Zahm House
EST 1937


The Zahm Section in the North Dining Hall

The men of Zahm socialize a lot together. First and foremost, they normally eat their meals together daily in the Zahm section of the North Dining Hall (mid-south upper balcony). This is unique to the House and one of the reasons why the men of Zahm know one another so well. Freshmen and upperclassmen simply go to whatever spots are free at the tables and enjoy the company of their fellow Zahmbies.

Open Door Tradition

It's a long-standing tradition in Zahm for men to keep their doors open when they're in their rooms and not sleeping or studying so that fellow Zahmbies can pop-in to say "hi," to talk, to laugh, to play video games, or what not.
