Athletic Press Box
Toccoa Falls College recently added two new press boxes to its athletic fields to allow for announcing and live streaming of its soccer and baseball games. On Friday, January 18th, First Citizens Bank of Toccoa generously donated to the construction of the project by paying for one of the press boxes which will be named the First Citizens Bank press box. The First Citizens Bank press box will be located on the TFC Baseball field.
Mr. Tommy Moon, Vice President, Financial Sales Manager for First Citizens Bank presented a $40K check to Dr. Bob Myers, President of Toccoa Falls College. Dr. Myers commented on the event stating, “We are so very thankful to First Citizens Bank for their many years of faithful service and support of TFC as well as their generous contribution.”
The Furnish Forrest project that was launched during Homecoming 2018 proved be a huge success and was fully funded shortly after the start of the new year! We have already placed the order for 24 sets of NEW modular furniture to be delivered in August and installed prior to the start of the 2019 Fall Semester. The renovation of the first floor of Forrest C-Wing includes removing the built-in furniture that was installed in 1978, as well as updating plumbing, flooring, and other aspects of these twelve rooms. The new furniture that will be installed gives our students over 50 configurations and the opportunity to make their dorm room feel more like their own. During the Furnish Forrest campaign, we have been blessed by the stories our students and alumni shared about living in Forrest Hall. For many TFC men, there is a lasting sense of community that started while they were residents in Forrest Hall. Their stories of brotherhood, discipleship, and spiritual growth are proof that this project is worth the investment. If you are still interested in learning more about Furnish Forrest or want to watch some of the student videos that were shared, click here.

Disc Golf Course
TFC is excited to announce the opening of our new disc golf course! The nine basket course was just recently completed and is located in the area known as the floodplains, with the first tee just across the from the footbridge. A special thank you is owed to the numerous alumni whose giving efforts funded the project.
