Summary: At 9:00 p.m., when study hall ends, many students head for their dorm parent's apartment where they might find a variety of their favorite freshly made snacks such as quesadillas, warm cookies, or mexican dip. Students might join in a rousing game of Taboo, watch their favorite TV show, or talk about news at Westover and beyond. Some girls also use this time to make phone calls, IM their friends, shower, and get ready for bed. The time between study hall's end and in-room is a bustling time in the dorm. At "in-room" time, dorm parents and proctors begin making rounds saying "goodnights" to each student. Some nights there are corridor meetings where dorm parents and proctors meet with the girls on their corridor to plan dorm activities, talk about improving living conditions, or celebrating a girl's birthday. Working together to live happily in this community is always a priority.
On Friday nights, girls can watch television with their dorm parent, take a shuttle to a nearby mall, visit with a teacher who lives on campus, or just hang out with friends. Sometimes there are cultural programs on campus such as a musical performer, an artistic presentation, or another form of entertainment.
On Saturday, after art classes and athletic games, students can attend social events held at Westover or other area schools, including boys' schools and co-ed schools. The social events offered include dances, movie nights, and club or class sponsored activities such as the Senior Carnival and Westover's COLORES Festival.
Faculty and students alike all look forward to Sunday brunch; it is truly a spectacular treat. While most students spend Sundays relaxing, studying and preparing for the school week, there are often day trips to amusement parks and shopping plazas offered.
