The Office of Residential Life hosted a Program Housing Fair Feb. 7 in Beckham Hall. Program Housing is a unique living option offered to upperclassmen at Wesleyan that gives students the opportunity to live collectively in a house or hall, fraternity or society, based on shared hobbies, experiences, cultural interests and identities.
The primary goal of each Program House is to provide unique educational and cultural, campus inclusive programming. Pictured are residents of the Out House. Out House serves as a base for the Wesleyan Outing Club. It brings together people who share a strong interest in the outdoors, and allows them to share that enthusiasm with others.
Film Hall, located on the 1st floor of Nicolson 6, is a creative environment for filmmakers and film lovers to live and work together, and use their shared knowledge and interest to further both their film and academic careers.
Community Service House draws students who are dedicated to community service and social justice activities. Chinese House is dedicated to educating the Wesleyan community about Chinese culture in all of its many forms. Residents provide an environment where students of Chinese language can interact with native speakers and fellow students to improve their conversational skills.
Well-Being House provides a safe, substance-free environment in which residents can explore aspects of holistic well-being, including physical, spiritual and mental health.
Farm House provides students interested in the politics and culture of food production and sustainability a place to cultivate a mutualistic relationship with the earth that provides them with their lunch everyday. The house seeks to bring together people who care about where their food comes from and how it got to their plates, in a space where they can discuss ways to help Wesleyan strive for responsible food attainment and distribution practices.
The Bayit promotes interest in Jewish culture and traditions to both its residents and to the campus as a whole. Bayit residents work closely with the Havurah, Wesleyan’s Jewish student organization. The Bayit encourages both Jewish and Non-Jewish applicants who are interested in sharing their religious and cultural perspectives with each other and the greater Wesleyan community.
