7 Weird Things You Can Only Get Away With at Sewanee

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Sewanee chapter.

We all know Sewanee is a place unlike any other, but it’s easy to forget how different the rest of the world is from our little slice of paradise. So here are seven things are only acceptable to do at Sewanee. 


1. It’s completely normal to get in a random white van in the middle of the night.

2. Chacos with socks? Wouldn’t have it any other way.

3. Chacos with everything? Heck yeah.

4. Seeing your professor ride their bike home after class

5. Excitedly saying hi to people you don’t know all over campus


6. Leaving your laptop, books and wallet out all day in the library 

7. Getting in a car with someone you don’t know who offers you a ride to Gorgas

Stay weird, Sewanee. YSR.
