New Student Outreach & Programming

Not only does the House serve as a large network of support for our new students, we also welcome pre-college and prospective students to come visit us on their campus tours so that they can get a glimpse of student life at the House. For information on any of these offerings, please contact

Pre-College & Prospective Students
The House offers student panel discussions and center tours to middle and high school visitors. To request a House tour, email

Additionally, our student organizations host events during Multicultural Open House and Bulldog Days to give prospective students a taste of life at the House. For the House’s Bulldog Days schedule, please click here.

Peer Liaison Program
Peer Liaisons (PLs) are upperlevel students who help mentor and connect First Year students to the wealth of support and programming initiatives based in the Afro-American Cultural Center, the Asian American Cultural Center, the La Casa: Latino Cultural Center, the Native American Cultural Center, the Office of International Students and Scholars, and the Office of LGBTQ Resources, the University Chaplain’s Office; across the University; and New Haven.

In addition to holding individual mentoring sessions and “family” activities to help facilitate their mentees’ smooth transition to college, the House’s PLs work together coordinate events for our first year students based around academic success and cultural/social engagement. Events include a semesterly bluebooking party (for course selection), mall trip for winter gear, sailing and ski/ice skating trips, and the House’s annual Broadway trip.
