Today's mail brought notes to all five of us in Career & Leadership Development from students who participated in Beyond the Gates. Their words convey far more elegantly than mine the feeling and the emotion of the event.
Here's a paragraph from one that touched me immensely:
"This weekend has led me to a whole new level of appreciation for Sewanee. I felt as if it was my culminating moment here. I have always loved this place, but this weekend has enlightened me on the overall Sewanee experience. I finally understand how Sewanee is and can be anywhere and everywhere, which is such a blessing!" -C'2011
