What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I think Sewanee- The University of the South is the southern equivalent of an IVY League University. The academics are what sets Sewanee apart from other private universities in the south. What is most impressive is the availability of our professors and their genuine concern for each individual student. Sewanee is quite unlike any other University and a once in a lifetime sort of education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Most of my professors made it their priority to make our priority academics. They held regular office hours and were accessible. The classes I took varied widely in rigor and intellectual stimulation. However, most professors seemed interested in facilitating and promoting rewarding and interesting dialogue. Many students, including myself, were very disappointed and unhappy with the lack of dining options. Also, this school is extremely expensive. The school should prioritize making all dorms air conditioned and mold-free before raising millions of dollars to do unnecessary renovations to already-nice spaces on campus. Most of the students party most of the week. There are parties to attend probably every night of the week, although I only ever went out one or two nights on the weekend. The parking situation also bothered many students while I was there. There are not enough parking spaces for students, staff, employees, and visitors. Even if there were no visitors, there would not be enough parking. Oftentimes I had to park 15 minutes away from my dorm because there was no parking. After paying $75 for a parking permit, I really wanted to be able to park near the building where I lived.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sewanee- The University of the South has a breath taking view which is settled upon a mountain in a sucluded setting. They have a wonderful buffet for the students. The faculity to students is 13-1 so very small classes. The only draw back to this campus is no stores close if you need anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sewanee is academically amazing. However, it is an extremely toxic environment. Expect to know of, and be expected to ignore, multiple unprosecuted or unpunished rapists before you graduate. If you’re unlucky enough to be assaulted, expect incompetent assistance from the wellness center — if you can get off the waiting list.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It has beautiful places to hike and friendly people. The academics are hard but it will definitely pay off. This is the perfect school for anyone that wants to have a great education. All professors are hands on with their students and it makes for a perfect student-teacher relationship.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I think Sewanee is a great school. There's a lot of things to do for fun if you like outdoors stuff but other than that there really isn't much. The closest cities to Sewanee are about an hour away. The academics are really awesome, however, and I've never had a negative experience in a class or with a professor.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sewanee has my heart and soul. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else and having the same experiences and relationships with friends, faculty, and staff. There are plenty of opportunities for students to work, play, and be healthy. The miles and miles of trails, the welcoming community, and the traditions are some of what makes Sewanee so great. YSR!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sewanee is an amazing school, It very academic and rigorous. However it is on top of a mountain so shops and store are limited, there are some things to do besides party but not a ton. There is always something party wise happening but it doesn't mean that you have to partake in drinking or drugs.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back 2 years to my senior year of high school, I would tell myself to keep a peace of mind during the process of applying to college. I would tell myself to continue to have faith in God and His plan for my life I would sat to continue to play my heart out in volleyball and know I will get to continue playing the sport I love in college. I would also tell myself that everything works out how it is supposed to in the end and that I need only to continue working as hard as I can and submit my best work. In regard to life at college, I would tell myself to stay true to my values at Sewanee, as I have. I would tell myself to take advantage of everything Sewanee has to offer and be open to new experiences, but to not overload myself in getting involved. Lastly, I would remind myself in every situation to remember who I am and what God expects of me as my father always told me when I was younger.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I guess the worst thing about my school would probably be the work hard play hard mentality that is very prevelant across campus. Because Sewanee is such an academically challenging school, many of its students feel they should party as hard as they study; however, it is not impossible to stay away from this mentality and keep a good head on your shoulders. Also, the staff around campus have the student's best interests at heart and are always helpful when a student is in need.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag most about how Sewanee is a place where you can pursue anything and everything you want. Having been a very involved student in high school, I love Sewanee because I can be extremely involved around campus. To me, Sewanee is the only place in this world I could play varsity volleyball, be a bible study leader, an involved member of a sorority, a pre-med student, a work study employee of the school art gallery, work for dorm staff, take the occasional hike, and still have an awesome social life with a great group of friends.
