Our community values academic and social balance;
we make sure to make time for fun. We enjoy alumni dinners,
movie nights, summer BBQs, game nights, lawn games, football tailgates,
and our two traditional all-school parties: Halloween and Black & White.
Residents of Phi Rho Sigma come from all walks of life,
and are joined together under one roof by their appreciation
for communal living. Community takes many forms at PRS, whether
it’s studying together, helping out with the dishes,
lending an ear, or lending a helping hand,
we take pride in our community and shared spaces.
If you’re looking for a tight-knit, diverse, and
unique slice of UMMS, Phi Rho is it.
Our Phi Rho Sigma “phamily” extends beyond the house to include our
extensive network of alumni, many of whom stop by the house to share
a meal or offer guidance and support. At home, upperclassmen offer insight
and personal experiences to those following in their footsteps.
These opportunities for mentorship give Phi Rho members a chance to
develop relationships, build professional networks,
and explore what lies ahead.
Our living room with a piano, a pool table, and comfortable
couches invites you to kick back, while the TV room beckons with an
obscure movie or football game. Chef Amy whips up 2 meals per day,
served hot and fresh out the kitchen (woo!), and our spacious
industrial kitchen gives you a chance to show off your baking skills.
Our basement has a gym, study space, and laundry room, so you can
stay fit, fresh, and clean clean. On Saturdays, we enjoy bagels; on Sundays,
brunch; and on Game Days, donuts! Go Blue!
Phi Rho Sigma is run by students
in conjunction with the alumni board. Returning residents of the house
have the opportunity to hold leadership positions on the executive board
where they can shape the direction of the house and our community.
Regardless of officer position, all members of the house work together
to preserve and enhance our living and learning environment.
Phi Rho Sigma owns a historic English Tudor home in Kerrytown,
just two blocks from the Taubman Health Sciences Library and
the University of Michigan Medical Campus. Our house is also close
to downtown Ann Arbor, the Farmer’s Market, and many fantastic
restaurants and bars. Nichols Arboretum, Argo Park, and the Huron
River are within walking or biking distance...tubing, anyone?
