Student Living Learning Community

The First-Year Exploratory Studies (FYES) Living Learning Community is a unique opportunity for you to live together with a group of like-minded students and an incredible way to get involved during your first year. You’ll be roommates and residence hall neighbors with your fellow FYES students. Along with the academic benefits of having study groups organized right at your front door, it’s also a great way to form long-lasting friendships. 

We encourage all FYES Living Learning Community members to continue their exploration of Drexel’s campus and student activities, and the City of Philadelphia together.
