Student Life


Sewanee's core liberal arts curriculum means you’ll dig deep to get a fuller understanding of the world and your place in it.

Arts at Sewanee

Art asks us to focus on technical, aesthetic, and critical themes. It invokes response, recalls emotions, draws on memory, and encourages us to act. At Sewanee, you'll have the opportunity to participate in 7 art departments and programs. 

Sewanee Cares

Sewanee Cares is how we promote well-being. It’s a framework for our expectations, policies, and practices in managing mental and physical health and the learning environment.

Living & Dining

Lunch with Chef Rick


Ninety-eight percent of Sewanee students live on campus. Accommodations range from traditional doubles and singles to an assortment of suite options. First-year students live in residence halls while sophomores, juniors, and seniors have additional options like language houses and themed living communities.


Sewanee is on top of a mountain, but that doesn't mean you'll be culinarily isolated. Chef Rick Wright oversees four on-campus dining options that are complemented by several local spots that serve craveable bites, too. After all, we know that you hunger for more than knowledge.
