Background:Turner House was founded in 1998 and opened in the Fall in order to accommodate the demand for another eating house. It is named after Catherine Turner, class of 1993, for her role as a service coordinator while at Davidson. Members that signed up during the proposal for Turner in the Spring of 1998 totaled 78. The first president was Mary Shell Brosche, and the mascot is a frog. Today: Today, Turner is still focused on service and local engagement, along with fostering a fun and diverse community of women. We have our own active “T-BLOCK,” where members support other members in their various activities and accomplishments outside of the house. T-BLOCK has been seen everywhere from member’s volleyball games to research project presentations. Turner proudly claims the PCC’s largest tables, where we squeeze together as many members as possible during meals. Eating at the house is a great way to bond and get to know fellow members. Turner has also been the proud owner of Greek Week Trophy for the past two years. Turner’s philanthropy efforts have been focused on supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Every fall we host a campus-wide cornhole tournament to fundraise and we go to Light the Night, a walk in Charlotte to support this organization. Some of Turner's favorite social events include our Pretty Pretty Princess Party, Ke$ha Sisterhood, and Turner Boyband, among many others. The campus is covered each year in 8 pounds of glitter from Ke$ha, and if you see a girl in a tutu and tiara wandering around campus, she’s probably a Turner girl.
