Well-Being House Still Accepting Applications for Three New House Members

More on the program house open slot roundup, from Natalie Sacks ’14:

Well-Being House Still Accepting Applications for Three New House Members This Spring!

It’s a weeknight, and that kid down the hall is blasting music so loud you can feel the vibrations.  You missed dinner, but can’t cook for yourself because your tiny dorm kitchen is a total mess.  The smokers outside are blowing smoke up through your window.  Wish you could live somewhere better?

Well-Being House is a beautiful house with enormous rooms, a well-stocked kitchen bigger than the one you have back home, and a welcoming community accepting of all kinds of people.  Residents do not have to live substance-free, but no drugs or alcohol are allowed within the house.

This spring, we have three spaces open in the house, all in doubles.  We will be accepting applications on a rolling basis, so if you apply, you will find out if you’ve gotten in within two days.  Contact nsacks(at)wes for more information, and get ready for the best Wes housing experience you’ve ever had.

What: Well-Being House Open Slots
Where: 250 Court Street
