Student Activities

Student life at Exeter extends from the Harkness table to the dining hall and the playing fields. All students – day and residential – take part in the wide range of activities available on and off campus.

Students take part in 90 clubs, 60 interscholastic athletic teams in 20 different sports, and over 15 performance groups. 

The Student Activities Department sets up activities and coordinates with clubs to make sure that all students have access to a rich series of events during the week and on weekends. Events include everything from contra and ceili dances to comedians and ski trips. Students also take weekend trips to Boston and local malls.

The Phelps Academy Center is the hub of student activity. It houses the majority of student-run clubs and organizations. For day students, it’s a home away from home – a place where they can store belongings and just plain relax.
