Centennial House Named for Class of 1968
The Class of 1968 has led fundraising for the renovation of an historic home adjacent to the football field. The renovated "Centennial House" will provide options for Sewanee to extend hospitality to students and their families, alumni, and other friends.
The Good and Difficult Life
Mary Charles Stowe, C’18, served a discernment internship in 2016, with a stipend paid by gifts to Sewanee. In this moving essay, Mary Charles describes finding her place in service to others and seeking balance in her life. In the Stronger Truer Sewanee campaign, we have set a goal to raise $4 million to support internship funding, and we have raised $3.5 million to date. The entire budget for this invaluable program comes from gifts, and we are grateful to many who have established new endowments or contributed annually through such programs as the Cornerstone and ACE internships. An internship is a critically important feature of a Sewanee education for students who take advantage of the opportunity.
LaRussa and Elledge Support Pre-Health Internships
Two Birmingham doctors are helping Sewanee students by providing internships—both for current students and recent graduates. Those internships are invaluable to students preparing for careers in the health professions.
Woodlief Seeks to Accelerate Business Success
Phillip Woodlief has a plan for Sewanee students: consider Owen School of Business as a natural destination. Vanderbilt's school of business has small classes, and it is nestled in one of the hottest business climates in the country. Woodlief and Vanderbilt have partnered to introduce Sewanee students to the benefits of Owen with a scholarship to the Schools Accelerator Program.
