The years spent in a well-regulated hostel during the formative period of life promote habits of neatness, self-control and courtesy. It is the aim of the staff to provide a home where kindness, courtesy and trust abide. These graces, together with regularity and punctuality in the home duties, are important factors in the student's education. Hostel regulations are published in the Students' Handbook along with the general regulations applying to all students.
Students are required to attend regularly the Friday evening vespers service, the Sabbath School, the Sabbath morning worship service and the Saturday evening Adventist Youth programme. They are expected to conduct themselves in harmony with the sacredness of these services. Also, the students are expected to attend regularly the worship services in their respective hostels, the Seminary chapel exercises and the mid-week prayer meeting. The Sabbath is observed in a quiet manner, befitting the sacredness of the day. Appropriate choice of music, reading matter and conversation is encouraged to help maintain the Sabbath atmosphere. Any student who applies for admission to the Seminary undertakes to respect the Sabbath hours in accordance with the Biblical principles as observed by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Those in charge of hostels are responsible for students in their care. At no time should students leave the campus without permission from their respective deans acting in council with the Dean of Student Affairs. During class time, even though they may have permission from the dean, no student should leave without prior arrangement with the teachers in charge for the classes during time out. Weekend leaves must be arranged with the Dean of Student Affairs and are usually granted twice each nine-week period except in cases of emergency. The Seminary reserves the right to determine what constitutes an emergency. Students desiring to leave the campus to visit relatives and friends other than parents or guardians must have written permission from the parent or guardian. When a leave of absence is granted, a student must return at the appointed time.
