See what students say:


Covenant College is a “small, private Christian college” located in Lookout Mountain, Georgia and officially affiliated with the Presbyterian Church. It’s an ideal college for a student looking for an “integration of faith and learning” with its liberal arts education and focus on Christian ideals, after all the school motto is, “In All Things Christ Preeminent.” Many students find the school “academically challenging,” but that their professors are more than willing to help by “expressing genuine desire that their students do well.” A minority of the students has had issues with their professors but, for the most part, they praise their professors calling them, “highly educated in their area of expertise” and that they get to know everyone as “a person, not just a student.” Much of this is due to the “personal, small class size” especially in the upper level courses. Students are able to use the school’s “helpful and easy-to-understand registration system,” to sign up for classes.

Student Body

Most students are drawn to the school because of its religious affiliation, but insist that “there is not typical student” at Covenant. A lot recognize that its fairly diverse and acknowledge its especially strong “hipster culture” and the “strong athletic programs” as prominent cultures within the school, but many say that there is no real division between the two and that the school “fosters community” among everyone. The only issue is that while the school may be somewhat culturally diverse, it’s not quite as racially diverse with a few wishing it had a better “handling of diversity awareness.”

Campus Life

Since the school is located on a mountain in northwest Georgia, some of the students find that the campus is, “a little isolated,” but that the “close community of students and professors,” really helps to combat any feelings of loneliness. The mountain does have its perks though, since most students tend find that it has a lot to offer with such activities as rock climbing, hiking and biking. There are no sororities or fraternities on campus, but Downtown Chattanooga is “about 20 minutes away” so most tend to go there on weekends and “go to movies or walk by the river.” They also “love indie music” and are able to see a lot of “concerts and art shows” in the city. Some students say that the administration on campus is getting better at “listening to the opinions of students … but there is still plenty of room for improvement.” While some have this complaint about the higher-ups, most rave about the Campus Activity Board and their “dances, along with several other events” throughout the year that help bring students together.
