About the Position

When the house was being reconstructed in the 1980’s, the original Grove House Committee (at that time known as the Zetterberg Committee) decided it would be important to have a student caretaker to look after, manage, and live inside the Grove House.  The caretaker fulfills many roles – as a social chair, kitchen staff, student-faculty-staff-administration liaison, organizer, protector, and (at times) housekeeper – and is rewarded for their time, love, and involvement with free room and board, not to mention one of the most unusual and incredible living experiences of a lifetime!
