ECS 101


The Wise Heart Seeks Knowledge is Emory’s motto and serves as our guide for ECS 101.

We want all our undergraduates to flourish during their time at Emory and beyond. All Emory College First-Year students participate in the same experiences (First-Year Residential, ECS 101 and Health 100) that teach academic and community policies and expectations. Our collective goal is to present information at the right time as you transition from being a high school student to an Emory student.

You may hear about the student flourishing themes (Community Building, Health and Well-Being and Purpose & Pathways) in each of these areas. ECS 101 specifically sets the stage for how you can flourish academically, socially and personally during your 4 years at Emory.

Mark your calendar for a special opportunity coming up soon - the Academic Showcase on Friday, October 14 from 11AM - 1PM. You'll get the chance to meet representatives from Emory College's academic departments and programs - all in one place!

Domestic transient study (permission to take work at another institution in the United States and US Territories) is normally granted only for summer enrollment. Students who wish to take summer work elsewhere in the United States after their first year, or before a student has earned 64 credit hours, at Emory must secure written permission from the Office for Undergraduate Education before the end of the preceding spring semester and must not be on academic probation after the completion of spring semester.

Emory College of Arts and Sciences allow students to withdraw from courses without academic penalty before the end of the sixth week of the relevant semester. (Note that new Emory College students - first-year students, Oxford continuees, or transfer students - may use the later Extended Partial Withdrawal deadline during one of their first two semesters).

Withdrawal forms may be found on OUE Resources A-Z. You may wish to speak with your OUE Advisor before deciding to withdraw from a course. Go to College Connect to schedule an appointment.

Transferable Skills & Skill-Building

Back to top

OUE offers coaching appointments with staff as well as peer coaches. Coaches work collaboratively with students to identify next steps, solutions, build academic skills, or resource opportunities. Our staff coaches typically work with students who are referred from faculty or other departments and those who need acute on-going intervention. 

OUE offers a variety of interactive workshops and events where students can learn and practice applying new academic skills. 

Cover letters should NOT list everything in your resume; rather they should highlight a few relevant experiences, skills, or student involvements related to the position. They are usually one page in length, free from grammatical errors, and use the language of the job description and more. Visit Emory's Career Center to learn how to create or get a cover letter critiqued. 

At the Emory Libraries, we offer a wide range of workshops where you can develop valuable research and digital literacy skills to help you succeed during your time at Emory and in your future endeavors. Workshops are available online and in-person.

 Emory University has a team of peer mentors and staff trained and dedicated to help you understand your financial choices and increase your personal financial wellness. Reach out to financialliteracy@emory.edu for a one-on-one session or presentation today! 

Networking is an important social muscle we develop and strengthen with courage…and practice.

Those willing to reach out and build new connections have historically had a smoother transition away from being a full-time student to working or earning an advanced degree in a chosen field or industry after graduation.  Before approaching someone, it is generally a good idea to have a basic grasp of what you want to get out of the conversation. Many times, people will have unrealistic or skewed expectations for networking and this hinders their ability to do so.

Emory's Career Center has resume templates and critiquing services that will help you with your resume.
