  • One of the most beautiful University Chapels in the United States and perhaps the finest. Magnificent campus. An exceptional institution with superb English and Environmental/ Earth Studies departments. The School of Theology is the only graduate school and provides an overarching sense of stewardship that the entire school buys into. A surprising number of Rhodes Scholars churned out of there.
  • Beautiful historical buildings & grounds. Wonderful place to drive thru and explore the architecture or stop to have a picnic. Great hiking trails!
  • I've never been to a more beautiful college campus. Meeting the alumni and seeing the depth and breadth of their education makes me regret attending a large state university. I will be encouraging my own children to attend a small liberal-arts school like Sewanee.
  • I have read other reviews and it sound like a great college with good professors yet it also could be labeled as a "party college" which seems to be a problem but the classes and school itself sound very advanced
  • I love the tiger
