I have a daughter that will be going to College next year. She wants to attend a Christian College in Tenn. She will be majoring in journalism/broadcasting. Does anyone have any knowledge of the Christian colleges ? I know there is Lipscomb, Lee University, Bryant. Any info on the colleges or the towns near them would be great.

Hi Lutz Lady,

Belmont University and Trevecca Nazarene University are both located in Nashville. Belmont is ranked one of the best universities in the country.

Freed-Hardiman University is in Henderson, TN

Carson-Newman is in Jefferson City. We have a friend that teaches here and just loves it. Small but a quality education.

I don't have a lot of other information but I'm sure you daughter can research these universities a lot more effectively than I can!

Hi Lutz Lady,

I know of several colleges which are considered Christian Oriented. Carson Newman is a wonderful College; it is a Baptist College and is located in Johnson City, Tennessee. Hiawasse College which is a Baptist college is located in Madisonville. I think it is only a two year college. Maryville College is a another wonderful school. It made the top 100 list for US Today. Maryville College is located in Maryville Tennessee. It is geographically located very close to Knoxville, Pigeon Forge, Townsend, and Gatlinburg.
Lee University is also a highly ranked school with a growing reputation. This college is located in Cleveland, Tennessee. Cleveland is very close to Chattanooga, Tennessee. Lee University is a Penetcostal College, affiliated with the Church of God. Tennessee Wesleyan College is located in Athens, Tennseee; it is a four year college with Methodist Affiliation. Athens, Tennessee is geographically located between Knoxville and Chattanooga.
All this college/universities have a very good reputation. Your daughter cannot go wrong if she picks any of the ones I mentioned.

There are other small town colleges, but their reputations are lacking.

I hope this helped you some. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. I have lived in this state all my life. I can easily tell you what you really need to know.

Good Luck,
Vanilla

Default Christian Colleges in TN

I don't know if have heard of Johnson Bible college outside Knoxville, but I was visiting friends there and it seemed like a great place to send you child to. I don't know much about the school or classes but the people there are very friendly. It seemed like the campus was very clean and free of that normall college behaviour. It is like you could trust the people that would be around you kids and not have to worry about them staying out of trouble.

Yes, Johnson Bible College is excellent (it's just east of Knoxville).

My daughters went to Carson-Newman - it's in Jefferson City (not Johnson City). This is east of Knoxville. Excellent art, music, sports, and many other majors.

Milligan College in the Eliz./Johnson City area is excellent. So is King College in Bristol. For future pharmacists, King has a tremendous transfer program.

Bryan College in Dayton is superb, I've heard.

I'm sure there are others, but those are the ones in Eastern TN I'm familiar with.

Default Christian Colleges

My son is also looking for a Christian college. He wants a college strong in academics yet offers an outstanding spiritual experience. He wants to major in political science. We looked into Lee University but have been told they focus mainly on academics but the spiritual aspect was not that great.
Could anyone maybe point us in the right direction for the type of college he is looking for? Thanks so much.

I am a graduate of Lee University and it has been ranked in the top tier of colleges for the last several years. I'm not sure what the comment about the spiritual aspect not being that great means, I guess that would be a matter of opinion. However, having attended both a state university and Lee, I can tell you there is no comparison. Lee upholds high standards for its students, provides spiritually challenging chapels and convocations, etc. I can't imagine what else anyone would want in the way of spirituality.
