Special Interest Communities

Special Interest Communities provide a learning experience and opportunity to connect in small communities beyond the classroom.  Rising sophomores, rising juniors, and rising seniors may apply to various departments and are selected before the campus wide Room Draw season.  Rosters for the 2021-2022 academic year will be completed and submitted to Residential Life by April 19, 2021.  The room cost for specialty houses and areas is available on the housing and dining agreement. The residence hall dining plan is not required in the Arabic House, Cultural House, Eco House, Interfaith House, Summit House and Veggie Co-op. Students living in the Veggie Co-op contribute money each semester to pay for bulk food purchases for the Co-op.
