experience is important, I can attest that it's the people at Tusculum that will make ensure the experience is worthwhile. For those who haven't had a positive experience, you didn't give it a fair shake. For every disgruntled student, there are 10 others who loved their professors. For every athlete that left or quit, there are 10 others who stuck it out and will return to participate in alumni games. For every person who stayed in their dorm room and passed on their friends' plans for the day, there are 10 others who made the most of their time at Tusculum, doing anything and everything and trying not to miss a single thing. At Tusculum College, they suggest that you "pioneer" your future. It's a verb...act on it. And as always, Pioneer Up!
