Advantages of Attending Hiwassee College – a Small Liberal Arts College

Hiwassee College as a small, liberal arts college provides students with opportunities for developing leadership skills as early as the freshman year. Students have opportunities for expressing themselves through music, theatre, sports, creative writing, clubs, and organizations, all while expanding their level of self-confidence in what they can become. Students will have more opportunity for one-on-one contact with professors and with academic advisers who can help students plot their course through their academic career. Students are frequently in classes taught by their academic advisers giving them ample opportunities to ask questions about academic matters. Hiwassee College professors are totally responsible for the evaluation of student progress in the coursework. Since Hiwassee does not offer graduate programs, as in larger colleges, teaching assistants are not used for teaching or scoring assignments. Rather, professors take the time to carefully prepare engaging learning materials, read student work, offer detailed comments, and give constructive feedback to students. Limited class size makes it possible for professors to assign and evaluate more written work and projects, thus giving students ample opportunities to develop the critical thinking and communication skills necessary to be successful in today’s changing world. At Hiwassee, teaching is the primary focus of the faculty. Student learning and student success are what we value most. Students will rarely be in a class with more than 25 students – most will be in classes of less than 20 students. This environment affords greater opportunity to actively participate in discussions and has direct interaction with the professors. Eight-five to ninety percent of all classes are taught by full-time faculty members.

Athletics

We take pride in the athletic program at Hiwassee College, and a majority of our students are involved in team or intramural sports. We recruit students from all over to be a part of a variety of men’s and women’s sports including baseball, basketball, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball, equestrian, bass fishing, shooting sports, and rodeo. For many athletes desiring to continue playing sports after high school, Hiwassee College provides the perfect opportunity to join our athletic program. We offer many scholarships to talented athletes across the country. Come be part of our team at Hiwassee College and “Go Tigers!”
