Fiske House is a small Residence Hall that is part of the Modern Languages and Cultures' International Language Living and Learning area—I-Space. This living area is designated for students studying the French, German, or Spanish language. Its goals are to promote second-language acquisition and to encourage international awareness among its residents and the campus at large. Selection for residency in this living area is based on a declared major or minor in French, German, or Spanish, previous or current participation in an off-campus program of study in any country where French, German, or Spanish is spoken, and previous or current study of foreign language. Students enrolled in Japanese courses may also apply to live in Fiske. Students pledge to speak the intended language within their living quarters. Eligible students can earn .25 unit for residency in Fiske House for one semester and active participation in weekly programs in the student's respective language house as well as in cultural events for all Fiske residents.
Building your own loft is prohibited. All College furniture must remain in the room throughout the entire academic year.
