WHO2010 Rising Sophomore Application

35 spaces will be reserved for sophomore applicants.

Our goal is to make this program less selective than most living groups on campus. We want to foster an atmosphere of cooperation rather than competition. Sophomore women will answer three brief questions to apply to live in the community. We will use a random lottery to allot rooms after selecting applicants who demonstrate a sincere desire to have this kind of experience. Students will not be involved in the selection of the residents; rather it will be conducted by a committee composed of the Women's Center staff and Duke faculty, with input from RLHS.

Sample application questions are listed below so you can start thinking about your answers.

  • Why do you want to live in WHO?
  • What are your experiences being a mentor/mentee? Are you open to such a relationship?
  • What are your expectations of WHO? What do you want to get out of it?
