New Student Programs | First-Year Student Emails


JUNE 9, 2021

Hi {{Preferred}}!

It's been a while since you researched colleges, submitted applications, and ultimately chose Emory as the academic community for you! We think you made that decision, in part, because of the world-class faculty you will get to meet from your very first day on campus. Through your coursework, research, and even during your Orientation Week, Emory’s award-winning faculty will play a crucial role in your education, and are super excited to meet you in August.

As you begin to think about the academic connections you will make as an Emory student, it may be helpful to start exploring the Emory College Catalog to see what departments interest you or what programs align with your passions.

What Do YOU Need To Be Successful?

There are many differences between the academic experience you had in high school  and what classes at Emory will look like – from course formats to volume of reading. 

We want you to be successful in the classroom, so if you’ve previously had  accommodations or think you may want to consider them, we recommend reviewing Emory’s Department of Accessibility Services website to better understand how to request services, if necessary.
