Black Student Alliance (BSA) House
The Black Student Alliance House, located at 22 Eagle Row, provides residents and the greater community, an opportunity to create a space where the Black community thrives and expands. The house is designed to foster and uplift the Black community as well as challenge residents’ understanding of Blackness.  For the 2016-2017 academic year, the BSA House will focus on foundational theories and concepts surrounding Blackness. A “curriculum” will be developed with various academic offices to bring the community a variety of materials that will prove useful in moving forward from normative narratives. The goal of the entire space is to provide safe haven to Black identifying students and be thoroughly dedicated to supporting them.

The Emory Black Student Alliance is honored to have the ability to provide this residential opportunity to our community. Through all kinds of fellowship, food, and events - hosted by us and the other Black student organizations - we collectively hope to continue the work to strengthen the community, build to self-sufficiency, and educate each other.

Who Can Apply?
Spaces in the BSA House are open to all rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors. All students dedicated to doing intellectual work in the name of freedom and Blackness, are encouraged to apply. We encourage students from all backgrounds while stressing the formative experience we believe residency can have on Black identifying students. We further encourage applicants to make sure they are dedicated to the mission of the House (and the organization) and commit themselves to participating fully in the living-learning experience.
