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.  Information on campus activities and programs of support are available through the student life web pages.

Student Organizations

All students are invited and encouraged to become involved in one or more of the University’s student organizations. A wide variety of academic, athletic, political, recreation minded, religious, and wellness focused groups are available.

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

Additional Opportunities

In addition to co-curricular programs for students, Sewanee provides unique academic opportunities such as, internships, service-learning and community engagement, and undergraduate research.

Honors and Recognition

Sewanee celebrates successful students in a variety of ways, including through the University’s honor and recognition societies.  The Academic Policies and Procedures page of the catalog offers links to information about the Dean's List and Honor and Recognition Societies and the Student Governance page to learn about the Order of the Gown.
