Two Sewanee students attended a social entrepreneurship retreat earlier this month and returned to the campus with new ideas about using entrepreneurial skills to solve local and global problems.
Sewanee celebrated Founders’ Day Oct. 17 with the traditional Convocation and the induction of new members into the Order of Gownsmen. Terry L. Papillon was installed as Dean of the College during the ceremony, three honorary degrees were awarded, and Sir Fazle Hasan Abed delivered the Founders’ Day Address.
Seven "junior members" of the Class of 2015 were initiated into Phi Beta Kappa on Friday, Oct. 17; initiated this fall, these students were elected on the basis of their standing through their junior year at Sewanee.
The student-run Investment Club’s first-year performance was good enough that Sewanee's Board of Regents has now placed an additional $200,000 under the club’s management. Including the first-year return on the original funding, the club now manages just over $500,000 of the endowment. And as the club takes on the additional responsibility, its members will have a powerful new tool to aid their investment decisions: access to the Bloomberg Professional Service platform that is used by many of the top investment management firms and stock traders.
