Reasonable quiet is required in and near the residence buildings, especially in the evening and at any time when others are studying or resting. Members of the community are to be especially conscious of restricting loud talking in the corridors and of the volume at which sound is played in their rooms. Consideration for others, especially for those who require greater silence when reading or studying, ought to be of primary concern. For the sake of prayer and spiritual reading, silence is to be observed from 5:00 P.M., until after Evening Prayer on those days when community exercises are not taking place at that hour.
Seminarians are not to possess or use intoxicating beverages in the Seminary except as provided by the Alcohol and Drug Policy found in Appendix A or as specially authorized by the Seminary Rector.
LEAVING THE GROUNDS
Except for free weekends and during vacation periods, when leaving the campus, even for a short time, seminarians are expected to place a note on their doors to inform the community that they are off campus and of their expected time of return (e.g. “Off campus until 4:00 P.M.”) This is the normal procedure even when leaving campus for field education or other obligations.
Except for field education or with explicit permission from the Director of Students, seminarians are not to be off campus during scheduled community exercises and activities. Aside from free weekends and vacation periods, seminarians are not permitted to remain off campus overnight without the permission of the Director of Students.
If any group is going to be absent from any meal because of business or recreation, the refectorian is to be informed beforehand so that the kitchen staff can make its arrangements accordingly.
