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 guest meals, allowing up to 200 people from local shelters to come to campus and enjoy a catered, sit-down meal twice a year. Bonchek College House also hosts the You Stay Classy F&M Ball, the College's largest house-sponsored dance attracting more than 400 people to Hartman Green each year.
