Favorite Abbey moment? My favorite “moment” at the Abbey is preseason sailing. Each year the Varsity Sailing Team travels to Florida for a week of training and sailing. There is a lot of team bonding and it’s something I look forward to each year!
Favorite Abbey tradition? My favorite Abbey tradition is the first dance. It is such a fun time because everyone is so excited to be back on campus with all their friends!
Favorite class/teacher? And why? My favorite class was Biology with Mr. Green. Though it was definetly one of the most challenging classes that I have taken at the Abbey it also turned out to be the class that I most looked forward to. Mr. Green made sure to put an interesting and fun twist on everything from the electron transport chain to salt marshes!
Favorite meal in the dining hall? Definitely the perogies!
Favorite Abbey tradition? My favorite Abbey tradition is gathering in St. Benet’s common room before the winter semiformal dance. All the girls in the dorm get ready together and then we invite everyone from other dorms to the common room for sparkling cider and pictures. It’s always a lot of fun!
How has the Abbey changed you? The Abbey has changed me in numerous ways. I think after coming to the Abbey I definitely have become more independent. The environment here really allows you to be able to become your own person and pursue your own passions. I have been able to participate in clubs that truly stimulate me and try new sports that I actually really enjoy, like field hockey.
Favorite Abbey moment? During Spring Term in my Form V year I broke my foot and had to be on crutches for two months. Every morning several of my friends would show up outside my dorm and take me to classes in a wheelchair. I will never forget those days.
Favorite Abbey tradition? The International Student Dinner. International students invite another student to a special dinner. The students prepare a dish from their native country and share stories about their home. It is a fun night to share and learn about other cultures. We are lucky to go to school with people from all over the world!
Being a part of a team gives you the chance to build friendships, hone skills, and earn leadership positions on campus. Take your skills to the next level or learn something new; athletics at the Abbey gives everyone a chance to win.
