Living in The House
Today, this house is managed by a dedicated team of alumnae volunteers on the chapter's Affiliated House Corporation Board (AHC). They oversee maintenance, housekeeping, renovations, utilities, employees and vendors. They hire a food management company that supplies chefs for our resident's meal plan and chapter dinners. There are a limited number of spaces available in the house but all chapter members are welcome (and encouraged) to be at the house at their leisure. Graduating chapter members consistently note that their time in the house helped them form deeper bonds and that they were thankful they took the opportunity to have this unique living experience while it was available to them.
"I love that living in the house allows me to develop closer relationships to my sisters and there is always something fun and exciting going on. I think living in the chapter house has changed my college experience for the better. I wouldn't change a thing."
Living in the house is much like renting an apartment. Our live-in members sign a contract with the Affiliated House Corporation Board (AHC) and pay room & board payments directly to AHC. The chapter itself does not collect room & board from members. The cost of living in the house is determined by the AHC board and put into the contracts each year. The facility has an in-house kitchen and meal plan is available. Sisters who do not live in the house have, on occasion, opted to participate in the chapter meal plan. For some, it is preferable to the University options and prices.
