hinking and doing aren’t two separate activities. Thinking, in fact, may very well be the most important part of doing. After all, if you don’t know how to think, how could you know what to do? At Bryan College, we view college as a time to take a step back from a breakneck world that seems to demand heedless action, and say, “Wait a minute—slow down—let’s think about this.” Bryan’s top-flight professors don’t tell their students what to think. They teach their students how to think. The result? Graduates who are equipped to go out and make a difference in a world that needs Christ.

At Bryan, we view college as a time to take a step back from a breakneck world that seems to demand heedless action, and say, “Wait a minute—slow down—let’s think about this.”
We are educating students to become servants of Christ to make a difference in today’s world.
Bryan’s top-flight professors don’t tell their students what to think. They teach their students how to think. The result? Graduates who are equipped to go out and make a difference in a world that needs Christ.
different by design When you come to campus, you’ll see just how different Bryan College is. Don’t be surprised if students you haven’t met yet come over to say hello and give a word of welcome. Don’t be surprised if you see professors sitting with students in the dining hall continuing conversations from class. Don’t be surprised to find that the Bryan community just seems a little happier than the other colleges you might visit.
In a world that moves too fast, Bryan College gives students the space to think, not just to do.
And why wouldn’t Bryan students be happy? They are in a safe, closeknit community where they are challenged and stretched every day: academically, spiritually, and relationally. And it’s all happening on a beautiful campus in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, surrounded by abundant opportunities for outdoor activities, and less than forty miles from the city of Chattanooga.
