Contact Maria Watters to schedule a personalized campus visit, including classroom visits, tours, and one-on-one time with a member of the admission staff.
Campus visits for educational groups
Please note that in-person group visit opportunities have currently been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are pleased to be able to offer a virtual Q & A session with a member of our counseling staff and/or a virtual campus tour via Zoom for educational groups. Register here to connect your group with us-virtually!
Programming is available for larger groups of students (10 or more students).
- Group visits are available Tuesday through Thursday with the exception of some blackout dates. We do not offer group visits on Saturdays or Sundays. We will do our best to accommodate your request; however, due to overlapping requests or staff limitations, we may not be able to schedule your visit on your requested date.
- All groups with students must provide one adult chaperone for every 10 students. Campus tours will be led by current Sewanee students, and chaperones are asked to accompany these tours.
- We ask your group to respect Sewanee and its students, faculty, staff, and grounds.

Visit Options for Students in 8th grade or younger
We are excited about your early interest in Sewanee! Unfortunately, we are unable to offer guided campus tours for students in 8th grade or under. You are more than welcome to explore Sewanee on your own to find out a little about college life on our campus. Feel free to use our map of central campus and/or a fun scavenger hunt option for your younger group.
