Program House selection has begun, and House Hopping Day is this Sunday from 1:00-4:00. I wanted to share with you Recess House’s expanded mission statement, which hopefully will appeal to First Class students:
Recess House is for student groups who historically have remained on campus during school breaks, including low income, first generation and international students, for reasons of employment or the costs or time related to travel. Residents benefit from not feeling isolated during times when there are few students on campus, having use of the large kitchen and common spaces that are shared with Full House, and being connected to supportive resources on campus.
If there is a critical mass of First Class students in the house next year, it provides a wonderful opportunity for programming that addresses and supports their needs. Please encourage students who might benefit from living in Recess House to apply, and if possible, to stop by the house (202 Washington Street) on Sunday to check it out. The first round of applications are due February 17.
