Casa Émory provides students with the opportunity of living in a Spanish-speaking environment. It is also a center for departmental activities ranging from informal discussions of contemporary topics to the staging of cultural activities such as films, lectures, music and dance. When possible, a student from the Universidad de Salamanca resides in the building and serves as a liaison between Casa Émory and the Department of Spanish. The affairs of the House are governed by a Constitution that defines the goals, responsibilities and expectations of its residents.
Casa Émory accommodates nine students and, when possible, two graduate students - one who is a native Spanish speaker and one who is a native Portuguese speaker. Casa Émory offers a number of programs for students who are Spanish and Portuguese majors and minors, native and heritage speakers, students who are planning to study abroad or have returned from abroad, and others with a strong interest in the Ibero-American world. Even though living in Casa Émory carries no credit, it is strongly recommended as an option for students who plan to study abroad or have returned from abroad and wish to maintain their language skills. Spanish or Portuguese should be spoken at all times in the public areas of the house. An intermediate to advanced level of Spanish or Portuguese (212 level or higher) is recommended.
Spaces in Casa are open to all rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors who are interested in working on language skills or learning about Hispanic cultures. Residents are expected to be active in the planning and implementation of house and campus programming. The house layout is either suite-style (5) or communal-style (5) single rooms.
