The Grove House is a craftsman-style home/creature that currently serves as a restaurant, student center, and residence at Pitzer College in Claremont, California. The Grove House was the first student cultural center established at Pitzer College. It remains the touchstone of the Pitzer campus and offers a respite from daily concerns and academic pressures. Quiet conversations, reading or writing, cultural events such as musical performances in the living room, poetry readings in the Bert Meyers Poetry Room, or student art exhibitions in the Barbra Hinshaw Art Gallery; a womyn’s center, an ecology center and kitchen turned restaurant, for nutritious foods are all part of the Grove House experience. This blog serves as its own little diary of events, reflections, and photos – posted by the Grove House caretaker, kitchen manager, Zenia Gutierrez, committee members, and kitchen staff.
