Starting this week, Carson-Newman University is featured on Amazon Prime. Inclusion on the platform comes with the launch of season three of ‘The College Tour.’

Carson-Newman University is one of a limited number of universities in the southeast featured in the TV series. The program is the creation of Emmy-nominated and multi-award-winning producers. Hosted and produced by Amazing Race winner Alex Boylan, each episode highlights one college or university from across the country.

Carson-Newman’s episode explores the university’s location, Christ-centered mission, various programs, affordability, athletics and other areas of interest. According to Boylan, what Carson-Newman can provide students is certainly worth noting.

“It was awesome to get to travel to Jefferson City to visit campus,” Boylan said. “The warm sense of Christian community along with Carson-Newman’s beautiful location, makes it easy to see why students choose this university. We are so excited to have them as part of ‘The College Tour.’”

Danette Seale, acting vice president for Enrollment Management and Executive Director of Financial Aid, said being a part of ‘The College Tour’ helps a broad audience learn what all Carson-Newman can offer students looking at colleges.

“Our episode is an innovative way to help prospective students and families really see the fabric of our mission in a more authentic way than ever before. Anyone considering attending a Christian University will get to see what it’s truly like being a student at Carson-Newman.”

Along with Amazon Prime, season three of The College Tour is available on Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, and ‘The College Tour’ application.
