It’s not about checking-in and checking-out for a Steamboat Mountain School day student. These students sign on for more than just school and that’s what they get. Day students, those who live in Steamboat Springs and commute to campus each morning, frequently spend weekends with boarding students, on campus, participating in backcountry skis on Hahns peak, or around town skiing at Mt. Werner/ Howelsen Hill and studying at the renowned Bud Werner Library.
Day students have cubbies for storing their books, bags, and other belongings in the Charlie Williams Lodge. “The Lodge” also has chairs, couches, and designated areas for studying and socializing for day and boarding students. Day students often visit friends in the dorms, workout in the gym, play ping pong in the student lounge, snack in the dining hall, and meet in faculty homes for game nights, shared meals, and crafts. Day and boarding students alike are encouraged to engage in campus life and take advantage of all the activities the Rocky Mountains have to offer.
Everyone knows everyone else: the community is close knit and involved, and there’s no shortage of things to be involved in. More than anything
else, it feels comfortable. Whether you’re a day student or a boarder, this becomes your home away from home.
