A group of Dunster House students and tutors are attempting to raise $3000 to build a House sauna, Jerome M. Culp, a founding member of the Dunster Sauna Club, said Wednesday.
"We plan to convert Dunster's basement janitor's room into the proposed sauna area--already down there are two showers and bathroom facilities." James A. Merolla '78, an organizer of the project, said Wednesday.
The proposed sauna would accommodate approximately ten people at a time for 15 minute periods, Merolla said. Members would establish co-ed and non co-ed hours, he said.
"We're going to have a guest policy for students from other Houses," Merolla added.
Dunster residents will be eligible to buy a one-year membership to the sauna for $10, or a founding membership for $50, Merolla said. The Dunster House Committee will contribute $600 to the project, he added.
If all goes as planned, the sauna will be completed by November 15.

Things We Don’t Understand About HarvardKirkland is on Dunster Street, while Kirkland Street and Quincy Street intersect behind Annenberg, which is nowhere near Quincy or Kirkland (or Dunster for that matter). Harvard Street merges into Mass Ave before it gets to Harvard. On that note, Yenching Auditorium isn’t in the Harvard-Yenching Institute, and Mather Hall is not in Mather House, but is actually in Old Quincy. It’s no wonder that Harvard operates on Harvard time, because clearly seven minutes (or more) is used to figure out the lay of the land.
