When most people hear “Cleveland,” they tend to think of the Ohio city known for its sports teams the Browns and Indians, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, not a small town in Tennessee. But the Cleveland in Tennessee, and specifically Cleveland State Community College, has garnered national recognition due to its aggressive approach to helping students become stronger in math.
That recognition illustrates, along with the continued development of its programs and facilities, the college’s commitment to ensuring students’ success. In addition to offering a slew of support services – from career counseling and exploration services to minority student programs – the college is currently updating the technology building, after receiving a sizable financial gift of $150,000 from Wacker Chemical Corporation North America.
Nestled among rolling hills and scenic valleys in Southeast Tennessee, the school offers both beauty and convenience of location. Only a half an hour from Chattanooga, the school sits off of Interstate 75. The city of Cleveland itself, while self-described as growing while maintaining a small town feel, offers plenty for students to do outside of class, including a nature park, golfing, eight city parks, shopping, and restaurants.
