ETSU is located in one of the most scenic areas of the United States! Our campus is nestled in the Appalachian Mountains in the northeast corner of Tennessee, near the state lines of Virginia and North Carolina.

We enjoy four distinct seasons of spring, summer, fall, and winter. In warm weather, you can cool down by kayaking or paddleboarding on nearby lakes and rivers, and in the winter go skiing in the mountains. Hiking, camping, and mountain biking can be enjoyed all year long. You can rent outdoor equipment from the ETSU Center for Physical Activity and go on guided adventure trips with other Buccaneers!
