The Veggie Co-op is a special interest option of 20 students who choose to live together in the manner of a cooperative. They share meals and each participate equally in the work required to maintain an active and healthy community experience. This has traditionally been a very close-knit group who take seriously their responsibilities toward the creation of a family atmosphere where each member has an equal and important role in the growth of the community. Common meals and weekly meetings are a mandatory part of the experience, and each student is required to contribute $500 per semester to the general pool for buying food and other provisions for the Co-op. As implied in the name, the Veggie Co-op is a vegetarian community so no meat is allowed in the living space. A very specific application process is conducted each semester to fill empty spaces. The Co-op has been a popular housing option, so if you are interested in applying for this space it is best to contact a current Co-op member early to begin the process. This living option is available for sophomores, juniors, and seniors only.
