The largest Program House on south campus is Lord-Saunders, also known as Afrikan Heritage House. Approximately 80 students live in Lord-Saunders creating a family atmosphere that extends beyond the house and into the larger campus community. This modern building overlooking South Bowl is the center of activity for students who want to heighten their understanding of cultures, traditions, and issues among African, African American, and Afrikan Caribbean societies.
