Sewanee is the home of The University of the South, founded and owned by the southern dioceses of the Episcopal Church, and generally known as "Sewanee." The university hosts the Sewanee Writers' Conference each summer. The Sewanee Summer Music Festival is an annual, month-long music camp for young orchestral musicians under the tutelage of accomplished teachers and conductors. Nearby St. Andrew's-Sewanee School, one of the oldest boarding-day schools in the South, is a private school for grades 6 through 12 with a student population of 100 boarding and 150 day students. The Sewanee Review, a literary magazine, has been published in Sewanee continuously since 1892. The Templeton Library, which is to be the repository of the papers of financier Sir John Templeton, a native of the area, sits prominently on a bluff of the plateau, overlooking the valley below. It is no longer a library, it now houses several private apartments. Sewanee is my alma mater.
