My childhood was spent in the small rural town of Niota, TN where I spent summers playing baseball. In fact, God used baseball to introduce me to Bryan College! From the moment I first arrived on campus to the day I graduated, “Christ Above All,” impacted the way I lived my life: in the dorm, in the classroom, and on the ball field. I graduated in May 2013 with a B.A. in Biblical Studies and chose to remain at Bryan College as an Enrollment Counselor. I would love to tell you more about why I, along with countless others, feel so blessed to have spent our college years at Bryan College! Call me at 423-775-7218 or email me.
I still remember the day I chose to become a Bryan Lion. In high school, I knew I wanted to play volleyball at a small Christian college, but I didn’t have a clue what major I wanted or what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I got offers to play volleyball from a few schools, including Bryan. I honestly couldn’t decide and prayed that God would lead me. One day, I was sitting in a Mexican restaurant, eating delicious cheese dip and–bam–all of a sudden I knew I belonged at Bryan. I called the coach and signed with Bryan. I had no idea how amazing my four years would turn out to be! If you want to tell me your story or hear more of mine, please call me at 423.775.7579 or email me.
Coming to Bryan College all the way from Tampa, Florida was one of the best decisions I ever made! I came to play volleyball, but fell in love with the school and the people here. One of my favorite things about Bryan are the professors and the staff members that are dedicated to getting to know every student that comes here. They challenged me to grow academically, spiritually, and personally every day for four years! I absolutely loved my time at this school, and I’m excited to get to know you and help you start your Bryan journey! I would love to talk with you about why I think Bryan is a great place, so call me at 423-775-7205 or email me!
The best way to get to know a college is to visit it. At Bryan College, there are things you can only experience as a student that truly makes the college unique. However, a campus visit can give you a glimpse of what life at Bryan is like. We are always excited to welcome guests to campus for events or personal visits. Every campus visit includes a guided tour and a meeting with an admissions counselor. You may request to stay overnight in a residence hall, attend chapel, eat in the dining hall, sit in on classes, or meet with professors.
Give us a call at 800-277-9522 to register for a group visit or ask questions!
If you can’t come to campus yourself take part in this virtual tour.
Where we live
Bryan is located atop what students call “The Hill” in Dayton, TN. This quaint town offers the backdrop of the beautiful Tennessee countryside for studying and growing in community.
Where we play
East Tennessee is home to many recreational parks, cultural experiences and entertainment. With less than 40 minutes away from the scenic city of Chattanooga, there are plenty places to wind down after a week of classes. You can experience the many local eateries, art and shopping that Chattanooga has to offer or attend a cultural festival in the Appalachian foothills.
Bryan’s dining hall is located in the student center and runs on a “continuous service” model; this means that Monday through Friday the dining hall is open 7am – 7pm. This model serves the students at Bryan College by offering nutritious options at their convenience. The dining hall also works with students who may have allergies or special dietary needs on a case by case basis. We want to see our students lead healthy lives.
The residence halls all have their own personality and proud residents. Each building has a Resident Director (RD) to help guide students. Each floor also has one or two Resident Assistants (RA) who help plan floor events and conduct administrative responsibilities in the residence halls.
Intramural competition allows students to have an outlet in which they can engage in a healthy level of competition and interact with fellow students, faculty and staff. These events take place periodically throughout both the fall and spring semesters. Some of the intramurals offered are flag football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, pool, dodgeball, and ping-pong.
Bryan athletic teams compete in the Appalachian Athletic Conference (AAC), which is a part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Bryan College teams have been recognized both in the AAC and NAIA for academic and athletic excellence.
At Bryan, we not only learn together, we learn to live in community together. Chapel—every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday—allows the entire student body to come together to worship, listen to a variety of speakers, and participate in special presentations.
Bryan College is a place where getting an education means a lot more than gathering information or passing an exam. At Bryan, we learn because we know that we are called to lead. And that’s why we strive to offer the best academics professors who encourage students to think deeply and critically about what they’re being taught and to frame it all within a Biblical worldview.
