I am a creative person who loves creativity, specifically writing and dance, and likes thinking critically. I love being around artistic people but also need time by myself to think and write. Do you think i would fit into Bennington? Also, I'm a pretty sensitive sleeper so i was wondering what would be the least noisiest house? — Asked by Anonymous



Yes? I don’t see why you wouldn’t. Creativity is our thing, but not just in writing and dance…creative problem solving is a part of all disciplines, not just the arts. There is also a lot of reading, writing and thinking. Traditionally, these activities can be done in solitude or in the company of others.

Franklin is a 24hr quiet house, and a bunch of other houses set quiet hours as a community: on 3rd street, Noyes, Sawtell, Perkins and Merck — PB and Fels don’t (to my knowledge — I might be wrong, but it’s roughly that ratio). So really, you’ll find your place. All are varying degrees of quiet and houses choose their quiet hours as a community. Note that all houses are courtesy houses, meaning if there’s an issue you can knock on your neighbors door and chat about it and they HAVE TO BE NICE (and then solve the issue).

Love my adoring fans. Let’s hang, bring over season 1-4 of 30 Rock and we’ll fire up the cheese stew.

current student here! my high school was 4000 people and the ~650 at bennington is perfect for me! not awkward at all. in fact i actually feel like a person here rather than a number or just another face in the crowd. it's an awesome feeling. — Asked by Anonymous

Not awkward at all. It’s never awkward! No awkwardness here…NOT AWKWARD

My freshman year I was placed with the perfect roommate. We ended up living together for a year before she got a single and I got a different (also great) roommate. Since my first term, I have lived in 4 houses with 2 different roommates and by myself. But living in a single is not for me. I thought that the solitude and quiet would be good for me, inspire me to write more music, think about “stuff”, etc. NO. After one term I was ready to move back in with my first roommate, even though she’s a senior and I’m a junior and we should really both just Grow Up and live in separate rooms. The thing is I need someone in my life who will make me feel embarrassed about my urge to spend hours in bed watching 30 Rock and rearranging the books on my desk. I like coming home late to notes that say, “I went to bed at 8:30. FAIL”. I like comfortably cluttered rooms and shared possessions, someone to comment on the noises I make when I wake up and someone to actively distract me from doing work. It’s just like being married without any of the dysfunction, tax complications or bed-sharing. If only we had a puppy, life would be perfect.
