Greek Life: Greek life contributes to the drinking culture here. While certainly many Greek members are open, interesting people, Greek life dominates the social scene. Many people that might not join a Greek organization at another school feel pressured to do so here simply to have a social life. I don't think this is a good mindset or an accurate one, but it is easy to feel this way here.

Athletics: Sports are not a priority here. We are a division 3 school.

Overall Experience: I think you get what you put into your college experience. If you work hard and show your professors that you are dedicated, they will help you find great career opportunities. I'm currently doing research with a professor in religion in literature. If Sewanee wasn't such a small school, with such involved professors, I might never have been approached about this opportunity so suited to my interests.

Overall Experience: It is beautiful, the classes are engaging and very hard, the only reason that I don't give full stars is that there is a lot of partying.

Overall Experience: The classes at Sewanee are excellent. Very challenging which leads to the information actually getting absorbed. I believe the Sewanee professors take "disfluency" quite seriously. The professors are passionate, brilliant and always available to help their students. Classes really relate to one another across the board. Class size is small; most of my classes have had 15-20 students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A Sewanee degree is highly valued to those who know of Sewanee. That is why it is ideal to get an internship or job through a connection with a Sewanee alum.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: College campuses everywhere need to actively work to prevent and convict for sexual assault. It is a crime not to be taken lightly. I have seen Sewanee in the past 6 months take steps to solve this issue but we need to continue with force and consistency.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms at Sewanee are excellent though there are a few that need serious make overs. Theme housing on campus is very popular as well.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life for the men is typical as it would be at other schools, minus the fact that most other schools charge for entrance to parties (the men at Sewanee do not do that). Greek life for women is entirely different than at other schools. All of the sororities are local, save one. And the local atmosphere creates a much more laid back and fun Greek life experience. The sororities cast a wide net and most women in them probably never would have considered Greek life were it a national system.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The golf course is excellent. The athletic fields are excellent. The workout area could use a re-do and lots a new equipment.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Sewanee is truly the best decision I've made in my life. I've learned more here in one year than I did all my years of high school combined. What makes it special is the place itself, commonly called "the domain." Something strikes you when you drive through those gates; you've arrived somewhere unlike the rest of the world. The friends I have made at Sewanee are relentlessly selfless and genuinely caring. I know that they are friends for life.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Because the party scene is so large here, there is a definite problem with sexual assault. There are various student organizations that are making a large effort in decreasing that problem such as the women's center. There is counseling available for victims as well as anyone who needs it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are small and professors generally make a real effort to get to know students. Don't expect to get good grades without working hard. You want to attend class because your classes are small.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Sewanee network is pretty great. There are lots of alums who are ready to help you get an internship or a job.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are some really nice dorms, but also some really gross, old dorms. It just depends on your luck. Lots of people apply to live in theme houses or sorority/fraternity houses as well. Those are better options.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are definitely some snobby sororities just like at any other school, but all in all the Sewanee Greek life scene is good. All of the sororities are local with the exception of one, and most women choose to participate. There are about 5 big sororities on campus, and honestly you pick one based on your personality. I have met some of my closest friends through my sorority, but I also have many friends who chose not to rush. Parties are open to everyone, so it really doesn't make a difference if you rush, but it definitely can be a good thing.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports aren't really a big deal here, though there is a sense of community that can be found if you are an athlete. Our sports programs are no worse or no better than any other division 3 school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really love Sewanee all in all. After having found my "niche," my experience has been so much better. It is very preppy, and I am not, so that was a struggle at first. This semester, though, I have been much happier because I found people who I can relate to.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Sewanee is slowly becoming a more diverse school.
