Freshman Academy Housing

Have any of you who are doing freshman academy chosen your rooms yet? I'm waiting anxiously for a room mate, but I'm afraid someone in my learning community is never going to pick that bed and it will go to someone else later!

    Could someone kindly explain what Freshman Academy is all about?What are the plus points? When you decide to join it...?
    And, is it open to internationals and non-members of the church?

    real quick Tahla.

    I am not completely 100% sure what Freshman Academy is. I know that you stay with a certain group of roomates who attend classes with you etc. etc.

    But the point I want to clear up is that every opportunity/program is available to ALL BYU STUDENTS. That includes Hindus, Non-LDS, Siberians etc etc. (you get the point ? :) )

    Good luck!

    Greaaat! :) I'll keep that point in mind.

    Well, their site says ..
    Fall 2009
    Freshman Academy offers two kinds of learning community experiences: 1) neighborhood learning communities based on the housing complex where students reside; and 2) non-housing specific learning communities. Students interested in participating in a Freshman Academy learning community must apply to Freshman Academy.

    All students will follow the same Housing application and room selection process regardless of their participation in a Freshman Academy learning community. Changing rooms from one housing complex to another (such as Helaman to Heritage Halls) will affect participation in neighborhood learning communities.

    So, I'm guessing that FA uses Helaman and Heritage Housing, the difference is that you're either a part of the learning community or not. Am I right?
