Students, help make a difference!
The new school year is already underway with orientation events quickly approaching. The freshmen are already on campus, moving into their dorms, and learning the layout of Sewanee. Tonight, the freshmen will be introduced to the various Environmental clubs in which Sewanee students can get involved in. Nine clubs will be represented, but there is huge potential for students to form their own clubs and organizations without an already existing framework. The organizations represented tonight range from a residential themed house to an organization focused on environmental and spiritual exploration.
We’re always looking for ways to get the student body more involved in The Office of Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability. Not only does this involvement help Sewanee as an institution, but also helps further students’ experience, knowledge, and own individual success. As part of the Strategic Plan, we are pleased to announce that a new fellowship program will be implemented this academic year for juniors and seniors as part of increasing domain education.
