Theme House Application Guidelines
The theme house program is designed to give students a unique on-campus living environment that focuses on an educational and/or service-oriented program of the residents' choice.
Each house is considered to be a part of Whitworth's housing system and therefore falls under the same community values and behavioral expectations as the residence halls. (See the Student Handbook for detail of policies.) Due to the fact that the residents in these homes are Whitworth ambassadors to the Spokane community, the first violation of any big three policy may result in the cancellation of the house contract.
Theme House Program Goals
To apply, submit a proposal for the theme you wish to facilitate. Your creative proposal should include the following things:
Specific houses may be requested; however, if your theme is chosen you are not guaranteed to receive that house. Placements will depend on other themes chosen, the number of residents in each house, and which house the staff feels will best suit each theme.
If you currently are living in a theme house you will need to re-apply with a creative proposal. Again, there are no guarantees about which house you will receive if you are granted a house.
Proposals are due on April 3 by 4 p.m. to the front desk in student life. Theme houses will be chosen by April 8 on the basis of the proposals' quality and creativity. Applicants will be notified via e-mail. Junior- and senior-class applicants are preferred.
Please contact Nicole Boymook at firstname.lastname@example.org or 509.777.4655.
All houses are furnished with bedroom furniture, a desk and chair for each resident, a sofa, loveseat, coffee and end tables, and a dining room table and chairs. Whitworth will pay for all utilities (not including cable TV).
