The two main people you will encounter and get to know during your residence at the Orchid House, besides your room mates, are Francine Talmadge and Phillip Orzi. We are the ones taking care of you. Francine is the House “mom”, she is the one baking her heart out for breakfast and dessert. She is also the one, who will make sure that house rules are observed. At your first meeting, she might seem scary, but if you take the time to get to know her, you will quickly discover, that behind the stern exterior, there is a person with a lot of humor, fun and good sound advice. Francine has the mothering instinct and a degree in special education with focus on teenagers with behavioral disorders. She always has an open ear and loves to help. Being from Germany, she also understands the difficulties that an international student might encounter, by living in Santa Barbara.
The Orchid House of Santa Barbara is a delightful and stylish Student Residence Hall. An enjoyable and secure accommodation to study, relax and feel at home in its charming atmosphere.
