Paintball and Kings Island.... for FREE?!

When you are trying to figure out where to spend the next four years of your life, a wise question to ask is what activities or trips are available outside of the classroom.  Tusculum offers over 70 different clubs and organizations for students to participate in outside of varsity sports and academics.  Getting involved with clubs and organizations have numerous pay-offs.  Not only do you get the chance to meet new people and develop new relationships; you also can participate in some pretty amazing trips FOR FREE!

To give you an idea of what kind of free activities Tusculum students have been participating in, all we have to do is look to the Department of Freshmen Services.  This year Brandon Conner, Director of Freshmen Services, has already taken a group of freshmen on two pretty cool trips.  On October 1, his group spent the afternoon engaged in an intense paintball competition at Smokey Mountain Paintball.  This Saturday a group of new students are going to King’s Island in Cincinnati, Ohio.  They are looking forward to all the excitement that one of the nation’s top amusement parks has to offer.   I hope you consider asking about some of the other amazing trips that are available for Tusculum Students.

An Exciting Time at Tusculum...

It's been an exciting few weeks on the Tusculum College campus! Our admission staff has been keeping the roads hot, traveling to different high schools and college fairs over the past month. You may have seen us in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and of course Tennessee!

In other news, we welcomed our largest incoming class on record this year, with 404 new students attending Tusculum! We're excited to see new faces on campus, and have a hum of activity all around!

Last but certainly not least, Tusculum inducted its first female President this past Friday. Dr. Nancy B. Moody is the 27th president of Tusculum. We look forward to her leadership in the days ahead!

If you haven't had a chance to visit Tusculum, now is a great time! Fall is descending upon campus, and it's a beautiful time of year here in the mountains!
