Staying in Touch

Students have a chance to visit with family on campus or at home once every three weeks. Steward Semester hosts a family weekend each semester, where we look forward to welcoming parents, family and friends to their students’ home in the woods.

Communication and Technology

Students are encouraged to bring their personal laptops and phones to Steward Semester. The dorm and class spaces are all equipped with wireless internet. Technology will be integrated into the curriculum. However, we encourage students to spend time offline as much as possible. Our Outdoor Adventure Expeditions give students the opportunity to unplug from the digital realm and reconnect with the natural and social worlds around them by leaving their personal devices behind. Time is set aside each week for writing emails and letters home.
