This morning I received the following email:
I lurk on your site and remember seeing an article with some great photos of young coeds sitting on the grass watching some khaki-clad boys walk by.
I recall how the comments about the young ladies were all filled with longing for the days when females acted like ladies. The girls all looks so fresh-faced and pretty.
I have a couple of teenage girls I would like to influence somehow and this might be it. Can you please remind me what the article name was or shoot the link over to me?
I informed the reader that the post was none other than this one about the University Of The South, otherwise known as Sewanee, located in Tennessee. The post resonated with readers for many reasons: some enjoyed daydreaming about what looked like an ideal college experience, some were alumni honored by the tribute, and others were pleased to learn about it as a place to possibly send their sons and daughters. And when the kids at the school got wind of the post and started sharing it, Ivy Style hit traffic numbers only surpassed by our coverage of the new Brooks oxford back in January.
So here’s another tribute to Sewanee and the admirable sense of community and tradition that shines through in its photos on Instagram and Flickr. Just imagine what it must be like there in real life. — CC
