Dear friends of Connor House,
Hello! We are so glad that you are willing to be a part of the story of Connor with us for the 2018-2019 academic year! Connor is one of four eating houses on Davidson College’s campus and one of fifteen organizations on the Patterson Court Council. Each year, the house has roughly 160 affiliates after its membership movement during the spring semester. All Connor women, alums and current students alike, are invested in the house’s commitment to sisterhood. Currently, the house is administered by an executive board of thirty-five members, whose jobs range from house management to publicity. The executive board ensures that business surrounding the many aspects of Connor runs smoothly each semester. Each semester, Connor members also attend multiple educational events that range in topics from Sexual Harassment, Nutrition, to Alcohol Education throughout the semester. We do manage to have our fair share of fun, though! The house hosts a variety of college-wide parties and events, from the annual fall kick-off “Toga Night” to the “Spice Girls” themed party each spring. The fun-loving members of Connor, commonly known as the Patterson Court’s “Jesters,” welcome all Davidson students to their house for both social and service events. In addition to their outgoing and fun-loving nature, Connor Jesters can be characterized by their commitment to give back to their community through a variety of service and philanthropic events. These projects include fundraising with Friends for an Earlier Breast Cancer Test, the John Frankel Memorial Scholarship alongside members of Kappa Sigma Fraternity at Davidson College, and the Jay Chitty Memorial Scholarship. Connor also partners with several other Patterson Court organizations each year in order to accomplish its service and philanthropic goals and to form new friendships within the Davidson community. As leaders of the house, it inspires us to see the commitment that each member has to the house’s service missions. In the coming year, be sure to check our news and events section for updates on upcoming events with Connor House. Between our monthly Think Pink events, weekly Q’doba fundraisers, ‘Pink’ sports games, and our annual Bosom Buddies event on March 23th, 2019, the Jesters have much to anticipate this year. We hope that you will join us! Thanks to everyone for your generous support!
