Welcome to Alice Cook House

Alice Cook House opened in August 2004 and was the first of five Houses in the West Campus House System, Cornell University's residential college initiative. The House was named in honor of Cornell faculty member Alice Hanson Cook (1903-1998).

Alice Cook House also hosts the Language House, a language immersion living-learning community housed in Boldt Hall.

West Campus House System Mission: A community of students and faculty gathered in a spirit of inquiry and active citizenship.

West Campus House System Program Goals:

  • Develop a sense of belonging to one's House.
  • Create safe, healthy, and welcoming communities.
  • Build meaningful relationships between residents and faculty.
  • Create opportunities for intellectual exploration that lead to a deeper understanding of one's discipline, exposure to a broad range of knowledge, and a desire to be a lifelong learner.
  • Encourage student engagement in the House System and provide opportunities for the development of student leadership skills.
  • Provide opportunities for students to engage as citizens in the broader community.
  • Help students navigate the opportunities available to them at Cornell.
