**Since significant commitment to the IH activities is mandatory for participation, student athletes, fraternity/sorority members and students who work full time are unlikely to be selected for participation. If a member of the International House program proves him/herself to be an engaged and successful member, exceptions can be made to allow them to also join a team, student organization, or obtain full-time employment. Students should discuss their status with the director before making any changes to their schedule that may interfere with their participation in the program before committing themselves to either choice.
