The University of the South, also known as Sewanee, is located between Nashville and Chattanooga, atop the picturesque Cumberland Plateau. The small enrollment fosters a strong community resulting in close faculty-student relationships. Physically beautiful Sewanee encompasses 13,000 acres fondly called The Domain.
A Step Up: Presumably financed by Al Capone, High Point is a true steakhouse housed in a beautiful 1920’s mansion. On the Domain, Modern American Ivy Wild's menu is based on using the best seasonal and local ingredients. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food is always reliable at Dave's Modern Tavern.
Local Attractions: Bring your hiking shoes! One student tells us: The best part about our beautiful school is the easily accessible hikes and views. The 22 mile “perimeter trail” goes around the entire exterior of the 13,000 acre campus. If you do not have to time conquer that, you could always do a portion of it or hike down to the majestic Bridal Veil Falls. Stunning views can be seen from Piney Point (about a 1 mile hike), Greensview (no hike required), Morgan’s Steep (amazing at sunset) or the Cross - I’d strongly recommend hiking from Morgan’s Steep to the Cross.
