Tennesseans often note that the size and diversity of their state is not fully ­appreciated, though it encompasses part of the Mississippi River as well as Memphis, with its legendary blues scene, and the Great Smoky Mountains.

The four colleges we visited in the Volunteer State are equally varied, ranging from rural to urban campuses. But all these institutions blend cherished traditions with modern features and a certain Southern charm, helping to create a unique collegiate experience.
