Life at Bennington

Life at Bennington is an all-in, everywhere at once, 24-hour continuum that extends well beyond the edges of a classroom.

Here you are not only shaping your education but the community at large. From the beginning, a Bennington education has been founded on these principles and in frames that make life outside of the classroom as intentional as inside the classroom. Student life informs who you are and become, how you engage in the larger collaborative spaces, and what you can and will bring to the broader campus culture. This happens in dining halls, houses, in clubs and organizations, in libraries and workshops, at events and beyond.
