We'd be happy to help. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706.820.1560.
Prospective students (between the ages of 15-25) who have registered for Covenant 360 are eligible to spend the night in the residence halls with current students.
If you have contacted the current student and they have said you may stay in their room for Covenant 360, you may make a note of that on your registration in the "Covenant Housing" field. We will try our best to meet your housing requests, but cannot always meet these requests.
When you and your friend register for Covenant 360 each of you should put each other's names in the "Previewer Housing" field. We will try our best to meet your housing requests, but cannot always meet these requests. Please note: Most rooms only have room for one or two visitors. We are unable to place groups of visiting students in the same room. If you would like to be placed in the same building as other members of your group, please put their names in the "Previewer Housing" field.
Visiting students will be spending the night in the residence halls with current student volunteers. Prospective students are encouraged to bring an air mattress, as most students only have floor space in their room.
Check in begins at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday. If you are planning to arrive outside of our normal registration window (4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. on Thursday) do not worry! Student Admissions Representatives will be in Carter Hall Lobby to check you in and help you find your accommodations Thursday from 4:30 p.m. — midnight and Friday beginning at 7:30 a.m.
Yes! We encourage you to meet your admissions counselor and attend classes, the informational panel, chapel, lunch in the Great Hall, and the academic open house.

On your online registration, please include as much of your flight information as you have and make a note in the "Additional Comments" field that you will require a ride from the Chattanooga Airport. Additionally, please make sure that you include a cell phone number for the student traveling. If your flight information is adjusted, please contact the campus visit coordinator at 706.419.1127 to update your event registration.

Yes! There are multiple ways to meet professors during Covenant 360. The first and most popular way to meet faculty is to attend a class and speak with the professor afterwards. The second way is to attend the Academic Open House. Additionally, some departments will choose to do departmental presentations. Those will be published on the master schedule as they are confirmed.
Covenant 360 is a great way to see what it's like to live as a Scot for the day; however, you will not be paired with a student to shadow. We encourage you to attend classes and programs that interest you and to get to know your future classmates.
A class list will be published and emailed out the week of Covenant 360. Friday classes are typically 50 minutes long so we encourage you to select a few that interest you to observe. Admissions counselors and current students are available to help recommend classes for observation. Parents are also welcomed and encouraged, but not required, to observe classes. Some parents observe class with their student and some observe a different class than their student. Both options have their advantages, so we encourage you to do what suits the needs of your family best.
While we try to take all cancelled classes off the class list, unfortunately, last minute changes are bound to happen. We sincerely apologize if you arrive to a class and they are not having class that day. Admissions Counselors will be standing in the hallways to help you find an alternate class to observe.
Each student will need $10 cash (preferred), check, or card for their refundable Scots card deposit. When you return your Scots card at the end of Covenant 360, you will receive your cash or check back. If you chose to pay by card we will begin to process your refund. In addition to the refundable deposit, you may choose to bring spending money for the Blink (snack shop) or the Tuck Shoppe (campus bookstore) but that is optional.
Admissions interviews are optional and are at the discretion of the Admissions Counselor or the Admissions File Evaluator. If you are requested to interview, you will be asked to set up a phone interview. Interviews are not conducted during Covenant 360.
Admissions counselors will be in Carter Lobby during Covenant 360 to talk with you and your family and to answer any questions you might have. Additionally, there will be an informational session/panel. You can submit your questions in advance to email@example.com with the subject "Panel Questions."
Absolutely! Covenant 360 is a time for you to experience life at Covenant, and is customizable to your unique personality and needs. Although we highly recommend attending activities like the Welcome Meeting, ResLife Event, and other informational sessions, attendance is not required. There will also be plenty of low-key activities for you to participate in such as lawn and board games or chilling in the Student Lounge, and you can always head back to your room if you need some time to yourself. Introvert or extrovert, there will be current students, faculty, and staff ready to welcome you to campus, answer questions, talk to you about Covenant, and help you make the most of your time here.
Our Athletic Events Calendar contains all the details about athletic events happening on campus.
Check out the Covenant College Theatre page for more information about current productions.
On your online Covenant 360 registration form you can include any special needs or additional accommodations needed under "Health Concerns." You can also contact the campus visit coordinator at 706.419.1127 to tell us more about your needs.
Your parents are welcome and encouraged, although not required, to participate in Covenant 360 activities and events. After the welcome meeting on Thursday evening, we invite parents to attend their own reception while the students attend a ResLife event. On Friday, parents can observe classes, attend chapel, go on a campus tour, participate in the Covenant 360 informational session/panel, and explore Chattanooga. We recognize that each family is different and invite you and your parents to attend these activities either together or independently according to what best meets your family's needs.
