La Casa Hispánica/Hispanic House will be located in Hardy Hall starting with Fall 2020. It offers anyone interested in Hispanic culture the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Latin American and Spanish Cultures. This special interest housing is for as many as twenty-three students who wish to improve or maintain their Spanish language skills and gain insights into Hispanic culture. Residents are encouraged to speak Spanish with their housemates whenever they are in the dorm. In addition to the Resident Assistant assigned to the floor by the Office of Residence Life, a language house international fellow from a Spanish-speaking country is hired by the Department of Modern Languages & Literatures to collaborate with residents in the planning of cultural events such as film screenings and discussions, instruction in Hispanic cuisine, conversation hours, cultural celebrations, and group outings.
Students who wish to apply should visit the Special Interest Housing section of Residence Life's website and contact the Hispanic House Advisor, [[pmcarrion, Paulina Carrion]], in the Department of Modern Languages & Literatures.
