The University of the South, Sewanee, TN
The massive 13,000-acres campus overlooks the Tennessee Valley and features Collegiate Gothic architecture. You’ll be surrounded by a lush forest, lakefront bluffs, and a garden ravine that follows a stream through the area. During springtime, it blooms with daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips.
One of the most beautiful structures boasted by Sewanee is All Saints’ Chapel, which is thanks to the work of American architect Ralph Adams Cram. The building has a tower, a rose window, and arched ceilings, drawing on designs from iconic places like the University of Oxford’s University Church and the Notre Dame in Paris. The chapel has had a long history with its development. Its construction began in 1905 and ended in 1959, but the school was established in 1857.
