Campus Life

Weekends at The Hill

There is always something fun happening on the weekends at The Hill! Students attend classes Monday through Friday afternoons. When the weekend comes, students look forward to having fun with friends, pursuing their artistic and athletic interests, or heading off campus to see a movie.

The Community Life Office plans and supervises weekend activities both on and off campus, offering a wide spectrum of opportunities and experiences including shopping, dances, films, coffee houses, athletics competitions, special meals, and community events. Activities are designed to enhance our sense of community on campus while providing enrichment and entertainment for students.

Students and and faculty are encouraged to submit activity ideas and proposals to the Director of Student Activities and to the Student Life Association (SLA) throughout the year – new ideas are always welcome! Weekend activities are open to boarding and day students.

Weekend Activities:

  • On-campus events such as coffee house concerts, dances, food festivals, celebrations of special holidays, dorm competitions, and annual events like Mini-THON and Skate Against Cancer. 
  • Off-campus trips to local movie theatres, shopping centers, and restaurants; seasonal activities such as apple picking and skiing/tubing; trips to amusement parks, trampoline parks, bowling alleys; and more.
  • Day trips to nearby cities - Philadelphia; New York City; and Washington, D.C. - for cultural events, Broadway shows, sporting events, and shopping
