WELCOME TO GREGORY

Welcome to Gregory, where residents believe that a college house should be more than just a place to study for your Econ 001 midterm, sleep in a one-bedroom, and grab the occasional free slice of pizza. Although the House does provide all that, it is also a place where you can explore new things and feel a real sense of community.

For a start, Gregory celebrates diversity through its Modern Languages Program and cinema through the Film Culture series. But even if German leaves you tongue-tied and the Oscars give you a headache, you will still be welcomed to Sunday brunches, study breaks, and weekly BYOM hot chocolate nights with open arms. With a supportive network of GAs, RAs and dynamic student staff, there's always something going on and someone to talk to - this is a house that's got your back.

So try a new French phrase in the mosaic-festooned Greenhouse, engage in a Star Wars vs. Star Trek debate in the Film Lounge, or simply laugh until you can't breathe in the piano lounge when you're supposed to be studying - this is a House that will embrace you. Visit for a while, or stay four years. Either way, we hope you'll feel at home here.

Upcoming at Gregory!

Welcome (or welcome back!) to Gregory!  We have much going on in the opening weeks of the semester.... 

Here are some of the highlights:

8/21, starting 4:30 PM: Official House welcome!  For our freshmen, this is a busy night; our assigned dinner time is 4:30 PM at 1920 Commons, followed by our mandatory College House meetings, which begin at 5:30 PM on the Beach (the field between the buildings) and then we break up by hall.

8/21, 7 PM: Meet your housemates at games night on the west wing of Van Pelt!  Gregorians of all years are invited.

8/23, late afternoon: Our annual opening BBQ for Gregorians of all years, followed by karaoke, and even a toga party prep session for the freshmen (or, we guess, any upperclassmen who wants to wear a toga).  

8/26 and 8/27: Introductory meetings for each of the language houses in the Modern Languages Program and the Film Culture Program.  Check the events calendar for details.  All Gregorians are welcome to take part in the programs, whether or not they originally applied for them.  Check out the details and the semester schedules!

8/30: Our annual bus trip to IKEA to buy whatever your new apartment is missing!  Watch for emails with RSVP details.

Coming soon: Gregory doesn't have computer labs, but we will be the first House to offer a laptop loaning program!  Details to come.

See you soon!
