The University of the South is an institution of the Episcopal Church dedicated to the increase of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom, pursued in close community and in full freedom of inquiry, and enlightened by Christian faith in the Anglican tradition, to the end that students may be prepared to search for truth, seek justice for all, preserve liberty under law, and serve God and humanity.
The College of Arts and Sciences is committed to the development of the whole person through a liberal arts education of exceptional quality. Outstanding students work in close contact with distinguished faculty in a demanding course of humane and scientific study that prepares them for lives of high achievement. Providing rich opportunities for leadership and spiritual growth while grounding its community on a pledge of honor, Sewanee enables students to live with grace, integrity, and a reverent concern for the world.
The School of Theology educates women and men to serve the broad whole of the Episcopal Church in ordained and lay vocations. The School develops leaders who are learned, skilled, informed by the Word of God, and committed to the mission of Christ’s church, in the Anglican tradition of forming disciples through a common life of prayer, learning, and service. Sewanee’s seminary education and world-wide programs equip people for ministry through the gift of theological reflection in community.

Nearly everyone is friendly, and there are many different activities to become involved in. Every week, there are free classic movies, sober activities, and clubs to participate in. A large amount of students are involved in Greek life, and there are a myriad of parties throughout the week to attend, if that is the kind of thing you enjoy. In all, the food is very good compared to other college food I have had, the people are willing to chat, the professors can help you outside of class, and the location is beautiful (although the weather is completely spastic. If you come here, you will learn the meaning of the mythic Sewanee fog).» Read More
Sewanee is all about community. There are so many ways to get involved if you look for them. Once you do, you become a part of web of people that care about you and want you to succeed. Sewanee's small class size facilitates this, allowing you to develop close relationships with faculty members. Sewanee graduates return again and again to The Mountain because this sense of community draws them back.» Read More
I love Sewanee, to the point where I can't imagine myself at any other school. I have a great group of friends and a lot of really great opportunities available here, not to mention access to nature that most schools that I visited were really lacking.» Read More
I love being here! The students I have met are all extremely friendly and welcoming. I have already met tons of students who share the same interests as I do. I never thought I'd find someone who I wanted to be roommates with for next year so quickly! She and I get along amazingly well, and we've only known each other for about a semester! The campus itself is beautiful and, though I have yet to actually get out and explore it, my friends all love the hikes. Believe it or not, I love just sitting and talking with my teachers. I have always enjoyed talking with adults and my teachers from high school, so it naturally carried over into college. I am a terribly shy person at first, but with my teachers here, I've found I can be extremely relaxed and open with them. They listen and understand, and they are more than willing to help with problems unrelated to academics. Plus, they are just cool people to hang out with!» Read More
