Arrival & orientation

We cannot wait to welcome you in August! Over multiple weeks, Campus Life will organize the arrival and move-in of multiple new students to campus. Incoming students should consult with their Admission Counselor if they have questions regarding their arrival. 

  • New Students can participate in Finding Your Place, PRE, or their fall sport. Fall varsity athletes on the field hockey, football, soccer, and volleyball teams are unable to participate in FYP or PRE as this will conflict with pre-season practice. Read more on FYP & PRE below.
  • All incoming students will participate in New Student Orientation. 
  • Families are encouraged to attend New Student Orientation. 
  • International students should review arrival information from the Office of Global Citizenship.

The Sewanee Outing Program (SOP)

On SOP trips, students learn valuable leadership and technical skills while gaining a greater appreciation for the natural world.

Sewanee Outing Program's PRE Orientation (PRE)

PRE-Orientation offers incoming first year students the opportunity to get to know Sewanee in a unique and exciting atmosphere. While familiarizing themselves with the 13,000-acre Domain, students meet other first year students and upperclassmen in an environment that creates trust and establishes new friendships.

Whether rock climbing for the first time, crawling through winding passages in Walker Springs Cave, or building a house with Sewanee Outreach, PRE-Orientation provides memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. Registration will open in mid-April 2020.


Walking in Place

Geology Professor Bran Potter leads a field visit to explore the geology and hydrology of Lost Cove during Sewanee’s Finding Your Place program.

Finding your place (fyp)

Why does place matter? Places speak to us through our senses and their sense of community, through their stories and their history, through the environment and the culture—but the truth is, it takes time and attention to make a place your own. This program is a great way to get started. 

Finding Your Place is a first-year program (conveniently the same acronym) that introduces first-year students to campus, course work, professors, and classmates. Its place-based approach synthesizes knowledge and experiences across many disciplines and prepares students for an engaged life in and beyond Sewanee. Registration will open in mid-April 2020.

Beyond the Gates

Career Prep

Whether your immediate postgraduate goal is graduate school or a career, the Sewanee Career Center is here to give you a hand from the very beginning.

Starting your freshman year, the Career Center staff will encourage you to look into summer internships. Then, they’ll tell you all about the endowed internship funds that provide over $600,000 to Sewanee students pursuing otherwise-unpaid internships and research opportunities each summer.

The Career Center also works with our students after graduation to see how they’re faring in the “real world.” Here’s what they found out about the Class of 2018 seven months after graduation: 

  • 98.3% of graduates were employed, in graduate/professional school, or pursuing internships or fellowships
  • 74% were employed
  • 14% were in graduate or professional school

Our dynamic Outcomes Infographic can show you even more about the fields that Sewanee’s academic programs prepare you for. If you really like a lot of information, check out where graduates have landed since 2010. It's sorted by academic major. 

The Sewanee Pledge

The Sewanee Pledge  

Sewanee has taken a leading role in making a first-rate education more accessible, making scheduling and advising more personal, and making honor central to life on the Domain. Now, we have deepened our commitment by adding new guarantees for new students.

  • We pledge—to help Sewanee graduates secure good jobs and spots at top graduate programs by providing funding for a summer internship or research fellowship.
  • We pledge—to help Sewanee graduates find their place in an increasingly interconnected world by providing you with access to a semester-long study-abroad program at no additional tuition cost.
  • We pledge—that you will graduate in four consecutive years (with one major). If you do not, Sewanee will provide up to one additional year of study tuition-free.

Of course, you will have to do your part, too. But if you meet Sewanee’s academic and social expectations, we pledge—we guarantee—to make these opportunities available to you.

You've got questions? We've got answers.

  • How do I find out what my mailing address in Sewanee will be? The Sewanee Post Office (SPO) is responsible for handling every Sewanee student’s mail and packages.
