While many programs are offered as a part of First Year at Emory, there are a number of programs that are called signature programs. These programs often involve collaboration within the Emory Campus Life, academic departments, the Office for Undergraduate Education, the Emory community, etc.
At the end of their time living in the Creativity & the Arts, students will be able to draw connections between non-traditional "creativity" and the field in which they are interested. As a capstone project, the residents of each hall will develop a continuing program or piece that represents their understanding of creativity. Below is a list of past programs.
» Creativity Conversations - Reflect
Creativity Conversations put distinguished members of the Emory and greater Atlanta community in conversation with students in the residence hall. We hope to give the Emory community unique access into the minds and processes of the heavy hitters in a wide range of fields. Previous topics have included Media in the Modern Age, Entrepreneurship, the State of Emory with President Wagner, and the History of Music. Join us in reflecting on the big questions.
» Welcome to Atlanta - Explore
Both Emory and Atlanta offer a wide range of experience from the small town feel of Emory village to the offbeat stylings of Little Five Points to the big attractions like the High Museum and the Georgia Aquarium. Staff members coordinate trips and Residence Life and Housing subsidizes the cost to help you draw inspiration from the world around you.
» FriDIY - Create
Once a month (usually a FriDIY) the staff and students pick a do-it-yourself project. We gather the supplies and have them available for students throughout the day. The staff supervises technique and students are invited to put whatever spin they want on the project. Create a tye-dye t-shirt or some Crayola art or bring your own DIY project and work on it with some friends!
» Resident Sponsorships - Do
Be creative and take control. Work with some of our Residence Life staff members to bring your idea to life. We accept applications for students to put together their own program ideas.
