 Hank Ingram House

"There are many reasons that living in Hank Ingram has proven to be a life-changing experience for me, but I would say the greatest reason is certainly the people. Having the most people out of any House on The Commons means more opportunities for diverse dialogue, more unique experiences to undergo with your peers, and a Hank community 300-strong that is endemically rooting for everyone to succeed.
- Jackson Vaught, Hank Ingram House Resident Adviser
