January 17th 2017
Housing application for language and international interest houses in North Village Building C. The wing includes seven five-person apartments, and five of these houses focus on specific academic areas (Chinese, German, French, Spanish, and the Middle East/North Africa [MENA]).
Applicants for this community might include students with an interest in international or foreign language studies, international students, or students who have lived or traveled abroad. Sophomores are encouraged to apply but please note that preference may be given to students with more academic or international study experience. While a previous background in the particular language or academic area may strengthen a student’s application for a specific house, students do NOT have to be majoring in that field to be considered for the house.
Application available online here. Deadline is February 6, 2017
Students will be notified of acceptance by February 10, 2017
Accepted students must commit by February 17, 2017. Once committed, students will not be permitted to participate in Room Selection.
