Bicentennial Video

The Everyday and the Unexpected

Celebrating its 200th year, Maryville College readies itself and its students for next-generation challenges and opportunities. Perfectly situated between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the city of Knoxville, Maryville is a place where students experience the everyday comforts of a welcoming community and beautiful campus. They also find the unexpected: the study of everything combined with extensive career preparation, an emphasis on self-exploration combined with a commitment to service, a values-based foundation combined with universal acceptance of difference.

President Dr. Tom BogartMembers of the Maryville College Community,
Our Bicentennial year has arrived! The main goals for the Bicentennial are for more people to know about Maryville College, realize and celebrate the College’s influence in the region and support the important work happening on campus and beyond. We hope you will take time this year and join us for the many events planned in 2019. It is my hope that in our celebratory year, you not only learn more about the ways in which this historic institution has grown and advanced over the last 200 years, but also how the College has stayed true to some very timeless values.

Dr. Tom Bogart, President
January, 2019
