Many departments, including classical languages, chemistry, economics, French, German, mathematics and computer science, philosophy, physics, and Spanish, have regular peer tutoring programs. Sewanee students often help one another gain a better understanding of a particular topic, and in fact many classes encourage group work. Occasionally a student in difficulty will pay another student for systematic tutoring over a longer period of time. In all cases students are expected to follow the Sewanee Honor Code. When in doubt, consult your faculty to make sure the help offered is appropriate.
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 in many ways.
Just as the University is committed to challenging you in the classroom, so too is the University committed to providing a structure of support to assist you in your academic efforts. Whether you are a first-year student navigating orientation and registration, or a transfer student learning about academic programs, or a sophomore wanting to get more involved, or a junior or senior planning for your years after Sewanee, we have resources that can help.
If you need help, talk to your faculty members, seek out your advisor, and check the links associated with this page. You will find information on all sorts of programs and links to offices across campus that can help you.
