Our House

Read the history of Ware College House and you'll learn that a primary goal of house leaders is to inspire residents "to well-reasoned ideas and plans [that] are pursued with passion." Read just a little more, though, and you might come away with the impression that many of those "well-reasoned ideas" appear to involve devising new and creative ways to employ the house's name. Leading examples include WARE in the World -- the house's community service and outreach program to improve the community on campus, in Lancaster, and around the world through partnerships with organizations such as Operation Warm that brings coats to those in need during cold weather months. There's also beWARE the Goat, the annual Hartman Green fundraiser for Heifer International, which provides livestock to families in the developing world, and the particularly inventive WAREaoke, the residents' unique take on the traditional karaoke social mixer.
