“Dorm life is incredible.”
When good friends Kwesi Sam and Oliver Vulliez had a chance to be roommates in their junior year, they jumped at the opportunity.
Oliver: “Kwesi is one of the hardest working people I know. He’s up at 6:30 every morning doing schoolwork or playing soccer, or a mixture of both. He’s someone I look up to in that way.”
Kwesi: “Oliver is a very funny guy, but when it comes down to it, he is a really hard worker not only with school but also lacrosse … and I like to surround myself with people who are really hard-working.”
They agree that one of the advantages of life at a boarding school is the great friendships you make and the deep connections that form between students and their teachers and coaches because of all the time you spend together in the classrooms, in the dorms, on the playing fields, in extracurricular activities, and just hanging out.
The faculty and students in Kravis Hall — Kwesi and Oliver’s dormitory — have created a fun, comfortable place to live, a real community. Birthday celebrations with pizza and wings, Ms. Zamah’s cookies, the dorm’s legendary Kravis Basketball Association, and Saturday nights in the common room watching TV are just a few of the great aspects of life in Kravis.
