I am grateful for Chattanooga State because during my time there, I was openly encouraged to learn who I was at the core.
I met many great people, had fantastic instructors and learned a lot about a variety of subjects, but the true value of my education was my journey of self-discovery. After changing my major
The Student Activities and Athletic departments sponsored the Tiger Tailgate Party at ChattState on Friday, Nov. 13th. The event was designed to build team spirit and strengthen support of the talented athletes that make up ChattState’s basketball team. It was also a lot of fun! Enjoy the highlights here:

I am grateful to Chattanooga State because they gave me the tools to achieve more than even I thought was possible with my career.
If someone had told me 10 years ago that I could be anything, from a bookkeeper to setting up the entire accounting department of a multimillion dollar company with an Associates degree in accounting, I’m not sure I would have believed them. That’s what happened and I can thank Chattanooga State for giving me the education and guidance to be where I am today. From accounting classes to interviewing and writing a resume, I feel like my professors at Chattanooga State made sure I was prepared to start my career in any accounting job.

Being a First in the Family Scholar has allowed me to attend college and not face financial struggles. I have been enabled to pay for my books without applying for student loans. It has also allowed to continue my education in hopes of graduating with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Non-Destructive Testing Technology in the Spring of 2017.

I am grateful to Chattanooga State because the classes I took and time I spent as manager of the women’s basketball team prepared me to continue my education and athletic endeavors (specifically as a student athletic trainer and manager) at UTC and a summer job at Engel Stadium as the clubhouse attendant for the visiting baseball team. As a shy person who loves sports but is not a good athlete, my time as manager of the team gave me the confidence to pursue my degree while being involved in college athletics.
