Welch College is located in a quiet, residential community in Nashville, Tennessee, the home of at least 38 colleges, universities, and technical schools. This concentration of educational institutions gives the city the well-earned title, “Athens of the South.” The city is also undergoing an unprecedented renaissance in several areas. The fine arts culture of Nashville will enable students to expand their knowledge in ways that complement the education they receive. The Tennessee Performing Arts Center, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center,, and The Frist Center for the Visual Arts bring to the city a wide variety of refined music, drama, and art exhibitions. The music and recording industry are, of course, renowned worldwide.
If you want the best of both worlds—a small campus community with all of the advantages of a thriving metropolitan area—then Welch College is the place for you. The campus is only five minutes from downtown Nashville on West End Avenue, and a short drive to other parts of the city.
Nashville is known as “The Athens of the South” because the city is home to so many colleges and universities. The city boasts of many beautiful parks and recreation areas, professional athletic events, theatre productions, music venues of all types, shopping areas, and historical sites. Free Will Baptist churches in Middle Tennessee welcome college students to find a home there while they are away from their home churches.
