About Oxford College
Emory University offers two academically equivalent yet distinctively different educational programs for freshmen and sophomores. Oxford College is located 38 miles east of Atlanta in the town of Oxford, Georgia, on the campus where Emory was founded in 1836. Nine hundred students, one fifth of the Emory freshman and sophomore classes, enroll on the Oxford campus where they pursue a liberal arts-intensive program for the first two years of their Emory baccalaureate degree.
The Board of Counselors for Oxford College of Emory University had its original meeting on June 4, 1971.
The purpose of the Oxford College Alumni Association (Alumni Board) is to support and promote educational excellence at Oxford College by creating and sustaining a mechanism through which Oxford College can communicate regularly with and serve its alumni, as well as a means through which alumni may communicate with and serve Oxford College.
