Community Life

The small size of each Castle Rock group makes attention to issues of group dynamics central to its international program. Students do almost everything together-- eating meals, taking classes, going on outdoor trips, studying and preparing for class, traveling, 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 this Castle Rock program.
