MPrep Weekend Activities

Boarder or day student, upperclassman or new student: there is a lot to do at Marianapolis. Every weekend includes trips to area attractions: professional sporting events, museums, malls, theaters, and more. There is plenty to do right on campus, too. One dorm might be baking while another is hosting a House Party; inevitably, a pickup game is starting up on Field 1. Faculty supervise activities, but our students propose them. USA soccer game? Let’s go. Movie night? Absolutely. Paintball? You’re on! Students host memorable events, like the Knight of Jazz and the Trash Fashion Show. Some unforgettable Marianapolis traditions (like Rake Day or Halloween) are built right into the daily schedule! Others integrate the community’s commitment to service - like streaking your hair pink to raise awareness and support for cancer research.
