Who's Eligible?Any undergraduate student is eligible to live in a Living-Learning Community at Emory. However, as the names indicate, First Year at Emory programs are only open to first-year students, the Second Year at Emory program is only open to second-year students, etc. Theme housing eligibility is determined by the department and/or club that sponsors the theme.
» First Year at Emory (FYE)
Any incoming first-year student living on campus is automatically a part of FYE. All first-year students are exposed to and can participate in programs that fulfill first-year learning objectives as part of FYE.
When submitting their housing applications, incoming first-year students can choose to rate their top three themed living-learning communities. Our office will take those preferences into consideration when making housing assignments, but we cannot guarantee that every student will be placed into their top choices.
Based on student housing assignments, residents living in specific buildings can opt to participate in the themed living-learning community within that building. Residence Life staff in those buildings program around the themes of: Citizenship, Sustainability, Global Cultures, Leadership, and Creativity & Innovation.
» Second Year at Emory (SYE)
All second-year students are asked to register for SYE before the beginning of housing selection (usually by the beginning of February). By registering for SYE, our office is able to determine what kinds of programs to offer throughout the year that relate to specific second-year learning outcomes.
