At Oxford College, the rich variety of interesting, fun and worthwhile co-curricular activities provides students with an extraordinary college experience.
From the very first week of classes, first year students are invited to take part in college life. New Oxford students don't spend a year or two "on the bench!" The fun and lively fall Club Fair features all of Oxford's organizations and the sophomore leaders of these groups enthusiastically recruit new student members. At Oxford, first year students are starters on varsity athletic teams, leaders in Student Government, and are selected as lead performers in theater, chorale, and dance. In short, Oxford is a place where first year students quickly feel that they are an important and active part of the campus life.
Student leadership at Oxford is not just a buzz word. Because second year students function as "seniors," they must be ready to assume key roles on campus. For both first and second year students, Oxford develops student leaders through an assortment of popular leadership programs of the highest quality. Since Oxford students are also Emory students, weekend activity options include on-campus entertainment as well as events offered on the Atlanta campus. Each semester, Oxford's Student Activities Committee (SAC) plans an assortment of band parties, coffee houses, cultural events, and other fun activities. The free shuttle takes students to and from the Atlanta campus each day, so that Oxford students may choose among on campus activities, Atlanta campus events, as well as social/cultural/recreational events in the city of Atlanta.
