Rose House Mini-Seminar Series

These are one-off one-hour seminars. Seminars are on anything from the writing of cover letters and resumes, to sustainability and nutrition and other special topics. Seminar topics are gleaned from resident feedback. The seminars are intended to “promote learning for its own sake” (A Vision for Residential Life, 2000: 8). This is also in keeping with the founding West Campus recommendation to “explore ways to encourage formal academic offerings such as house-based classes, seminars, sections, and study groups” (2000: 9). It is meant to compliment what our Rose Scholars program (our version of a House-based class) has already begun to formalize and fulfill, but as a non-credit bearing student-generated offering.
