Favorite spot at Sewanee: The patch of ferns near bridal veil falls – it’s like you’re in Jurassic Park!!

Where can you be found on a typical Friday night? Dancing to smooth jazz, my favorite restaurant in Chattanooga, or patrolling the halls of McCrady (jk I just kind of walk around)

Favorite memory at Sewanee so far? Most embarrassing? Probably going skinny dipping at Lake Cheston early on in Freshman year or SHAKE DAY!! Most embarrassing… when I was sick because of the flu and totally not related to any illegal reasons whatsoever and then proceeded to throw up straight off of the Lambda balcony down onto the ground below.

Advice to someone coming to Sewanee: Make the most of the beautiful! And don’t feel pressured to go out if you just need to take some time to yourself. But also if you wanna go to that party on a Wednesday night… GO!
