At Sewanee, we're dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. We believe in close community and the freedom to ask questions. We welcome people from all backgrounds with open arms and promise to help you search for truth, seek justice, and serve one another.

Faith Communities

From gospel choirs and small-town churches to the School of Theology and the stunning All Saints' Chapel on central campus, there is no shortage of ways to grow your faith here. Though we are an Episcopal university, we also encourage you to explore other faith communities. In addition to Episcopal services, we also have a Roman Catholic community, a Muslim Student Association, and a Presbyterian campus ministry.

All Saints' Chapel

All Saints' Chapel, located at the center of the campus, offers students a variety of programs for exploring religious faith and serving others. The Chapel also serves as our formal gathering space for Convocations, Commencement and other celebrations. Being centrally located is not coincidental, but an expression of Sewanee's identity as an Episcopal university.

University Choir

At the laying of the University cornerstone in 1860, a choir is said to have sung Psalm 100. Since that time, the University Choir has continued to play an important role in the musical life of Sewanee. The University Choir is made up of around 50 dedicated undergraduates who sing at weekly services in All Saints' Chapel and a variety of recitals throughout the program year. Choir membership is open to everyone, regardless of previous experience.
