Owned by the Episcopal Church, the 13,000 campus stands on the Cumberland Plateau between Chattanooga and Nashville in Tennessee. Of the many attractive stone buildings on Sewanee's campus, the All Saint's Chapel is the most remarkable. Construction of this European-style cathedral began in 1894, and the last stained-glass window was not put in place until 100 years later.
English study is particularly strong at Sewanee. The university is home of The Sewanee Review, one of the country's top literary magazines, and every summer the school hosts the well-known Sewanee Writers Conference. The university also owns the copyrights to the works of playwright Tennessee Williams.
