Most Helpful Review for Sewanee-The University of the South

The classes here challenge me greatly. In high school I got A's with little to no studying, especially my freshman and sophomore years. This is only my first semester here and I only have one A the last time I checked (everything else is a B, though!). I've learned how to manage my time better and how to study better (still needs work, though). The classes themselves are fun and engaging, and I am learning about myself as well as about the course material.

    The academic opportunities offered are great, although there is far more of a party culture than I had expected. The small, isolated campus of 13,000 acres really only lends outdoor recreation as a getaway, leading many students toward alcohol. However, hungover or not, there is always a friendly air about campus.

    The University of the South is essentially a big community. You will make lots of friends, you will have a lot of fun at frat parties, there is plenty of opportunity for community service and leadership positions in various clubs. Also, the Sewanee Domain is 13,000 acres big and contains over 50 miles of trails, and the Sewanee Outing Program takes groups hiking, canoeing, and caving regularly.

    Sewanee is an overpriced, obnoxious institution that is geared for the wealthy or the financially strapped. This is no place for the middle class. Do not spend good money on a school where you won't get your money back.

    Overall, good school. Sewanee lacks diversity. Academically difficult.

    The campus domain is large and beautiful with gothic architecture and plenty of nature. The people are generally very friendly and approachable, both as staff and students, and most of the professors attempt to help you in any way they can so that as a student you are in a position to do your best.

    Sewanee is the most beautiful schools a person could every possibly attend. The people here are friendly, nice and help. Overall If you don't choose Sewanee ( the school that looks like Hogwarts) then where are you choosing to attend. #YSR

    Sewanee is filled with a wonderful sense of community, one that is found is few other schools. The outdoor environment complements it spectacularly, providing infinite opportunities for hiking, climbing, running and most importantly, exploring. While these are the most positive aspects of such a unique place, Sewanee also has a thriving social/party culture which, depending on the person, can be a huge incentive to apply or remain at the school, or exactly the opposite.

    The community based approach that the University of the South makes, is fantastic. 13,000 acres of open opportunities. The fun awaits your arrival.
