Student life is a highly important element of the college experience and at Carson-Newman University, we have everything students desire! With numerous student-led organizations and clubs and fun events such as Homecoming, Movie on the Lawn, Formal and The College Street Festival, there are plenty of reasons why you gotta see this place!
Our Christian faith is the most important part of our campus. It’s a part of the classroom experience, our athletic teams and residence life. Here you’ll find a community that encourages you in your spiritual walk and put your faith into action.
Work alongside local shelters for low-income families, participate in international mission trips or take a step further and apply to our Bonner Scholars program.
Our Community Life and Worship program brings students, faculty and staff together with weekly chapel services, in addition to other opportunities that nurture spiritual growth.
You'll find all kinds of groups where you can deepen your faith alongside your friends. Participate in Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM), Fellowship of Chrisitian Athletes (FCA) and more.
Starting with the Welcome Week, your calendar will be full of opportunities to connect with other students, explore new interests and make great memories. We offer more than 30 clubs and student groups, fine and performing arts groups, intramural and club sports. So jump in, get involved and make the most of your college experience!
