Special Interest Communities offer a unique residential experience by allowing sophomores, juniors, and seniors to live and explore common interests together. This living arrangement also creates opportunities for students to connect with faculty, administrators, alumni, and community leaders.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs oversees the Intercultural House (ICH), which is a unique residential setting that offers students the opportunity to learn more about diverse cultures in a supportive living environment. Some of the various IRC-sponsored activities include art exhibits, poetry readings, discussion groups, and film screenings. This residence is housed in the Intercultural Resource Center (IRC).
