Our city's renaissance has received international attention, and we're just getting started.
The University is only a few blocks from downtown Chattanooga, a city both highly industrial and rich in natural beauty. Claiming more than 600 industries, Chattanooga lies at the foot of Lookout and Signal mountains where the Tennessee River forms Moccasin Bend. These sites were pivotal during the U.S. Civil War and today are icons of the beauty of this "Scenic City."
The cultural environment of Chattanooga is enhanced by contributions from the University and the many civic organizations that support the arts through dramatic productions, concerts and art exhibits. Ten city parks, seven public golf courses, and a 35,400 acre lake provide a variety of recreational activities.
With a population of about 162,170 in a metropolitan statistical area of over 466,647 people, Chattanooga is easily accessible from all parts of the nation by air and bus.
