August 2, 2016 – If you’ve ever stepped foot on Bryan College’s 125-acre campus, you quickly realized what beautiful and breathtaking scenery the school has to offer. ChristianUniversitiesOnline.com certainly thought so as they recently ranked Bryan the no. 7 “Most Beautiful Christian Colleges and Universities in the South” for 2017.

From the article:

“Bryan College is situated on a beautiful, rural 125-acre campus which is nestled in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee. Bryan College’s architectural style is more contemporary, favoring clean lines; the College’s signature chapel building (featured in the logo) features three large arches with tall glass windows. Bryan College’s campus is well planned, has lush green lawns, and an abundance of deciduous trees. Located next to Chickamauga Lake, Bryan College also borders the Dayton Municipal Park. The campus fits in well with its natural surroundings.”

The ranking was based off criteria that included: continuity of campus, architectural style, signature building, and natural setting. The scores in each category were standardized and combined to rank the top 25 schools. Many other schools from Tennessee made the list including Carson-Newman University, Union University, and Travecca Nazarene University.

“The Lord has blessed us with a beautiful location in a wonderful part of the country and a quality staff that is truly committed to making our campus the best possible living and learning environment for our students,” said Tim Hostetler, vice president of student services and ministries. “I am glad to see the results of their efforts recognized by those outside the Bryan College community.”
