Things To See and Do
Whether it’s a good game of Frisbee golf on the chapel lawn, attending one of our legendary theatre productions, or just hanging out with friends on our beautiful campus or along Chattanooga’s bustling riverfront, you will never be at a shortage of fun and exciting things to do at Covenant.
Take advantage of our tremendous mountain location and outstanding recreational activities by:
- hiking to Cloudland Canyon waterfalls
- mountain biking
- rock climbing
- white water rafting
- and for the really adventurous: hang-gliding off the Lookout Mountain cliffs, or a polar bear swim in January
Explore the dynamic city of Chattanooga, just 5 miles from campus. A thriving business district, shopping malls, visual and performing arts venues, a local IMAX, and abundant leisure activities make Chattanooga one of the nation’s most livable cities.
You will find dining hotspots that fit every budget and offer plenty of fun and excitement. These include local favorites such as Greyfriar’s Coffee (alumni-founded) and Clumpies Ice Cream (alumni-owned), as well as Mojo Burrito and Big River Grille. You can hang out with friends at Lupi’s Pizza or relax for a picnic at Coolidge Park.
Many opportunities to enjoy the arts exist both on our campus and in the Chattanooga community. The College puts on art exhibits, theatre productions, and concerts throughout the year. In addition, many concert halls, art galleries and museums, and performing arts venues are only a short drive from our campus.
Sports and Recreation
On-campus sports range from competitive intercollegiate athletic teams to club sports to intramural competitions. You can show your school spirit by supporting Covenant’s 13 intercollegiate athletic teams for men and women. Our beloved Scots compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) - Division III and in the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA). The majority of Covenant students participate in intramural sports, and there are plenty of off-campus sports opportunities as well, such as taking in a Chattanooga Lookouts baseball game or a Chattanooga Football Club soccer match.
