Community life at Andover Newton is rich and lively. There are a number of student Fellowship groups, ranging from one on Film and Television to those that are denominational. And if you have an interest you can start a new group. There are also numerous opportunities for worship services on campus, both formal and informal. These services provide you with an opportunity to participate in worship experiences that may be quite different from what you've known before.
In addition, each year brings a variety of community activities to the campus, including the regular fall and spring Community Days during which all classes are canceled so that faculty, staff, and students can leave "the hill" and go off into the greater Boston area to serve and learn from others. At least once each year the Rabbinical students and faculty from Hebrew College join us in a Community Day.
Student Life also brings students and their families together for fun and fellowship with a variety of social activities, such as potluck suppers, picnics, exercise and walking groups. See Student Association and Fellowship Groups for more information about opportunities for community life.
One of the gifts of theological study is the opportunity to learn from people outside of your own experiences and faith traditions. While you are here we encourage you to seek out those who are different from you and to learn all you can from them. Students often report that what they learn from each other is one of the most rewarding aspects of their time at Andover Newton.
You may keep informed about all campus activities through our e-mail newsletter, Student E-News. Student E-News is sent to all students' ANTS e-mail accounts and posted on the Web site as a blog. You may also check out the Event Calendar for current events.
