Student Life

The Student Activities Association (SAA), assisted by the director of student activities, plans events on campus and in Boston for all students. Boarding and day students often play at carnivals on the East Campus quad, laugh at comedy improv teams, watch a game at Fenway Park, hike or raft with the Outdoor Program, or volunteer at Boston-area schools and food pantries. The students’ favorite activity is watching classmates perform—in the many plays, concerts (jazz and classical), and dance events. They’re an audience any performer would envy. Between athletic contests on Saturdays and evening activities planned by and for students, the Milton campus is a busy, well-lit center of life all week long.
