President's Message


We are so pleased you are perusing our virtual campus!  We are in full swing this spring with baseball, softball, and basketball events as well as watching renovation in our library; scheduled for completion this summer.  New campus technology is being installed across the entire campus funded by an  Appalachian Regional Commission Grant received last fall and will be operational in the fall. It is an exciting time on campus as our seniors are deep in the midst of completing their senior capstone projects, preparing for Commencement on May 10, 2019; and of course, many other students plan to enroll in summer classes.

We will host several events on campus this spring that are hallmarks of Hiwassee College! We will be hosting our Equine Competition here on Saturday, May 4, with very talented students bringing their best horse riding techniques in hopes of winning in their respective events.  Also on May 4, will be our 13thAnnual  Step-into-Spring event that supports campus beautification. 

Whether you are interested in one of our Seven Centers of Excellence majors or minors, or perhaps you are not quite sure of your major, we are here to help you “find your way” on your college journey.  You will find faculty and staff ready to coach and mentor you as you make decisions for yourself.  Our students are welcoming, inviting, and encouraging individually and through our many student organizations or simply sharing shrimp tacos at the Grille! Please join us for a visit and learn more about what it means to be a Tiger!

I hope to see you on campus soon!
