Student Life

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 like 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.

About Life at Blair

To really experience Blair, you have to visit the campus, but this short film about student life at different times of the year, gives some insight into what it is like to live in the Blair community.

From day one, our community’s warm welcome tells even the youngest students that Blair is not just their new school, but also their new family. This family, the Blair community, challenges and encourages students to maximize their potential and instills in them the tools that they will need to successfully navigate college and life beyond.”
