Emory is one of four colleges in the nation ranked in the top 20 for both academics and athletics. We believe athletics are for everyone, so we offer several different levels of play. We want our students to participate in sports, not to be mere spectators. We often are asked why we don't have a football team. We prefer of offer sports our students can participate in throughout their lives and encourage students to engage in athletics as a lifelong pursuit rather than a passing pastime of youth. This approach has worked for us, as our (nonexistent) football team is still undefeated and you can buy a t-shirt at the campus bookstore that boasts just that.
