A Day in the Life
If you've never lived away from home, it may be hard to imagine what life is like when you live on campus. Will you be studying all the time? Will you ever leave campus? Just like Saint Andrew's day students, you'll have plenty of opportunities for sports and arts, for time with friends, for hanging out at the mall, or for going to the beach. Here's what a typical school day looks like for a residential student:
Alarm clocks start ringing!
7:00 - 7:50
Head to the dining hall for eggs, pancakes, or your favorite bowl of cereal.
7:50 - 8:40
You'll be in your first period class.
8:45 - 8:55
Meet with your Advisory group and get the morning bulletin.
9:00 - 12:15
You're in class during this time - Spanish, Chemistry, Shakespeare, you name it! In between classes, you can run back to the dorm to get your next set of books and grab a snack from the fridge in your room. You will also attend Chapel on Mondays.
Enjoy lunch with friends in the dining hall - there's a great selection of salads, soup, hot entrees, pizza, and a sandwich bar.
12:45 - 2:40 p.m.
Back to class for the afternoon.
2:50 - 3:30
Attend a required class meeting or meet with a teacher for extra help.
3:30 - 5:45
This is your time. You might be at tennis practice or cheering for your friends at a lacrosse game; you can schedule a session for extra help with a teacher, or go to a film club meeting or play rehearsal. Van shuttles run during this time, too, so that you can run to the office supply store or the Asian market to stock up on snacks.
5:45 - 7:00
Dinner in the dining hall with your roommate, friends, and faculty.
7:00 - 8:00
Open time: Hang out in your room, play Frisbee on the lawn, watch a little TV.
8:00 - 10:00
Required study hall: Work in your room or with a group of friends in the dorm lounge, or head over to the library for help from a teacher.
10:00 - 10:40
Return to your residence hall to play video games, send an email to your parents, and grab a late-night bowl of ice cream.
