What will you do on the weekend at Saint Mary's?
With our exciting downtown location set in the beautiful state of North Carolina, there is no end to the possibilities for weekend activities. Our student life team offers students a wide variety of options to play, create, explore, and relax, on campus and off. And day students are invited to participate alongside their boarding friends.
Much like the school week, the weekends at Saint Mary's have a rhythm all their own. Friday nights feature on-campus fun, as student organizations plan and run activities like the Fourth Friday event that brings a neighborhood block party feel to campus, or the opening weekend Saints Soiree. Saturday mornings are reserved for community service programming. Saturday afternoon offers girls the chance to explore North Carolina with trips to destinations around the city of Raleigh and around the state; while Saturday night is reserved for favorites like Rave and Fall Ball, or off-campus dinners, college sports, and more. Sunday provides girls with time to relax and prepare for the week ahead with a morning church-shuttle service and afternoon trips to grocery stores, international markets, Walmart and other shopping locations.
Of course, students also have "Around Town Permissions" giving them unlimited opportunities to explore all Raleigh has to offer - like world-class restaurants, renown museums, cultural festivals, and more!
