Special-interest houses are student-directed communities based on academic or co-curricular interests. Students learn self-governance, engage in civic responsibility, share knowledge, and sponsor programs focused on a theme they agree upon as a group. These communities are a reflection of the current student body, and students often come together and seek permission to create a special-interest living arrangement.
About 20 students live together, by invitation, in McKelvy House, and about 10 reside in the Reeder Street Fellowship House. Students in these houses share a common desire for active learning outside of the classroom, to live with like-minded peers who thrive on intellectual discourse. Members take turns organizing weekly discussions about timely topics and plan field trips.
Sororities and Fraternities
Six sororities and four fraternities are recognized on campus, each with its own house. All are affiliated with national Greek-letter organizations. Their role is to enhance the social, intellectual, and cultural life of the campus while upholding their founding values of brotherhood/sisterhood, scholarship, leadership, and service.
