Keep In Touch
Understanding how to send and retrieve messages and/or packages before and during the program is essential for all students and parents.
Before the Program
Once a student is enrolled in the program they become a part of the Emory Community as a non-degree seeking student and will be assigned an Emory email address. As such, students will receive separate communications from several departments on campus, such as Student Financial Services and EmoryCard, with information regarding the student's account.
Beginning in March, it is imperative that all students begin checking their Emory email at least once weekly to ensure important messages are not missed regarding bill pay and status of photo uploads prior to arrival to campus.
How to check email:
Please note: Email accounts are only active during the summer session. The Emory Pre-College Office and course instructors will not use your Emory email to send communications.
During the Program
Receiving Mail and Telephone Messages
Mail: Students may receive mail at the following address:
Emory University Pre-College Program
Candler Library, Suite 200
550 Asbury Circle
Atlanta, GA 30322
Though there are no telephone lines in individual rooms, courtesy phones are available for student use on each hallway. These courtesy phones can be used to make brief local phone calls, and can be used in case of emergency. Cell phones are permitted in the residence hall. In the event of an emergency, please call the number listed below. Be sure to inform whomever you speak with that you are trying to get an emergency message to someone in the Pre-College Program. State the student's name and that he or she is in staying in Dobbs Hall.
Emory Police: (404) 727-6111
Anytime between Midnight and 9:00 a.m.
The Emory Pre-College Program Residence Life staff follows the Emory CEPAR (Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response) protocols. If an emergency occurs, CEPAR sends instructions to the campus community, usually via text message or email. Then, the Campus Life Professional on-call (CLP) along with other campus life administrators respond based on instructions. In addition to the CLP, the RA on-call and CEPAR, our staff also works closely with Emory Police and Emory Hospital. Emory Residence Life undergraduate student staff members undergo comprehensive training and are supervised by full-time Emory Residence Life professionals. We maintain an RA (resident assistant) to student ratio of 1:10, and Pre-College students travel off-campus only under the supervision of our staff.
Matriculated Emory Pre-College students are required to enter their cell phone number and carrier when they first log into OPUS. This number will then receive a test message with any campus alerts that CEPAR sends out. Click here for more information on Emory's Emergency Notification System and "Just in Time" policies.
