A brief description of the themed semester, year, or first-year experience:

In 2010 Auburn offered the Earthsmart Learning Community which was a sustainability focused community. The 25 freshman in this group all shared a personal interest in sustainability and took a First Year Seminar in the fall of 2010 that focused on sustainability. Auburn also offeres a First Year Seminar not tied to a learning community that any student can take called UNIV 1100: Earthsmart. In Fall 2013 a new sustainability-themed learning community will be offered called "Live Green, Save Green."
