Guys & Girls: The people that attend Montreat College are very eclectic in variety. While many students choose Montreat for athletics, many others choose the school for its location and Outdoor Education and Religious majors. As such, the differences can be readily recognized. Student athletes make up about 50% of the school with teams typically sticking together: baseball and softball, soccer teams, basketball teams and some various intermingling between the varied sports. However, the interaction between athletes and non-athletes is slim to none, with the contrasts between them causing an even split discernible even to the college visitor.

Guys & Girls: Most of the people at Montreat are pretty cool. However there are a few weirdos. But that's with any place that you go to.

Montreat is a tiny school with small class sizes and two dining locations, so students are sure to develop at least acquaintanceships with almost everyone on campus just by attending classes and going to meals. Most students hang out in Belk Campus Center, in the grill (located in Belk), in the cafeteria, and in the dorms during visitation hours. Visitation hours used to be voted on by students, but starting in spring 2009, the hours were set 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the rooms during the week, except for Wednesdays, which prohibit visitation. Wednesdays are reserved for dorm events (Bible studies, socials, etc.). Lobby hours are until 12 a.m. most nights and 2 a.m. on the weekends.

Many students visit friends of the opposite gender to hang out but move to Belk after visitation hours because of the short hours, some of which occur during dinner hours at the cafeteria and grill. Although many students are unhappy with the visitation rules, others are content with taking advantage of Belk’s 24-hour open hours, pingpong table, foosball, computers, and large television. Some students do sneak into the opposite gender’s dorms after hours (there is only one locked door for each dorm until you get into the main building), though most obey the rules, the violation of which can mean losing visitation rights altogether. Since there aren’t many places on campus for one-on-one time, many couples go on walks, picnics, and to coffeeshops for dates.

Social Scene
Students are, for the most part, fairly outgoing. Groups tend to form-athletes, environmentalists, geeks, etc.-but most are not cliques, as people within the group are welcoming. Many of the classes at Montreat are open, friendly environments and often include group projects and discussions. Because of this, students get to know their classmates quickly. Since it is a tiny campus, most students tend to hang out in the same places-the dorms, Belk Campus Center, the cafeteria, the campus grill, Denny's, and The Dripolator. Student Activities also regularly hosts events, including games, sheet mazes, coffeehouses, and dances.
Hookups or Relationships?
During the first few weeks of the fall semester, several relationships form during New Student Orientation. Some people are only together a few days, whereas others become engaged in long-term relationships that, in some cases, have resulted in marriage.
Dress Code
Students wear anything from sweatpants to summer dresses around campus, depending on their taste. Meals and most classes are casual. Some students dress up somewhat nicely for convocations and chapel on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and for other special campus events.
