• My computer science courses at Carson-Newman were both fun and challenging. Their focus on practical problems and puzzle-like exercises helped me stay engaged and learn rapidly. After graduating, I was able to find a job in less than four weeks. Computer science is a thriving field, with great pay, competitive benefits, and is required by everything in the modern world.

Carson-Newman holds 2015 Winter Commencement

Campus News | December 14, 2015

Retired U.S. Army Major General Mike Jones speaks to Carson-Newman graduates during the University's Winter Commencement.

(Dec. 14, 2015) – Carson-Newman recognized over 100 graduates during its Winter Commencement held in the University's Holt Fieldhouse. Retired U.S. Army Major General Mike Jones delivered the commencement address.

Jones, a 1977 alumnus, encouraged graduates to work for success while understanding that symbols of such, like fancy offices, expensive cars and even military medals, are temporary. He said he hoped they would also afford themselves and others grace when mistakes are made and closed with a personal lesson. Noting that life consists of moments, he encouraged listeners allow the past and future their proper places by learning to live in the present.
