131 Franklin St.
131 Franklin Street is currently the Hebrew academic interest house, where three Hebrew students can live to improve their language skills. Living at the house entails signing a language pledge similar to that of Middlebury's summer school. This pledge obliges the student to speak only Hebrew while in the house. The house acts as a learning center not only for the residents, but also for the rest of the Hebrew students who drop in on occasion to practice their language skills and get help with homework. There is also Hebrew music and games in Hebrew at the house. The house also features a kitchen and a common room.
Usually there is a “Hebrew Coffee Hour” once a week and other Hebrew related events during the academic year.
Application for Residency
If you are interested in applying to live in the Hebrew House you may submit an application by visiting the College’s housing webpage (go/housing) and navigating to the “Interest Houses” link on the left side bar. An all-student email will be sent in advance of the spring term application process for residency for the following year. Be sure to carefully consider your application; should an offer be extended and you accept, your commitment is final. Be sure to only commit to one housing program, i.e. Residential Life, Social or Interest House, SuperBlock, etc., for any one term - Fall, Winter, or Spring.
