Clubs & Organizations
College years should be memorable ones both inside and outside the classroom. To that end, Tennessee Wesleyan strives to help students find a special place. Opportunities abound for musical, dramatic, athletic, religious, social, and professional activities. A major boon of attending a small college is that the joys of such activities are heightened by that special caring spirit that forms such a part of the Tennessee Wesleyan experience.
Tennessee Wesleyan College maintains a staff of competent, well-trained safety officers who are contracted through Murray Guard. The Department of Campus Safety is located in Townsend Hall. Campus Safety Officers maintain regular 24-hour patrols to all areas of the campus. Special attention is paid to the residence halls, lobby areas, and parking lots around the campus.
Campus Safety Officers will escort students, faculty, and staff to their residence halls, cars, or other locations on campus at any time if the person(s) feels uncomfortable walking alone.
