Life as a student at Emory University is as you can imagine quite busy. Our students engage in a fulfilling and rewarding college experience that balances class work, extracurricular involvement, a commitment to leadership and service, and time with friends. Emory students take their academic pursuits seriously but also find numerous outlets to have fun and remain socially involved.
To help you get a sense of a day in the life at Emory, we caught up with a few students and followed them around campus. These videos can provide a sense of life at Emory, but in addition we recommend planning a visit to campus. To view more of Emory through the eyes of current student, we also suggest checking out the Emory Admission Fellows Blog and Emory University YouTube page.
All “A Day in the Life at Emory” videos conceptualized, filmed, edited, and produced by Emory junior Olivia Luz.
