Student Affairs

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.


Welcome from Dean McMahan…

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.

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 fellowship each Wednesday during the Chapel Service 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.
