Ready to get schooled? City Editor Kristen here. 👋 I recently got the chance to go back to school and live a day in the life of a ChattState student. From picnics by the amphitheater to quiet time in the chill room, ChattState has something for every student to enjoy.

What we tried

We had the opportunity to tour ChattState’s 150-acre campus to check out some of the amenities + resources available for students on a daily basis — spoiler alert, there are a ton.

Dr. Gladys H. Crates Memorial Amphitheater
Students often gather by the amphitheater to listen to the student-run radio show + the space hosts a plethora of outdoor events. Bonus: we were told one of the best picnic spots on campus is behind the amphitheater.

Kolwyck Library & Information Commons (KLIC)
The KLIC has space for students to gather in groups to study in private rooms or quiet areas for students to work without being disturbed. The library also posts all the upcoming events + programs students can participate in.

Chattanooga State Cafés
ChattState’s campus has two cafés for students to grab meals from, along with plenty of snack bars. Students even have access to a Be Caffeinated location on campus to get their coffee fix.

What not to miss:

If you’re in need of a study break, or even a quick way to get in some exercise, you don’t want to miss out on ChattState’s access to the Tennessee Riverwalk. One of the riverwalk’s access points is right on campus for students to walk, ride bikes, or sit alongside the Tennessee River.

Another great resource for students is the Chill Room, a room where students can be completely alone to study or take a breather from coursework in a quiet space. The room is equipped with dim lighting, bean bags, activities, and other materials to help students relax.

What we’re still talking about:

The ChattState Bookstore. If you need extra study materials, books for class, or find yourself missing your laptop charger — the bookstore has you covered for all your daily needs. Consider this your one-stop-shop for all things school-related, plus you can pick up some really cool ChattState gear for yourself or family members.
