HOUSE Program


We’ve changed!

The H.O.U.S.E. (Helping Odette Undergraduate Students Excel) iniative is a program at the Odette School of Business that was made to help students get involved. From day one students are put into one of four houses and matched up with a leader who is very knowledgeable and has been through what you are currently going through. The program awards points for each H.O.U.S.E. sponsored event at Odette in hopes of engaging students outside of the classroom setting. The H.O.U.S.E. program is orchestrated by the Odette Commerce Society with administration actively involved. The H.O.U.S.E. with the most points will be rewarded for their hard work with a spectacular price at the end!

Each house will have approximately 6-7 upper year students. Referred to as Leaders, they are here to provide you with support and show you what it means to be a part of the Odette family!
