About Our House

We are an active House with rich traditions of strong student leadership, dedication to community service and outreach, and sponsorship of social events that rock!

Founded in 2005 as “South Benjamin Franklin House,” our House changed names in 2007 when a generous gift from Drs. Larry and Rita Bonchek allowed us to build our beautiful Commons with its many programming spaces, turning our bare-bones residence hall into a true "House."

  • Richard Camuccio '16 elected as Bonchek House Chancellor
  • Hello everyone! It is an honor to be serving Bonchek as the new chancellor. I am a sophomore majoring in astrophysics. Activities I am involved in include doing research in the Physics & Astronomy Department, serving as president of the Physics & Astronomy Club, operating the telescopes at the Grundy Observatory, and participating in the the Fitness & Martial Arts Club. I look forward to working closely with many of you over the next year to make Bonchek a better place. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns. I am always ready to serve the best house on campus. Go Bonchek!
