Group Life: make our
Life at WCSC is a community-building endeavor. The Nelson Good House was designed to foster group life and is "highly hang-outable," to quote a program alumnus. Students live in this space with up to 14 others. Through sharing meals and household responsibilities as well as exploring the city and engaging in classes together, students come to know one another and themselves in surprising ways. They also learn how to negotiate group conflicts and gain skills in social leadership, equipping them with tools to navigate diverse social settings that go well beyond the program. This often results in friendships that last a lifetime.
