Social life at Bennington:
Dance Party / House Bonding!
“Studying” on the Lawn!
There are numerous events happening everyday at Bennington. Here’s a sample of this weekend’s lineup:
Friday: Soccer practice, volleyball, Movement Collective Movie Night, Broadway @ Bennington meetup, Interfaith meeting, and a couple house parties
Saturday: Horseback Riding, Chess club, Swing Club, a student directed production of “Dead Man’s Cell Phone”, The Amazing Robert Channing, and an art exhibition in Usdan Gallery
Sunday: Ultimate Frisbee, farm work party, archery, Bennington chapter of DREAM meeting, and coffee hour in the houses.
For Alana and Selina, our weekends dabble in these events, but they are also filled with dance rehearsals and finalizing midterm projects that we are knees deep in.
Because most events are student led/organized, if there is something you want to lead or do there are many resources to help facilitate that (like a generous budget for activity/club proposals). Bennington also hosts events such as concerts that bring in outside artists! I usually have to cross things off my to-do lists because there are so many thing I can fill my free time with.
