Greek Life

Mission Statement

The Fraternity/Sorority community at Sewanee strives to promote the growth and fulfillment of both Greeks and non-Greeks through emphasis on academic achievement, service and philanthropy, leadership, and social development. The thriving Greek Life community at Sewanee prides itself on the non-exclusive, ‘open’ design of fraternities and sororities on campus. Accordingly, the University of the South aims to set an unprecedented example of the ideal contemporary Greek community, in which profound experiences and lifelong relationships are fostered, along with rewound knowledge, perspectives, and community engagement.

Rush 2018

Rush 2018 will happen shortly after the start of the Easter 2018 semester. The schedule will be posted here as soon as it is available.
