Each year, twelve undergraduate students from the College of Humanities are selected to live in the O.C. Tanner Humanities House in historic Fort Douglas.
As global citizens, we have rights and responsibilities to the communities and the world we inhabit. Throughout our year together, we will explore the notion of citizenship on multiple levels. From living community to global community, we will delve into a yearlong theme, questioning its implications on the layers that wrap around our year.
Originally built in the 1870’s as officers’ quarters, the house has been renovated to create a unique living and learning community for students. As residents of the house, students have the opportunity to learn from peers, develop strong relationships with faculty, engage in college events, and enjoy a memorable and exciting interdisciplinary atmosphere in a tight-knit and supportive community.
Residents receive $1,200 annual scholarship from the College of Humanities.
