Starting fall 2016, students will have access to the new Bulldog Fitness Complex!

The years you spend in college will be some of the most formative of your life, filled with exciting and scary changes. You will learn how to balance work with a social life, form new and closer relationships, develop personal and career goals, and gain the independence that comes with growing into an adult.
Tennessee Wesleyan provides its students with a variety of options to fit the students' health and wellness needs. Depending on your needs, you may meet individually with the Vice President for Student Life or the Chaplain.
