Welcome to Dante – home of the Phoenix! Dante House is named after Dante Alighieri, a 13th-14th century Italian poet / politician, and one of the most famous figures of world literature, who was admired most for his epic work, The Divine Comedy.
We take as our mascot the legendary bird the phoenix. According to legend, only one phoenix could exist at a time; it could live up to 500 years. As its end approached, the phoenix built a nest, set itself on fire, and was consumed by the flames. From the fire sprang a new phoenix, which was stronger than its predecessor.
Our house motto, Viribus Unitis, means “by united efforts.” Dante is a brotherhood. We depend on the collective efforts of all our members to ensure success. EVERYONE has been granted a God-given talent — those talents are put to work in Dante!
Dante won the inaugural House Cup in 2002 and again in 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2016. You could be part of the tradition that is Dante!
