WELCOME FROM THE DEAN
We are delighted you have taken the time to view some of the many wonderful opportunities available at Tusculum College.
The mission of Student Affairs at Tusculum is to help individuals further their development as mature, community-minded citizens with an appreciation for different cultures and a natural curiosity leading to a lifelong journey of learning. We look to help students explore their values and enhance their spirituality as they prepare for their future endeavors.
While the Student Affairs Office serves as the Ombuds Office dedicated to helping students in resolving their issues, it is also comprised of programs focused on student success, including Campus Ministry, Counseling Services, Multicultural Programs, Orientation, Recreational Sports, Residential Life, Student Activities, and Health & Wellness.
We encourage students to utilize these resources, but also to become involved in their College community through attending academic, co-curricular and athletic events, joining clubs & organizations, and through taking leadership roles! The College has a long, rich history and we hope you will join us in celebrating our rituals, creating new traditions, and enjoying the journey before us.
We hope this webpage will help answer your questions, but we also look forward to your contacting us if we can be of assistance.
David M. McMahan, J.D.
Dean of Students
If you are seeking a smaller college away from urban stress and suburban sameness, Tusculum College is just the right size and in just the right place.
A small college like ours encourages you to be who you are and to try new things, knowing you'll never be lost in the crowd.
Tusculum's inviting campus, with its historic red-brick buildings, is set perfectly in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Greeneville, Tennessee, near whitewater rafting, hiking, skiing and rock climbing.
On campus, chill out with a smoothie in the Perk, sing out in the College Choir or enjoy Pioneer sports, with championship varsity teams and some of the best NCAA Division II athletic facilities in the country.
Or open your mind and refresh your spirit with Sunday fellowship evenings at the chaplain's home or a performance hosted by the International Society.
Our "Block Breaks" each month are also a welcome pause.
Our hometown of Greeneville offers small-town safety and friendliness, along with shopping, restaurants and culture.
