Community Life

The small size of Castle Rock groups makes attention to issues of community and group dynamics central to life at the Institute. Students share a great deal of common experience-- eating meals, taking classes, going on outdoor trips, studying and preparing for class, just hanging out. Consequently, it is important that everyone choose to act responsibly, make decisions that benefit the group as a whole, and be honest in their interactions with others.

Building a sense of community, and realizing the kind of positive relationships this entails-- the friendship, support, encouragement and trust --helps improve every other aspect of life at Castle Rock.
