    Although Sewanee is far away from the city, there's still plenty to do. There are many athletic events that students can attend in addition to panels, events, and festivals held my the many organizations the campus is home to. Nature is also a big part of the school's appeal, and as such there are many hiking trails and lakes that can be taken advantage of. The Sewanee Outing Program holds weekly outing events that include hikes, canoeing, rafting, swimming, and more. For those interested, Greek life also holds events open to the Sewanee community. If your idea of a good time is shopping, then unfortunately, thats a luxury that is easily done by computer unless you have a car and can drive the hour to Chatanooga to go to the mall.

    A lot of students drink and party for fun. Others go on hikes, some do both. There isn't much else to do, unless you have a car.

    To continue what I said earlier, the Sewanee Outing Program takes groups hiking, swimming, caving, and canoeing. There are a lot of club sports that anyone can participate in. The most fun you will have is probably on the dance floor at one of the many parties that happen during the year, and all parties are open door.. Unfortunately, Sewanee mountain is not a city, and therefore Sewanee will be a completely different experience than you would get at most other colleges.

    A jog to the cross or to green's view is always fun. People often volunteer with the outreach office. On weekends, you can never be bored!!

    Drink, party, drugs. Repeat. Not much else to do if you want to create a healthy lifestyle. Seriously, this school is not big enough to find an alternative.

    Much of Sewanee is centered around Greek Life. However, the parties are almost always open (and inclusive). This attitude is consistent with the general culture of Sewanee, as many who are not affiliated with a Greek organization still have an easy time hanging out at Fraternities (parties or not) throughout the weekend. There are non-alcohol-related activities sponsored by the University, as well.
