Emory, it could be said, offers a twist on the famous Latin phrase seen on the back of U.S. coins: e pluribus unum. Rather than “out of many, one,” at Emory students find within one top-tier institution many fine choices.
First, Emory offers students two exceptional choices to begin their undergraduate education. They may apply to Emory College of Arts and Sciences, our four-year undergraduate division that offers an innovative, rigorous liberal arts education with the resources and facilities you’d expect from a major research university in a large city. Or students may apply to Oxford College and spend their first two years on Emory’s original campus, thirty-eight miles (61 km) east of Atlanta, where they’ll have access to the same innovation and uncompromising educational standards, along with unique opportunities for leadership and unparalleled student-teacher ratios in a small-college setting. As juniors, Oxford students continue on the Atlanta campus.
Once students have the first two years of liberal arts education under their belts, they can continue into one of Emory College’s majors or apply to the Nell Hodgson School of Nursing or Goizueta Business School. With any one of these choices, they’ll be students of Emory University, ranked on Kiplinger’s Personal Finance list of the best values among private universities.
