Student Life

Day Student Experience

Holderness has an inclusive culture that encourages all students to invest in the community and participate in a wide range of activities. Day students are no exception; they often stay on campus long after their academic and sports commitments are complete and join the numerous clubs and activities that are available to them. In fact, most of our day students will tell you that they go home only to sleep.

The day students’ official on-campus base is in Lower Weld, where there are lockers and cubbies for storing their belongings, as well as chairs, desks, and couches for studying and socializing. Unofficially though, you’ll find day students all over campus—visiting their friends in the residential hall lounges, meeting with faculty in their homes, and studying with their classmates in the dining hall—engaging with the community and participating in all the school has to offer.



“One of the best things about being a day student, and one of the things that is unique about the day student experience at Holderness, is how close you become with the other day students. While boarding students end up living with a different group every year, the day students are with the same group for all their time at Holderness. You form bonds in the day rooms that last throughout your entire time at school.” –Liesl Magnus ’17
