“Off the Beaten Path”

University of the South
Ranked #1 of 4 things to do in Sewanee
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The campus is unlike any other I've seen. The buildings are all stunning and the grounds are beautiful. This is the only school I've visited where the "60's concrete style eye sores" didn't get built. It oozes charm...

Loved the o.d stonework on the buildings! Beautiful campus! Shopped in the supply store and got gifts for grandchild and T-shirt for hubby.

This campus was lovely. Manicured lawns and lovely buildings and "cared-for" campus. I know campuses that look pretty awful and that reflects on the university but this one was beautiful. A quiet life for real academic study and enrichment. There are no urban distractions so your student can really get to the books and learn.

I've been visiting Monteagle Mountain since a baby and have always loved going to Sewannee to see what is going on with the University. It's very welcoming and beautiful to see. A must see is the Cathedral. It's beautiful. Also make sure to go to the Cross. It's inspiring.
