Food Residential College

Explore the complex relationships between humans, food production and the natural world. Grow your own organic food, partner with a sustainable farm, examine industrial food production and study this central aspect of the human experience as a cultural phenomenon.

In the Food Residential College, you'll uncover new ways to think about what we eat. You'll engage in community service that addresses local food insecurity and study both the scientific and economic sides of the food industry. During weekly trips to a local organic farm, you'll learn how to grow vegetables without the need for chemicals. Typical field trips range from a local farmer's market and corn maze to a cultural food tour of Washington, D.C.
