Residential Life:
The dorm becomes literally the students’ “home away from home.” Most students share their living areas with roommates, though a few single rooms are available. The Office of Student Affairs assigns roommates for all new students, while each spring, returning students choose their own roommates for the coming year.

The Housemaster and other dormitory faculty play a unique role in residential life. They help create a community and ensure that students adapt to dorm life and school.

The campus bustles with activity at weekends with dances, casino night, sporting events and student theater productions.
