Boarding Students

Making the transition from a family setting to a dormitory setting requires sincere commitment and effort. Dormitory living is the area where individual desires can most easily conflict with the larger responsibilities of community life. If dorm life is to succeed, students must respect one another’s rights. Specifically, this means observing certain periods of quiet so that everyone can study without disruption, maintaining an acceptable degree of neatness and cleanliness, sensible use of showers and telephones, and respect for privacy.

The following guidelines have been devised to help students live well and productively with one another in the dorms. To assist students, each dormitory has a dorm parent[s] who live in the dorm and dorm associates who monitor study hall. Additionally, each dorm has at least one student proctor who helps the dorm parents manage study hall, lead group activities, and provide peer mentoring.
