Students having fun on Emory quad

Emory College Community

Emory College shares the Atlanta campus with our undergraduate business and nursing programs as well as with our graduate and professional schools, adding a big energy and wide perspective to undergraduate life.

Located in historic Druid Hills a few miles from downtown Atlanta, the tree-lined Emory campus has a nature preserve at its edge, and at its center, gray and white marble buildings capped with clay tile roofs.

Our diverse community is involved and committed to making the world a better place. And life on the Emory College campus is busy and fun—whether you’re shopping at the Tuesday Farmer’s Market outside of Cox Hall, laughing with friends at a Wonderful Wednesday, or competing with your residence hall in Songfest.

“Emory does first-year move-in with passion. When your car drives up to your residence hall, over 100 Emory students and Orientation Leaders will be bouncing up and down with welcome signs, dancing to music, and waving their hands in welcome. You're finally home at Emory, and we can't wait to welcome you.”

“TEDxEmory presents us with inspiring TED talks in various forms such as live jazz performances, modern dances, and meditation. Personal event highlights for me this year were sitting in the front row, enjoying a spectacular performance by Emory Jazz Ensemble!”
