It's more than just a campus.

We call it the Domain: our Gothic-inspired campus on 13,000 wooded acres, with a 21-mile hiking loop that drops through hollows and runs by waterfalls. As a student you'll be in Sewanee for six weeks—enough time to get to know the place, and enough space to find some clarity. A lot of writers already know our best kept secret. And for you, outside might be where you do your best writing. 

Hiking on the Domain

65 miles of interconnected trails to hike, and one 21-mile loop known as the Perimeter Trail.
