The Rose O’Neill


Literary House

We serve as one of the cultural hubs on campus, offering literary programs, classroom spaces, support to student groups, professional training, and—among other things—the chance to work with an antique printing press. Stop by for a cup of tea made in our kitchen, catch a poetry or fiction reading, or curl up with a thick book.
