Weekend Fun

Besides participating in team sports and field trips, there are plenty of opportunities to get off "the hill" and have some fun:

• Check out this area travel guide created by students during Project Week
• There's a recreational alpine skiing and snowboarding activity that goes to nearby Mount Snow on Wednesday afternoons and all day Sunday in the winter.
• Shuttles to the village of Putney run on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons, plus additional weekend shuttles to the booming metropolis (well, for those of us living on a farm) of Brattleboro

We're on a six-day academic schedule that ends at noon on Wednesdays and Saturdays. From Saturday afternoon til study hours on Sunday, your time is your own. Here's what can happen:

• Dances—large and small, dressed up or spur-of-the-moment • Concerts from outside dance, music, and other groups
• Fun trips—from custom motorcycle shows to ballet, contra dancing, gallery openings, and more
• Outdoor trips, both day and overnight, including hiking, mountain biking, ice climbing, rock climbing, kayaking and more
• Movie nights, including "drive in" nights in good weather
Coffee house—a great place to polish your Hamlet soliloquy or rock out with your own band
• Cooking, baking, and creating special meals—a great way to learn about the cultures of international students attending Putney
• And much, much more, unless you just want to hang out. We do that, too.
