Sewanee’s culture of excellence leads students to discover their potential, in and out of the classroom. During their four years here, Sewanee students explore multiple directions, wear a variety of hats, and cross disciplinary boundaries to shape identities for themselves; they are vibrant members of our shared community.

Come discover what you can do—and what you can discover about yourself along the way. The staff members in the Office of Student Life are ready to help you on your adventure!

Live At Sewanee, it’s not just where you live but how you live. Over 95% of undergrads live in our residential communities, from larger halls to tightly knit houses, and we share one “dining room”. Living in community means accepting responsibilities and living honorably. (New students can learn about life at Sewanee here.)

Support Life at Sewanee is great . . . except when it isn’t. You may find you need support for one reason or another; you might feel sick, or you might need someone to talk to. Maybe classes are giving you trouble or you want help addressing a learning difference. Or you might feel discriminated against or want a “safe space.” Click “Support” for resources, or click directly: HealthCounselingAcademicDisabilityDiscriminationSafe SpaceClass AttendanceFaculty Advising Resources
