Here you can be as engaged or as laid-back as you like. Continue doing the things you currently enjoy or explore new opportunities to add to your repertoire. Learn to paint. Sing in the chorus. Take part in a play. Walk the Greenway. Volunteer on- or off-campus. Or welcome a new neighbor during Friday Happy Hour in the Table Rock Lounge, where you can see every prominent peak for miles around.

Graceful Living in


Our 52-acre campus is less than 10 minutes from downtown Morganton, known as "Nature's Playground". It's the trailhead for more than 28 hiking, biking, and walking trails. But there are just as many attractions to explore in town, including restaurants, craft breweries, wineries, book shops, art galleries, boutiques, Broadway shows, festivals, free concerts, farmers markets, and more. Morganton may be small in size, but its capacity for fun knows no bounds.
