Restoration House Application

Special Interest House applications are due by Monday, March 3, 2014

Any questions about this application should be directed to David Foster

An extra note to prospective Restoration House residents: Living in the Restoration House means living in an intentional community where you spend much of your free time at the house (meals, study time, plain old chillin’).  But there are also more concrete and mandatory commitments such as community dinner every Sunday evening, a one hour weekly meeting, and one large event put on by the house each semester (e.g., Fall: Fall Fest and Spring: Lawn Party).The house is different from other campus communities in its focus on “green living” and caring for the environment.


Before you apply please read more about the house to understand the mission, goals and activities of the house.


Note: We accept applications on an individual basis and cannot guarantee the acceptance of roommates applying together. All applicants must attend at least one community dinner before decision time and introduce themselves so we can put a face to applications.


* denotes a required field.

*Email address?

*1. What appeals to you about the Restoration House?

*2. How would you live out the mission statement of the house (and contribute to it)?

*3. What activities (including campus and community involvement), experiences, or traits do you think best describe you, and how would they benefit the house?

*4. Do you have any final thoughts/things that might hinder you from accepting an invitation to live in the house (ex. I actually hate the Earth, I only want to live in the house one semester, etc. . . )?

Thanks for your submission - Applications are due by Monday, March 3, 2014
