What is the Sewanee Sesquicentennial?
For 10 months, friends of the University of the South will celebrate the 150 years of distinguished history enjoyed by a great institution of higher learning. Celebratory events are planned throughout the year, beginning on July 4, to commemorate a meeting of southern bishops on Lookout Mountain that formally set the organization of the university in motion.
We are throwing open the doors, pushing back the furniture, and having a celebration!
Keep up with what is happening through the listing of events linked on this page. As events are completed, we will update the page to include photographs and stories about what happened. Click on the July 4 celebration page in the listing of events to see news about the opening activities.
