Application Process
The first part of the application collects basic demographic and background details as well as key attributes needed to facilitate room/roommate placement decisions to be made over the summer. This information will not be used to evaluate an applicant's qualification for admission; we support the Fair Housing Act as amended, prohibiting discrimination in housing based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, handicap or familial status. This noted, because BHRC seeks students who are enthusiastic about our model and want to actively participate in it, we have the second part of our application where we ask you to submit responses to a series of key questions that will help get to know you better and get a deep understanding why you want to live in Bowles Hall. In addition to these two sections, applicants are afforded the optional opportunity to upload additional information you'd like us to consider (resume, video, audio files, etc.). Upon submission, the application then goes to members of our Selection Committee, a group composed of current Bowles Hall students. Having access only to essay answers, each committee member individually assesses student responses and scores each applicant based on a pre-determined scale. These ratings are averaged to establish Accepted or Waitlist status for each application period. Notifications are sent via email to the applicant. We thank you for your interest and look forward to reviewing your application.
