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 furthur, 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 which brings coats to those in need during cold weather months, or Heifer International through our "beWARE the Goat" fundraser, which provides livestock to families in the developing world. Ware College House also maintains a vibrant social comunity through its many inventive events including WAREaoke, Fall Festival, Ware Thanksgiving, the Super Bowl Party, and much more.
