Covenant College Computers

PC Power – The computer labs on campus are a great place to finish some last minute homework for classes. Most of the computer labs contain 8 or more computers along with one printer in each lab. During exams, there will normally be a 5 minute wait for the printer to get free to print your paper from the overload of assignments being printed. The school has a wireless printing feature where you can send your order to any printer on campus and pick it up. With several computer labs and printers on campus, a personal computer isn't necessary if you don't mind working in the computer lab.
Internet access can be more of an issue. Sometimes the wi-fi will just bottom out for no reason or warning which usually leaves students waiting to complete work for a couple hours. Connecting to the network can also be a hassle if trying to connect with a device other than a computer. Trying to connect my kindle to the network has usually ended in exasperation. But the college's tech services are always willing to help with any situation that comes up.
Recreation Galore – Covenant's location for entertainment is ideal for those that are fond of nature. Rock City is within minutes of the campus and affords for wonderful times hiking. Many students also enjoy finding a spot on the brow and simply enjoying a sunrise or sunset. On the list of things to do should definitely be hang gliding because there is a small operation on the mountain that gives customers the ability to view the mountain from the skies. Covenant is about 15-20 minutes from downtown Chattanooga as well as the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. There are plenty of cozy cafes and shops to spend time and hang with friends. Chattanooga also boasts it's own attractions of museums, an aquarium, zoo, and parks. There is ample opportunities for enjoyment around Covenant with a few dollars and time. Most of the businesses know the Covenant crowd as well and are happy to have them as customers. Some businesses are even accepting Covenant students ID cards that double as a cash card as a means to pay for food creating a stronger relationship between the college and local businesses.
Privilege of Upperclassmen – Off-campus housing is reserved for seniors only. There are several apartments available from the college itself and several students share the expenses of rent and groceries. There is some available housing near the college along the mountain but means of transportation are limited to one's own vehicle or a carpool. Mainly the problem is that with the college's location on the mountain there are non-students trying to find housing because of the natural beauty as well as most of the senior class for conveinance. Therefore, it can be difficult trying to find a place that is available let alone reasonable. Parking perks depends on how much the off-campus student is willing to pay but basically gives them the same privileges of residents. A hundred dollars gets them within 500 ft of one of the academic buildings with a special off-campus sticker, seventy-five gets them about a fourth of a mile from the first academic building, and fifty will get them about a third of a mile away. The neighborhood of Lookout Mountain is very friendly and landlords as well as neighbors are mostly agreeable. Because of the neighborhood's friendly spirit, safety is understood and not an issue for the students seeking off-campus housing. The college is concerned about their off-campus students as well as residents and seeks to accommodate them by offering different laundry and meal plans for their convenience.
