Class of 1976
What can I say? Sewanee was an incredible experience, and one that allows me to advocate for the liberal arts as valid brain training and personal development- things I am afraid we tend to overlook as important parts of the higher education mission!
Class of 1991
I mostly enjoyed the lasting relationship I made while at Sewanee both with students and faculty. I also did not mind driving fire trucks, wearing a kilt to football games and the occasional foggy morning.
Greatest four years of my life
I adore this school. Anytime I hear about someone going there, I get a little jealous. It's fun for parents too. I miss it but the one great thing about Sewanee is that the school always welcomes you back and encourages you to visit all the time. There is nothing like this place.
