School does not allow students to live off campus unless they meet a very specific criteria.

Absolutely not allowed to drink and smoke on campus. Not tolerated and not done because students here are smart enough to know that those things are not as important as an education. Some know this more than others but a general vote would be against having that stuff on campus.

I have lived in massive cities all my life and I have never enjoyed them as much as I have this small personal town. It is beautiful and not over-populated but has enough business to be able to find jobs after college and has a cheap enough housing market that living here would not be too much of an issue.
College Sophomore 2013-11-06T19:33:51Z
Has had significant improvement as of recent years. We have seen a big jump in quality and desirable items. Still is a little too much fried "cheap" food choices that pop up close to restocking day but it is okay because there are other options less than five minutes away in town.

Some of the best times I have had at this college have been hanging out with awesome friends at restaurants both cheap and slightly higher class.

Good facilities for the general size of the college. They serve the purpose and at this point are constantly being renovated and updated. At the same time it is these older buildings that help the environment look as beautiful and historic as it does.

They do not stranglehold anything except for Drinking, Drugs and Sexual activity. ALL of which are not allowed and honestly have no need in any college due to the distractions they inevitably cause.

I have spent every single season at this college and love it. The Atmosphere and enviroment are replicated no where else. The community is rock solid and many Christians and non Christians who come from secular institutes often remark at how great this little college actually is on the inside looking out instead of the outside looking in. Education standards are well balanced and so are the resources and entertainment around campus. There are tons of events put on throughout the year that both grow the community spiritually and emotionally. Tons of sports to be played and much more. I have understood salvation while being at this college and I praise God for all HE has done for me at this college.

We do not need given transportation because of how small we are as a college. We have everything we need and want in close proximity to the dorms from which we live in. Our classes, activities, student centers, cafeteria, gym and everything is all within an eight minute walk of each other. Also rides back home are frequently worked out within the student body due to it being a tight knit community.

Health & Safety:
It is not the absolute best, but for a college this small too much security would be a waste of valuable money that could be used elsewhere. The health care places like the nurses areas should be upgraded, but generally you just avoid them and go to the adjoining hospital literally a short walk away for any issues.
College Sophomore 2013-11-06T19:12:20Z
The community at the dorms and campus housing are absolutely huge at this college. People feel welcomed and have a blast hanging out and living with their peers. Getting to know the experiences that others have faced has strengthened my faith and grew my maturity far more than any nice Jacuzzi or other unnecessary amenity could have.
College Sophomore 2013-11-06T19:08:05Z
Here is the bottom line when it comes to this page. Regardless of whether you live off or on campus you are not allowed to do such immoral things. Sexual immorality is not something that is at all justified even outside of a Christian college setting.

Weather is beautiful and varied at different times throughout a week. Some days it will be temperate with a breeze, others will be scalding hot or freezing cold. Being up in the mountains generally makes it feel nice regardless of the overall temperature due to the humidity being much lower in level compared to other places in the state.
College Sophomore 2013-11-06T19:03:33Z
It is a Christian college. Next to zero muslims and other religions make their way here to the college. We have an extremely diverse pool of Christians and missionaries however.

It's okay. The menu is pretty bland, but they make a decent attempt year after year.

The parking is mostly pretty decent. Since TFC is a small campus, the parking is limited and students are encouraged to walk between most classes unless they are physically unable. Sufficient parking is available in the main parking lot and several lots closer to various dorms and classroom buildings. The main problem is parking in the upperclassmen's housing. These parking lots are mostly farther from the buildings, and some have narrower dirt driveways that get washed out easily even when they're repaired over and over again.

Our facilities are appropriate to a college our size. The student center includes the cafeteria, post office, a small, fast-food type restaurant (that isn't fast), a student lounge (which includes about three couches, a few tables, and a tv), and a new convenience store inside of the student lounge.
The gym includes a new cardio room, and there is also a weight room that was a new addition in the spring of '13. We don't have a football team, but we have a soccer field, a baseball diamond, an intramural field where various sports teams practice, and a beautiful, mostly soft-surface, cross country course, which is a favorite of teams in our league.
College Senior 2013-07-29T06:03:32Z
The size of TFC, in my opinon, is almost perfect. At about 750 students, it's big enough to have a variety of opportunities, but small enough that you know a significant portion of the student body, even the people you don't know all look familiar, and the professors not only remember your name, but take the time to get to know you and become your friends and mentors.
The facilities vary in quality, since it's an old campus and there are a variety of newer and older buildings. The setting of the campus really can't be beat. Nestled in the North Georgia mountains, it would be pretty enough even if it weren't home to the highest free-falling waterfall east of the Mississippi River.

I rarely eat out, so I don't really care too much about the number of restaurants around. Toccoa is a small town, so there aren't as many options as a lot of people are used to, but it's plenty for me to be content. As long as you're not looking for fine dining or Chick-fil-a (the nearest one, which is new, is about 30 miles away), Toccoa probably has some good options for you. There's plenty of fast food options, Applebees, about three Mexican restaurants, a couple of Asian places, the classic southern Waffle House, and some nice little downtown cafes.

To get accepted to the music department I had to audition as well as get accepted to the school, and then declare my major after my first semester.

TFC is in the mountains, so there are a lot of hiking trails and other fun things to do nearby. The town is not so great, it's very small, so for people who don't like outdoor fun there's not much to do.
Recent Alumnus 2013-06-25T13:22:29Z
The dorms are sad. You cannot live off campus until you are 23 and the only way you can live off campus is to live near the school. The dorms are old and since Toccoa had a flood like 30 years ago some of the buildings are infected with mold. Some RAs (girls) are super strict too.

A lot of kids come from around the country and the world because of missions.
College Sophomore 2013-06-14T22:01:21Z
I am very satisfied with the professors in my program because each of them have had many years of experience under their belts! They have a lot of knowledge to pass on to their students (us). They don't hold back when it comes to talking about the negatives of the program the careers. That is something that it very respectable in my opinion. I would rather have someone be blunt with me about the program and career I am going into than have someone sugar coat and tell me what I want to hear. The workload is something else! I have only been in a few classes that really go into depth about my program, but I have quite a few friends that are taking the classes that require a lot more attention and they say the workload is tremendous and the exams are exhausting! I just know that when I am able to graduate, I will have some connections to help me find a job after school. That's a huge plus!

Getting all of my transcripts was a little frustrating because I had transferred from two other colleges. Other than that it was pretty easy.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
