Although members of the Russian/Slavic Culture House do not intend to fight the policy, sophomore and Russian/Slavic Culture House resident Samantha Ferello agreed that only permitting students to live in Special Interest Houses for one year would weaken their sense of community.
The Russian/Slavic Culture House, which can hold up to seven people, is home to four students this semester, she said, adding that many students expect to live in the house for another year after returning from study abroad programs.
“With a new set of students every year, it will be harder to build a community in the house because everyone’s new and they’ve sort of just been thrown together,” Ferello said.
