All House members pay social dues of $90 a semester, and these funds become the bulk of the Social Account, managed by the House as a whole as advised by the Social Committee. The funds are used to pay for social events, trips House members take to nearby attractions. Recent destinations have included Yoshi’s Jazz Club in Oakland, Paramount’s Great America in Santa Clara, SBC Park in San Francisco for a Giants baseball game, and the Berkeley Ice Center (for games of Broomball, a popular sport among House members). Each semester, the Social Committee schedules a formal dinner and a formal dance as well.
Often, and especially during holidays, social events take place at Tellefsen Hall. Favorites include the annual Halloween pumpkin carving contest, a Thanksgiving Dinner, and the weasel-egg hunt at Easter.
