Mathematics major Cassandra Schettino ’06 (Clinton, Conn.), president of Haven, says the Farber Hall group is more than a living floor, it’s also a club.

“The people on the floor really get to know each other and become friends,” says Schettino, who joined Haven last fall. “Most of the time, the lounge is full with people either playing games, working, or just hanging out. I would recommend the floor to anyone who would like to live in a substance-free environment.”

The club also hosts events such as game nights, study breaks, a Thanksgiving dinner, and a trip to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Fair. Haven hopes to have a band play on campus and a costume party.

Treasurer Jennifer Stewart ’06 (Glenshaw, Pa.) says she joined Haven because she wanted to live with other people who have a non-alcohol lifestyle.

“We’re like a little family. It’s a great place to have fun with people without alcohol. We don’t need to be drunk to have a good time,” says Stewart, a chemical engineering major.

Music major Jack Furlong ’05 (Hopewell, N.J.) has been a member of Haven for three years and is committed to a substance-free life. His favorite aspect of the living group is the community environment. He says it is “very welcoming” to walk into the lounge and see people playing video games, board games, and card games.

“I encourage others to join in order to discover how beautiful life can be without substances,” Furlong says. “I think this is a great way to live and learn.”

Schettino adds, “The goal of the students in the living group is to live in a substance-free environment while still being able to hang out and have fun!”
