The University of the South is a small, “very demanding” school “in the middle of rural Tennessee.” Students describe it as “an oasis of perfection” “dripping with both Southern and academic tradition.” “Sewanee embodies what a liberal arts education should,” beams a history major. Classes are “small” and there’s a “well-rounded curriculum.” “The volume of work can make you want to pull your hair out,” warns an economics major. “Sewanee does not inflate grades,” either. “You must work hard to earn an A.” “Occasionally a professor or two takes the absent-minded professor stereotype to a ridiculous level,” but “it is hard to find a truly bad teacher among the whole lot.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
