Overview

Prominent in College lore for initiating the popular F&M tradition of weekly bagel breakfasts, when members of each house gather "to talk about whatever" -- recent events or speakers on campus, favorite books, movies, TV shows and, yes, bagels -- Bonchek College House is noted, too, for several traditions that involve the larger community, as well. Among these is the Community Outreach Dinner, for which residents each semester donate their unused meal swipes in order to host a dinner for members of the Lancaster community. Bonchek College House also hosts the F&M Classy Ball, the College's largest house-sponsored dance  each year.
