Welcome to Toccoa Falls College! Our school is a private, nonprofit, Christian liberal arts institution located in the foothills of beautiful northeast Georgia. Established in 1907 by founder R. A. Forrest, our school’s mission is to ’cultivate a uniquely Christian learning community that integrates the pursuit of truth with godly character to produce graduates prepared both personally and professionally for service.’ The college works with many evangelical, Christian groups and is an affiliate college of the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination. An important part of grooming future leaders is to provide the best in academic curriculum to prepare students for the future. Toccoa Falls College has been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since 1983. A variety of undergraduate degree programs and certificate programs are offered through the College’s four schools; the School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Christian Ministries, the School of Professional Studies and our new Fetterman School of Nursing which opens Fall 2017. Our total enrollment figure is just over 1,200 (all undergraduates) including residential and online. Our small 14:1 ratio facilitates an open door policy and excellent one-on-one advising from faculty to student. Our beautiful campus sits on 1,100-acres in the rural foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where students and visitors to the campus can enjoy the gorgeous views of the mountain scenery while enjoying the many outdoor activities the area provides; such as rock-climbing, whitewater rafting, hiking, camping and more. Recently ranked among the ’Top 50 Most Beautiful Christian Colleges & Universities’ in the US, the campus is home to the historic ’Toccoa Falls’ waterfall. At 186 feet, the waterfall is taller than Niagra Falls and the tallest falls east of the Mississippi River. Surrounded by dense woods, the campus itself features several facilities built in a modern architectural style, including the Grace Chapel and Performing Arts Center.
The Division of Student Affairs is committed to growing and engaging students outside of the classroom. Our mission is ’To develop students holistically through programs and initiatives that promote a dynamic Christ centered community.’ We encourage self-exploration and to thoughtfully embrace differences. We strive to make our communities better and live in a manner that is characterized by mutual respect and civility. Helping students feel supported and cared for are hallmarks in each one of our Departments. We also hope to laugh and be authentic so that our students feel comfortable to do so also. Student life at TFC is filled with opportunities to get involved, develop a sense of independence and resiliency, and live with others from different backgrounds as well as those who share a common purpose. The Division of Student Affairs invites all students to get involved and make a positive impact in the world around them. We’re here to help you do just that.
