When you choose to live in northern New England, you can either complain about the winter weather, or embrace. At Proctor, we choose to embrace it.

When you love snow, you do just about anything you can to find it.

The relentless pursuit of training opportunities for athletes has yielded remarkable results on the hill each winter, but the on-snow training is just a small piece of the overall experience afforded these students.

USSA/FIS 2020-2021 Season in Review

This notion of “fit” explains how Proctor’s unique combination of on-campus experiential learning opportunities, integrated academic support, authentic relationships among faculty and students, term-long off-campus programs, and high level arts and athletics all work in synergy to provide an unparalleled educational experience. The complexity of Proctor’s USSA/FIS Ski Program serves as a microcosm of how this concept of strategic fit operates within the greater Proctor model.
