At Emory, we maintain the time-tested value of residential liberal arts education. And we do so at two colleges in the context of a major research university.

Our Campus Life team works to fulfill Emory's vision by ensuring the residential experience engages and inspires students throughout their time here. We bring first-year students together in residence halls at the center of campus, and all first- and second-year students live on campus, fostering a sense of community and involvement. Students enjoy hundreds of interest groups on campus as well as easy access to Atlanta's resources. | Video: Undergrad Experience

And we pair this commitment to campus-based education with a growing array of online initiatives to maximize educational potential for our students. | Degrees and programs

The Goizueta Summer Institute provides an intensive program for non-business majors. And a new NIH-funded program lets undergraduates study pediatric bioengineering.

For high school students, the popular Pre-College Program offers two-week and six-week programs. Younger family members can enjoy arts and athletic camps.

For scholars, Emory is hosting an NEH summer institute about black aesthetics. Emory's Oxford College hosts the annual Oxford Institute for Environmental Education for school science teachers.
