Success Coaching

Success coaches are here to help you throughout your Sewanee experience, from adjusting to college and meeting your academic goals to connecting to campus resources and creating plans for summers and after graduation. At your first meeting with a coach, you'll discuss your strengths and work together to create a plan for success. You can meet with your coach as you need it, or regularly throughout the semester. 

Academic Support

Every learner finds their own way and might need different types of learning environments or support to manage the rigors and expectations of the classroom. Sewanee offers a range of academic resources that can help you in many ways.

Resources for Equity & Opportunity

We are working hard to ensure that all students have access to resources that can help them to thrive on campus and beyond. Learn about funding, our student supply closet, free academic technology resources, and so much more. 

Brightspace for Student Success

Checkout our Brightspace Course for Student Success where we've compiled resources for the skills and topics we regularly work with students on. You'll find resources for time-management, study and note-taking skills, tips for reaching out to your professors, and videos for staying motivated. Note: this link will only work if you are logged into Brightspace with you Sewanee credentials. 

Integrated Advising

Integrated Advising supports you by offering holistic support and resources to help you make informed decisions as you create academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular, and career plans to achieve your goals.


Part of building your team at Sewanee is cultivating relationships of support. As you build your own team, think about who will be your mentors, whether that's another student, a faculty or staff member, or a Sewanee alum. 


We currently have two mentorship programs, one for Sophomores, and one for First Generation students and we're planning to launch more soon. If you have interest in these programs—either as a student participant or mentor, or as an alumni mentor—please fill out the survey linked below.
