Number of students on our campus: 7000
Number of International Students: 80

Our Campus is unique because: It’s the Smoky Mountain community college, has nationally ranked sports teams, and has culinary arts and hospitality schools
One of the best ways we have found to connect with new students is: Through our local community. Through churches and schools. Because nearly all of our student are regional it can be very effective to use natural relationships that already exist to network with new students.
God is at work on our campus: We have seen growth in ministry to faculty and staff . We would like to see growth in the Fall and an increased presence on campus with outreach and prayer.
Campus Mascot: Senators
Ways to Pray…
