While academic preparation is central to the Blair experience, we believe firmly in our student life curriculum and emphasize leadership, service, and the ability to live in a residential community as essential elements of a student’s preparation for college and life.
Our students find their days filled with academic, social, athletic, and community activities and an integral part of the Blair experience is learning how to enjoy the many opportunities on campus, while also managing one’s time in healthy and productive ways.
Shortly after arriving on campus, Blair students will quickly learn the routine—meals are served in The Romano Dining Hall, School Meeting takes place on Mondays and Fridays in DuBois Theatre, and afternoons are reserved for athletic competitions and extracurricular activities. During the week, classes are supplemented by programs such as the weekly Society of Skeptics lecture, at which an engaging speaker visits campus to share his or her insight into world affairs, science, technology, media or journalism.
Throughout the year, students also enjoy a wide range of concerts, art openings and receptions, poetry readings, theatre productions and off-campus excursions to nearby New York City. On the weekends, the Blair community comes together in a more relaxed setting for barbeques, dances, intramural sporting competitions and music festivals.
