On January 31, 2017, the Sewanee Review—which was established in 1892 and is America’s longest-running literary quarterly—will publish the first issue under new editor Adam Ross on its newly designed website.
On November 1, 2016, Dr. Amy Patterson, Professor of Politics at The University of the South, presented her research at the Royal Society of Medicine in London. The Society, which was established by Royal Charter in 1905, is composed of over a dozen medical specialty colleges. Patterson was invited to speak to the annual conference of the Royal College of Pathologists, during the College’s meeting on the theme “Pathology Is Global.”
The University of the South dedicated its newest residence hall, Patricia and Robert Ayres Hall, on Nov. 4 as part of Homecoming festivities. Alumni, guests, faculty, and staff gathered in the fall sunshine on the front terrace of Ayres Hall and spilled onto the lawn.
