Student Life

Connecting is easy in Johnson University Tennessee’s Christ-centered environment. More than a college or a campus, Johnson Tennessee is a community. Since 1893, the faculty, staff, and students have been committed to developing an atmosphere that values relationship, spiritual formation, tradition, and service. JUTN’s beautiful Knoxville campus provides the ideal backdrop for lively fellowship or moments of quiet reflection.

On a typical day, Johnson Tennessee students can be found in a group study session over coffee in the Underground Starbucks Coffee Shop, having dinner with a friend in the River Grille, or meeting for a small group in the dorms. Weekends could bring an on-campus concert, a production directed and performed by students, or a gathering of Royals at an athletic event.

The entire campus turns out for city-wide service day, Battle of the Classes on Founders’ Day, and the annual water slide event. Sports lovers can find their niche in campus intramural sports, while musicians are encouraged to participate in a campus choir or chapel worship group.

Although there is no shortage of activity on the Johnson Tennessee campus, students often venture out to take in the breathtaking beauty of the nearby Smoky Mountains or experience the culture and hospitality of the Knoxville area.
