Welcome to the School of Theology! We hope that your transition so far has been smooth, but here are some things to help you once on the Mountain.
The schedule for all orientation activities may be found here.
Orientation includes a special occasion that is open to everyone — the annual pilgrimage to Hayneville, Ala., commemorating Jonathan Daniels. To get a more complete idea of what this powerful event is like, read Alex Andujar's, T'14, article from a previous pilgrimage here. This event is not an orientation requirement for incoming students, but attendance is strongly encouraged.
On Aug. 12, The School of Theology officially welcomed 24 new M.Div. students and seven additional degree and certificate students. One of the M.A. students is the first to enroll in the School’s Theology and Literature concentration, a blended program with the School of Letters and the English department of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Thirty-three percent of this year’s incoming class is 30 years of age or younger. This represents a dramatic and steady change that has occurred over the past nine years. In 2004, only 4% were that age category.
The School will also have visitors from Westcott House for the first two months of the Advent term. Iain and Anna McColl will be in Sewanee from mid-August to mid-October, while Cameron, T’15, and Carly Nations, will be in residence at Westcott, as part of the new student exchange program, now in its second year.
The "current students" page has links to lots of information that will be of assistance to you.
The School of Theology has a Facebook page and a Twitter page. Be sure and like and follow to get real time updates on news and events. Links to these may also be found at the top of all of the School's website pages.
