Aanschuiven bij Cyclamenstraat 11

Dinner @ Cyclamenstraat 11

7 June 2016

Every two weeks Cursor visits a student house in Eindhoven every two weeks. The cooks reveal their secret recipes and we get to know the house and it's its inhabitantsresidents. This time it's Dinner @ Ichthus House, Cyclamenstraat 11.

What kind of house is this?

This house is home to eight students who share a Christian lifestyle; most of them are members of Ichthus, the Christian student association. Only five people sit down to dinner in the spacious kitchen cum living room. “We eat, pray and read the Bible together,” says main tenant David van der Schoor (fifth-year Architecture, Building and Planning). “But our belief isn't our only topic of conversation, you know. We also talk about how the day went,” says Roos Krösschell, (second-year Chemical Engineering) after a short prayer spoken by David in advance of the meal.

What traditions, customs or special house rules do you have?

As well as an annual house party, regular barbecues and the annual St Nicholas party, they all stand at the foot of the stairs and yell "Dinner" when the meal is ready. “And every year during Orientation Week we make about 2500 pancakes with the three other Christian houses in the city,” adds Paula Uittenbogaard (third-year Biomedical Engineering). Every resident has to vacate his or her room after three years to make way for a newcomer and they all leave their handprints on a wall in the house, the Wall of Fame.
