Meet Emory's Class of 2024

Oxford College welcomed first-year students.

Eager to begin their Emory experience, members of the Class of 2024 launched their academic journeys, prepared to embrace the adventure of college life — even as they know that it will be a year like no other.

While starting college in the midst of a global pandemic required new plans and campus protocols, those adaptations did little to diminish the enthusiasm of hundreds of first-year Emory students who officially began classes on Wednesday, Aug. 19.

To help limit campus density in response to COVID-19, Emory’s first-year students were given the option to live on campus this fall or learn from home; most upper class students will continue to engage in remote learning this semester — a decision that will continue to be evaluated for the spring 2021 semester.

At Oxford College, about 360 first-year students will live on campus while just over 100 have chosen to study online.
