Residents are expected to attend the following activities throughout the year:
- Retreats (which happen on a weekend at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters)
- House dinners & meetings (activities vary, but they always happen every Sunday from 7-9:30 and Wednesday from 7-8:30)
We realize that there may be days where you are not able to attend, but we have found that those who make a commitment to being fully invested in the house take away the most value from the experience. So although we do not set required time expectations, it is safe to budget for roughly 4-6 hours a week.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that intentional communities are incredible opportunities for both personal and professional development. The time invested into the co.space will serve as more than a line on your resume, but rather as a life-changing experience and community to call home.
Additionally, we encourage all students to be actively engaged in other extracurriculars and academic work. The resources and expertise of the university are designed to complement the real-world network and connections that the co.space will provide for you, so view them as supporting, rather than competing, resources.
