Following a tradition which began in the 1970’s, houses will again be made available to groups of students who share a common interest. Programs must include a service aspect, such as volunteering for a local agency (Every Woman’s House, The Village Network, etc.) or may be designed to offer programs that will educate the community about a specific topic or issue (health related, environmental efforts, etc.).
Occupancy in houses ranges from 4 to 16 students. In order to accommodate the maximum number of programs and to utilize space, some larger houses may have two programs assigned to them. Program Houses includes the Charter Programs, the Wooster Volunteer Network (WVN) houses, our local fraternities and sororities, and other College approved program houses.
Charter houses are historic programs with strong ties to minority constituencies on campus and in the community. WVN houses work with the Wooster Volunteer Network to provide service to an outside agency in the greater Wooster Community. Each student is required to provide eight hours of service per month to that agency. College approved programs provide specific services to the College of Wooster community only.
