In the midst of a pandemic affecting every aspect of life, we continue to be inspired by the strength of our global Alumni community and the ways we carry forth the I-House Spirit. “I-House At Home” (IHAH) is a new project by International House NY to collect the experiences of our Alumni impacted by COVID-19. We hope this project will reveal further insights about our community’s unique experiences of the pandemic and serve as a way for Alumni to continue to connect, learn and share from each other during this uncertain time.
Additionally, this project will be preserved in the I-House Archives to be made accessible for future generations interested in looking back on this unprecedented time.
