TC Homecoming is here!

Hey guys! Not only has fall arrived on campus, it's already time for Tusculum's Homecoming! It's amazing how quickly time has gone by this year! Our students began their third class of the year last week. One of the great things about The Block is that TC students have already completed TWO college courses at this point in the year--done! What a great feeling for them!
The trees on campus are beautiful this year. If you're considering Tusculum as a place to continue your education, this is a great time of year to make a campus visit! Once you step on campus, I think you'll see what makes TC so special. You can schedule a private visit with your Admission Counselor (seen on the right hand side of this page) by calling (800) 729-0256. Crystal Hirschy is our visit coordinator, and she'll be glad to help you schedule a visit.
We also have one remaining Open House event coming up on November 14. You can check out the details, and even rsvp, by clicking on this link.
Hope to see you on campus soon!!

Fall is here!

Greetings everyone!

It's starting to get a little chilly around the campus, and the trees are changing colors.  This can only mean one thing...Fall is here!  That also means Fall Break, so although Block 2 of classes end on Wednesday, students at Tusculum don't have to come back for classes until Wednesday, October 21st.  That's just about a week off!

Be sure to visit one of our admission counselors, as some of us are still out on the road recruiting for the Fall of 2010.  Andrew is in the Middle Tennessee/Nashville area covering college fairs, and Ashley will be around the Knoxville and surrounding area working fairs at high schools.  Be sure to visit them and let them tell you more at Tusculum!  Becky will be at Alcoa High School on Thursday, so if you go to school at Alcoa, be sure to stop and tell her hi also!  Remember to fill out a contact card while you're visiting our counselors, so we can send you information about Tusculum College!  

In case you weren't able to come to our Open House on October 3rd, you have another chance!  We are holding another Open House on November 14th, that's a Saturday, from 8:30am until noon.  Students, you are welcome to invite your family to come with you.  We will have information sessions about the school and financial aid to parents, as well as have sessions for students to ask us questions, and you'll get to sit in on a mock class, so you'll have an idea of what classes are like here at Tusculum!  We'll also give tours around the campus.  As I said before, fall is here, so now is the time to come and experience Tusculum.  If you'd like to schedule your reservation, please contact Crystal Hirschy at, or contact your admission counselor so we can set that up for you.

Happy Fall Break!
