NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.– Organizers behind Westminster’s Tiny House Project are inviting alumni, students, staff, faculty and the public to join the Tiny House dedication and open house celebration during Homecoming and Reunion Weekend.
On Friday, Oct. 13 at 4:30 p.m., the student Tiny House Team, the New Castle School Trades students and instructors, and the many supporters and volunteers who helped with the construction will officially dedicate the house at its current campus location, the corner of Prospect Street and College Drive. On Saturday, Oct.13, the Tiny House team will have an open house for alumni and friends from 9 a.m. to noon.
The Tiny House Project allows Westminster College to develop a unique living/learning educational experience that integrates concepts of sustainability, simple living, environmental science/studies into students’ coursework and lifestyles. Each student enrolled in a Tiny House-linked course will experience “tiny living” for approximately one-two weeks (new students will rotate into the TH’s every one-two weeks). Student learning objectives associated with tiny living will be meaningfully integrated into Tiny House-linked coursework. This novel educational model which incorporates tiny living into the student’s academic experience will position Westminster College as an innovator in sustainability education.
