Each week during the summer, we host a series of readings and lectures from faculty and guest speakers. These talks are a chance for students to experience first-hand how writers and scholars are pushing the boundaries of their fields, and they allow our students to interact with some of the most innovative voices in contemporary arts and letters.
“There’s this sense that you have left the world behind when you drive up the mountain. Sewanee is legendary for a reason—it’s designed for those moments of inspiration.” - Hannah, L'11
Students at the School of Letters have a wealth of opportunities they can take advantage of during their summers with us. Our extracurricular programming brings the world of writers and thinkers to students in an environment where they can develop personal connections with emerging and established voices. Our visitors don't just speak to our students from behind a podium; they are excited to get to know them and their work. Sewanee also provides opportunities for professional development.
