Blair is passionate about relationships. The size of our campus and student body are perfect for building strong connections with teachers and classmates. Our community is also incredibly diverse, and this combination creates an extremely supportive environment and an interesting experience.

Our vibrant community is warm and welcoming, and students are supported and celebrated for their achievements in the classroom and beyond. Living in a dorm with classmates and faculty members from all over the world teaches students to develop and maintain strong relationships, solve problems and manage their time well. Our dorms become a “home away from home,” and the depth of relationships forged in our residence halls gives students the confidence to try new things and become engaged and service-minded citizens eager to seek out leadership roles.

Outside of classes, the community comes together regularly for family-style meals, School Meetings and Chapels, athletic competitions, Society of Skeptics lectures, concerts, art exhibits, theatrical productions, weekend activities and off-campus excursions. With a wide range of formal clubs and activities from which to choose, students discover new passions and learn to find balance among academics, scholarly public service, athletics, artistic endeavors, extracurriculars and social obligations as they settle into their Blair routines.
