Campus Visitors & Prospective Students

Beginning on July 20, you’ll be able to visit Sewanee and participate in a self-guided tour of campus. Admission counseling staff members are not currently available to meet with families, however we encourage you to explore our 13,000 acre Domain. Following your time on campus, we hope you’ll register for one of our virtual visits so that we can get to know you! A visit to the Domain (that's what we call our 13,000-acre campus) is the best way to determine if Sewanee is a good fit for you.
