Stirling's Coffee House

I never saw myself living in a small town, but now I feel this sense of beauty being here in Sewanee—this feeling that everyone is watching out for you. Students have a sense of self-ownership and responsibility in this place. Everyone becomes family, and they get to know diverse groups of people. There are nearly 50 students working here—it’s a student-run coffee shop, and I think that’s amazing.
