What will our students do on the weekend?
Maybe attend a mixer at another boarding school, make s'mores on the Smedes patio, shop at Cameron Village or hike at Umstead State Park. From movies to '80s-themed dances, from spa nights to tacos at the Armadillo Grill, Raleigh offers students myriad things to do.
Each Wednesday a list of weekend activities are posted and students are invited to sign up for any activities in which they are interested. Faculty and staff are assigned weekend duties and accompany students on excursions around the Raleigh area as well as offer fun activities on campus, like baking cookies, making dumplings or enjoying an in-dorm movie night.
Day students are invited and often participate in these school-sponsored weekend activities with their Saint Mary's boarding friends.
