This question helps ensure you're a human and not a spam-dealing robot trying to sell us Uggs for some reason. (If you are a spam robot, please note that if we needed Uggs to make College House residents smarter, better prepared and more fashionable citizens of the global community, we wouldn't buy knockoffs from some random Ugg merchant on the other side of the world.)

Music and Social Change

The Music and Social Change program explores the many ways in which individuals use music in their everyday lives to develop who they are and, often subconsciously, to advance their own social and economic position. Through an academic course, volunteering in music classrooms in West Philadelphia, and attending concerts together, participants will investigate how music is used to construct larger social and economic networks that we call culture.

Integrated Living Program

The Integrated Living Program (ILP) seeks to explore a broad range of ideas through an interdisciplinary lens in a residential setting. Based on the successful Integrated Studies Program in Riepe College House, ILP brings together students of multiple schools, backgrounds, majors, and interests to promote discussion, community-building, and critical thought. Different aspects of a semester’s theme are explored each month, through films, books, or talks, which culminate in a dinner at which ILPers discuss that month’s events.
