Free Days at the Monastery
Being a professor at the Officer’s Academy is not all about work. Class is out during weekends, giving you time to engage in a number of other activities. Participating in them grants you a variety of benefits in combat while being a nice break from academic life.
Doing certain activities expends your available actions per day, indicated at the top of the screen. You can increase its limit by gaining a higher professor level. This can be done by doing well in tutoring sessions, bonding with students, fulfilling requests, and other activities.
Invite Students or Colleagues to a Meal
Dining together in the cafeteria with students or fellow instructors raises support levels in battle. It can also increase the motivation of students, allowing you to tutor them longer.
You can invite up to two people to dine with you at a time. Be sure to order a dish that your students or colleagues like to gain more support levels and motivation. You can choose from the day’s special dish or order from the full menu.
There will occasionally be special events at the cafeteria. The Faculty & Knight Mixer, for instance, serves meals that increase the support levels gained when dining with a fellow instructor and a knight of Seiros.
You can grow produce and flowers at the garden using any plant species obtained. Produce are used as ingredients for dishes at the cafeteria. Flowers, on the other hand, can be gifted to characters to raise their support levels.
You can select a student to represent your class in house-versus-house competitions. Prizes are awarded based on your chosen student’s place in the tournament. Intermediate seals used to take certification exams can also be obtained as rewards.
Going to the pier lets you catch fish used in dishes at the cafeteria. You will need to tug on your rod at the right time to catch your game. Some rare fish can only be caught on special days, so be sure not to miss them.
Special rewards can be obtained at the Amiibo Gazebo by using a compatible Amiibo figure.
You can invite a character to a tea party and enjoy light conversation with them. Remember to choose a topic that interests your guest as to let get them be active in the conversation. When your guest gets excited, you may start a special conversation with them to significantly raise support levels.
Celebrate Someone’s Birthday
Your calendar will be marked by special events and holidays, including someone’s birthday on a weekend. Buying them gifts to celebrate allows you to boost a student’s support levels.
Seminars are weekend-only activities that increase up to two of a group of students’ skills. You can choose the lecturer based on their expertise or hold the seminar yourself. Each seminar accommodates up to six attendees. Note that Byleth will automatically be required to attend if they are not the lecturer.
Unlike tutoring sessions, seminars increase the motivation of participants. You cannot, however, choose the attendees of a seminar.
You can fulfill quests posted on the bulletin board to receive a variety of items as rewards. These range from weapons, armor, and items. Doing quests also nets you renown points to obtain increased level gain during instructing sessions and even additional uses for divine pulse.

These battles deal with a specific character’s story and the struggles they face. Completing them also raises support levels along with other special rewards.

Freely Explore the Monastery
Interacting with people at the monastery is a good way to pass the time. You may occasionally find lost items dropped by their owners. It is also possible to give characters gifts even when it is not their birthday. Both of these actions increase support levels.
