Everyone’s favorite lottery process, also known as “Housing,” has begun, and the housing office announced two new SICs opening up next year. That’s Special Interest Communities, for you rising sophomores who haven’t looked them up during your desperate search for a single.
On top of the seven others that will roll over from 2008 (there are eight on the webpage, but, fittingly, the economics house is shutting down after this year), 114 Rue de Fleurus, a creative writing house/pretentious name pioneer, and GreenBurough, a house that’s–well–Green, are joining the fray.
Rue de Fleurus will be on the second floor of Wien and plans to host writing workshops and lectures. Residents will also relish the only time in their lives that creative writing will get them a house. GreenBurough will be in a townhouse on 114th next to Potluck house, and coordinator Liz Allocco says the house will require members to do things “like using drying racks instead of dryers and timing our showers.” In other words, whatever your parents made you do for a day after seeing An Inconvienient Truth. G-Burough also plans to try composting their waste in worm bins, which, if the wind is blowing the wrong way, may cause Potluck to lose its appetite.
For the rest of Columbia, the housing hunt will continue…
