At Pres House Apartments, building a tight-knit, supportive community is one of our top priorities. Throughout the year, we facilitate events and activities that bring residents together and provide opportunities for community building and personal growth.
In addition to the activities and events listed below, past events have included:
- “Welcome Back” Pizza & Ice Cream Social
- Pumpkin Carving / Halloween Party
- Exam Hospitality
In 2020-21, community events will look different as we stay safe during COVID-19, but our commitment to fostering connection and support is as strong as ever. We’ll be getting creative with virtual, socially distanced, and separate-but-together adaptations of our beloved events listed below.
Our weekly emails and bulletin boards are the best ways for current residents to stay up to date on what’s happening. You can also check out the calendar at the bottom of this page. Follow us on Instagram @phapartments (we love getting tagged in photos and stories!) and like us on Facebook @ph.apartments.
“Pres House Apartments is not only a community of people living in the same place, but more importantly, a place where the value of ‘community’ is built.”
We recognize the importance of your apartment being a positive place to sleep, work, and relax. Pres House provides an optional Roommate Agreement document to help you and your roommates discuss and set expectations for your shared living spaces. View, download, and print here: Roommate Agreement 2020.
This year, healthy communication and clear understanding among roommates is even more important as we strive to keep ourselves, and each other, safe during the pandemic. Apartment groups who completed a Roommate Agreement together and provided a copy to Pres House staff by Friday, September 11 have been rewarded with free pizza and ice cream (in lieu of our usual Welcome Back Pizza & Ice Cream Social)! We are proud of our residents: a majority of the building completed this incentive.
COVID-19 Community Health Initiative
To encourage community health, all residents are available to earn a onetime $50 rent credit for completing three steps:
- Attend or view PH Apartments Orientation
- Agree to abide by public health guidelines
- Get tested for COVID-19 at least monthly between August and December
Residents, please refer to weekly email newsletters for the link to the incentive form and further details!
In an ordinary year, drop-in Community Dinners are our most popular building-wide event! Once a month, Pres House Apartments residents are treated to a free informal dinner, typically prepared by our talented chef, Laura Andrews.
In the 2020-21 year, though we can’t gather in Lower Hall as usual, we plan to continue Community Dinners by delivering to apartments that sign up for each meal. Meals may include both ready-to-eat deliveries, and cook-it-yourself meal kits with instructions! We hope to use this opportunity to enjoy a meal separately but “together,” learn about different cuisines, and take time to relax.
Our fall 2020-21 Community Dinner Delivery dates are Wednesdays: September 23, October 14, November 11, and December 2. RSVP for a meal no later than 48 hours before deliveries! Check weekly email newsletter for sign-up links.
Ever miss after-school snacks? We sure do. That’s why we instated Afternoon Tea, a weekly gathering featuring free snacks, beverages, and conversation with your fellow residents and staff. We love getting to know your names and faces, as well as giving you a little extra fuel for studying.
This year, instead of usual Afternoon Tea in the main lounge, we hope to offer grab-and-go snacks and conversation outside the front entrance of the building, once a week on a rotating weather-dependent day. As the weeks get colder, we’ll reevaluate and see about moving inside. Stay tuned to emails and bulletin boards for weekly snack table developments!
Get to Know Pres House Apartments Program Staff
Pres House Apartments is lucky to have two full-time staff whose job it is to support residents and design programming with you in mind. Ginger and Becca are eager to get to know residents, and to provide guidance you may need as you learn to balance various parts of life. Struggling with a roommate or family member? Having difficulty adjusting to life in college? Both Ginger and Becca provide friendly, knowledgeable, and safe environments to talk through these and any issues residents may face. Ginger and Becca also organize the scholarship programs and building-wide activities, and are open to any suggestions and feedback.
We are always happy to meet and connect with residents. While the current pandemic lasts, feel free to knock on our doors with a mask on, or reach out by email to set up a distanced or online time to chat! Ginger’s office is at the west end of the 6th floor, and Becca’s is in the same location on the 2nd floor. You can reach out by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Pres House Church Activities
We should start by answering a frequently asked question:
Do I need to be religious or a member of Pres House Church to live at Pres House Apartments?
The answer is no. Not only do you NOT need to be a member of Pres House Church to live at Pres House Apartments, you do not need to have any religious affiliation. We are open and welcoming to residents of any religious background or none at all. PH Apartments is owned by the non-profit Presbyterian Student Center Foundation (Pres House), which works to support student and resident well-being, but it is important to us to maintain a living community where all residents are free to live out their own diverse beliefs and values.
If you would like to participate in activities at Pres House Church, there are many options available to you: attending Sunday worship, joining one of our small groups, and going on a church retreat are just a few faith activities that might interest you. Visit preshouse.org for more info.
