Residential Life

Living well with one another.

Our dormitories are places of shelter, safety, rest, study, spontaneous fun, and leisure. They are also places where our students learn to mature intellectually, emotionally, and physically, and live well with others in order to prepare for, most imminently, the greater liberty of college life. Living well with one another in close quarters depends upon respect for our rules, as well as sensitivity, patience, and effective communication.

Together, as a community, we strive to:

  • Instill good habits of self-discipline, self-sufficiency, hard work and time-management.
  • Provide the space, time, quiet and support for students to grow in profound ways, both academically and personally.
  • Hold students accountable, with the courage to accept responsibility for their decisions and actions.
  • Celebrate students in success and support them in disappointment.
  • Create a home where students of all backgrounds, from across the country and around the world, feel connected, respected, and appreciated.
  • Value multi-generational relationships where adults model intellectual curiosity, empathy, balance, and the values of our community.
  • Play together.
