House of Winston Churchill

House of Winston Churchill

“Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

Brotherhood

Brotherhood is fellowship, an alliance, a bond of friendship and understanding between one another.

Courage

Courage is the strength it takes to realize that there is no success without failure.

Servanthood

Servanthood is the act of humbly putting the good of others before self.

Excellence

Excellence is not an act, but a habit. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence; rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do.

House Crest

Coventas Fraternum

This Latin phrase, translated “Union of Brothers,” is the bond that the members of our House share with one of another.

Churchill Silhouette

Winston Churchill once said, “Success consists of going from failure to failure without the loss of enthusiasm.” This is the type of character the House of Sir Winston Churchill seeks to emulate. We recognize that college isn’t about achieving perfection, it’s about personal growth in all facets of life. We proudly represent our namesake on our crest to reminded us to make daily choices that take us one step closer to achieving our goals.

Three Crosses

These represent Christ’s display of servanthood and love for the entire world by giving his life as a sacrifice on the Cross at Golgotha. In this House, we value servanthood and seek to practice it daily as Christ did.

Book

The book represents a collection of Churchill’s speeches and acts as a reminder that the future is always ours to write. “History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.” —Churchill

Lion

The lion, which is also the College mascot, reminds us to relentlessly fight in the face of life’s challenges, no matter how hard they may appear.

Celtic Knots

These symbolize the members of our House. Historically, these knots were used to represent an eternal bond and affinity with nature. In our House, we use these to represent the lasting bond in our brotherhood.
