Student Engagement - Programs and Opportunities

Sewanee’s culture of excellence leads students to discover their potential, in and out of the classroom. During their four years here, Sewanee students explore multiple directions, wear a variety of hats, and cross disciplinary boundaries to shape identities for themselves; they are vibrant members of our shared community.

The Office of Student Life provides numerous opportunities for students to live out this potential and also provides support to help students as they navigate campus and college life.  Opportunities for involvement as well as programs of support can be found here.

Student Organizations

All students are invited and encouraged to become involved in one or more of the University’s student organizations. With around 80 from which to choose, there are a wide variety of types of groups, including academic clubs, social groups, religious organizations, sports and recreation clubs, political interest groups, and more. 

All of Sewanee’s student organizations can be found on the University’s student engagement portal.  Here students can find events, programs, and volunteer opportunities. They can search for student organization information, including a calendar of events, and can also fill out event requests, publicity forms, and more. Currently enrolled students use their Banner credentials to access the portal.  More information about the portal can be found here.

Additional Opportunities

In addition to co-curricular programs for students, Sewanee provides unique academic opportunities for students.  Students can take advantage of service-learning, undergraduate research, and internship opportunities, to name a few.  Visit Special Academic Opportunities to learn more.

Honors and Recognition
