  • Attending Sewanee gives you the college experience you always wanted. Wow! My daughter could not be happier here. Don’t be scared by the small size, this school has it all.  more »
  • If you are tooling along Interstate 24 (Between Nashville and Chattanooga) get off at exit 134 and drive the short 6 miles to The University Of The South in Sewanee. Why you ask? Because it is one of the most beautiful campuses you will ever see. Most buildings are Gothic style made from local stone. Check out the book store and get a cool T-shirt. Be awed by the 'All Saints Chapel' or the splendor of the 'Chapel of the Apostles'. Be wowed by the fireplace in 'Ayers Hall'. Look at the magnificent book shelves in the 'Jessie Ball duPont Library'. There so many other remarkable buildings to see - McClurg Hall, Snowden Admin Building. And if you are a hiker, try the Perimeter Trail to see awesome views from the top of the Cumberland Plateau.
  • Revoke Charlie Rose’s honorary degree. Stop passively tolerating campus rapists — and expecting students to do the same. Give students access to a competent, adequately-staffed mental health center — especially on a campus situated in a healthcare desert.
  • What an absolutely gorgeous campus. The chapel is breathtaking. It made me wish I could go to college again. A wonderfully small campus with big impact offers a quality education with plenty of majors to choose from especially if you love the outdoors and are interested in an environmental path, but don't let that stop you if you are looking for any other major. This gem of a university is top notch. Not only will you get a degree but you will enjoy the most stunning campus and a little ride up the road you can check out a view of the valley that can inspire even the most exhausted student.
  • Awesome place to go to school. Nice and hidden from the city world. Challenging classes, great friends, beautiful sunrises.
  • If you are looking for an Old School college experience, Sewanee is the place to go. The school's beautiful campus and focus on a traditional liberal arts education are hard to beat.
