We Asked Students, What's your overall opinion of this school?

Trey

Campus is small but I love the university.

Caroline

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!

Literally just had to fill this whole thing out again twice. Not detecting my college right now...............................................................................................................................................................................

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.

Emily

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.

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.

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.

Mo

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.

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.

Hands down the best school ever

Anna

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.
