Our History


Our Founders

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."
