Cookeville, a beautiful tree-lined city, is located on the eastern Highland Rim. Three major lakes and several state parks are nearby, and they all offer many opportunities for mountain biking, hiking, fishing and swimming. Although the campus is located in some of Tennessee's most beautiful countryside, it is only a little over one hour's drive from three of the state's metro areas - 82 miles east of Nashville, 109 miles west of Knoxville and 96 miles north of Chattanooga.
TTU has many clubs and organizations for students to join.
