Commencement procession

Anthropology to art history. Psychology to business. Our own undergraduate studies covered a variety of subjects, and our staff members value the role that a liberal arts education has had in each of our lives. We celebrate and respect your role in students' career exploration and decision-making process, and we hope to partner with you on behalf of Sewanee students.

You help students when you:

  • spend time with them as they explore career ideas
  • offer to connect them with your former majors or team members who are working in an area they would like to explore
  • advise them on appropriate graduate programs
  • inform our office of research programs, internship or job listings sent directly to you
  • recommend that they get engaged with our office
  • write strong letters of recommendation for graduate school or jobs

We help students:

  • discover their strengths
  • explore potential majors
  • explore careers and pursue specific internships and jobs
  • learn career and leadership skills through workshops, individual appointments and other opportunities
  • gain real-world job experience through our strong internship program
  • connect with the extensive Sewanee network of alumni and parents
  • discover the tools needed to apply to graduate or professional school
