President's Welcome

Welcome to Tennessee Wesleyan College.
Whether you're a prospective or current student, or a prospective or current parent, we're glad you took the time to look us over.

As president of Tennessee Wesleyan, I would like to invite you to explore TWC and discover our rich tradition of academic excellence within a caring community. TWC is truly interested in your personal and professional success. Our graduates live throughout the region and serve their communities as teachers, nurses, business executives, and civic leaders.
You will find our location, situated in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, is less than an hour’s drive to Knoxville and Chattanooga, and surrounded by lakes, rivers and mountains for outdoor recreation.

Tennessee Wesleyan is steadily growing, but not too fast. The one-on-one relationship you develop with professors sets us apart from large, impersonal universities. We offer over 30 programs of study from Business to Education, Criminal Justice to Exercise Science. In addition to our undergraduate programs, we offer a Master of Science in Curriculum Leadership with additional Master's degrees coming in the future.

We take pride in our relationship with the community. TWC students and employees provide countless hours of volunteer service that helps students understand leadership and their potential impact on the world.

When my wife and I moved on campus in the Summer of 2011, we were greeted by a warm, caring campus community and I know you will have the same experience. I invite you to contact our Admissions Office and schedule a visit for you and your family. You will be able to see first hand the quality of the educational experience and the ways that we can help you achieve your personal and professional goals. Please stop by the Old College building and say hello. I’d love to meet you.

Best regards,

Dr. Harley Knowles
