106 Otis St. Walla Walla, WA 99362
Established in 1977, the MECCA (Multi-Ethnic Center for Cultural Affairs) House has four bedrooms and comfortably houses an average of four residents and one Resident Assistant. This house focuses on raising diversity awareness on Whitman’s campus by celebrating and promoting different cultures. For example, some traditional events that take place here include race discussions, international potlucks, international current events forums, and activities related to different cultures.
The MECCA House is affiliated with the Intercultural Center and is assigned an adviser from this office. At least once in the semester, the house adviser is invited over for dinner to discuss the programs that MECCA’s residents are planning for the semester.
Residents of MECCA House are responsible for completing weekly chores, having active involvement within the house and the Interest House Community, and promoting MECCA-sponsored events and activities.
If you would like to arrange to eat dinner at MECCA, or have any questions about house activities, please contact the RA.
