Think Sewanee First


A Think Sewanee First message from Vice-Chancellor John McCardell:

"Every alum's work will not be done until every time they meet an interesting person, or read an interesting book, or come across an interesting idea, the first thing that comes to their mind is - how can this help Sewanee?"
