Welcome, new and returning students! Our orientation programs provide new students with an introduction to all the ways they can pursue personal goals and contribute to campus life and community. Each of our nine schools has its own orientation schedule.
Special events for new undergraduates include the traditional Coke Toasts, the Class of 2018 Class Photo, the Oxford Olympics and the Songfest competition. | Emory College of Arts and Sciences | Oxford College
Emory’s Goizueta Business School tied for 7th in Poets and Quants’ recent ranking of the Top 100 Undergraduate Business Programs in the nation. This ranking is based on analysis of program rankings by Bloomberg Businessweek and U.S. News & World Report in combination with total university rankings by the latter.
Emory is distinctive as a national research university with a strong and visible liberal arts core that includes a liberal arts presence in every school. All undergraduate programs at Emory begin with two years of study in a vibrant liberal arts curriculum to develop both broad knowledge and the capacity for reflective critical thinking. Students enter the BBA program as juniors.
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.
