Residential Learning Communities

The office of Residential Life and the Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures are collaborating on a new Residential Learning Community called “La Casa!” We would love your help in promoting this new community with your students by sharing the information below:

Introducing a new Residential Learning Community: La Casa!

La Casa, featuring Vecinos and Amici, is a language learning community for students who want to practice and expand their knowledge of Spanish & Italian languages and culture. Both heritage and non-native speakers are encouraged to participate in this community. Any student who enjoys experiencing and learning more about Spanish and Italian customs and cultures will find La Casa a great opportunity! Special features of this community include: Language Immersion Hours, Karaoke, Trips to Museums/Shows, Dance Nights, Cultural Dinners, Language Dinners, Game Nights, Films, and opportunities to interact with language faculty.

La Casa is located on the first floor of Terrace 5 and is open to all upper-year students (Sophomores – Seniors). For more information, please visit: http://www.ithaca.edu/reslife/guide/specialty/  We would love your support as we create this awesome living and learning community – please spread the word to friends and classmates who may have an interest!

To apply, please complete the La Casa application on Homerconnect by March 7th (https://ahomerwa2.ithaca.edu:4530/pls/sisprod/twbkwbis.P_ValLogin). Residential Life will approve applications on March 9th and by March 10th at 7am, students approved to live in a Residential Learning Community (RLC) will be able to select their housing for 2016-2017. For sophomore applicants, this means selecting housing before the typical summer sophomore selection process.
