Residential Learning Communities

The office of Residential Life and the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures 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).
