Boiling Springs, North Carolina

It’s More Than an Address. It’s Our Family.

Home Is Where Our Heart Is

Nestled into the foothills of North Carolina, Boiling Springs is more than just another rural mountain post office. It’s a close-knit community. It’s a family. It’s our home.

The town offers students and faculty a charming setting for academic, athletic, and recreational pursuits. From the friendly faces to the boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops, and stores – our town is part of our family. 

But there is so much more to see and do in our backyard.

The Mountains are Calling

Whether you’re grabbing a tube at the Greenway for an afternoon on the river or swinging by the local coffee shop on your way out to Crowder’s Mountain for a day hike, our backyard is an incredible place to spend your college years. Head over to our neighboring city of Shelby for the flannel-mandatory Cleveland County fair in the Fall. Or, just stroll the streets, taking in the Blue Ridge vistas while you visit the shops, museums and galleries. Wherever you look, there are opportunities for food, fun, adventure and discovery outdoors.

Big City Adventures

Beyond our 225-acre campus, and the rolling Blue Ridge foothills, you’ll find plenty more to do in our surrounding larger metropolitan areas. With an hour or less of driving, you can easily be cheering with the crowds in Charlotte’s bustling uptown sports scene, strolling through Greenville’s destination downtown with its award-winning parks, restaurants, and arts scene, or exploring the offbeat culture and charm of Asheville.  

From the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte to the Blue Ridge Parkway our Dawgs get around.
