Welcome returning students back home. And to new students welcome to your new academic home, American Baptist College affectionately called "Holy Hill." In the midst of the sweltering heat of summer days, the faculty and staff have been excitedly working to get the Holy Hill ready for you. According to a national data-based survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Education that included all colleges and universities in the country, American Baptist College is listed as the best bargain for the most affordable collegiate education you can receive in Tennessee. So welcome to the best bargain for higher education in town!

All of the College's resources, the entire faculty and staff are dedicated to providing you the best education possible.

We all are committed to during our best to help you achieve this goal of becoming the kind of moral thinkers and leaders needed by your family, church, and community.

I can't wait for you to see our campus worship space in the Library Chapel! On the lower level of the Library, the computer lab also has been improved to better accommodate your internet and technology needs. The "ABC Café" is the place for a good mean on campus when hunger strikes. It will be open for lunch and dinner in John Lewis and Julius Scruggs Leadership Development Center.

The door of the President's office is open to each of you to set a time to talk about how things are going during the course of the semester. "Education plus character" is the way Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. defined education. Let's us make this kind of education real at American Baptist College.
