The Five Alumni Houses
The first four alumni houses are very similar to each other; with the fifth is very different but similar in style and material. Starting East, Shafer and Rovere houses are attached at the 2nd and 3rd floor balcony and are mirror images of each other. Steinway and Rueger houses are exact matches to Shafer and Rovere, respectively. Honey House stands alone and houses 8 students over 2 floors.
