"Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind!" ~ Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Ravenclaw house is one of the four Houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. Established by Rowena Ravenclaw, those students chosen by the sorting hat for this particular house are chosen due to their intelligence. They are also known for their wit, creativity, wisdom, and love of books & all things learning. Students in this house often have to be reminded that not everything can be learned in a book, and that some of life's lessons are learned by doing.
Ravenclaw's house's animal is the eagle, its colours blue and bronze, and its current head of house is Annie Collins. The patron ghost of this house still remains as the Grey Lady, the daughter of the house's founder Rowena Ravenclaw.
