This morning the 11-person SIC committee announced the names of the student organizations whom they chose to live in two EC townhouses, a spiffy Wallach suite, and the Convent (“Special Interest Community House”).

The committee to determine who gets SIC space on campus — the new “Special Interest Community House” (AKA the Convent), two EC townhouses, and a space in Wallach — had their final meeting today. They will be presenting their suggestions to Dean Martinez, who will make the final decisions next week. Later this month, applications […]
The Convent on 113th and Wallach 2C will be available for Special Interest Communities and “other populations with specific needs” come this fall, so it’s time for applications.
