Some of our favorite memories of living in the HER House stem from our time spent in the kitchen cooking and sharing meals and stories with our HER housemates. In an attempt to revive some of that nostalgia, but also provide a chance to share our stories and learn some new ones from current House members, HERAA is hosting an Alumnae Cook Night at the HER House!

Please join us as a cook or fellow diner. We’ll be overseeing a delicious meal and sharing space around the table with current residents. Please RSVP by Sunday, April 29 to

And if you aren’t able to join us, please consider sending us your favorite recipes to add to our growing online HER House cookbook. You can find other recipes here on our website.
