The Arcadians are a select group of volunteers who shape Sewanee’s future by building positive relationships with prospective students. Arcadians are involved with incoming freshmen from the moment they arrive on campus as prospectives. They lead tours, host prospective students, conduct interviews, and help them in their travel to and from Sewanee. Through their interactions with visitors, Arcadians play a crucial role in allowing prospective students to have the real Sewanee experience. Read the full position description here.

"It’s a long way away, even from Chattanooga, in the middle of woods, on top of a bastion of mountains crenelated with blue coves. It is so beautiful that people who have once been there always, one way or another, come back. For such as can detect apple green in an evening sky, it is Arcadia—not the one that never used to be, but the one that many people always live in; only this one can be shared."
