Life on Campus
Life as a Covenant student is hard to reduce into words. It’s the guys and girls playing Spikeball on a lazy Saturday on Carter lawn. It’s the group of students studying until 1:00 a.m. for a final. It’s the brothers and sisters raising voices in chapel every week and then screaming their heads off at a Scots soccer game.
Living at Covenant is energetic, multifaceted, and full of unforgettable experiences. The students at Covenant are a diverse group, but one common element binds them together: a strong desire to integrate life, academics, and faith in their time at Covenant College. Here are a few of the experiences waiting for you at Covenant…
When it’s time to get out and explore the world around you, it helps to have a location like ours. Nestled atop Lookout Mountain and overlooking the thriving city of Chattanooga, Covenant provides bountiful opportunities to learn, grow, and have fun both on and off campus.
Chattanooga was recently named the best outdoor town ever by Outside Magazine. Here are just a few popular outdoor activities our beautiful location offers…
- Rock climbing
- Mountain biking
- Hiking to Cloudland Canyon waterfalls
- White-water rafting
- And for the really adventurous, hang-gliding off the cliffs or a polar bear swim in January
At the same time, not all of the fun to be had off campus takes place in the great outdoors. Chattanooga—a vibrant city that combines a unique sense of history with an optimistic modern spirit—is just 10 minutes away. A revitalized downtown and riverfront. A burgeoning music scene. The Tennessee Aquarium. Hamilton Place Mall. The Tivoli Theatre. Great leisure activities. It’s all there for you.
When three quarters of the student body choose to participate in something, you know you should probably check it out.
That’s exactly the case with intramural sports at Covenant.
Participating in intramurals will enable you to challenge yourself, get exercise, make friends, be a leader, and experience the friendly competition of our student body. Not to mention have a lot of fun.
The intramural sports offered at Covenant include…
- Battle Ball (our version of dodgeball)
- Ultimate Frisbee
Chapel services are an important part of the holistic shaping and spiritual formation of Covenant students. Hearing teaching on the word of God informs our theology and shapes our hearts. Worshipping together unites us and draws our eyes to Jesus. God created believers to walk together, and chapel is one way we practice community three times each week.
Additionally, the Chapel Department comes alongside Student Development in mentoring and counseling students. Covenant is a safe place to ask hard questions. Followers of Christ often have doubts, faith questions, and sin struggles. Together, believers lift up each other and wrestle through questions, pointing each other to our Lord and Savior.
