Olympic Houses

What is an Olympic House?

Olympic Houses are smaller groups within Springfield, composed of approximately one quarter of our members, that coordinate events and allow members to connect with each other on a smaller scale. The houses - Ares, Hermes, Athena, and Artemis - compete in events throughout the year and participate in smaller events like Mario Kart tournaments, dinners, and casual hangouts. Each house is led by two enthusiastic Springfielders and new “Demigods” are elected each year.


House Cup

Each year, there is a yearlong battle between the four houses for Honor and Glory! The cup is won by accumulating points through different events and competitions, with the Cup being awarded during THON.

So, what is being in a house all about?

Being apart of such a large and diverse organization like Springfield can definitely be intimidating at first glance! Joining a house allowed me to personally get to know new members and create strong bonds of friendship with upperclassmen. This organization is wonderful, but the people in it make it even more amazing.

Houses are a great way to get fully immersed in the wonderful community of Springfield! They allow you to interact with Springfield members in smaller settings get to know members of all different years. From playing Mario Kart at someone’s apartment until 3am on a Tuesday, to taking group naps on the Hub lawn, Houses give Springfielders the opportunity to be their wacky, weird selves in a more intimate setting.

Springfield is such a great organization to be a part of, but I have to admit, when I first joined as a freshman I was a little bit overwhelmed with just how many people there were. Houses gave me a smaller group of people to get to know better, and some of them have become my best friends! They helped neutralize the difficulty of making friends in a big org, and let you meet upperclassmen who are always ready to help if you need it!
