Carson-Newman University featured in new TV series

Carson-Newman University is one of a limited number of universities in the southeast featured in the TV series, The College Tour. The program is created by Emmy-nominated and multi-award-winning producers. Hosted and produced by Amazing Race winner Alex Boylan, each episode highlights one college or university from across the country.

“It was awesome to get to travel to Jefferson City to visit campus,” Boylan said. “The warm sense of Christian community along with Carson-Newman’s beautiful location, makes it easy to see why students choose this university. We are so excited to have them as part of The College Tour.”

Carson-Newman joins other schools including University of Cincinnati, University of Central Florida, Utah State University and Miami University as part of newly released Season 3. Each segment features a current C-N student with the final segment highlighting University President Charles A. Fowler sharing the mission and vision of the institution.

Danette Seale, acting vice president for Enrollment Management and Executive Director of Financial Aid, said she is excited to share why Carson-Newman is a place to be considered when looking for colleges. “Carson-Newman is a place where when you visit our campus, you not only feel at home, but you find a vibrant, beautiful campus community with faculty and staff that pour into our students to help them reach their full potential. Our episode is an innovative way to help prospective students and families really see the fabric of our mission in a more authentic way than ever before. Anyone considering attending a Christian University will get to see what it’s truly like being a student at Carson-Newman.”

Junior communications major Lee Rose Koza, had the opportunity to help with the episode production. “Being a part of the college tour solidified my decision to purse a degree in communications,” said Koza, who was featured in a segment on C-N’s location. “Working alongside the crew was inspiring. Carson-Newman is my home away from home for many reasons and the opportunity to showcase the university’s location and all the fun it brings was truly amazing.” 

Already showing on Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, and The College Tour App, Carson-Newman’s episode explores the University’s location, various programs, affordability, athletics and other areas of interest. The episode is slated to launch on Amazon Prime in February.
