The University of the South is familiarly known as Sewanee, after the town in Tennessee where the university was founded in 1857. Located on a 13,000-acre mountaintop campus, Sewanee offers a challenging liberal arts curriculum amid architecture recalling Oxford and Cambridge. Sewanee is known for close faculty-student interaction, collaborative learning, and its traditions of honor, community, and respect. Here you will find a strong spirit of community, and an unparalleled intellectual adventure.
