Update on Perspective

In light of the COVID-19 concern circling the globe, the decision has been made to cancel Perspective Sewanee for April 16-17, 2020.  We would like to minimize the possibility of anyone being infected, specifically because this event is designed to overnight host students in the residence halls. We are offering opportunities to engage with us to gain information from current students, faculty and staff virtually. We want to make sure you are aware of the resources available to you from the comfort of your living room. Stay informed, be kind to one another, and stay healthy.
