Apply to live in Turath House

Carina Kurban ’14 wants you to live with her (and friends):

Are you interested in Arab/Middle Eastern/Muslim cultures? Do you like hummus, hookah, and henna? Do you want to live in a brick house with a fenced-in backyard, a screened-in porch, a dishwasher, private laundry machines, and the world’s most adorable DOG? Then apply to live in Turath House! Turath is currently seeking a sophomore or junior male to live in a gorgeous 300-sq ft double that has a built-in fireplace and built-in shelves. (Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be Arab, Middle Eastern, or Muslim to live in the house, nor do you need to speak Arabic). APPLY NOW!
