The College is located on a stunningly beautiful, mountaintop campus and is adjacent to the vibrant city of Chattanooga, which was rated by Outside Magazine in 2016 as the Best Town Ever for those who love the outdoors and was described by President Barack Obama as a “tornado of innovation” for its dynamic startup scene.
