Students begin to arrive on campus August 10

Following summers working, studying, or interning in locations from Florida to Maine, and from Alaska and California to Washington, D.C.—and on five continents—Sewanee students will arrive back on campus beginning this week. Athletes, proctors and other student leaders, and international students are among the first groups to return, starting August 10.

First-year students will begin arriving for Finding Your Place (August 15), followed by arrivals for PRE (August 22), and Orientation (August 25). All students will be on campus when classes begin in the College on August 29.

Finding Your Place allows new students to discover and become connected to Sewanee and the larger community, and to begin developing strong relationships with classmates, student mentors, and professors. Participants will enjoy plenary sessions, smaller individual sections, and numerous field trips around middle Tennessee. FYP enrollment was limited to 128 students.

PRE-Orientation offers more than 200 incoming students the opportunity to spend three days making friends and familiarizing themselves with Sewanee’s 13,000-acre Domain through activities such as rock climbing, canoeing, or crawling through winding cave passages.

Orientation for all new students in the College runs from August 25-28.
