Current resident's experience during Shelter in Place: 

"In times of despair, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives."

I-House is like a world-wide family. Even during the pandemic, the core components of International House remain the same- Love and Wood ["What is the I-House made of? Wood -- and Love"]. My parents have found my stay at I-House invaluable as it has sheltered me from many adversities, and my friends envied me for having all the mundane necessities and items of utility like a luxury. Over the years, I see myself coming back to this place again and again.
