EQB AWARDS DAY - April 1, 2024

At Sewanee, we know a thing or two about celebrations. From convocations and comps (don't worry, you'll learn what those are when you get here) to graduations, we know how to mark an occasion.

This invitation-only event for admitted students is a chance for you to be recognized for the huge achievement of earning a top merit-based scholarship to the University of the South.

So come join us on the Mountain to see what it means to be in a place that finds as much joy in your achievements as you do, pushing you to draw from your untapped capacity to be awesome.
