Cumberland University, a private institution located in central Tennessee, has been a highly-regarded academy and the site of student living since it was established in 1842 by members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. A decade later, the school opened an affiliated law school, the first in in Tennessee and west of the Appalachian Mountains. Today, the university has expanded to accommodate more than 1,000 undergraduates and 300 postgraduates, who reside in both on campus student housing and in university apartments in the institution’s hometown of Lebanon, Tennessee. The town of about 20,000 residents is called “Cedar City,” for its leafy, residential streets. The Cumberland University campus is located just west of the downtown, putting many of the city’s attractions and conveniences within walking distance from most off campus housing options.
Academically, Cumberland University offers a broad education based in the liberal arts. Students may earn bachelor’s degrees in about 20 disciplines and pursue about 30 minors through the School of Business and Technology, School of Nursing, School of Education and Public Service, School of Liberal Arts and Sciences, School of Music and the Arts and School of Professional Development. Graduate students may earn Master’s degrees in the Fine Arts, Education, Business Administration, Public Service and Sport and Exercise Pedagogy. To date, 14 U.S. governors, more than 80 members of Congress, two Supreme Court justices, and three U.S. ambassadors have participated in student living at Cumberland University.
Off campus housing opens opportunities for students both on campus and in the community. Students at Cumberland may find a university apartment in Lebanon that positions them nicely for the Wilson County Fair, which was called the state’s best County Fair by Busy Bee Trader Magazine. In past years, the event has attracted more than half a million visitors.
