How do I apply to HERE?
You must apply online through MyRose-Hulman using the login credentials assigned to you during the admissions process.
Can I apply to both HERE and ESCALATE?
Yes. Students may apply to both programs. However, as these programs are designed as living-learning opportunities, a student can be a member of only one cohort. If you intend to apply to both programs, you will need to submit both applications no later than 11:59 p.m. EDT, Friday, June 17. If you are granted a spot in both programs, you will have to choose in which program you intend to participate by Friday, June 24.
What if I am NOT majoring in engineering?
HERE is applicable for students of all majors. HERE aspires to develop a sustainability mentality and knowledge base, helping students to look for the big picture and grow toward a global, systems perspective of the challenges they will face in their lives and careers. We aspires to a foundational way of thinking that is vital for our future as engineers, scientists, mathematicians and citizens of the world.
Do I still need to do the Housing Survey?
Yes. It is very important, even if you apply to become a member of HERE, that you log in to Banner Web and complete the Housing Survey. Not all students who apply to HERE are guaranteed to be selected as participants, so it is important that your housing preferences be noted as requested in the Housing Survey.
What if I’ve already done the Housing Survey and didn’t list Blumberg? Do I need to redo my housing survey?
No. There is no need to adjust your Housing Survey on the basis of your intention to apply to be part of HERE. Students who are granted a spot in HERE will automatically be placed into housing in Blumberg Hall.
Can I still live in Blumberg if I’m not in HERE?
Yes. The HERE program will each occupy only rooms on designated floors in Blumberg Hall. As such, there are rooms available on other floors for students who do not wish to participate in the living-learning program. Also, Mees Hall is the third of the so-called “ triplets” (Blumberg, Mees, and Scharpenberg), so there are plenty of opportunities to live in one of these halls for students not wishing to be in HERE.
