Describe your favorite campus traditions.

It is best known for its ties with the Episcopal Chrurch (hence the many Episcopalians), leading to a rather high percentage of middle-upper class white students. It is known as well for its "outdoorsy" setting. Once students attend, they also realize its great faculty involvement with students: students expect a close and personal relationship with their professors, and they get it. It's not uncommon to call a professor at home or to get a phone call from a professor. Many professors have the occasional dinner with students.

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

Students are often told that college will be the best four years of their life, as if they'll set foot on campus and immediately their life will become wonderful. This simply isn't true: for college to be the best four years of your life, you must be willing to make it the best four years of your life. Where you go to school actually matters less in the long run than the effort you put into the experience of being there. A student at a small school might become depressed that he is not making enough friends, griping that "there's no one like me there." What this really means is "I'm afraid people won't like me." Don't make the mistake of fear and then confuse it for disdain. There are people at every school that will like you, no matter how different you may be from them, but if you expect people to open their horizons and be friends with you, you must be willing to do the same. Do not be afraid to try new things, learn new things, and do new things, and every door at college will be open to you.

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

The tremendous lack of off-campus housing means that most (98% of) students have to live in dorms, with a roommate until they are seniors. If the dorms were nice, that would not be bad, but many dorms here do not even have air conditioning. While each dorm has a "common room" with cable, as well as a kitchen, no individual rooms have facilities like this; the dorms are cinder-block, non-descript boxes that are more like a prison cell than a college students' living quarters.

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

I definitely encourage campus visits. I college/university may look perfect on the internet but you may have a completely different view of it when your there in person. I know from experience. I visited a school in kentucky which i thought would be great, but when i got there i realized it wasnt the school for me.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I would refer this school to a person who is interested in a challenging educational atmosphere, a breathtaking campus, really great food, and new cultural experience.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I do not like the cold weather too much. Sewanee is on a mountain and is often cold and windy. Dont get the wrong idea, there are plenty of beautiful sunny days but i would prefer if there were more.
