House Interest Communities
Experience a dynamic, experiential learning opportunity in your residence hall community by participating in one of our West Campus House Interest Communities. These communities are a small group of students (15 - 20) who want to focus on a topic in depth with a faculty instructor to guide the way. Together the students and faculty instructor participate in specialized activities in and out of the classroom, then bring what they have learned and experienced to the other members of their Residential House and the Campus Community.
