Signature programming at Sutherland House includes the following events:
- Cafecitos: Professor Helmuth hosts Cafecitos several times a week, inspired by the Latin American coffee-hour tradition. There is always delicious food, lively discussion, and her famous hidden themes (we will explain when you get here!). Keep your curiosity well nurtured as you encounter a wide range of ideas, people, and projects. Attire is casual but the conversation is elegant and purposeful - all you need to do is show up, prepared to listen and engage.
- Sutherland Socials: From local food treats to talent shows, from movies to special guests, Sutherland House honors the importance of a study break during their weekly Sutherland Socials. We make sure our residents hear essential information every first-year student needs to know. Every week we leave our rooms to meet downstairs in the lobby for food, fun, and friendship. Sutherland Socials are a cherished time for residents and RAs alike!
