Student Affairs

Because Tusculum is a small college, the style of life on campus is that of a community, a group of people -- students, faculty and staff -- working, learning, and living together. Attention is given to individual and community growth both in and out of the classroom.


The staff of the College recognizes the importance of a well-rounded college experience to each student’s life. The Office of Student Affairs is primarily concerned with programs and services that create an environment beneficial to personal and group learning and development.

As a result, the Office of Student Affairs staff supports and encourages diverse co-curricular programs, that, when combined with the academic program provides an enriched college environment.

Student Activities sponsors these functions to enhance the educational experiences of Tusculum students. Students have the opportunity to attend events like the Coffee House Series showcasing local bands, weekly Fast Break Friday activities, off-campus Block Break trips, and a variety of novelty acts such as comedians, musicians, musicians, etc. who visit campus throughout the year.

Tusculum’s location in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains is also naturally conducive to a variety of outdoor activities. Students are often eager to attend school sponsored hiking, camping, caving, backpacking, and whitewater rafting trips.

Student Activities Board

The Student Activities Board (SAB) serves as campus leaders who help decide campus entertainment. SAB plays an important part in gathering ideas for new events and implementing the many tasks required to execute successful events. Any student who wants to help out with activities should attend our weekly meetings.
