Inter-House Council

Purpose

The Inter-House Council (IHC) is a body that represents the undergraduate population living in the housing system (about 60% of the College) on issues such as dining, housing, and transportation. There are a number of committees that deal directly with those three issues in cooperation with the housing staff and the relevant companies with which the University contracts. Other committees that have existed include the printing committee, reviewing the upcoming switch to pay printing at USITE, and one dealing with the further integration of Court Theater into the University community. The IHC also holds events, such as the annual Tug-O-War and the always hilarious roommate game. These events build interhouse unity, interhouse rivalries, and serve as an important conduit of free food to the undergraduate population. Later in the year, IHC will also sponsors an annual blood drive. They meet weekly, except for Finals Week of each quarter.
