Not just for languages anymore....
Since the late 1990s Parish House has been home to students interested in foreign languages and cultures, as well as the Language Associates, native speakers who come to Carleton for a year to assist with language programming.
However, in order to provide a place for all students who share a passion for learning about other parts of the world, beginning in 2014–2015 the entire house will be designated "International House." Programming in the house will take on an international flavor: learn the lambada, discuss world affairs, cook Chinese dumplings, watch Russian cartoons—all without leaving the comfort of your dorm.
Starting in 2016-17 rooms will be designated "international interest," and will be allotted through regular room draw. By drawing into Parish you will be joining a diverse and enthusiastic community of world citizens!
