All first-year students enroll in the First-Year at Emory Program, offering students unique academic programming taught in small classes of 19 or fewer students, as well as social events, helping students acclimate to campus. Classes are taught by leading faculty in their fields, and advisors are faculty familiar with your program. Beyond the classroom, internships, study abroad, and research opportunities abound as well!
With over 550 student clubs, sports teams, and performing arts groups - and our unusual and fun traditions - Emory is a great place for students who want to organize, lead, and be a part of it all. You can enjoy Wonderful Wednesdays, where each week a different campus organization sponsors activities in the heart of campus, such as Puppy-palooza, bouncy castles, or live music.
