NEW ACADEMIC YEAR BEGINS
 
WELCOME
Meet Emory's Class of 2021

They come from as far away as Ghana and as close as Atlanta. They have performed at Carnegie Hall, founded nonprofits and graduated as valedictorian. Get to know the newest Emory Scholars, selected for their achievements and potential.

 

IMPACT
New PhD students bring diverse talents to Emory
Undergraduates aren't the only new students arriving on campus. Emory also welcomes hundreds of new students seeking the university's highest degree, the PhD, pursuing original research on subjects ranging from chemistry to climate change.

Emory Insider: Traditions
 
Emory Insider

 

The Coca-Cola Toast: Each fall, the Coca-Cola Toast welcomes new Emory students to campus; each spring, graduating students raise a Coke bottle to bid farewell to their college years. The tradition commemorates Emory's relationship with The Coca-Cola Company, including Asa Griggs Candler's 1914 "Million Dollar Letter" and Robert W. and George Woodruff's 1979 gift of $105 million.
