See what students say:


A Christian college “committed to building character with intellect,” students at Toccoa Falls College say their school excels at “teaching men and woman to become professionals in several fields to in order to facilitate the spreading of the Gospel of Christ.” Many undergrads choose Toccoa Falls College for its extensive required curriculum in the Bible and Christian theology, and “because it is one of the best schools for missions in the United States,” preparing students who plan to pursue careers in missionary service. Whether teaching religious subject matter or traditional academics, “Professors are qualified and, for the most part, entertaining and enlightening.” Serving their students as mentors as well as teachers, Toccoa Falls professors are “personally involved in the students’ lives and they take time to say ‘hi’ and greet students by name.” A senior shares, “The administration and professors are very involved in student life outside of the classroom, which I like a lot. I feel like most of my professors are my friends but are still professional about it.”

Student Body

Given the school’s strong Christian focus, its not surprising that “most of our students are the same in beliefs, so we are pretty much conservative and evangelical.” Religion is taken seriously on this pious campus, and “The typical student at TFC is in love with God and wants to model Christ in their everyday lives.” While the majority of undergrads hail from middle-class, White, Southern families, there is some diversity in the undergraduate population. In particular, students point out that there are “a lot of Hmong students and growing international student body,” as well as some socioeconomic and ethnic diversity. Generally speaking, “Most of these groups fit in well, except for theologically liberal students, who meet with some social ostracism.”

Campus Life

In many respects, life at Toccoa Falls is about, “becoming better servants for Christ,” and therefore, “Most of us are involved in some type of school or community ministry.” When its time to take a break from their service activities or studies, students tend to “do innocent fun stuff, like bowling and roller skating.” A sophomore elaborates, “We have good clean fun, usually making fools of ourselves or acting like little kids. We rake leaves and jump in them, have water-gun fights; we go sing karaoke or go bowling; we hike, swim, go out to eat, play games in Wal-Mart, make up scavenger hunts, hang out in the graveyard.” On campus, there is a coffee shop, and many students participate in intramural sports; however, students lament the fact that “there aren’t too many fun activities consistently,” and the surrounding town leaves something to be desired. Thanks to its rural setting, however, Toccoa Falls is, “a great place for those who love the outdoors,” as the campus (as indicated by its name) is “surrounded by mountains and four waterfalls.”
