    Sewanee is a writing intensive school--most students decide on English or Psychology majors; its best to come in expecting a lot of reading and essay writing. In addition, don't be afraid to ask talk to teachers. Most teachers would be more than willing to just sit down with you whether at the on campus coffeeshop, in the dining hall, or in their office. These relationships are key to bright academic and career based futures.

    If you're looking at Sewanee for it's size, look into other liberal arts schools as well. Even if you expect a party culture, it can be quite a shock in comparison to the academic side that is advertised.

    If you want to be an engineer like myself, I recommend coming to Sewanee despite it being a liberal arts college because of the broad spectrum of skills and perspectives this kind of education will give you. It will definitely differentiate you from all the other engineers. Bring a bike to campus unless you want to walk everywhere (walking isn't that bad; it is a small campus) The PRE program is a good choice if you can do it (costs $250 extra)
