Pre-Orientation Programs

New Student Programs

New Student Programs is currently working with campus partners to re-imagine our orientation and move-in experience to adhere to public safety guidelines. As exact dates and details are determined, we will update our website and share with all incoming students via email.

International Student Welcome 

Due to safety guidelines related to COVID-19, the International Student Welcome has transitioned to a virtual format. This August we will be providing a mix of online modules and live webinars for both incoming students and their families. In the coming weeks, incoming students will be assigned Academic Fellow Mentors to answer additional questions and provide mentorship virtually. We will update our website and share additional information with incoming students via email shortly. 


Ignite is a pre-orientation program for Oxford College and Emory College students that typically takes place immediately before New Student Orientation.

Due to safety guidelines related to COVID-19, Ignite Leadership will not be offered in-person this August. We are currently exploring a virtual option for the fall. As details and plans develop, we will update our website and share with incoming students via email.
