Transfer Webpage

Hey Guys,

I hope everyone is getting ready for Christmas break. I know this time of year is especially stressful because of final exams. One positive thing about Tusculum's Block schedule is exam time. Our students' only have to take one exam at a time. While the one exam still requires a lot of studying, our schedule does reduce some of the stress associated with studying for multiple tests. If you're interested in learning more about our class structure, feel free to contact your admission counselor.

Tusculum has opened a new transfer student webpage. If you are interested in transferring to Tusculum, our transfer webpage provides a lot of great information that can assist you in many areas. There is information regarding application materials, financial aid, transferring classes and much more.

Finally, while Christmas vacation is going to start on Wednesday for most of campus, the office of Admission will remain open throughout the holiday season. If you would like to speak with an admission representative over the break, feel free to give us a call.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

TC Honors Students Celebrate Christmas

Tusculum College Honors students and faculty gathered Friday, December 4, at the college's mother church, First Presbyterian in downtown Greeneville, for the annual Honors Christmas banquet. The Presbyterian Women of First Presbyterian Church provided a gourmet meal with a melt-in-your-mouth chocolate confection for dessert. Honors students Alex Wiedemann and Mitchell Taylor, both Tusculum College freshmen, played the piano and guitar respectively to provide accompaniment for a rousing round of Christmas carols. Alex also played several intricate works. A riotous game of Dirty Santa was played by all as fun gag gifts such as felt antlers and sets of Play Dough were playfully fought over. The evening concluded as students and faculty contributed canned goods and money for a food bank donation.

Christmas Concert at TC

The Tusculum College Community Chorus will present a Christmas concert on Monday, December 14.
The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Annie Hogan Byrd Fine Arts Building on the Tusculum College campus.  The event is free and open to the public.
The first half of the program will feature compositions for the season from great composers ranging from Bach to Schubert to Gustav Holst.
The Schubert work is a setting of Mary’s song recorded in Luke, the “Magnificat,” and features a solo quartet along with the full chorus.  The solo quartet is Jill Jones, Jody Palm, Michael Forte and Kevin Flannagan.  Two additional soloists, Kritin Girton and Martha Wiley, participate in Gustav Holst’s composition, “Christmas Day.”
In the second half of the program, the chorus will sing a variety of familiar carols and shorter compositions, including “White Christmas,” “Go Tell it on the Mountain,” “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and “Mary Had A Baby,” with soloist Heather Burr.  To round out the program are the chorus’ traditional closing selections, “Still, Still, Still” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
David Hendricksen is the conductor for the group, and James Winfree is the accompanist.
