Here are some general guidelines for residents of La Casa.
About the environment
La Casa provides a perfect environment for the development of extracurricular activities related to the academic fields of Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian languages and cultures. It also offers a unique opportunity for students to develop their language skills by total immersion in a Spanish-speaking environment and to interact with students with similar interests.
- Students residing at La Casa will be expected to live and work in cooperative spirit, sharing some household maintenance duties and kitchen responsibilities.
- The official languages of La Casa are Spanish and Portuguese. Students residing at La Casa are expected to use only Spanish and/or Portuguese in group situations and are strongly encouraged to speak these languages at all times among themselves, with the Faculty Advisor and with Spanish and Portuguese-speaking guests.
- Unless otherwise specified, the same college rules that apply to other college housing will apply to La Casa. See your Student Handbook and Guide for On-campus Living for complete information on college housing policies and regulations.
